After a late am start Goose Hunter and I went on a fish hunt in the main pit at his club.
After taking a few dinks between us This nice Hoochie Mama put up a stink for me.
I was so excited to measure her after the picture that I let her slip right off the ruler.
It was both exasperating and rewarding feelings watching her take her time and swim down into the clear pit.
I took some ribbing from the boat captain during our voyage until he pulled the same stunt with a nic very near nine incher.

We poked about in a lot of familiar spots scaring up a few more keeper size Gills and GH reeled in a very husky Rockie to boot.

We managed a couple of nice Perch to round out the day.
Most fish came on Jig and minnow/ wax worm combo.
Thanks Ang for another great day at the pit. :D

Have you tried the gulp 1" fish fry product? Might work well with the water cooling. Looks like a picture perfect day to be sitting atop the water.

Fishy, We used mostly Small jigs with wedgie type tails and minnows or wax worms.
You can use the jigs on a straight line or under a bobber. Fishing the strip mines can be tricky. A lot of water holds no fish.
Have never shore fished there or any other Strip mines. There are areas at Mazonia that can be accessed from the shore or by boat.
