My goal when I fish is to try to get a limit of 6 fish period, whether they are 1-2 pound average or 3-4 pound average or heavier. I have already caught my over 10# LMB in Florida but would like to catch an over 10# LMB in AZ. I know my time will come. One of the best days on Okeechobee I had was in the month of May when the bigger fish were leaving the shorelines with visible submergent cover (bullrushes, cattails, and maiden cane). The pattern was to fish the other edges and points of this cover. Water depth was only 4-5 feet. One day, from first light to 2 p.m. I caught one of my best 10-bass limits which was around 44#: (9#6 oz, 8# 4 oz, 8# 4 oz, 4# 8 oz, 4#, 3#8 oz, 3#, 2# 8 oz, 2#, 1#). I just followed the pattern and got a mixture of fish. Other times there were schools of 3-4# LMB and the crankbait pattern I used to catch them would get me a 35# 10-fish limit. I remember several tournaments that I had my limit in 15 minutes after my first cast. Those tournaments started at 7 a.m. and at 7:15 a.m. I had my 10-fish limit of 1-2# LMB. So again, I try to get my limit of fish, whether they are 1-2# size, 3-4# size or larger. 8) :?: Howard, is that 5 fish for the boater and 5 fish for the nonboater??? I've never heard of a 10 fish tournament.
