Today was no different. I left the house at 8:15 and was at North Shore Camanche (I really like this spot) by 8:45. I had to stop for coffee Starbucks.
I wanted to get in a day of fishing before Winter sets in tomorrow and it gets cold. Ha, ha, ha, ha. I'm sorry, those of you in the center of the country probably don't think 28 degrees (when I left home) is cold, but when you're sitting next to a lake with the wind blowing it tends to makes us Geezers cold. Yeh, yeh I have the parka, gloves, hats, and hand warmers, but it's still cold.
When I got to North shore, there were people in the spot I usually fish so I set up on the cove side of the peninsula.

At 9:15 the Power Bait rod started bouncing. I set the hook and the fight was on. Took me a bit to bring it to hand and one of the young gentlemen next to me came over with their net which I have to say was bigger than mine and a good thing too because the fish would not have fit into mine. This has been an ongoing problem and Yuki reminds me I should get a bigger net every time I catch a fish that won't fit into my net.
I asked the young man how much he thought it weighted. He guessed 4 pounds.
I hung out at the point for another couple hours working the pink Kastmaster, Firetiger Kastmaster, and the green Magic Bullet all around the point, but there was nothing to be had.
About 12:30 I decided to drive out to the far point and work the Kastmasters in some deep water.

So that's it. The one fish a day rut continues, but hey..who's complaining about a 7'11" fish!
I think Yuki and I will be out on Thursday for another try. They are stocking the c..., s..., h..., out of the lake this week and next. Hopefully it will be a hot bite on Thursday.
One last thing before I go, if you've followed this blog for any length of time, you know I've found a lot of stuff as I've fished. Today was not different only today it was a blue glass marble. Who would have a blue glass marble out at the lake? Your guess is as good as mine.
