After last weekendâ€™s incredible fishing I invited my friend Erica out for the weekend. With her busy schedule lately I was pleasantly surprised when she accepted. Weâ€™d tentatively planned to fish both days but the place I typically stay was booked and unlike last weekend, there was wind forecast, so a day trip it was.
We got an early morning start and spent the dawn throwing top water, me Leeâ€™s Sub Zero and Erica a spinning rod. We hit some pretty sweet, â€œbig-fishâ€ water where I was really looking forward to Erica getting the shock of her life when a double digit Moe exploded on her Zara Spook. But it never happened. I had 2 medium blowups on the SZ, one of which was a definite blackie, neither of which were hooked.
The wind howled and the bass boats were everywhere but we still managed to find a few cooperative fish.
Erica got a couple fishing sub surface, and I got a few in the 2 â€“ 3 pound range but other than that it was a pretty slow day from a fish catching perspective but a day well spent with good company.
And best of all, on the drive home she said, â€œLetâ€™s do 2 days next timeâ€!
