Saturday fishing with Albert

Trip Info


This past Saturday I went out with Albert.  We launched the boat at 10:30 AM and Albert asked his usual question “where are we going to fish”?  I told him looking at the surface water temperature which was almost 70 degrees and the water being calm our best bet was to fish in around 2 to 4 feet of water.  We went to one of my favorite coves on the east side of the lake.  I started in 12 feet of water and ended in two feet.  Visibility was clear and we could see the bass.  Albert may have thought we were in too shallow water but I knew the larger bass usually are in the shallower water.  When Albert cast out his line we were in bout 3 feet of water and he threw towards the shoreline which was about one foot deep.  Half way back to the boat he got whacked big time and I knew he had a good size fish on.  When we netted the bass and brought it aboard Albert had a huge grin from ear to ear.  It weighed in at 10.5 lbs and after taking a few pictures (see attached) we released it and watched it swim back to shallow water.  This was Albert’s biggest bass so far at this lake.  It was very exciting!!!  There was a boat next to us where Jay and Casey were fishing after watching Albert bring in his bass they threw to the same area using a fluke bait and landed a 3+ lb bass (see photo).  Now I headed out to the vine yards and using the same technique landed a bass weighing 2 lbs.  Heading back towards home we trolled along the west side and Albert caught another 2 pounder.  we went in early after enjoying a great day and Albert still had that grin can you blame him!!
‘til next time… good fishing!!!!!!!
