Small bass is better than no bass. With the weather consistent the last few days and with cool overcast conditions, I was pretty confident the fishing would be pretty good. In the three hours of fishing, we managed several a piece, I lost count but we had at least 6 or 7 trout-sized bass to the hand. We noticed at least 5 bass in the over 8 pound range. Two of which followed our boat for sometime though they refused to open their mouths. I had one of those chase my 11 inch bass but refused to attack it. It seems that there are two kinds of bass here- juvenile 10-11 inchers and monster bass. I've yet to catch an average bass here. Since this lake has a slot limit, I'm not sure if people are pulling all the 12 to 20 inch fish out of here and that is why we see the extremes in sizes.
