Saturday Fishing Report - 3/18/17

Hello and welcome again to my Saturday Fishing Report. 

It was a slow week for fishing because the weather pretty much blew.  And blew.  And got cold.  It was gross.  Lucky for my sanity, that changed on Thursday.

Thursday - It was in the mid-60s, so I talked Hubs into going fishing with me in the afternoon.  We went out about 2:30pm.  The first place we tried - what we call 'the ledges' - no bites.  So, we moved to another place off a feeder creek - no bites.  So we went to our go-to spot.  Hubs caught two 6" bluegills and almost got a third.  I caught two 6" bluegills and a 13" spotted bass.  Got home about 5:30.

Friday - Another warm day and totally overcast, so I went out in the morning.  I got to the go-to spot about 8am.  Tried several areas, with the worm set about 6.5' deep.  Nada.  But I knew the fish were out there because I kept seeing them surface.  I set the hook shallower - about 3-4' deep - and started getting hammered.  A 14" spotted bass was the first to make it to shore.  (I lost what I could tell was a bigger fish before it got close enough for me to see.)  Then I caught about four 6" bluegills.  At that point, though, I ran out of worms.  It was about 11:30.  I took another 30-40 minutes picking up trash again.  I must've pulled several hundred feet of line out of the shore, along with numerous rusted hooks, sinkers, etc.  Plus, beer cans and assorted garbage.  It's a never ending battle. 

I thought about going out again in the afternoon, but my body needed a break.  Maybe I'll be back out by the time you read this.

Have an awesome week next week, and take a kid somewhere outside.  Fishing, hiking, birdwatching... anything.


  1. My kids took me out. LOL To a ball game. It was fun, but by the time Big Daddy and Jammie got home, it was 11:00 p.m. and we realized what old fogeys we are. LOLOL

    I hope you got out this after noon. If not, I hope you at least enjoyed the outdoors on the deck. It's lovely here.

    1. Yay for being outside! LOL, yeah, I can't make it to 11pm anymore. Hell, I'm lucky if I can make it to 9.

      I got out in the morning. It was gorgeous. No fish, but still worth the trip.
