Double Treble or It Takes 2 To Tango

With Hermine a distant memory that left flooding, destruction, & loss of life, I pray by the time you read this you & yours are safe & Hurricane Mathew is history.

And yes there’s still people fishing….while on the run to gas up my wife’s car this morning, I saw a bassboat heading the opposite direction thinking hmmm, I’ll bet they bite today prior to this monster storm approaching….with that I was on Griffin by 0950 with 2 rods rigged with lipless crankbaits….keep in mind that the wind is your friend….to a certain extent.

The 1st fish came off a point that must have followed the bait to the boat because when it hit I had a rod length of line out….and to add interest to it, I saw that I snagged it just under the dorsal fin. Initially I thought this was a Trophy Catch – 8 lb plus. Wrong….it only weighed 2.13. The continuous casting of lipless paid off only 3 more times & the others were all smaller.

2 days ago Jerry Lester & I went to Okahumpka and immediately changed our mind & went across the street to Deaton. Okahumpka was way to shallow. Forecast for 10/7/16 is as much as 7.5″ of rain  in The Villages. Once at Deaton we shot to the north shore….stuck nothing there….then fished all the way around to the south shore when Jerry lands a 2.1 lbr on a hollowbody toad. It seemed to have taken forever to get that 1st fish. 5 more were caught but none even as large as Jerrys original. I think we caught 3 on top & 3 with lipless.

When you see a pond that is all dried up you think “Man, what happened to all the fish?” There’s nothing but a puddle remaining. The gulls are having a feast….The old saying that the strong will survive fits this sequence. Check this bass that FFC member Frank Martines caught here in The Villages. Remember a few years back when there was a drive to have this lake lined to eliminate water loss.

Below FFC member Gary Towers, not to be outdone by anyone, holds his Trophy Catch that he’d caught at Griffin on Sep 26. Gary said he was 1 for 4 that day but the 1 one, WON him a fish of a lifetime. Gary also said he caught it on a Blue & Chrome Aruka Shad. Gary’s fish weighed 8 lb 10 oz.

  Saving the dumbest thing until last….here’s what can happen while you’re fishing. This can turn a perfect day of fishing to a perfect pile of _____. Yeah it’ll never happen to me, you think. Be careful because no matter how safety conscious one is, it does happen. The impaled wish to remain anonymous….unless you saw me at the doctor.
