View Full Version : Fri recon dipping baiting boiling trolling

06-27-2015, 08:35 AM
I put the boat in the water tied out at the end of the dock , I was first in line like I am most times times. as soon as I get to the boat I see crashing on the dam side of the dock and shad at waters edge, I hooked on my dip net head killed the main engine dropped the trolling motor and went after them ,after back and forth up the dam face assisted by a mob of hungry lmb's chasing them I got a couple skinny scoops . that was ok because the shad went under the dock I backed off and got 5 bass in a row I didn't get there pics it happened really fast.and I wanted to get up to the inlet to se what was up.i got up there dropped the troll gear before I got there and it wasn't long before a couple schoolies hit the deck.the water was barley squeeking in but a little bit of current ,It was flat calm so I pulled the trolls and did some slow drift with the shad ,the smallies liked it.i flylined a crawler then got stripey bit but the were superdinks so I threw them back , next thing I knew the shads were done . so it was back to the troll ,the bait fleet did good at the inlet for the first couple hours on sardine I didn't have any so I didn't get to fish them ,but I had some fnn fans who were more than happy to tell me what was up.the surface temp was just under 80 degrees all around the lake with clear water on top.the fish arm had scattered bait and schools that were slow to bite ,but I got four more for the box. I incountered several schoolie schools spawning .I killed the main engine and threw at them for nothing ,3 different times they swam right at and past the boat they were doing the porposeing thing blowing eggs and spooge, several other boats people were getting angry that they wouldn't take there lures........lol...........the lake is getting ready to explode better have youre gear ready.....................
