Fair Weather Fishing
July 26, 2004
I fished with Terry & Coeta again today on lake Champlain. The weather was quite a bit different than last Friday when we had winds from all directions and heavy rains at times. Today it was flat calm & the air temps got into the 80s by afternoon. Because of the lack of wind, there was an intense algae bloom on the lake that turned the water pea green. It even increased the surface temperature close to 80 degrees by the afternoon as well. This made for tough fishing as most of the bass were caught in very deep water. They caught about 20 or more bass up to 3.5 pounds and even a decent largemuth on a crankbait. Lots of boats on the lake today! I guess the fishermen prefer the nice weather. Give me the wind anytime!!!
