Big Lure = Big Bass
This week turned out to be a business wipeout as most of our booked trips were cancelled due to an assortment of maladies. Fortunately I was joined by my life-long fishing partner, Kevin Morris, and his son Brian for a couple of days of fishing. We got on the water Friday evening for 2.5 hrs of fishing and landed 12 bass before dark. Brian caught one that was 4 lbs and lost one that was even bigger. My 13 year old son caught 4 bass. All of our fish were caught on soft plastics and junebug was the best color. Saturday we fished most of the day and landed 27 bass. I had honors for the day with a 9.25 lb beauty. I had boated 14 bass up to 3 lbs on a 7� junebug worm when I decided to use a 10.5� worm. I often tell people that my observation is that 1 out of every 15 fish on Three Mile Lake will exceed 4 lbs when I fish normal to large bass lures. We had several 3 lb fish to go along with my big bass, which is the fifth fish over 8 lbs this year at AP.
This morning we landed 21 bass and again had several in the 3 lb range. The big fish eluded us today and broke off before we got a look at her.
The lake is still full and circulating water. Clarity is good and approaching more normal levels for June. Sporadic topwater action may be indicating that we will have solid topwater action when summer arrives in full force.
Many open dates remain in July so give us a call if some great worm or topwater bass fishing gets you excited! Don Kentner 417-639-4111
