Largemouth Bass - The New Coldwater Fish?
We've had a lot of rain here in the Northwest Corner and the water level in the lake is up about a foot and a half, and colder by what I am guessing is about 10 degrees, judging by my plunge.
Whatever it is, it seemed to stimulate the bass. More surface activity than in recent weeks, which seems odd to me, bucketmouths being a warm-water species.
I guess there's warm and then there's bathtub.
Besides, I long ago gave up trying to figure out fish.
I can't recommend the pith helmet enough as a fishing hat. It keeps the sun off and you can submerge it in water, to keep the head cool.
The latest in my series of Manly Fishing Photos. I have cunningly cropped out my embarrassing girth.
