Plan B

On this particular day, I decided to switch things up a bit. The forecast was calling for heavy winds,and rough seas, so I moved inland to the sweet water. The body of water I fished today is in Suffolk, off of pitch kettle road, and goes by the name  Lake cahoon. The area offers two fisheries, that are split by a dam one side cahoon  lake, and the other lake meade. I have fished them both with similar success, but others will beg to differ on which is the better hole to fish.

 I started the day off early throwing top water,with little to no success. As the day progressed I started to throw soft plastics in and around lay downs, and that seemed to be the ticket. I managed several bass, a few bream, and a BASTARD of a Bowfin that gave me pure hell. I hooked this guy earlier in the day, and he spit the hook,so as I made my way back to this stump on my way in, he nailed my bait for the second time ,and it was on. This guy ripped drag on many runs,before submitting to my Boga grip.I got him up long enough to weigh him,(5#) and then he went "Ape Shit"he turned so violently he tore his bottom lip off ,before hitting the deck of the yak, and then in the drink he went. I soon after ended my day on the sweet  water,not a bad day for a last second plan B trip.
