missing bass in 24 hrs

3 posts in this topic

Was on Tonka two days in a row and the big fish disapeared. Here is the scenairo:

the first day(tuesday) and second day Wend(full moon).

both days were hitting docks

both days the wind speed and direction were the same

the first day sunny the second day cloudy

hit the same three locations both days

the first day encounterd nice bass 3-5 lb on the docks caught two fish in each spot and left. did not want to burn the spot. had 1-2 more bites but did not purposely hook fish.

Wend. was taking some kids out fishing. had high hopes being a full moon.

on wend all the big fish vanished nothing but dinks on the docks. So I/we fished the outside edge of the inside weedline, in the weeds(cabbage), outside edge of weedline.

the sunnies were on the docks both days etc.

all the quality fish went by by. I am not sure if the fish went by by or the kids could not just hook bigger fish. They did have trouble seeing the line move when the fish took the senko etc.

i felt so bad for the kids they did manage to hook 9 fish/1 kid and 6 fish/second kid but all fish were between 9-13 inches.

any help welcome

thanks the addict

one thought... Maybe the bass aren't hiding in the shade under the docks as much when it is cloudy? I have noticed that my best dock fishing is when it is sunny.

Excactly, high sun = fish under docks, cloudy = fish roaming shallow flats.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
