I hit the Lagoon yesterday with Robo Bass for some spring break bassin and ended up doing pretty well. I immediately noticed that the water clarity was a lot worse than it usual was and wondered how the sight fishing was going to be. I moved to a spot and started to work it slowly and nailed a 2 lb 0 oz bass within a few minutes. I went over the same general area on a second pass and got another fish, but this one was only 1 lb 5 oz. Then a few passes later *TAP TAP TAP* and I set the hook. This guy was pulling off lots of line and going down deep. I got her to the surface and she made a nice jump and I instantly knew she was easily 5+ lbs! She went back down deep and peeled off some more line and I finally landed her after a couple minutes on 6 lb test! It was an awesome bass weighting 6 lb 2 oz! This bass was my best one so far in 2010! I was pretty excited after that and made a couple more passes around my spot, but didn't get anything else. Robo Bass still hadn't caught any fish at this point and couldn't get anything at my spot, so we moved and he caught a little dink sight fishing. A little bit later, he got another bass, but this was one was better, weighting 2 lb 5 oz. We didn't get any more action there, so we moved once again and Robo Bass hooked 2 bass, but lost them both! He was very disappointed after that!

Today we hit the Lagoon a lot earlier than the day before and we moved across a spot to look for fish on the beds, but it was just too murky to see them. I worked the same spot where I got the 6 lber the day before, but didn't get anything there today. I saw a bass in the shallows and dropped my bait down and backed off. I saw my line moving sideways and I set the hook. He weighted 1 lb 12 oz. I saw a few crappie so I decided to catch one of them, but it weighted 1 lb 2 oz only. I didn't want to waste time on them, so I didn't really fish for them. I moved to a new spot and hooked up within 20 seconds of switching my setup. It was a 1.5 to 2 lb bass and I ended up farming it! It jumped right when I got him to my tube and came off. A little bit later I hooked up again, but this one wasn't as big and was only 1 lb 2 oz. A little bit after that I caught another little bass weighting around 1 lb probably. Robo Bass still hadn't caught any bass, but then he hooked up and got it to the surface, but it jumped and he lost it! It was probably around 2 lbs. After farming that one, he hooked up again and reeled in a dink, but it was a fat dink! This one had a belly on him, for a dink, lol. Later, I felt a tap and set the hook, my rod started to bend, but then it came off after having it on there for a second. Robo did the same thing a little while after that. The wind started getting pretty bad, so we got off the water and went home. I didn't do a lot of fishing today because I was scout out some spots for the tourney tomorrow! Hopefully I do well!

No, I usually just go one or two times a week, sometimes more. Usually on the weekends. We went the last two days because we are on spring break. Say hi next time.

a flat lost tube doesn't take up anymore space than your tackle box. you should be able to squeeze it in some where because it will definitely pay off.

Congrats on the nice fish, you seem to know that lake well. I'll be out there with my brother Wednesday and Thursday hoping to put a hurting on some crappie and maybe a catfish or two. Any advise on what area of the lagoon and what depth to be targeting and what color jigs to be using for the crappie would be much appreciated.

PS. What's with your friend RoboBass and the Marine hat? Being a prior Marine I'm just curious why he's wearing it. Is it to show support, does he have faimily in the Marines or is he planning on joining after he graduates?

Thanks guys. I will try and help some of you, but I am so tired right now that I don't think I will be able to help anyone until I get some sleep. 3 days straight float tubing and then 2 days hardly any sleep. I did alright in the tournament today and caught 7 lb 3 oz of fish. My biggest today was 4 lb 8 oz. It was a tough day with the wind and major weather change. Too bad the weather got better after the tournament was over, lol. Lots of guys got skunked.

Pier hasn't been working for me in forever. Only thing I've caught there this year were blues.

I have family that were in the Marines. I probably won't join the Marines but I am planning on joining some branch of the military. It's just my way of supporting them because I look up to the Marines and all of our nations armed forces.

Yeah, I do.

Lmao! My arm was tired after just fighting it on my medium-light rod and 6 lb test! Then I had to hold it up to get the hook out, weight it, and get a picture.

i saw a few kids with their papas & mamas were fishing for blue gill. it reminds me to the time when i was just a little toddler and my dad took me to a pay lake in the country where i were born to introduce me to fishing...
anyway, back to the fishing topic, i fished near the pier and along the shore line in that side of the lake and i did not get any bite, not at all. it was my second attempt for bass fishing..
