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'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
