A Breezy Day
August 26, 2004
I fished with Nathan & his two sons, Devon & Shane today on Lake Champlain. We had winds of 20 to 30 knots from the S/W with gusts up to 40. Finding a sheltered area to fish was a must in these conditions! Air temps were in the 80s and the water temps were in the upper 60s and in some places the lower 70s. Yesterdays N/E winds really cooled the shallower water! It wasnt long before we found some warmer water & some largemouth willing to bite. Soft plastic lures & Scum Frogs thrown over vegetation managed to persuade some of the fish to actually feed. By the end of the day we had really gotten into an area that seemed to be holding quite a few quality sized largemouth up to & over 4 pounds. Too bad we had to leave! Probably close to 15 or so fish fell victim to the offerings on this BREEZY day!!!
