2 manning the weekend
« on: March 23, 2014, 05:27:43 PM »
Took the 2-man to Lock 7 on the Warrior Friday mid-morning bass fishing and fished most of the day. Not a single bite all day :shrug. I tried bottom to top, many differnt lures/plastics ... Even lost an Alabama rig. Once i got to the back of the creek and fished the flat, stump rows, etc. the t-motor quit on me. I had to paddle back ...and boy my arms were tired ! Shortly thereafter i went to Academy and bought a new T-motor ...That was Friday.

Saturday I went to Run Away Branch II on the Warrior. Saturday was a much better day after i finally figured them out a little. I caught all of the fish on either a Horny Toad and a buzzbait :banger. I could not get bit subsurface. I wound up catching 15-ish total and two of those were a 16incher and a 19 incher. However, Most were smaller than the 14inch legal length. I nevr saw another boat land a fish and there were several boats around me moving in and out all day. :scratch

Sunday .... it was raining, didn't get to go

Good job there Buzz. I had to spend some cake on my trolling motor the other day. I wasn't none too happy but ya gotta have the t-motor. We don't really have that topwater bite going here but it's very close. I may give it a try nect time out. We fished a small tourney last Saturday and on the prefishing day and on Saturday we could not get a topwater bite to save our soul. There just wasn't any topwater activity at all. glad you figured out those fish Buzz. That's always a good feeling
Bass don't eat what they don't see.

Glad you caught some. I went Saturday and only got two bites but no hookups. On one bite, my line broke. And it was brand new Seaguar Kanzen braid.
