Thursday was my third trip to Lake Evans. I am trying to fish here every Thursday morning after I get off of work. This time I was going to try for catfish. I set up to the left of the big dock. I threw out one line with mackrel and my other pole I was messing around with different lures and soft plastics for bass (mainly just seeing how some of my new lures acted). I got a couple really nice hits on the cat pole but no hook ups. Casted back out to same spot and the surrounding area but never got hit again. As the sun came up and it got warmer I finished off the day with no more bites and one tree taking my rig. Will be exploring this lake a little more each time I go and trying to find some sweet spots.
Also look out for all the geese they are some mean birds :)
3 fish caught | Lunker: 3lb Largemouth Bass using a Roboworm Swim Bait
The lake is covered with beds. Most bass are sticking to their beds but will only hit once aggravated. (Not the best method!!) With the clarity of the water extremely low, I recommend fishing a slow to moderate retrieve. Use bright colors and fish receding shadows.
I rate my trip a 3* only because the lake has potential to hold huge Bass. I've seen multiple DD pulled out of there...
Remember to Catch Record & Release all LMB!
