This week I finished up the boat maintenance so after a lower unit oil change, new plugs and wires, a battery, a bilge pump, live well pump, fuel/water separator sensor and fixed a jackplate I was back on the water. Tuesday I was out from 10am till 2pm and even though the temps were in the low to mid 90's the fish were pretty active. I was fishing a point out on the main lake around noon and I saw a school of stripers surface not far from me in less than 10 feet of water. I thought that was interesting for as hot as it was at the time. Soon after that I saw a large school of 2-3 inch bluebacks take shelter under my boat right before a big school of bass went bonkers on the bluebacks. I threw a 5 inch swimbait in the mix but no takers. When the bass quite coming up the water around my boat was cloudy with scales everywhere. That was an incredible feeding frenzy all around my boat and I saw quite a few big bass in the school. I was able to catch a few fish Tuesday throwing a spybait and swimbait. Yesterday it cooled down to the mid 80's with a northeast wind putting some heavy chop on the water. I caught fish on a big 130 whopper plopper knock-off and swimming a swimbait right below the surface. That big 130 size whopper plopper displaces some water and draws a lot of attention when it's choppy. About 9am I was fishing a point in the creek and out of now where stripers just start blowing up all around the boat and I was sitting in less than 10 feet of water. I picked up my pearl swimbait and basically tossed it over the side. I started feeling it getting hit right away and then the striper pictured below took off with it. That was fun. Back out this morning and it was a combo of the swimbait and the big 130 whopper plopper ko. The wind was a little worse today out of the east but If I could find points and humps where the wind wasn't too bad I could throw the topwater stuff and get fish to surface. I also caught some suspended fish with a 3.3 keitech paddletail on a 1/4 leadhead and a small underspin. There's a lot of active feeding fish this week and I think they can sense that cooler weather is on the way. Here's a few pics from the last 3 days.
