Fish Catching Travel
Today was an interesting day on Coleto. The day started off with intermittent rain, and stayed that way all day. It was cool, and stayed that way too. The weatherman thought the wind would change out of the south at 25, and that did not happen. It was blowing about 15 out of the north.
I started on a main lake bank, and caught one right off the bat on spinnerbait, then hit a dry spell. Then to the back side of a small island that has a little drop on it and another one came on spinnerbait. I then headed to a cove, and caught a couple on spinnerbait, but as the wind was calm there, I switched to the Bagley Ban-O-Lure and caught a couple of more.
From then on it was just head up lake, stopping at calm places and twitching the topwater. They want it fairly fast right now. Often you need to let the topwater sit, then twitch it, letting it sit again. But now is not that time. They want it jerk short, sharp, and constant. Most of them take it right after the jerk, often when it is below the surface. You just have to watch closely. Sometimes you jerk and they are there, other times you miss them. If you do miss, always stop the bait just a second, then start fishing it like you were, and often they will grab it.
A good one….anything wrong with this picture?
I did have one small “event” this morning. This rod came from the Academy Black Friday sale. It was the first time I used it and broke when I set the hook. So later in the day I returned it to them, no questions asked. I love the return policy, it is fair. And I got the chance to talk to Frank Willis, the director of the Victoria store, while I was there. He is going on a great fishing adventure to Isla Mujeres in Mexico. Reports of 50 hook ups on sailfish set it up as a great trip, and I wish him and the folks going with him a Fish Catching Travel good time.
I am going to cut it short now. I will update soon. We are going fishing for a couple days and will get back to you as soon as I can. Also, will have embedded video this weekend, so stop in, and thanks for reading my stuff.
Good Luck and Tight Lines!
