Lake Fayette – 6/9/12

Had a great full day trip on Fayette after showing up at Bastrop for our originally planned trip and finding a ton of boats on the water for the Kelly Moore fishing tournament, I convinced my clients to drive 45 minutes further to give Fayette a shot.

After one of my customers kindly pulled someone off the ramp who was stuck, I netted up some perch and configured drop shots and we gave it a run.

On the first cast of instruction, one client boated one in the 5 to 5.5lb class range. Normally it is bad luck to catch a fish on the first cast – but not on Fayette lake my friends.

We managed to catch about 30 largemouth this day in the 2 to 5lb class drop shotting live perch and carolina
rigging Nichols Lures creature baits. I love this lake,  it is
worth the extra driving time.

I know football season hasn’t started yet, but we had a great day catching footballs all day long.
