Trip to Lake Wihelm


Made a trip up to Lake Wilhelm on Saturday with my girlfriend and the dog, we launched around 10:30 AM from Launch #4.  We started fishing on some humps and roadbeds with a shad colored crankbait, did this for around 2 hours without a hit.  Next we moved down the lake to a weed bed and was able to get two hit on a white 3/8 oz spinnerbait but didn’t get hooked up.  Our next stop was some laydowns farther down the lake.   I was able to get a small largemouth, 14” or so, on a 3/8oz black and blue jig.  Not a big fish by any means but I was very happy to finial get a fish in the boat.  I worked the rest of the laydowns on that shore and got a few more hits but was unable to hook up with anything.  We made one finial stop on the way back up the lake in a small weed patch in 6 feet of water and I was able to get another largemouth and lost one on the same jig I caught the other one on.  The fish were not eating that well at all but it was a beautiful day on the water.

    Wilhelm is a great lake. It has something for every type of fishermen: Weeds, wood, deep structure, pads, ect. Only getting a few little ones up there makes it one of my worst trips every to that lake, but like I said before Wilhelm gives me at least one bad trip every year.
