Fishing Hogan This Week Feb 22
Today I had a chance to fish with one of my longtime fishing buddies, Bud Porter. We got a late start and finally hit the water at about 10 am. Right away we saw the water clarity was stained with about 10 feet of visibility. The surface temp was 54 degrees and the lake was at 48 percent.
We started throwing a lot of moving baits with no luck. After trying a few different down baits we ended up catching all of our fish on a Frenzy Baits Nail and WackaSack. We used a Strike King Ocho in the MoonJuice color. We were throwing all the baits on 20 pound braided mainline with an 8 pound Gama fluorocarbon leader.
We were surprised how shallow the fish were. We managed to catch a mixed bag of smallmouth and largemouth. We got nine fish total all in less than 10 feet of water.
All the fish came on secondary points. We would throw up in to about 5 feet of water and let it set there. After about a 10 count there would be a slight tick on the line. That is how every fish bit.
I hope this helps.
