Well, I have good news to report. The small males are FINALLY on their beds, waiting for the females to come up to spawn. I caught 1 bass on the upper lake, around the 4 rockpiles, and I caught 3 on the lower lake. I took pics of the first bass, but they only had his head in the pic. Taking pics while holding the camera and the bass is a trick! However, I did get pics of the lakes that I fish.
All the bass I caught were 11" long and 1 lb. in weight.
Can you spot the bed??
Summertime bass cove............tons of bass after the spawn:
I deleted the pic, while on the lake, which had the fish's head in the pic. LOL
Yup, those beds are within walking ability. They aren't far from the cove, which houses the bass during the summer. In fact, they are on the left side of the left side of the pics of the cove. LOL There is a bench on that point, which is access to a lot of deep water, and those beds are about 15 yds. from the bench, walking back toward the left.
I walked to those beds, and it took like 20 casts to each bass to get them to fully take the lure. None of the "snag'um" horse crap that them boys in Cali. employ.
