Thanks to my good friend Jordan, the fishing fire has been reignited.

Fished last weekend for the first time on Bog Brook.
My old boss just put a boat on there a few months ago and had been
having a tough time figuring it out.
With the help of a decent topo, we were able to quickly find some quality
fish....sharp edges in and around the 20 foot mark held the bait and the best fish






With a new job starting in Weschester tomorrow, that freed up some time for me today
Hit a now "local to me" lake in Orange County for some good old summertime fishing....
Fish were stacked on the edges.....suckers for a slow rolled spinnerbait, crawled along the bottom.....
Green fish can be so predictable.









I think I'm getting the hang of this again!

Thanks for reading, D~

Nice work...i was on bogs 2 weeks ago and got a few little smallies, had a tough time finding em. The water level is down about 8-10 feet, zero normal shoreline left.
Yeah, water level looked way down...basically all I did was look for where the second and third breaks came close to deeper water.....fish were stacked in spots......all you had to do was trigger them

See this is why I like reading these reports, to pick up little tidbits like slow rolling spinnerbaits bumping on the bottom. Never would've guessed.
Summertime for me has always meant 2 baits......a mover and a shaker......for me a spinnerbait is more versatile than a crankbait, and I can slither it through the outside grass much better....you'd be surprised at how many times i had been catching them pitching outside when they just shut off on me.....slow rolling (and sometimes basically dragging lol) a spinnerbait in the same areas has worked way to many times for me to discount it.

A summertime mainstay in my book!
