Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report
It seems as if we are stuck at that just short of ten pounds mark. Chris
Corum decided to opt for some warm weather fishing without wind. It seems that
his luck with the wind is such that most of his cooler weather trips here have
also been met with the challenge of fighting hefty winds.
The day started out fantastic with this 8-pound gal taking the presentation
early on. She was joined with 5 other players rather quickly, but as quickly as
things began, things came to a halt.
To say it was a warm day would be an understatement of grandiose proportions,
as the sun rose into an almost cloudless sky, and the wind conditions were
non-existent. However, this in no way deterred Chris who is a true and
inveterate fisherman. Multiple baits were tried, and many locations, but only
one more bass was added to the count for the balance of the day.
The fish caught were all fat and healthy which indicates that they are
feeding well. However it seems all the feeding activity is taking place at some
level below the surface. We marked large schools of shad in several place, but
the bass that we also marked in the same areas just wouldn't play.
See you out there.
