    Default This morning on Falls Lake

    Falls has warmed up nicely so this morning during one hot hour, I fished some spawning flats and picked up (3) 5 pounders with 3 different baits; a jig, a frog, and a bladed jig.

    Hope they don't notice the upcoming cold front.

    Fantastic plus a top water bite. I tried a popper in a local pond no luck only hits were on a worm.

    Great fish! What (general) part of the lake were you fishing? (If you don't mind sharing)

    Above Cheek Rd... if you fish Falls enough youll find the color of the fish give it away. Heres one from a few weeks ago down around Route 50 though Im not sure the difference will show. Above Cheek they are faded out brown. Below green to blackish green.

    Fished Falls hard this morning for almost 8 hours. Only 2 bites and one fish but she was a 5.8 lb hog who creamed a frog.

    This is my first season with the frog.... I think I like it! Never really had confidence in top waters but it sure is exciting when it works.

    Heres a little guy I got yesterday.

    I dont know Hickory but these are definitely up lake in the muddy shallows that warm first. My sense is that now they are in the spawn, and cant be seen, the fishing is tough and slow. Im thinking I need to head down lake where the spawn should be a little later and maybe I can more easily go finesse for fish on the beds in clearer water. Or maybe head down to Shearon where there are plenty of bigguns that can be seen. Or maybe Kerr since the bushes are I play for us Kerr novices. Lots of fish in Kerr, just fewer biguns.

    Im getting into this spawn thing a little deeper each year.... interesting.

    Then the shad will go crazy and the spawn can be ignored for awhile.

    Exactly where I had to go to find fish. All I caught were in close. I finally went Texas rig metallic purple worm. It was still slow until I added brass and bead. They went into attack mode then.

    Okay then, adding some flash might help a lot. Ive never added a blade or bead.... is that trailing bead or at the head? May need some BassPro help
