Old Blue

June 8, 2014

May 31, 2014

I had about an hour and a half to sneak in some fishing and went wading at Hyland Lake.  The water has greened up on Hyland with a lot floating vegetation, i.e., large clumps of algae blooming and other green slime that looks like it crawled from some sci-fi movie.  Saw one large female bass patrolling the shallows with a small male bass nearby – so some fish are still in the spawning mode.  No takes on spinner baits, cranks or jig worm.  I had to switch to Old Blue, a blue-white jointed Rapala, to generate some action.  I ended up catching 5 bass, no hawgs though, in the time that I had, plus I missed a couple so the action was pretty good.

You can see from the photos what I was talking about in regards to the water conditions.  Pretty soupy.
