When up to Belew Sat. morning for our first tourney of 2015. It was cold, but the fish didn't mind they still want to eat. Our temp. gauge is out of order, do know water was warmer than air temp. 1st. place had [email protected] 9.?? and 2nd was [email protected]?? and 3rd place my son in pic. had [email protected] and BF 3.12lbs the large mouth in pic. He got both is large fish off a-rig in 20 plus ft of water off points and picked up two on Shakey head worms. I pick up two small spots on c0rig and my custom painted jerk bait in pic. Barret would have won but in missed a good fish just before weigh-in on the s.head, bad hook set. But a good day. From what I seen the lake has many spots in it and not bad sizes. Of the 6 fish put in our boat 5 were spots.:rolleyes: Vertebrate Water Tree Fish Fisherman

That's not a bad haul for Belews, nice job! Yes, there are quite a few spots in the lake now. I tend to get more largemouth when using shakey heads or T-rigs on the channel swings targeting ambush fish on rock or wood cover, but overall numbers are marginally better using jerk baits, A-rigs, and such and with those methods I see more spots.

Congrats on big fish, and sounds like you had it pretty close with the weights... just a matter of a missed fish or two by the sound of it.

Nice job on a quirky lake!

Reading Sam and Jerry post, help us a lot. We hadn't been there in about 15 years. Keep those post up!!!! Those spot were eating good for our club, may have had over 50% spots.;)

You're welcome, lol. Still no big fan of the spotted vermin, unless they are where they're supposed to be. But as long as no more expansion is noted, I guess it's ok. I guess I need to catch a three or four pounder to give an honest assessment of their legendary fighting ability, Neither Sam nor I could vouch for the ones we caught being better scrappers than our beloved largemouth.

I'll second that. Guess I need to catch a bigger spot to see what the fuss is about.

Congrats on the blog award! ;)
