The largemouths continue to show interest in poppers all over the lake. Last Thursday I managed to net 14 over the course of less than 4 hours of fishing.
As is typical, optimal fishing with poppers starts about 1/2 hr before sunrise and tails off once the sun is fully on the water.
Somewhat surprisingly the fish have shown some heft. I measured each of the fish and the were typically in the 13" - 15" range. It's been fun watching them 'grow up' over the years since the lake was refilled.
