Fished off the bank opposite side of the reservoir from the dam from sunset until my eyes could no longer see the tip of my rod.... roughly 45 minutes.
Very first cast had tugs and boinks on a 1/16 oz. darthead 3/0 hook with a 3.5 " Gary Yamamoto Hologram tube in watermelon with small red/large black specks utilizing 6 lb. test line. Most likely juvenile bass or bluegill.
Second cast and I slowed down my retrieve... thump, tug, and the rod tip started pulling down.
Nice little 12-13 incher to the bank.
Clean... nice color... no leeches... clean lateral line.
Next 20 casts found me pulling up a lot of cabbage off the bottom, so I attached a medium size bobber, set the tube about 2' below it, then started casting to the edge of the weed beds and slowly twitching it back to the bank.
Several bass followed in the 10-13" range. There were several blow ups in the weed bed area I was targeting, so I am assuming it was larger bass inhaling frogs.
Cast as close as possible to the edge of the weeds to pop one of them toadsters, but light was quickly fading, and there is nothing worse than hanging up from the bank in the dark.
Called it quits while luck was with me.
Now I know why float tubers love fishing this gem of a lake.
If only I was 100 lbs. lighter.
Does Peterbuilt make float tubes?
Go ahead Big ED.... take your best shot!
