Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report
Yesterday Scott took out regular client
Frank Delucas and his friend Frank. They met Scott at the ramp at 6:30am and
they left the ramp loaded with Chug Bugs and Senkos. Anticipation ran high as
they headed to the south end with of the Farm with the knowledge that was based
on the last couple weeks of reports. The weatherman gave a good call for 5-10
MPH winds which made the excitement higher: top water was what they came for and
with Chug Bugs they began catching bass right away. Anticipation was replaced
with expectation as the second bass of the day weighed a healthy 6.5 pounds.
They spent the entire day fishing the heavy wood in pinball alley and to the
east and the catch was a pretty evenly matched throughout the day between the
Chug Bug and the Senkos. Fishing both the 5” and 7” Senkos in dark colors it was
determined in short order that the 5” Senko was the one the bass preferred
the most. The bass averaged between 3 and 6.5 pounds with a couple of bigger
ones lost. The guys all agreed that they had a lot of fun and called it a day at
1:00pm with over 50 bass landed. Fishing the wood is tough but more made it to
the boat then those that got away. Score another great day for Mr. Frank Delucas
and his friend.
Today I had Brad Hill and his son Grant from Huntsville, Alabama for a 1/2
day AM trip. As with all our trips lately the anticipation for top water was
high as we headed south towards the Farm. This bass fishing thing is kind of new
for 12-year old Grant, but guess who landed the first fish, and for that matter
the second one also. It took him no time to be casting the spinning equipment
like a pro. We did manage several on chug bugs, but the switch to Senkos proved
to produce more bites and fish to the boat. Brad nailed his first 6-pound bass
early on and led the way for big fish.
Somehow, Grant forgot to get any sleep last night so it wasn't too long
before we lost him to a bit of a power nap. However, Dad was having no part of
snoozing and continued to place a lot of bass in the boat.
We switched to top water occasionally, but the return to Senkos came quickly.
It was a morning of bump the stump to be successful. At morning close it was the
Hills trip 43 which for 4 hours of fishing was quite a respectable trip to
We have some openings and would be more than glad to introduce you to this
fantastic fishing. Give us a call, you will definitely be glad you did. Inquire
about our summer sale - it's a fantastic deal. See you out there. Say hi if you
get the chance.
