Today I had the great pleasure of having Bill, Dave and Mike out on Johns Lake for a 4 hour shiner trip. Water temperatures started out at 61 degrees and ended the day at 63.2 degrees. With a perfect overcast sky and a slight breeze on the water, this should have the bass feeding, and the bass did not let us down. First bass was over the side of the boat within 20 minutes, and the action stayed pretty steady the whole 4 hours. Several bass in the 1 ½ to 2 pound class along with a couple 3 pounders and a nice solid 5 pounder, that Bill caught early on in the day. Schooling action was pretty steady until the last 30 minutes. With Bill really doing some serious catching, he decided to sit and watch Dave and Mike finish off the last hour, with the guys bringing 25 bass over the side of the boat for the day. Most of the bass were caught out in open waters that held some type of structure, submerged grass, or around humps, slow trolling the shiners.
Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing!
