Oh yeah, it was nice today!

It was very, very, nice today NC and Skirts was right about the bass bustin' today. Tadmo, they were there, you just needed to be lucky and find 'em.

I debated with myself whether or not to even go to the lake this morning. Checked the Weather Channel and the forecast was thunderstorms in the morning and rain in the afternoon. On the positive side, I have a rainsuit. And I can't fish tomorrow. So I went.

Launched at 0600 and picked up two on topwater before the rains came. It didn't rain real hard just steady until it stopped about 8:30.or so. A half hour later the lake calmed down and I found LM busting shad. Busting like I hadn't seen on Saguaro in a couple of years. Big boils. Long boils. Long enough to hook up, reel it in, take it off the hook, toss again into the same boil and hook up again. I had just broken off my biggest fish of the day (7 lbs?), rather he broke me off, and I sat down to retie. I'm tying the darn knot and my hands are still shaking from the previous fish when I hear the fish busting behind me. I set down the hook and grab a rod with a spook on it and flip the spook over my sholder, backwards. I stand up and turn around and see a LM smash it! A nice fat 3.5 LM in the boat. Got 'em long range with a spoon and short range with a bass assassin. Got 'em on Rico's and on Spooks. It was almost too easy. I had them pretty much to myself today too. Score? Hits: too many to count Hook-ups: ~30 Boated: 18 Just a couple 1.5s, mostly 2 to 2.5lbs, several 3.5s and a couple of 4s. All fish were like footballs and scrappy. And all are back swimming in Saguaro.

My thumbs torn up, my arm hurts, and the Cubs are leading 2-1 in the 6th. I'm a happy guy. Back to the game.............
