Decided to go out Saturday on the bay and see if we could get into any fish, the sun was shining and the waves were not bad. The wind has been all over the last few weeks so after looking over the previous days reports we picked a spot we thought should be loaded due to the weather conditions. We went out around lunch time to give it a go and see what we could find.

We got to our spot and my son got his line out first declaring first in gets the first fish to me. I was half way out when I put my thumb on my spool for a second to check if my lure was digging right and BAM fish nailed me, so much for him getting the first fish Was a nice little bow about 3 pounds maybe perfect eater. Soon as I get my line back in the water BAM another fish, handed my son my rod as I like to go make sure we all get to catch at least one its no fun when someone is reeling them in one after another and the other person is getting nothing. Let my line out again and BAM another fish! We had been out fishing for about 15 minutes at this point and got three on the boat already what an amazing day! My son decides he needs to change his lure as mine seems to have all the magic today and then before he can pick up his rod BAM he has a fish on. We let that one go, our limit is 4, we do not like to fish after we catch our limit incase we land one and they are in bad shape and this one looked like she was great to release no signs of fatigue or bleeding.

The sun dipped behind the clouds and the bite turns off for about 30 minutes, normally we are lucky to even have a fish in the boat the first hour and can't really complain but we start talking about what could of affected the bite, both our lures were silent baits and the water looks kind of stained from the vegetation die off. So we put a big noisy rattle stick bait on my sons rod thinking without the sun shining down super bright the fish might need some noise to help them see our baits. About 5 minutes later he got into another fish, this time a really big one about 30 inches who put up a heck of a fight. We let her go as once they get over 5 pounds or so I like to release them instead of keeping them so they can go on making more fish for us to catch later. Over the next 45 minutes or so we landed two more fish, the sun peaked for abit again and I got one more on my bait and my son got another larger one about 26 inches on his stick bait.

All in all we went 7 for 11 in under 3 hours, the sun felt amazing while it was shining, we have 4 bows in the freezer so we can have a nice fish dinner every couple of weeks until spring time and I don't think I could hope for a better day of fishing out on a boat in November.

Thanks for all the kind replies. I definitely don't regret leaving the boat out late this year, going to wait a bit longer and hope for a couple more warm days but I won't be to upset if we don't get them.

Hopefully we get a better spring start next year Ralph, one where the ramps are open at least!

Yes krawler, one is a J7 and one is a j9. Also a 3 3/4 jerk bait with rattles in a smelt colour was working good too. About 1.8 mph.
