    Default DVL Still Dishing Out 5/11/17

    Beautiful day at the jewel. The algae isn't as bad as it was a couple weeks ago, but is still pretty thick and has made its way to the west end. The cleanest water I found was on the western facing banks on the south side.

    Probably could've skipped coffee this morning as the first fish got the juices flowing. Not the biggest but by far the hardest fighting fish I've caught all season. Wrestled her out of a bush, received a nice aerial show, and proceeded to take me around the boat a couple times.

    Did a lot of running and gunning mid morning trying to piece the puzzle and find clean water. Private boaters were moving around a lot which usually isn't a good sign. Finally decided to just slow down and that turned out to be the right decision. The bass were really hunkered down in the submerged brush seemingly wanting something to fall in their lap.

    Ended up with 12 and should've had a handful more. Had many half hearted passive aggressive bites missed early in the day, but once the wind picked up Rawsons started to go off. Good senko bite early, great ika bite late. They were straight murdering the fat ika though.
