Must be a bass tournament on Lake Seminole tomorrow. Dozens of bass boats have fished past the dock this morning and more coming down the channel. Pine pollen covering the surface, so it's difficult to see. No bass beds in my dock area yet. It's hot today.
Lakes back down some, clearing up a bit if you're out of the main lake and rivers. Caught a mess of fish off the new dock. Had em for supper with cheese grits, baked beans, hush puppies and sweet iced tea.
Tournament fishermen showing up today to begin hunting big bass for an upcoming tournament. This means, the boat will be constantly rocking is i go speck or panfish fishing. Some of those bass boats cost as much as my house.
Overcast and windy day with threatening clouds with showers kept me from going out on the boat. Wanting some fish, caught three nice bass off the dock on a Rapala. More than enough for the two of us. Had four more strikes, but they missed getting hooked.
Still enjoying the dock. Catching enough to satisfy our fish needs with warmouth, bream and shellcrackers. Have also hung into a couple huge bass, lost both in the bonnets, a stump or whatever is out there. Next time the boat is in the water, will check that spot out. Can't beat those warmouth perch for eating. A thick fish, and some are taking a 7 inch black plastic worm.
With recent and current rains, I've opted to stay off Lake Seminole and do some dock fishing. Not catching any limits off the dock, but am getting all we need for eating. Shellcrackers, bream and bass have been doing well up until this last week. Don't know if it's due to all the rain or what, but the bass bite has been off. Bream and shellcrackers have slowed down at the dock too. I'm right next to Cypress Pond. Bass pictured was caught off the dock last week. An 8 foot gator almost got it before i could net it. How close? Well, the gator knocked scales off one side right behind the gills. If this keeps on, gator control will be notified.
That’s a nice one Son. You must be fishing after those afternoon rains we been getting. It came a good one in Miller county today about 5:00.
Can’t stay ahead of the grass. It’s growing fast with all that rain.
