Funniest lookin' bass I've ever seen.
Today was the 2012 Bass Opener. As far as fishing goes, my favorite opener. I must say, it was a complete bust. One of the worst I can remember.
Storm after storm bring rain and high winds have keep me off the water more than I care for. I managed to sneak out for just a little bit before being stormed off the water again. I don't really care for all the lightening while waving my 7' flippin' rod around.
I've seen a ton of fish on beds and pre bed fish the last few weeks fishing gills. Funny the difference a few days can make. With all the rain causing a ton of run off, the lakes have already begun to green up. The weeds are high and a lot of beds are empty. If you can even see them.
It has been a strange year for spawning. Water temps go up then come back down and then go back up again. I'd be willing to be the fish are as confused as I am. Landing only a few small bass and a few pike. I wasn't on the water long and for that reason along, I am truly in need of a bucket mouth fix.
We are on track to have the wettest May on record. Please weather, CHILL OUT!
