Fort Loudon 6/17/12 Bass Report

Put in at Concord ramp at 6:00 am and headed down the lake towards dam only a few miles.  It was a windy morning but it felt great.
I started out cranking a 5XD in shallow water so it would bang off all the rocks and immediately caught 2 short largemouth.  I switched to a Carolina rigged 10 inch worm on the same point and landed a small keeper.
I moved on down the lake and caught  8 or 9 more flipping laydowns and rocks with various plastics.
I ended the day fishing a tube very deep with the hook exposed and caught 2 more keepers.
Between my friend and I we caught over 20 fish and would have had a small limit if we were fishing a tournament.  We couldn't find the bigger fish.
We pulled back to the ramp about 11:30 am and called it a day.
The later it got the fewer fish we caught.  The wind picked up as the day went on and made it very hard to stay on one spot.  The early morning bite is good and the fish seem willing to bite just about anything.
Happy belated Father's Day to all the dads out there!
It's been a long time since I posted anything on this blog, but I'm trying to get back into it.  I apologize for the long absence.
