I started marking a lot of fish so I put out my lines. Got a cute 23.5" near the mouth. Not big enough for the tourney but big enough to eat. I looped around inside the mouth of IC seeing fish but no takers. At about 9:00am I spotted some surface activity, not real bustin/jumpin but more like swirls and torpedos. I pulled in my lines and eased over to them. I saw a swirl and cast to it. BANG! Got a nice 27.5" for the tourney. I took my picture and let him go. I cruised around a bit and cast to another swirl. BANG 2! Got a nicer 29" for the tourney. These two casting fish bit a 1/2 oz white bucktail jig. Just like that (snap) the fish were gone so I started trolling again.
I was heading out of IC and got bit just past the last boat dock, near shore. A barely big-enough-to-filet 22". I looked around the R35 bend but didn't see enough. I went back down to R32 and started trolling again. I was right at R31 passing another tourney boat when I got bit again. A nice 25.5". Too bad I had two in the well. 3 of the 4 trolling fish bit a Bomber 3.5" long-A deep in silver flash/blue back, same as the previous 2 trips. The fourth fish bit a Flicker Shad in the same color pattern. Maybe there's something to it.
After I took the water temps I cruised up Hales Creek looking and past CG point and there abouts but didn't see much, at least not enough to run lines. And that was it. Two for the tourney and two for the box. I didn't get out this week cause the car was in the shop. Bummer. Monday looks good.
