@Boxofrain65 It's interesting that you fish a river after dark. While I was living in New England, I spent literally thousands of hours over the years fishing at night, but only tried river fishing in low light conditions a couple of times and had ZERO success. Granted, I didn't put much time at all into it due to the dangers of navigating a small river after dark, and the incredible onslaught of mosquitoes while it was dark.

I did have one successful foray fishing from shore one night, though, tossing a jitterbug around in an area where there was only a little current.  :nod:

It may be the best example of how fish seem to add a ton of weight in the night hours, and shed it in the light ;D

Some of my biggest bass have been caught on spinnerbaits during times other than Spring!

It's amazing how a change in the weather can make such a difference in the bite!

This is more common than it should be. There are still plenty of wingnuts that hold tournaments with no permits and no livewells. They just plain don't care.

After looking at that fish more closely Curt  i think that's a spotted Bass

That might be possible, Joe. I noticed that it was pretty lean, and it put up a heck of a fight for a fish that size. I will have to check and see if Sutton Lake has spots in it  :hmm:

The Hawg Forum / 85 Degrees and Catching Bass!
« on: May 15, 2022, 05:51:13 PM »
I made my first trek to Sutton lake today, which is 30 minutes from my house. It's a 1000 acre power plant cooling lake.

I'd never been on it prior to today, so this trip was purely exploration and learning, trying to put some puzzle pieces together.

We didn't start fishing until shortly after 8 AM, so the sun was already high in the sky and it was heating up fast.

Over the course of 4 hours, I landed one bass and dropped another one that was bigger than this one. It looked like probably around 3 lbs. It came unbuttoned about 4 feet from the boat  :facepalm:

My wife also had a couple bites, but never got to see what they were.

By the time we left at 12:30 PM, it was 85 degrees  :o

All in all, not a bad start to my NC fishing adventures.

River fish are fatter and pull much harder than lake or pond fish. What's not to like about that?  (giggle)
