Caught another 3 1/2 lb bass. This one hit next to an embankment. I didn’t get a good hook set, and he spit it. 20 mins later, I casted to the same spot, and he ...more hit again. I didn’t miss the second time. He was blind in one eye.
Slow, clear day, almost no wind. Bite was slow and sporadic, but I did catch 13 fish this morning, only two smallies (mostly largemouths). This was the biggest of ...more the smallmouth, so nothing huge. I also caught a good-sized channel cat (at least 8 lbs). Poor thing had a big hook and about a foot of braid in its mouth from a previous fisherman. I removed the hooks and line, then released it.
