COLD FRONT SNIPIN'!!!
Timing it right...
Dateline Wahk-Shin-Gah:
Monday Sept.26, 2016
7:00-11:30 a.m.
I arrived at the lake with a heavy downpour and 15 mph winds.
Weather report predicted a cold front pushing through by the afternoon. As I suspected, the topwater bite was on while the cloud cover was heavy...also, the slight chop on the water added to the attractiveness of the lure. However, this chop also increases the chance of misses when the bass strike.
I ended up landing 13 scoring bass and missed probably 20 more. As soon as front passed through and gave way to blue skies and 30 mph winds, the bite was done.
I had timed it just right!!!

By far, my favorite Snipin' conditions are...cloudy days.
It extends the low light feeding period for predatory fish...and I just seem to have more success!!!
Dinner tonight!!!

SNIPIN' IN THE WIND!!!
Pops goes fishing with a friend of his yesterday...I couldn't go because of work...
but I got the full report!
He Sniped this one about 8:50 a.m. in sunny conditions.
The wind was strong out of the southwest...possibly pushing baitfish to the area where dad caught this nice top water bass!!!

SNIPIN' IN THE DARK!!!
I had never night fished for bass before...very interesting!!!
I could not see my lure, but the bass could!
I just listened for that tell tale splash and...SET THE HOOK!!!
...after that, I decided to hang around for the sunrise.
That produced some great top water action as well...icing on the cake!!!

But then I decided to take off because a couple of duck hunters shot way too close in my direction...
I heard the shot ripping through the leaves right next to me!!!
