I took my father in law fishing Tuesday and the bass cooperated well. My father in law does not fish as much as my Dad and I could tell it wore him out but he hung in there pretty well for someone 70 years old. He wanted to get some fish to eat so we went a caught a few crappie but I could not find any the right size so we abandoned that and released the few small ones to go bass fishing. The bass are in all stages of spawning and we found fish at almost every stop. I saw several big large mouths on beds back in a large cove down lake. I could watch bass on beds all day long but I don't think he could see them so we left them and went looking for pre-spawn fish. I took him out to main lake and gave him a 1/2 oz. white and silver Rooster Tail and that worked out well. We found some fish schooling in a lower lake creek mouth and they were aggressive. I caught several on a McStick casting to bass that were chasing 6 inch blue backs on the surface. These fish were more aggressive than the other day and they ate the McStick and the Rooster tail pretty good. They all looked like footballs and they were all spitting up blue backs. I tried a top water plug again with no success but the McStick was working so I stuck with it most of the afternoon. We also caught fish on shaky heads. I used the new 1/8th ounce Gamakatsu Alien heads with a Big Bites Shakin' Squirrel but I am sure these fish would have hit a Spot Sticker or Spot Remover rigged with a Finesse worm. We worked a 100 Yard Stretch of a steep clay bank that had a bunch of lay downs and caught several just keeper sized spotted bass. We had a big flock of cormorants with what looked like a few loons mixed in ( I counted over 20 birds) come in on us and I think they drove the bait and bass in towards the boat because both of us hooked a nice spotted bass right when the birds were diving. We worked that bank with the Rooster Tail, McStick and an old modified Bandit 300 cranked through the rocks and clay and caught a couple then we returned to the creek mouth right around dark and caught two nice sized schooling spots before calling it a day. Our best 5 would have gone around 15-16 pounds so we didnít catch the big toads that I knew were around but it was a good day of catching so I am grateful. Almost every lure I have thrown except a top water has caught fish this past week and I know some people are catching them with surface lures so now is a great time to go! Good fishing and God Bless!
