Fish are schooling and the bite is hot.
<p>Fished with the same guy the last 3 days in a row. His wife bought him 3 days of fishing for his 50th birthday. When it was all over he told me that he was going to tell his wife that he wanted to move here. Over the course of 3 days we boated around 200 fish. The schools we hit were on fire. On the last day early in the morning he finally got the bite he was looking for and the fish jumped by the boat and came off. I believe that it was 9 to 10 lbs. It was huge. We caught fish and crankbaits , jigs and topwater. The topwater worked best when they came up schooling. We could have had some really great pictures but with the weather being so hot my camera wouldn't work. It gave me a message saying that the camera was to hot and would shut off in 5 seconds. This is the first time I have ever had that happen. I did get a few pictures of some good ones that I caught early in the morning though. We probably had 40 fish around the 4 pound mark or bigger. Best 5 went 25 to 30 lbs each day.
Boy what a storm that came through on Saturday. I thought we where going to see the wizard of oz. At the dock we tied up on there where 5 or 6 other boats hiding on it also that had pulled in straight in the slips which ended up being the wrong thing to do. The wind got up so much that it was pushing the water over the back of the boats and one started to sink. There where 7 or 8 people trying to keep it a float. We had a trash can and anything we could grad that would hold water trying to dump it out before it totally sank. The whole back of the boat was under water. We also had tied ropes to the boat lift that was in the air to keep her form going down. The bilges just couldn't keep up. But we ended up winning the battle.
Good luck and let them go after a quick picture.
