Bass fishing Jan. 7 2012
« on: January 07, 2012, 06:11:31 PM »

A buddy of mine talked me in to taking the boat out today so we headed to a small lake in Northern IN. Wow am I glad he talked me into it! We fished from 9 to 1 and landed 51 bass. Most of them were small 12 to 13 inchers but we did manage to catch a 5.5 lber and one just over 3 lbs. It was crazy we caught most of them without moving the boat and caught them on everything we threw. Dropshot, blade baits, swimbaits, and erie darters. What a  crazy winter!

You guys have cabin fever really bad. He was probably having too much fun catching bass to stop fishing and take pictures!

And that didn't take long.............the cabin fever setting in and it really being bad.    :o    Should that surprise you.  All I want is to see what a bass looks like in January.  I have never seen one before.  I always wonder if they look the same or have a hat and gloves on.

Jealous, I think is how I feel.  But a good jealous.  Those are some nice winter fatties.  I am glad someone around here is having fun.  So that's what bass look like in January.

We had our first club meeting this last Sunday and instead of watching the sleds zip up and down the lake - we were all looking at the skim of ice and thinking about making a cast. Jealous!
