Have Water, Will Fish
Hit my buddy's private little 17 acre lake last nite. Wind was blowing horrible when I got there, making fishing very tough. Only had caught a couple of bucket mouths when all of the sudden, the wind died down. Lightning strikes way off in the distance made me consider getting off water, but suddenly the bite turned on and I actually had a stretch where I caught nine fish in a row on nine casts. I have done this with bluegills, but never with bass! Most were about two pounders, but did manage one hawg who I weighed at 5 lbs, 3 ounces. Understand this is a tremendous body of water which doesn't get alot of pressure, but WOW, this was fantastic. Not sure if it was the change in the weather that turned them on, but for about ten minutes I had more fun than I have ever had. It was a shame it got dark so quick, and with the lightning approaching, I ended the evening.
