Quick catch report
Had a short 1 hour session on a local mark. By looking at last years catch reports I’ve started to find a correlation for when smaller and bigger bass will turn active. In this case, on this local mark, I made a prediction that the bass will turn on and then turn off within a one hour window, and that all the bass caught will be small (1-2LB). The only element that was not in play was the wind. Normally this mark fishes well with a SE wind and all we have had this summer is bloody SW. So on with a Duo Minnow SLD F in sand ell green. First cast and I felt a knock, second cast saw a positive bite, working the lure at a medium pace with a short pause every 5 seconds. In total 5 fish in 1 hour to about 2LB. Like clockwork the fish turned off as the 1 hour window came to a close... Just goes to show that keeping a record of catches and blanks will pay off big time and saves on parking fees.
