A one-man wolfpack...
I wasn't able to make it out yesterday; are the leaves making it tough, or are we not quite there yet? Thanks...
I like the "five minute breather" part; time for quiet reflection and what not...I got out last evening for a couple hours. This is what was working for me:
Find a BIG pool. Sit down, take a 5 minute breather and look for baitfish crashing the surface or making any kind of disturbance. Throw a weightless tube on a 4/0 hook, something goldish or with gold flakes. Twitch it like a fluke.
Local fish were digging it last night.
We have about the same thing going on. Seems like this past week it started heating back up. The fellas floated this weekend. I heard and saw pics of some 18's, a 19", and a heart breaking 19.5"er. (See if Stucky can post a report and a pic).Leaves are not terrible yet. Saw some surface action tonight and got two including a 16.5" on lightly weighted josh but got around dozen more on a tube still including another 16" and an 18". They are still loving them crays, can't wait to find some busting on big schools of shad here soon. Should be any day!
