10/01/06--DT 10 and Swimming Senko Bass

Post by Lightninrod » Sun Oct 01, 2006 11:38 am

Went back to the swamp pond today; sunny, partly cloudy, wind-off and on, muddy water, and air temps in the mid-80s. Fished from 10 AM to 1 PM. Saw a 7' gator as I disturbed it from its sun-nap on a log.

Caught two from the bank with the SS. Caught 4 or 5 more small ones on the SS.

Was in about 9-10' of water at mid-day when I started throwing a Rapala DT 10. First cast brought a 4lber in. Missed two hits and then landed a 6 lber and a 2lber, all in the same area. They must have been stacked up or schooling thru this area as I've never had so many hits on a bait even taking time to take two pics and banging the boat. They just kept on hitting that cr/bait.

Back near where I get out, I threw the SS in about 3' of water and picked up the last Bass, a 3lber. Best Bassin' there(or anywhere) in a while.


2lber from the bank

4/15--DT 10

Thanks y'all. It was an outstanding few hours.

Cal: Believe me I thought about changing baits/rods but the action was too fast for that and keeping the boat away from the stump-bushes. I have a Japan pro shallow running cr/bait on my Shiryu 8-) .

Great fish dan. what color is that SS? Also in one of those pictures you arent looking at the camera and there seems to be something in the water behind you...is that the gator you disturbed? Thats crazy if it is!!!

Thanks guys for the looks 8-) .

arbogastjunkie: No, that is just a piece of wood. I turned around because the boat shifted ;) . I saw the gator earlier and about 100 yards back up the pond to the right of that pic.

lightnin big bro,
nice weather, nice bass and nice swamp. How i miss that blue skies weather back home. Always admire how you lip the bass and hold your rod with the same hand ;)
