Finally for the first time ever in my life I got to take a weeks vacation (I don't count my leave while in the military). The highlight of my week off was going over to Alum Creek with Intimidator to hook up with Lordofthepunks. First time ever fishing out of a bass boat and I must say I really enjoyed myself. Kinda fun flying across the water in a boat like that:D. LOTP was a very good host and did his best to get us 3 on some fish. We had some laughs,miscasts,and managed to boat some fish. I didn't catch alot but somehow I did manage to boat the biggest of the night ( LM that went 2lb,maybe a tad over that). I think LOTP was just being nice to us and not trying to make us feel bad by catching all the monsters. I don't know how many he landed but it was far more than myself or Intimidator did. So thanks LOTP for making my vacation that much better and I'm glad to have finally met him. Hellava guy that I hope realizes all his bass fishing dreams. I didn't get to fish all the places that I was looking at but I still had a good week off. 5 different bodies of water and a bunch of bass,bluegill,and cats caught. Now if that one over at Alum hadn't got off about 10-15ft from the boat it'd been even better. I think that's the first fish I've ever lost after hooking one on a Chatterbait. I picked up a few new things to use on my future outings so that's a plus as well.

Hopefully we can all do it again! Punk was a great host, I learned a few things about night fishing that really has helped me out and got to see "Crazy Electronics" in Action...The Black and Blue Keitechs that I dyed have been tremendous so far at CJ, I have fished a couple nights since then and caught alot of Bass. I really didn't realize that the crawdads come out "in force" at night...Man, those Bass just love that night-time "Freshwater Lobster"!

It was definitely cool to see LOTP use the electronics on his rig. He's a real down to earth guy that has his mind set on obtaining his bass fishing dreams. With his determination I wouldn't doubt that here very shortly he'll realize everyone of them. I still think that Intimidator scared the beejeezus outta him with that one cast:D. Me and LOTP mighta caught a tree limb but we didn't come close to hooking the guy driving the boat:D,lol. I was glad to have finally seen and fished Alum Creek,seems to be a very wonderful place to spend some time. I'll tell you what though,when LOTP gunned it after getting outta the no wake zone I was surprised. I'd never been in a boat that could go that fast other than one other time when I was about 10 or so and then it was for going tubing (which I wasn't allowed to do because I was considered too young/small:(). I didn't intend on catching anything but bass and bluegills( with my 3yr old) the whole week but when a nice 5/6lb channel slams a bass jig n pig what's a fellow supposed to do. Too bad I have to go to work here in about 3 hours,I could get used to being on vacation:D.:D Sucks to have to pay bills,lol.

Yep, I hope LOTP realizes his dream also...I like to see "Good Guys" like him succeed. Confidence is the key! BELIEVE PUNK, BELIEVE!:):):)

I'm usually a little more "animated & loud" than I was that night,ask anyone that knows me:D. I was concentrating on not looking like a clown out there and catching some fish. I know I only boated the two and had the other two get off around the boat. Hell that was all the bites I had all night long. Of course when compared to Intimidator and you I think I was using way bigger baits at times. I was swinging for the fences:D. You deserve every kind word that's come your way. You said that night you need to get better,is there one particular thing you need to improve upon to really make it all come together?

Confidence.....he has all the tools, period! Now he has to "Man Up" and fish, and quit second guessing himself! Once he gets his mind on track, he could be dangerous!:) Then hopefully one day when he's a Bass fishing Legend, I can tell my son that I was able to fish with "The" LordOfThePunks!:):):)LOL

lol, long ways to go before that happens.

i have weaknesses, drop shotting, suspended fish, decision making, overcoming adversity and CONSISTENCY. thats the biggest one, going out and catching 15lbs one day and then the next day getting 3lbs is something i struggle with and it all comes down to making the right adjustments when its needed and knowing when to rely on what worked yesterday and when to pull the plug on something that worked yesterday.

i have a long ways to go, but i appreciate the vote of confidence.

Alum is central ohios funhouse. If possible fish during the week. And before memorial and after labor day, like any other place. Mid oct thru nov weekends are good too. Hone your finnesse jig n pig (or similar) skillz and hit some submerged rockpikes for nice smallies.

LOTP put us on some of those submerged rockpiles I do believe but the bigger smallies just wasn't cooperating that night. Still had fun trying to land the small ones though. I didn't even tie on a jig n pig that night (which is unusual for me not to use one) and I own zero shakey head stuff (which what LOTP was using alot) but I did get to try out some of the black lures that I don't use that much for some reason.

You'll get it all to come together here soon. Everyone around you (including us on here) believes that you've got what it takes so now it's up to you to think the same way.

I was able to bounce Keitech's off the bottom and the smallies seemed to like them:)...I had a few come off at the boat until I went with a larger jig hook.

I'd like to hit it again in the fall...after labor day!:)

Coves, points, rockpiles, deep, shallow, rip-rap, :T, submerged trees/brush/stumps, creek, spillway, alums got a little bit of everything. Sometimes a random musky too. Have fun. I like to hit it further upstream and follow creek bed, but sometimes the steeper drops off the points can be on fire. Need to get out there this year. Youll probably tear em up with those keitechs this fall.

I am hoping to hit Alum during the week sometime between Aug 29 and Sept 2nd.....than maybe again a little later in the fall. I am looking forward to it since I have never been on it before!!

JamesT is correct...this is not your typical COE reservoir, they did not bulldoze it flat or take everything out...they left everything...bridges, guardrails along roadbeds, full foundations, trees, etc...along with the humps, flats, cliffs, rocks, and everything else, this lake has it all when it comes to structure.
It's too bad it has so much traffic!:)
