Commercial Zone - Butterfield and Finley
The big lake in the buisness zone around butterfield and finley (And 355 & 88 as well) produced some great fishing yesturday. Myfriend was fly fishing for gill and he lost count around 50. The best ones he got were a 9oz. and a 10oz that i think was 8 or 9 inchs or something... I have a picture of it, but dont know if anyone is interested...
The water was warm, and I was throwing a popper for bass (plastic worm and rooster tails werent producing) Caught 4, all under 2 pounds. They were all healthy. The key was was going about 10 - 20 feet out (it runs pretty shallow around the shore) and giving it some good pops and splashes, and letting it sit for up to 10 seconds, wiggling the pop-r just enough to move the feather up and down, and then BAM, they were just inhaling them.
So they were moving slow, they would let it sit, make sure its 'alive' then finally hit it.
I wish I wouldnt have waited until the last minute to try the pop-r, I'm sure I could have reeled some more in.
