Better late than never as this post is a bit tardy for the customary Monday update. The days are definitely getting shorter and after a short local warm-up it looks like some pretty chilly overnights are on the horizon. Don’t you dare give up yet though, as there’s still plenty of bites out there to be caught.
Angler: Jim Junk
Date: September 29
Location: Banner Marsh
Lure: Texas rigged Senko
Angler Comments: Was getting dark and was leaving, stopped for one last cast. Threw Texas rigged Senko over some reeds into a small pool that had been completely weed covered all year. Couldn’t see my line but felt the tap, tap and felt the line moving. Set the hook on this 4-6 and called it a night.
Top 5 Weight: 23-15 (5-3,4-14,4-12,4-10,4-8)
It’s been a tall order for our leader to cull but always good to get a fish story from Jim to pass along. Hey, any four-pounder deserves some recognition, crazy when it falls short of adding some weight to a creel. Yep, I’m a bit envious and sure hoping to get a few more casts before my 2019 fishing year comes to a close. Hope some others get in some more fishing as well. Talk to you later. Troy
