I love the occasional mid-week day off. I got to the reservoir around 9:15am and stayed until about 3:15. Before I launched I made a couple test casts to see how the rod would handle the Bomber A. On the second cast I hooked this smallie. Looks more like it got snagged. ???
I then headed to the right fairly close to shore. Once I got around the corner something gently took up the fire tiger Bomber A. It wasn't much of a fight. The 10" smallies I caught this year fought 10 times harder. 16" though.
Then a whole lot of time passed and I paddled all over the place. Someone had been fishing the sharp drop off in the middle. Once he had cleared out I decided to give it a shot. I had been trying various things like a glass shad rap, tube, and senko, but I was still sticking with a 4-6ft diving Bomber A on one rod. I paddled to the north end of the ledge so the wind would blow me south along it. On the first pass just a few feet before pulling the Bomber A out of the water, this 11" crappie attacked it. It came home for dinner. The last time catching a crappie here was last November, also with a fire tiger Bomber A.
I'd call it a good day for Beaverdam. It's definitely tougher fishing for me there during the cooler months, but the fire tiger Bomber A has been the go-to lure for November.
