Fort Loudon Fishing Report - 6/23/09

Brandon and I fished the Tuesday Night Thunder out of Louisville Point Park this week and could have performed much better, to say the least. On my first cast, I hooked up with a largemouth on a Carolina rig that would have been about 3.5 lbs but he threw my hook less than an inch from the net! Brandon was stretched out so far, I thought he was going in after him! We caught a few more dinks when, finally, I caught a small keeper that weighed 1.52 lb. Brandon hooked into a nice keeper smallmouth that ran under the boat and came unbuttoned from a crankbait. We caught several more short fish and had a good time.
Primarily, we fished the Concord area. We didn't want to make a long run due to all the logs and trash in the lake. Driving back to the ramp in the dark right now is absolutely horrible! My lower unit is brand new and I don't want to break it again. We used Carolina rigged worms, lizards, and craws, deep diving crankbaits, shakey heads, Texas rigged worms, poppers, and spoons. We caught fish on all except the spoon. I think we landed 20 or so fish.
The winners, Doug Yonce and Troy Dyer, had 18.18 lbs. Great job guys!
