Beautiful day to be out fishing with high expectations of November fat bass and pike.
Took the long muddy walk to a spot that's been good to me in previous November's.
Haven't fished there for quite a while, and when I got there it made me angry. What
used to be pristine was covered with beer bottles, bait containers, even a pizza box.
So my secret spot is officially dead.

Now for the fishing report. I've been avoiding the preserve lakes due to the fact it's
been hot and sunny for the most part, and mosquito swarms have extended out to
the street. Knew the weed growth would be extreme, and it's still very thick for this
time of year. Threw a crawfish colored chatter on the way out and a black/blue chatter
on the way back. Also had a chartreuse road runner/twister for any pan fish hanging
around. Did not get a single bite in over two hours of casting. Saw about 5 fish out in
the middle of the lake busting shad.

So except for my soul, it was very disappointing. Of course, this outcome has everything
to do with our weird weather patterns. Maybe December? Cold snap coming next week,
but who knows.

My guess is you were throwing the wrong bait...I know we care but the fish can't see the trash.

BTW...turnover is long gone, slow your retrieve and hold your rod tip high.

Tinmare, why did even take the time to post stupidity?
This site is worth joining because it lacks the snark of
most sites. No more preserve posts from me.

Lighten up man, it a a joke obviously. I've been to maple many times and have yet to see trash, some dumb kids perhaps. I was over at horsetail lake yesterday and saw 2 large pumpkins that were thrown into the water, I'm not ranting over it.
