Happy New Year! Dec. 22 trip was first time to fish Boswell and PWF trip #27 since I joined the club. Per Bassmaster Fishing Times, it was third best day of Dec. My son Andrew & I fished hard from 10:00 - 5:30 under sunny skies. Fun day on the water.
Caught 5, with 1 harvested. Andrew caught the Big bass of the day at 6lbs, 2 oz. Most action in a 1 hr. window, just before noon. I seem to bring the average catch rates down at these fine PWF fisheries .
Wind: 6 -10 mph
Water clarity: 3-4 ft.
Water temp: 48 - 51
Air temp: 43 - 55
Due to conflicting work schedules, this was only Andrew’s second trip of year. His other trip was to Dogwood for the fish fry. He caught a 6.5 lb. big bass for that day as well. So in only two PWF trips, he had 2 bass over 6 pounds. He is setting the bar pretty high for 2019 to continue his run!
What worked: Tx Rig, Hags Tornado green pumpkin red worm (6.5 in.) & White spinner bait. What didn’t work: Everything else in the box!
I caught 2 in 4 casts with Hags garlic injected worm. Andrew ties one on & catches the 6-2 on first cast! All in about 15 minutes. It was a gift & one of those baits that sat in the box for 3 years. First time I ever used it. All caught in SE end near dam.
Andrew’s PB was caught on Easter Sunday 2017 (7 lbs. 9 oz.). Now he has this “Christmas” bass to go along with it:
