Back to Back Burners
July 26, 2007
I had the pleasure of fishing with Scott & his son, Zane today on a lake for smallies. They were vacationing in the Thousand Islands area of New York and decided to take a trip to Canada to try their luck at some of our great bass fishing. The weather was a carbon copy of yesterday with maybe a little hotter temps making it almost unbearable once again. Water temps were above 75 degrees and the smallies were all over the place, just cruising the waters we fished. Senko’s were to be the ticket once more and we really needed only one rod apiece to entice them into biting. One of the first fish of the morning was a long, 20 inch 4-pounder that fell victim to a slowly moved bait. We had seen several fish even larger but were unable to get their attention and had to settle for just a few fish around here. Once we changed locations after catching only about 6 fish or so, we began to hit them pretty good. Both Scott & his son, Zane were fighting a bass almost every 5 minutes and it was great! The weather was hot and the action was even hotter as we boated probably close to 40 fish today by hitting all the high percentage areas in this region of the lake. Fish of nearly 5 pounds were caught along with many 3.5 to 4 pound average sized ones too! This was a great day that could have been exceptional had we monopolized on all the fish that actually hit our baits. There might have been as many lost as there were landed today!!
