Super Shallow Night Fishing
« on: August 12, 2018, 10:58:34 AM »
I fished a club tourney Friday night, from 10 PM - 6 AM.

The water temp was mid to high 80s!!  :o

I found my bass in water less than 3 feet deep all night long. Most of them were in only a foot.

I caught them all pitching a beaver style bait to inside weed lines, behind thick, gnarly coontail weed. This made landing the fish very tough (I lost at least 4, including a giant that bent my wide gap worm hook  :crying: ), but all of the fish I caught were quality, including a 5.17 lb kicker.

I ended up with a 14.10 lb. bag for the win, with my kicker taking tourney lunker. Felt good to win one after bombing badly in my last two tourneys.

The only thing I didnt do that night! Fish shallow cover and flip creature baits. Sadly thats one of my favorite ways to catch fish!

Nice job Curt!
