Fishing Report - May 5. 2012
Made it out with Dogfish Dave today from 9:30 A.M. to about 4:00 P.M. Started out in fog and ended up in sun. There seemed to a period of time around noon where the fishing was quite good. Once the sun came out at 2:00 P.M. fishing really slowed. We had north/northeast winds from 5 to 15 just about most of the day. Water temps were variable and the rattle trap bite seemed to be non existent however the buzz bait bite seemed to be working for the first time this year. We caught fish on weighted texas rigged plastics and unweighted minnow imitators, spinnerbaits, and buzzbaits. We caught about 35 fish between the two of us with the biggest about 17" and a good number around 15". During the time around noon there seemed to be a bass on windblown points you could catch on a buzzbaits, 50' farther down in a gap in the bulrushes you could get one on texas rig, and 50' after that the unweighted minnow would work. The wind was blowing into this area.
There are always fish in the water; we just have to find them.
