a long stretch for us not to fish together, what with several family/event/vacation days, etc, coming up for us...

And it is quite a bit HOTTER since the last time ( too bad the fishing isn't hotter! LOL)....but anyway, since most of the RES crew have been struggling on most of the waters, we figured we would do something different and hit East Croton....

not unlike other waters, fishing was very slow: the negs: water level is down here, and despite some heavy matting ( in shallowest water ), the weeds in the deeper water do not extend out much more than 10 feet in most places and are very brownish, and full of slimy gunk....

our bites come primarily on the bottom with combinations of approaches: otter, worm, spinnerbait, soft jerk....just not much going on, however, we did manage to scratch out 8 Bass and 2 picks, but luckily one of the bass was a nice 5.3 pounder:




water color was VERY stained, and unclear in most areas...lots of algae scum and streaking....water temps were only79, but air got pretty hot and it was very much high humidity....

Mon through Wed is calling for mid 90s along with that same humidity, so , tough conditions should continue down here...

Ah he was lucky I got the little fish out of the way first.....lol
It was really hot, and just a fish here and there no real pattern, but we did run into one of John favorties out sunning himself.
