Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report
Last week, while Scott was busy working on the lake, I
spent my days in Woodruff, SC. watching and flying large scale radio
controlled aircraft. The fly-in is the "big Daddy" of what is known as "giant
scale fly-ins" and literally their are hundreds and hundreds of pilots,
planes, and friends that converge for this event.
The report that follows is based on the results of Scott and his anglers
endeavors and triumphs.
5/21/2006 I had out Frank Fasano
and his son Frank for a day of bass fishing. My regular client Frank Delucas
and his friend Eric followed me in his boat. We Left the ramp at 6:00am and
headed to the south end of the farm. Frank had some motor problems but
straighten them out quickly and the Chug Bugs started flying has soon as the
trolling motors entered the water. The top water bite took a while to get
started but once they began eating the Chug Bug the fun began. The top water
bite slowed down around 10:30 and a switch to Senko’s kept us catching bass
until we called it a day at 12:00pm. The Chug Bug produced to big bass one
weighing 9lbs and one weighing 6.5lbs. The best part of the day was when Frank
Jr. landed an 8.5 pound beauty on a 5” Senko. He did an excellent job keeping
the bass out of the wood and landed his largest bass to date. Don Willis was
next to us when Frank caught the bass and recorded the entire fight and made a
DVD for Frank. By the time we called it a day our boat landed 45 bass up to
9lbs and Frank’s boat landed 12 bass up to 4lbs.
5/22/2006 I had out Mike Thomas from Fort Pierce, FL and his friend Doug from
Boca Raton, FL. We left the ramp with great anticipation of yet another great
day of bass fishing. It did not take long for the first bass to give in to the
irresistible sound of the Chug Bug. The bass ate the Chug Bug all day long,
and an occasional bass was caught on a black & blue 3/8oz jig and a 5”Senko.
By the time we called it a day at 2:30 72 bass where landed of which over 62
where caught on Chug Bugs. Mike and Doug caught all their bass on Chug Bugs
including 3 bass over 6 pounds.
5/23/3006 I had out returning
client Mike Moore from Hendersonville, NC. We left the ramp at 6:00am and
headed to the south end of the Farm. You know you’re in for a good day when
you both catch a bass on the first cast. The bass blasted the Chug Bugs most
of the day and if you stick with it you will be ready for them when they start
eating it again. We did switch over to 5” Senko’s for a short period to give
our wrists a rest and caught bass immediately. We finished the day the way we
started with the bass hammering the Chug Bug. We called it a day at 2:00pm
landing 70 bass up to 9 pounds.
