I hit the fog just outside Jackson and negotiated my way to New Melones a trip of about 40 miles.
On top of the fog, I left the house before zero dark 30. Man what a drive.
Once I got to New Melones, I did manage to get the spot at the end of the launch ramp (no other idiot was out there at that time of the morning) and set out two rods with rainbow Power Bait. Did I mention it was damp and cold? It was damp and cold.
|Anyone got a fog horn?|
Finally the sun came up and started burning off the fog.
|Still cold and damp.|
The between 8:00 and 9:00 I put three on the stringer, but small ones. Two at a stretched 11 inches and one at, maybe 12". Then nothing more so I packed up at 11:30 (Five hours of barely catching was enough) and headed over to Tuttletown where we fished last year.
I wanted to see what the lake looked like and was I disappointed.
|The bottom launch ramp - Closed.|
|High and Dry|
