eat anything, because they are too busy guarding the bed. The ferrous fight the
fish puts up in the spring on the fly rod is not present now because of weight and
strength loss during the spawn.
If one fishes cover during
the drawdown, it is usually good for a bluegill or two. This old submerged tree
The end results of short
morning trip and a good meal for later on in the week. I never stay on the lake
after during this time of
year because of the heat and horrible humidity. It gets worse as the day
progresses causing one to have trouble breathing at times. Funny, during those three
hours the tendon pull never enter my mine.--------Almost forgot I counted two
in the cooler for the quest, I am now a long shot 27 away.
