Columbus Lake Report 3/14/11 Another good day considering.
I left the house this afternoon just after the first wave of rain moved in. I had been watching this band of rain all day and it seemed to be moving rather quickly. So I decided that if I left the house just after it started, I wouldn't have to wait long to go fishing. Wrong. I sat at the ramp for an hour before I decided it was clear to go. It was like the front stalled when it got to the river. Anyhow, I left the ramp around 5:00 and drove really slow cause the rain was still perppering down. Got to the spot That I went to yesterday and They were still some there. Caught most of these on minners after they quit hitting a grub. Had fun anyhow. Just throwing a minnow out under a cork about 12" deep and sit back and wait for the bit and the next shower. It rained off and on the whole time I was out there. If you don't have good raing gear, let me recommend the Pro Qualifiers from Bass Pro. Yea they are expensive, but I was dry when I got back to the truck at 7:30 tonight. Ended up catching 11 nice ones. Missed 4 or 5 more that were just as good and had a couple of 10" throw backs.
