Wow, what a great weekend
for fishing. The forecast for 10 days leading up to LOP looked like it would be a miserable tournament, but the
man upstairs smiled down on Cast=A-Way. We couldn't have asked for better. Warm days, cool nights, and just enough
wind to make the fishing great. LOP fishes like 2 completely different lakes. On the south end there is rocks,
pockets, coves, and drop offs. Up north, it is all river channels, shallow brush, grass and weeds. Fish what ever
you like, but you have to choose 1 or the other. Looks like the best choice was to make the run up north.
By the numbers, 18 anglers took to the water in 10 boats. 17 limits, and a total of 102 fish came to the scales
for a total weight of 169.46 Lbs. Pretty good mess of fish. Tony had a lot of work, but did a great job, as usual.
Denny and Jerry made the run up north, and it paid off big. Denny brought in a limit each day for a 2 day total of 25.74
Lbs to take his first Cast-A-Way win. Jerry had 2 limits also for a total of 24.08 Lbs and second place honors.
Duane had the best 2 limits from the south end to take third place with 16.50 Lbs. Doug found a nice 4.99 pounder
to take big bass money. Over all, everyone had a lot of fun, and brought in a lot of fish. Congratulations to
the winners, and all the anglers.
Denny and Jerry were throwing KVD 1.5 crank baits in chartreuse perch,
and chartreuse black back at isolated scattered cover up north. Spent a lot of time cleaning grass, weeds, and sticks
off the baits, but it paid off in a big way. The south end was a lot of different techniques. Drop shot,
top water, spinner baits, and soft plastics were all used.
Next up will be the Cast-A-Way Classic.
It was decided at the Saturday feed that we will be fishing Grapevine on May 2nd. Hours will be 6:30am until 2:00pm
out of Dove loop ramp. Hope to see all the qualifiers there.
After the classic, the very next weekend
we will be having our May tournament on Lake Arlington. The most loved, and hated lake we fish. Should be prime
time for some hawgs to be brought in.
Until next month, good fishing to all, and tight lines.
