hit the lake today with a buddy. decided to go big the whole day. knowing skinner, it could be epic or it could blow.

fishing today was an absolute grind. LOTS of hard work chucking the big stuff. bites pretty much cut and dry with this stuff right now. shallow main lake tule points with the correct angle of retrieve. if you miss the angle you wont get bit. if you try and double back on a spot; you wont get bit. one shot is all you got and you have to make it count. you could be a foot off the right line and the fish wont chew. if you just barely tick the tule lines ; bingo. it aint easy, but the fish are playing nice. and there are some good ones.

with the water at the level it is right now a lot of my favorite edge spots are in 20' of water. any other bite and i would be completely stoked but yeah. it was actually a chore finding usable water that played into my bite both yesterday and today. shallow banks with tules in less than 10' of water. most of the tule banks have edges in 20' or deeper and the fish dont seem to be responding on the deeper stuff.

here's a little guy from today. just got done explaining angles to anthony and how they made all the difference in the world. i told him i was gonna catch a fish on this next cast as all the 'signs' lined up. notice the wind direction, shade line, main lake tule point and bait. bingo. fish. fish was around 3 i wouldnt give it any more than that. didnt feel like editing so i just slapped it together for a quick FNN report. no big ones today but had a lot of fun screwing around.

Matt this is an outstanding report and it's nice to see what these baits look like, how you fish them, and then actually catching a quality fish on one. Quick question though what size are those three swimbaits you have in the picture?

thats what its all about. too many people get tight lipped about everything. no matter what, everybody knows everybody's spots and realistically, its not too hard to see what the other guy is using as are lakes just aren't that big enough to hide.

all 3 baits got the attention. the bait thats been doing most of the work has been the CL8 CB-7". very good bait on the slow wind.
