It was Aquilla again…   man it is hard to give up “catching” for “fishing”…

Stats for today at our 7:30 a.m.  launch:

  • Air Temperature:  62°
  • Wind:  2 to 5 mph from the South, Southeast

  • Water Temperature:  68°
  • Water Clarity:   Stained
  • Water Level:  537.67, up a little following the rain

With the wind being down and in between cold fronts, we thought this would be a great day to be back on Aquilla catching fish.

The Boss boated her first bass about 8:30… shortly after losing another fish about the same size.  This one was 3 pounds and 10 oz.

I thought it was going to  be a tough day.  I had fished a crank bait and a top water and had not had a bite.  I tried fishing a T-Rig like hers, but again no luck..  She was working that T-Rig

Everybody was relaxed this morning…  the birds were not working….  they were resting…

Finally, I boated a top water fish.

And then another.

We only fished until noon.  We had a number of bites and strikes, but only boated 4 fish, 3 keepers.  The wind came up and the fishing became more like work so we gave it up.  But, all in all, we had a great day on the lake.  It was comfortable, the fishing / catching was easy and relaxed.

The ramp at Dairy Hill remains in great shape.

There were quite a few folks combing the water for fish today….  My guess is that they were “catching” as well.
