South Center 07.09.07

2 posts in this topic

So I went out with my buddy and his dad on South Center yesterday evening. The night started out pretty slow, the idea was to go out and fish pannies to get a few for the table and have a nice night on the water. We started off that way and pretty quickly changed tactics. We were fishing just north of the long point sticking out of the west side of the lake. The water was about 6" deep between the point and the bouy and there were a ton of bass schooled up on top there. They were all about 8 to 10 inches long and jumping out of the water 20 at a time. There must have been a good 200 out there. Casting senkos we caught a few. We started moving around and in 2 hours the three of us boated about 40 bass, most around 1.5 pounds. My buddy's dad caught his first bass, and then on consecutive casts caught his second and third. It was a lot of fun out there. First time I have ever seen the bass jumping out of the water in schools like this though. We went in pretty close and couldn't see any fry or anything, but I would assume thats what they were chasing. All in all, it great night on the lake.

Nice report, sounds like a good time. Yeah, can't say I've ever seen largemouths doing that before (well, at least not more than 2 or 3). It's pretty common with smallies though. But yeah, would be a nice change of pace with it being largemouths.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
