Did you have an awesome Memorial Day weekend? Did you get to do any fishing? I managed to get out and have some fun. I made a short stop Wednesday and had a couple miss my frog up in the lily pads and one miss on a soft plastic creature bait, but no luck landing any bass. Thursday I slipped out just before the storm hit and had one blow up on my frog, but missed it completely. I kept working the frog through the lily pads in hopes of a huge bass hiding in them, but no luck. I switched over to a 3.5” creature bait and started pitching it around the brushes near shore. I felt a light tap on my life and then hit began to swim off and I set the hook hard on a nice bass. It wasn’t a monster, but the strike felt so good. Since the deadline for the newspaper was early, I can’t report my weekend of fishing, but hopefully it is going to great.
