Some days you get ‘em, some days you don’t. Today I didn’t strike out so I guess it was a good day. Other than a miserable trip for an hour on a cold and windy day, I have not struck out on Lake Fork yet. I am probably enacting some kind of curse now that I have said that. It’s a good thing I am not superstitious. If a bad day on Lake Fork means three nice fish, I am in the right place!
There was not much action in the cove today. I didn’t go anywhere else. I got lured in by two nice fish and ended up staying there until it was too late to go to another spot. I caught about 10 pounds in three fish, so that works for me.
We are expecting a cloudy day tomorrow. I hope to be able to get out. My expectation is that it will be a better day to fish.
Yellow Magic Japanese Topwater Lure
Check out this Yellow Magic topwater lure. I met these guys at the Toyota Classic last weekend. This lure is engineered in Japan and they made some huge claims about it. Today wasn’t a good enough sample to make a determination. If anyone has any experience with it, e-mail me or register and post. I’m curious. I bought two of them, a small one and the “Magnum” version, which is 1/2 ounce. They are available at Bass Pro Shops for $14.95. It’s steep I know. We’ll see if their claims are good.
