I’m back home, and ready to forget another Clarks Hill derby! I’m 0 for 5 in finishes on that lake, I really thought this was gonna be my redemption. The first day I pulled up on my starting shoal, and the whole thing was covered with fish boiling on herring! Problem was, they were all striped bass and whites. After catching over 20 of those , I finally caught a small keeper on a swimbait. I then went back towards the launch area, where I thought I could catch an easy limit on dropshot. Not so much, I worked hard in that area to catch 2 more keepers, and lost a nice 3lber. The last few hours, I ran some points that had bass swimming around them, but only caught one more keeper on a carolina rig. 4 bass for 5lbs, was not a good start, so the next day, I completely changed areas. In the first 10 casts on the second day, I caught a 2.5lber on a pencil popper, next stop a 2lber on a carolina rig, and next stop, broke off a 2.5lber trying to lift it in the boat on 6lb test! (DUMB)! Then the rain started, so I ran way up-lake to some bedding bluegills that had some big bass swimming around them. I caught two keepers there, but the big ones were gone. Then ran some good point with carolina rigs and dropshots, finished out my limit and culled some, but the big ones never showed. Even if I boated everything that bit, I don’t think I would have made the cut! Now it’s home with Amy and TJ, getting ready for Kentucky lake. My rig is at my friend Tom’s house in Nashville, so I’ll fly back in 10 days and try to get my revenge on that lake,( last two years missed 10 Grand on Kentucky by 1oz, both years!!!) Sorry for the lack of blogging last week, but you really didn’t miss much!!!
