    Default July 9th Double Report

    Much like yesterday's trip we found the fish not wanting what we had to offer. The tide was coming in good and we scored a nice one on the pad edge. One is luck two is a possible pattern. After that nice LGMouth we went on a long dry spell with a few pushes away from the baits. At golden hour we pushed back deep into the pads but did not see much moving around. Tide dropped out early so abandoned that idea for main creek. At dark we found them and landed several and lost even more. Hind sight would have had me change lures and I am sure the big moon feed was gonna last till midnight. But you just can not fish all night sometimes.



    I set the camera for a long exposure but had a little shake in this picture.. but you get idea.

    Lou and George frothed the water to no avail. Low tide at launch, George gets a nice bass on a popper in the first few casts of the afternoon.



    Nada after that. Toward the end we all moved to a section where the PP have been cooperative at high tide.
    ONE shot...premature hookset...





    The full moon sure was purty but, sure didn't help. Lou and George were good company and I'll see'm again in August!

    I know the tides don't always cooperate with when folks want to fish, but at Mattawoman, incoming tide allows the fish to go way, way back into the lillies and vegetation...my favorite time is outgoing tide about halfway through the outgoing cycle when the falling water brings the fish to the edges of the vegetation...

    Interesting. Someday, I will get to the point of going beyond the blind squirrel syndrome and will know exactly what I'm doing. Until then, I'm just happy to be out there......

    That is all that matters, Stan...as long as what you are doing gives you the results you want...no need to change...
