Bullards Bar 7/5/10
Well we launched at Dark Day at about 5:45 or so, fished the cove around DD with no luck, but we never fished it before so thought what the hay. Went to our first normal spot and caught one on a Green Pumpkin Tube with a D&M Shakey Head 1/4 oz. The fish hit it on the reel back so I started throwing reaction. The water had a little color to it so I went with a Citrus FF Shad Deep Diver, and it was on. Caught two over 4 and a couple in the 3 1/2 range. My partner caught some nice ones on Jigs with Maddog Trailers and on DS. The fish were super aggressive once we found them. I had one fish hit a small swimbait so I set the hook, but missed, as I reeled it up the fish followed it and jumped 2 1/2 feet out of the water knocking the SB out of the water as well. A foot closer and it would have landed in the boat. We were off the water at 1 pm. Best 5 went about 18.
Start Deep Stay Deep. All of our fish came in deeper water and off main points.
Water temp was 76 in the morning and almost 80 in the afternoon. Bite died off about 12 pm or so.
To all the doubters out there, keep working on it, those fish are there and it is worth it when you find em!!!
