Figures that after days of hot, consistent weather, I pick a day off to fish right after the front moves through.
Went to a close by lake that gets a fair bit of fishing pressure, tried for some fish on frogs, crankbaits and faster stuff for an hour or so in the morning but as I figured, they weren’t having any part of it.
So I pulled out two pitching rods and went to work. I was throwing a new Berkley Max Scent creature hawg and a max scent general ( stickbait), Texas rigged with a 3/8 and 1/2 oz tungsten sinker. Turned out to be a pretty decent day after all, managed to get about a dozen bass and a couple small pike. Found them still shallow but back in the pads away from the edge, and they seemed to be suspended right under the pads too.
Today was a real lesson in boat control, trying to work along the pad line while not being blown too fast with the wind. There were lots of times were I just talloned down and pitched to as many holes, points and irregularities I could find, picking apart the entire area. It was defenitely more of a reaction bite as apposed to a feeding bite, as almost every fish hit as soon as the bait touched down, you pretty much had to knock em on the head to get bit.

This lake isn’t known for great largemouth fishing, but they’re in there if you want to work for em. Of course the best two fish came off right at the boat, both of them were over four lbs, but I still got some fat ones in for a quick pic.
