Subject: Stick Marsh & Farm 13 Catching Report
Date: Sunday, October 26, 2003 10:33 PM

Catching at Stick Marsh & Farm 13 is a matter of catching the weather in a favorable mood. When the weather is right the catching is AWESOME!! When the weather is contrary so are the bass. This past week has had a little of each. Some AWESOME catching and some contrary catching.

On Monday of last week I went out for a few hour looking for some new places to catch bass. My concentration has been on Stick Marsh. Hardly any one is fish the Stick Marsh. The Stick Marsh is a living lake. Meaning.....it changes as the grass comes and goes, the level changes, the current changes, the wood disappears. What ever! It is not the same all the time.

On Monday I found one area of Stick Marsh with hydrilla and coontail grasses. In this area I was able to get one huge bite pitching and six bites on my Chug Bug. Enough! There are fish here. I moved on and found another area with a tiny bit of topped out hydrilla and was able to catch two real nice bass. Bass here so I moved on. Found a third area with mostly timber and a little bit of grass. Yep-bass. Three bites told me what I wanted to know.

With three new places found I headed home after four hours on the water. All new places in Stick Marsh. Maybe, they are not new places. However, they are places where bass are now that they were not a short while back.

At the ramp I told a friend about one of the places I';ve found. He reported to me that he had seven in two hours on worms, flukes, and Long A's. They bit better for him.

On Sunday the weather was dominated by High Pressure. The bass did not want to bite. In three hours fishing I found one bite-one bass about three pounds. Did get to talk to a couple of bassers. They said on Saturday they had about 40. On Sunday they had seven as of when I saw them-about noon and all were smaller bass. High Pressure got them.

During High Pressure bass do not want to move. They huddle close to wood and grass. The one I caught was under a hydrilla mat. Key work UNDER. There was no indication the fish bit until I put pressure on the lure. Sure sign of a bass that just opened his mouth and let some thing fall in during the high presure. I feel like if I had not pulled on him he would not have pulled on me.

The High Pressure is supposed to be out by Monday. (27th). The moon is new. Look out on Tuesday! I gotta go that day. Trip or not.
