I arrived at the lake about 730PM. Started off with the minnow on light action. Worked one spot not a nibble. Moved on to another favorite spot and after about 15 mins got a little 4 incher lot of attitude in that little guy.

Decided since it was only about 815 to try a t rigged trick worm to no avail. Switched over to a jointed jitterbug and at about 840. A nice 2.5 pounder that was taking drag like mad finally got it to surface and realized not that big and brought it home. I tightened up the drag a little. About 900 switched over to biz bait and not more than 10 feet from were the 2.5 pounder hit another nice 1.5 er grabbed it and ran had main hook nice in the upper jaw.

I was hoping since the topwater bite started earlier it was going to be a good night but not a nibble after the 1.5 er. decided to call it an evening at 945.

It really was a great weather night low humidity and nice skies got to see some sort of fireworks display nearby and got a couple of fish.

Tomorrow starts retirement can't wait to see what my first retirement bass looks like!!!!

Last week did good with the shallow minnow and buzz baits, nothing big but good numbers.

I know you wont see this for awhile because you're busy trying to get all the cobwebs out of the corners, moving furniture and spreading dropcloths but watch out these little projects have a way of growing. Now that you're retired you can expect that the bathroom is going to look a little shabby next to the freshly painted bedroom, so get ready. You've got to find a way to get some fishing time in there too. I see you like to go after dinner so there usually is not too much painting going on there because of the light and so you should be safe. That's what I do or go early before the wife wakes up. She's pretty much out of it till she's had a couple cups of coffee anyway. Hope you enjoy your retirement as much as I do. Even though my paintbrushes are at the ready. Just did the bathroom this weekend---even longer story.

Actually I am the one pushing these projects my wife procrastinates so now my job is pushing her to finish stuff up I am holding a Hawaii vacation over her head as incentive!!! I havea list of little chores and projects many can wait till winter but just need to knock off the bedroom since master bath was done earlier this year
