Last Summer’09 Update?
Two out of state anglers arrived at AP this Thursday and were met by cool weather and some good bass fishing. Cool, dry air finally pushed the rain out of our area Thursday morning and overnight lows dipped into the 50’s. Dry north wind signaled the arrival of Canadian air, which always makes my stomach ache when the fish have been biting as changing weather patterns can knock a hole in even the best of summer bites. The bass were indeed affected, but the bite was not destroyed and the second morning of a two day trip actually brought a nice topwater bite. Our two guests fished hard and reported catching fish on crankbaits, soft plastics, buzz baits, and Zara Spooks. The lunker of the trip was a 7 pounder, closely followed by a 5 and 5 +.
This morning I got on the water at 8:00 and fished for 2.5 hours. I caught 6 bass, my biggest was 4.25 lbs. I did break off a fish on my jig at one of my big fish spots. I never got a look at the fish as I broke her off on the hookset. I also caught 3 nice crappie that have accepted an invitation to dinner.
