I received a rather late text on Saturday from my buddy Luc asking me if I wanted to fish Sunday. Popper fishing is over and the morning would be fishing full sinking lines deep in up to 35 feet of water. I missed my opportunity this summer to fish the topwater as the day Luc called me I already had a trout trip planned.
I finally got the call back. Unlike summer fishing, we could fish later in the morning and I did not need to be at Luc's until 6am. Fishing was fair and we both managed a handful of bass. We missed a fair amount and had several pop the hook out. This was due to the fact that with a fast full sinking line and several tens of feet of line out in the water, keeping the line taut is not easy. Luc did manage a 4.5 pound catfish towards the end of the morning before we called it quits around 10am. All in all not fantastic day but not a terrible day either.
