Got out to the lake early with my buddy on Sunday. Partly cloudy day, nice in calm in the morning. Wind picked up later in the day as usual. Water is still murky but slowly clearing. Weeds are still very thick. Started off using a Texas Rig green pumpkin brush hog while my buddy used a shad drop shot set up. Hooked up on my first cast. Landed a 2lber. Landed a couple more as the day went on. Switched to green pumking senko for a while. Didn't have any luck with that. Switched colors a few times with black and orange and baby bass. No luck. Switched to Purple worm drop shot. Landed 2 2blers and had a few bites here and there with no hook ups. Tried a couple of swim baits but all I caught were weeds. My buddy was not having any luck at all. 4 o'clock rolled around and I landed a total of 8 while he had none. Then he switched to green pumpkin IKA with black flakes. He was getting hits every 10 casts. I switched to IKA as well but was not getting a single bite. I guess all my luck transfered to him. He landed 4 all around 2-3bls. He must have missed 5 or so. IKA is definitely the hot bait right now.

Went shore fishing at DVL on Sunday with my GF. Nice sunny day. Water is still very murky and still a lot of weeds. Got out early and didn't see a single fish swimming around. No fry's swimming around, no bait fish, no blue gil, no bass, nothing. Usually I'd see something in the water. Thru my purple worm drop shot a couple times with no takers. Switched colors a couple times with green pumpkin, white, and pink. Still no takers. Switched to Senko black and orage wacky rig and got a few peaks but no hookups. Then as it started warming up and the wind picked up a little, I began to see some fry's swimming around. Sent my Senko out and let it sink to the bottom and twitched it a few times. Hooked up on something heavy. Fought it for a good 10min then finally layed eyes on it and saw that it was a flathead. It was a litte over 10lbs. My GF thru her green pumpkin senko out near the same place I caught the flathead and hooked up to something even heavier. She fought it for about 5 minutes and then I took over. Another flathead, this time it must have been 30+lbs. Since we didn't have heavy gear, only 10lb line, it took me about 30 minutes to get it near the shore. Then it took off again and snapped my line. A hell of a fight but too bad I couldn't land him. Was also a good thing that I lost it cause I didnt want to hike 2 miles back with 2 10+lb Cats in my bag. They are good eating though. After that, threw the senko out a couple more times with not much luck. Switched to green pumpkin IKA and that was when all the fun began. Found a spot with very little weeds and a lot of fry's swimming back and forth. Roughly every 5 cast either produced a fish or a bite. Landed 10 bass between us. Even got a smally. Talking to a few other people along the shore, green pumpkin IKA with black dots seems to be the money maker. Gonna have to try it again next time.
