100 Bass Day
May 12, 2007
Darrin & Joe decided that they would like a shot at some action today so we went to Memphremagog for the numbers. Darrin hooked up with a decent bass of almost 3.5 pounds on his first cast with a jerk-bait and the games began. From that point on, we were tight to fish almost all day long! The jerk-bait bite was happening and we didn’t have to use anything else in order to hit that 100 fish day that everyone always hears about. There was even one location after lunch that produced fish on just about every cast and it lasted well over an hour before we just got tired of catching bass ad relocated. The winds were a chilly N/NW of 5 to 10 knots causing the air temps to not reach 60 degrees. The best water temps were found to be in the high 50’s with plenty of sunshine for the better part of the day. Due to the numbers on Memphremagog, we decided to give the trophy lake another try late in the afternoon and relocated there. The water temps had dropped slightly due to the wind direction and this made the fishing a little tougher Only a couple of the larger bass were caught but there were a few other smaller bass in the 2 to 3 pound range taken as well. We gave it a shot and came up short today but not for lack of trying. They still have a couple of days left to get into that elusive 6 pounder and we will due everything in our power to try and succeed.
