Lake O’Dowd – Again

July 4, 2016

July 2, 2016

Given the number of fish I missed in the pads yesterday on O’Dowd I couldn’t help but want to try to a top-water frog in the pads and assorted slop.  Turned out it wasn’t the right call.  I tried for about half an hour and not even a strike.  The sunrise more than made up for the lack of activity though, as did the loons who were singing away.

Just a gorgeous sunrise.  Not always about catching fish I suppose, but that does help.

Started buzzing the edges of the milfoil and caught several nice bass, the biggest was again eighteen inches and missed another.  Caught another plump bass in a transition area of milfoil and lily pads.  Caught one on the Pit Boss and two more smaller ones later in the day on the buzz bait.  Fished a few new spots and had at least six blow ups in heavy slop on the Pit Boss, which I had rigged Texas style, weightless, and was dragging over and around the pads.   The bass were crashing it hard but I kept missing.  Pretty versatile bait with  killer action.
