I managed to get outside this weekend at a lake near the cabin, to do some jig fishing. The water temp. was just below 50 degrees on this lake, so I decided to stick with the jig for the entire afternoon. I think it may have warmed to 52. If I could do it over, I would have gone to a deeper local lake, that would have had warmer water. I wouldn't consider this to be my favorite type of bass fishing, but it may have been the only option to put fish in the boat today. The two fish I posted pictures of were the best ones of the afternoon. I didn't bother to measure them, because I knew they were under 20". This lake has boasted some piggies, and I really thought I was going to put a bigger one in the boat. I am starting to realize that I am a total optimist, when it comes to fishing. I always seem to see the possibility in a lake. I haven't caught one in this lake more than 5 lbs, but I talked to a guy that caught two approaching 7! So, I figure eventually, I will get into one of those beasts if I put in my time. Lots of healthy fish in this lake, but it is proving to be a spring, and fall lake for me.
