Anderson Lake, Bass Fishing, Feburary 4, 2012

Went down to Anderson Lake to go fishing again and brought Adele to captain the boat.

Fished form 11:30 to 4:30.
Water 52-53
Sunny, 67, slight breeze.

Started off at flat across the lake from the ramp, caught a trout on the second cast with a crawdad colored crankbait!  Couldn't believe it!  They haven't stocked Anderson Lake near Morgan Hill for quite some time, so I guess there are still some holdovers in there?

Didn't get another bite the rest of the day, tried shallow, tried some deeper stuff, tried points, just nothing was biting on the dropshot and shakey head. Switched from a worm to a Yum craw thing on the shakey head.

Talked to some guy at the ramp, he seemed to have found them, said to look for the underwater humps, and they were still deep.  It's like why fish in 5ft of water when most fish are 30ft deep? I think he said he was using green hula on a football head jig or something?

Finally picked up a trolling motor Sunday, Feb 5.  Minn Kota Maxxum.  We'll see how she mounts up on the boat.
