Another Tough Day at Wilhelm

roadbed Oct1809

Sonar from the roadbed on Oct 18, 2009

Took at trip to Lake Wilhelm on Sunday with my Dad.  It wasn’t the warmest day on the water but it is October so fishing in the cold comes with the territory.  It was 38 degree with 15-20 mph winds, brrrr.  Water temp was 49 degrees. We launched around 10:00 AM from Launch #4.  We started fishing on some humps and roadbeds with a shad colored crankbaits and jigs for the first 2 hours without a hit. I’m pretty sure there were fish down there, see sonar, they were just not willing to eat for us.  Next we moved down the lake to a weed bed and was able to get two hit on a black and blue jig but didn’t get hooked up.  We then went to some laydowns but still couldn’t get hit.  We made one finial stop on the way back up the lake in a small weed patch in 5-7 feet of water and I was able to finally get a fish.  I nice 3lb largemouth on craw tube.  The fish were not eating as good as I was hoping but it was a beautiful day on the water.
