Those blade baits I made earlier seem to be working.
Here's a pic of a nice 29 incher I caught this morning. Weighed her @ 8 pounds even and took a quick photo. She inhaled 5/8 ounce, Green Chartreuse colored, blade bait, one that I made. The water is dropping but has been high and dirty, so I needed something with some vibration. She put up a nice fight and didn't want to get in the net. Less than a mile from my home.





Sorry about the white guy legs, first day it's been warm enough for shorts. I'm not into spray tan. w00t

Oh, was it the weekend? I hadn't noticed.Sly Yes the water has been up, dirty, full of debris for some time now due to the almost every day rains we have been having. Couldn't wait any longer to get out. I was back home before the crowds (3 boats) showed up and they all went the other direction.

Nice fish Dave. I'm still fishing from my deck! Someday this river will get back to normal and I'll be able to put a boat in the water. The water has finally left my house and now it's time to get the mud out for the second time this spring/summer.

Ed,

You mean you haven't converted the ground floor into your own personal bait tank? I don't envy the job ahead of you. The swamp smell from the mud/silt covering the local ramp was oppressive. I suppose you spray everything down with bleach once you think you have it clean?

LOL..the lower level certainly smells like a bait tank! like they say you get nose blind after awhile. Yes, lots and lots of bleach. Fortunately the depth of the water was only 24". The drywall was installed horizontally separating the garage from the storage portion of the lower level so I only have to pull out the first panel that has mold growing. Since rebuilding from the 2001 flood this is the first time we've had water so we have been very fortunate. After the insurance adjuster left though I find there is no damage that is covered (including erosion, drywall and insulation) I will be spending some time in the near future with my insurance agent revising my top heavy insurance policy. Something I should have researched and adjusted a long time ago it seems.

Take care,

Excellent fish. Catching it on your own lure only makes it all the better.

Going to reveal my eastern trouty ignorance. What's a blade bait? pictures?
