Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report
First of the month report - sorry for out of sequence.
November started off with a bang as the bass fell for the allure of the topwater charms of a Sebile Splasher 3 1/2" 5/8 oz. (floating) chugger. This bait performed flawlessly, producing a lot of bass as well as the big fish for the morning. Of equal production the long standing allure of the Storm Chug Bug also performed well.
Eben Huston and friend Ron hit the water with me for a beautiful day of topwater action on 11/1 at Farm 13. Chug Bugs were the bait of choice for the entire day of successful fishing with some really nice bass finding their way over the rail. By days end we logged 2 eight pound ladies and a 6.5 to add emphasis to our success.
On the 5th, 6th, and 7th we had our returning clients for what would turn our to be phenomenal success with wild golden shiners. Day one found us working in winds of 35 MPH but that didn't hamper our efforts as we finished out the day with 28 bass in the boat.
Day two with temperatures in the low 40's and winds to 30 MPH we moved to Lake Jackson as the weed growth would help to calm the wave action. Being a two boat trip with friend Don Willis pitching in on boat two we set up in two different spots looking for the action. First on the fish was Don. A phone call, and a short move put both boats 20' apart and the catching was on. With 10-doz. shiners the count by days end was 93 bass caught and released.
Day three we returned to the same location and the catching was again strong in spite of cold temps and strong winds. 97 bass liked the offering of wild shiners.
For pictures of some of this phenomenal fishing go to my photo gallery. So far this month the fishing has been great as you can readily see.
Thanks to our clients, the assist from Don, and the spectacular cooperation of the bass in some very tough conditions.
