Fishing Notes

After being off the water for a couple of days due to a serious cut w stiches to the back of my hand (clumsy accident, I ran into my slider door as I thought it was open). I really wanted to get on the water as the day looked gloomy like, dark, misty, light to moderate east wind, etc. I really thought that I could get em good today. I also wanted to test out my hand to see how much pain or trouble I would have fishing. So against Dr. orders, I got out there about 8:30 and fished a couple of hours. I had no bites from brush piles in the first hour, I am guessing the overcast, etc. moves them away from the piles and they just start wandering. So, I remembered a tip James Dill gave me last year sometime, he told me that when there are changes in the weather (cold front, etc.) that fish will often get on big rocks, bluffy stuff, etc.. While I know that all the fish do not do this, I thought well, at least I can see a bluff and big rocks versus just randomly casting around brush and docks. After about 10 minutes on a bluff ledge, I caught a 4 pounder on the Davenport Jig. My scale registered it over 5, but my scale must be wacked out, there is no way it was over 5, so I am guessing 4. I proceeded to catch two more small keepers on the jig and a short, all on these big rocks and bluffy areas, out of the wind. This afternoon my good friend and LOZ #1 Fishing Guide, Jack Uxa and I got on the water about 4:00 and fished til 7:30. While we always want to catch big fish, we were mainly checking out the backs of big coves from Linn Creek to the Hurricane deck bridge, looking for bait fish and/or life in the backs of the coves. We fished about 5 big coves without any sign of big shad all the way back in these coves. We did catch 2 keepers and about 10 short fish off these docks and also one stretch of bluffs.
