    Default First 100 plus fish day 2018!

    Today was my first 100 plus fish day for 2018! Woke this morning to 22 degree temperatures. I had to think a little about if I wanted to get out and fish today. My 4 weather apps all said the temp would reach high 50’s...and it did. The wind was 5-10 MPH today. I found plenty of white bass stacked seemly everywhere. They were still in the lite bite mode...just would feel a little tic...and if you did not set the hook they would blow the bait quick. Today I used my Major Craft Truzer Ajing 6’ 5” UL rod...”Hard” model. Reel was a Shimano TwinPower 2004HG spooled with 2# test SOS mono. The lure was a 1/4 ounce Fin Spin with a MidNight Blue Slab Curly. Fish were in 18-24 feet of water. Water temps were 52-53.5 range. All fish were between 12-14 inch. The females all seemed to be the 13 inch fish. Certainly not big white bass but on the UL rod with 2# test it was a great day. These fish were “Diggin”....I mean “Diggin”! I also caught and landed a drum that had to be close to the 10 pound mark maybe 15.....I just know he was big. Took me about 10 minutes to land that fish. The Truzer was bent into a U shape and the Shimano drag was screaming...but I got him to the net and yes I retied after landing him. I had some good info from fishing buddy Jaycee from the forum this morning.....this is one of the many benefits of this forum. He was in a creek which is where I was headed for but he called me and told me they had not had a good start so I decided to head for the dam. I’m not sure how John wound up for the day. The water was extremely high. Next week is supposed to be decent fishing weather so I will hit it pretty hard. When I decided to pull out today the fish counter read “125”......a great day indeed! Life is good!

    Great report and pictures. I like a screaming drag when you hook the unseen/unknown large fish. I love a good fight with a fish when the outcome is not a given and you can still win.

    Congrats on a great day.

    I've had days like that when the whites stack up, a ton of fun. It's been a while, the springs here have been terrible the last few years. Stay on them!

    Looks like a great day. Those are some great fish finder shots too. You should post the HB graph pics and species description on the side/down sub imaging forum in the Fishing electronics and photography forum...
