    Default 2017 Turkey Bowl

    Lee couldn't make this one , so I fished solo yesterday. Very foggy at idle off. Idled over to 208 bridge mainly to get my bearings in the fog and followed it across to the south side rip rap. Got bit about half way down and 1 lber goes in the livewell. Idle across to deep water edge between Mitchells and Contrary and pick up #2 (12"er) and #3...a nice 3 lber. So far all of these have come on a Jackall Squirrel. I'll let you fellas figure out the color, which is the ONLY color that I throw. Fog begins to clear, so I run half way back to a well known point in Contrary and 3 casts in I hook into a VERY nice fish. Never saw him as he came unbuttoned, but lets just say I could hardly move him. A little disgruntled, I fished on over to the now really super shallow humps than have maybe 18" of water on them, but deeper water all around them. Lake is down almost 3' now. Nothing there, so I idle back over to the point I just lost the nice one on and hit it from a different angle. BAM... biggest fish of the day inhales the Squirrel. Weighed 4.60 lbs. Stayed there for a while , but nothing else. Ran up to all of the usual cranking spots in the Anna and Pamunkey arms an stayed until about Noon. Really not "feeling" the uplake thing, I decided to head back down to midlake area. Repeating the spots I had hit earlier, I could only pick up one more 1.5 lber in Contrary to fill out a limit. Finished the day with 10.58 lbs in 2nd place. Good to see everyone. Wayne did a fantastic job on the Turkey legs and ribs. Thanks Wayne. Until next time, enjoy your holidays.
