I left the house at 3:30 (yeah I know...thats nuts) stopped for a coffee and a couple beef sticks for snacks later in the day then headed on down to the river. Was on the water by 4:30 ....I figured if the night fishing thing worked in the pond ...maybe it would work in the river?? Not so. I fished a frog popper until I could see a little light...never had a whiff.

Image

It started getting light about 5:30 or 6 ...even though I did'nt catch anything it was just kind of peaceful to be out there. It finally got light enough I figured I would try a zonker for a while since I had several good takes last time.

Image

Image

It was probably a good half hour before the first came to hand by way of the zonker....

Image

I changed up between that and the Dr. death while in deeper water and used a chatruese cup faced popper in the shallows. I pretty much scored Largemouth,Smallmouth,Redeye,redbreast,shellcracker and a jackfish.

Image

the heck with the bronze....this trip was pure gold!

Image

Image

Image

Image

You know when you catch a brim big enough to lip like a bass....its gonna be a good day!

Image

And then I hit paydirt!!....

Image

Image

Image

It was a great day on the water.....the Savannah is always a pretty and enjoyable place to fish!....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Took a little break around 1 PM.....

Image

noticed lots of kayakers and canoers coming in....

Image

Also noticed some serious clouds in the distance...

Image

So I decided to fish my way back over to the put in and get ready to go home....Just as I got loaded up and as more floaters put in....I shut the hatch on the truck...felt a few raindrops...heard some thunder and saw a flash of lightning....before I could even pull away from the put in...the clouds broke open....

Image

the ride home....

Image

I feel sorry for all those fools putting in and ignoring the thunder....me...I'm doin' fine! :D
