Kerr Lake, 9/27/20

Debbie and I took the pontoon boat out on the lake, just up to the mouth of the cove, for a picnic dinner. A couple of good friends were on their boat about 8 miles up the lake, and texted a bunch of pics of what they were catching.  

About an hour before sunset, we realized the whole area had become loaded with bait fish balls that were literally "boiling" the lake all around us. We went back to the dock, grabbed a couple of rods and some tackle, and returned to the mouth of the cove. After a few minutes, we saw one area where fish were literally leaping out of the water while feeding. I fired up the pontoon and ran to it, and Debbie was throwing top water baits into it. When we switched to a WhopperPlopper, it was "ON". Here's a couple of pics...

The Airfield, 9/24/20

Debbie and I ran out to the private spot we call "the Airfield" just before dark, and fished a bit in the drizzle as it moved in. I was playing with a bunch of top water stuff and a crayfish, but they weren't having it. Debbie was fishing with 5" yum dingers (watermelon & pearl), rigged weightless & weedless. She was getting on it!

Kerr Lake, 9/16/20

We had a little time to go fishing a few minutes while at the lake house for some maintenance, so we hopped on the water a bit. I got skunked :-)  Debbie used her 10' B&M composite crappie rod and caught a pile of bluegill and racoon perch, a small large mouth bass,  and this channel cat...

Cow Pasture, 9/14/20

Debbie and I ran out to the private spot we call the "Cow Pasture" just before dark (and prior to some incoming rain). Debbie was fishing with a micro setup w/beetle spin and smokey shad grub, I was throwing a topwater frog. Here's a couple of pics from this little trip...
