Lake K Skinnies + Fatties

Postby dinodadog » Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:10 pm

Was very annoyed to have to wait till 6am for gate to be opened at Lake K this morning when it was supposed to open at 5.30am, seems to be a regular thing lately. Thank goodness the bass were hungry and made me smile again. Managed nearly 40 bass, biggest going 37cm and there was 10 that only went 20cm. I was trolling and casting blades.

Good to see you getting out in the yak Dino. Much weed in K at the moment?
Fresh is best, but I don't mind some salt every now and then!

There is more subsurface weed than surface, I saw a few toga break the surface near the edges but was not able to attract their attention using the small pomadour.

Nice one!

You continually catch more bass in a session than I've caught in my life!

Cheers,

By the way get a couple on a brag mat with the YUFN and join the social bass comp! I've seen some of the bass you pull from the dams and reckon your a shot at the top spot! :gu:

Yes the guy that unlocks the gate seems to work on his own schedule. Some nice bass on deep divers weekend before last still haven't caught a toga yet
To see the difference between having input and being committed look no further than bacon and eggs. The chook has input but the pig is committed.

Thankyou all, its the best session I have had there for awhile.I am not allowed to tag at NPD at the moment so I slipped over to Lake K for the morning, I was surprised to see so many willing bass. I managed to tag quite a few that were over the 22cm minimum tag size. I got a bit of a shock when I pulled the tarp off the hobie outback the night before, right in the seat cavity was a rats nest made up of 5lt of chewed up leaves,just caught in time before the breeding started. Was not happy with several piddle stains to clean up. (might have to yak more often :lol: )

I was up to nearly 50 toga caught before yakking allowed and since hardly any.

Pulled up there before and gate was closed until 8 as they were mowing without notice...
Great haul. Best I've managed at K this season is a mid 30 and a 40 till :grr:
