Caught 5, and missed 1, today, at Canonsburg Lake. Hadn't been there in quite a while, and I decided to do some exploring in the upper shallow section. Water was way muddier than I anticipated. Caught 3 on a black Whopper Plopper, and 2 on a Bagley squarebill. Managed to paddle all the way under Rt. 19 to the small spillway upstream. Got rained on several times, but I didn't care. Helped wash off some of the black muck.

      Yeah, I noticed that, too, Frank. I think with the dirtiness of the water, the sun just never seems to cut through the water too much, there. So they always look ...more pale. Silly me forgot how turbid the water there can be. I was gonna practice drop shotting! Not if ya wanna catch much, there! I felt the swim jig I was using at one point, was providing enough signal, and, as soon as I switched to an aggressive squarebill, I loaded up on my 4th fish. The 5th one came off it, too. The first three were off a black Whopper Plopper 75.

      I used to live out that way and fished the lake often. Those are great sized bass for Canonsburg. The bass are usually lighter, almost milky, once you get shallower ...more in the muck. Great day, Jim!

      Thank you, Rick! Brett, no I caught them all BELOW 19. Just traveled PAST the 19 overhead. Ted, I've heard stories, but that was in the past. personally, ...more I don't think I've caught anything past 3. Some kid claims he catches 5s all the time, but I remain skeptical.
