|Luc awarded with a 3.5 pound LMB after making a great cast in less than ideal conditions.|
|The first bass of the day a 2pounder|
|My three pounder, finally a bass on topwater|
|Another for Luc|
We made our way deeper in the eastside. I managed another fish around two pounds. And Luc also had another. We continued to miss several more. By this time the fog was letting up and the sun began poking through. It was now a race to find shaded portions of lake.
|Fog starting to wear off|
The next hour or so we kept missing fish. Eventually after so dead time without any action I switched earlier than planned to my five weight with a sinking line. I was getting tired of casting the 8 weight and an air resistant popper. Luc joined me and we started half heartedly to tempt a bass from the deeps. I had a few short strikes but could not get one on nor could Luc. The clouds began blocking the sun and we switched back to the poppers. As we moved back into a cove we fished earlier, Luc made a great cast in a pocket just under a dock wire, under a tree and surrounded by a submerged log. All the sudden I heard a violent thrash of water I moved my eyes to look and Luc was on. He managed to turn the fish away from trouble and I helped land the 3.5 pound bass. We quit not long after that around 10:30. All in all it was a good day and between the two of us we had at least twenty blowups. Unfortunately we didn't do our part even though the fish were cooperating with topwater. Despite the fact we were sucking we had a great time.
Water temps were 78 degrees. Fog in the morning and pleasant when we left at 10:30 although it was staring to get hot.
