Feels Like August

A series of things kept me from fish Fri, Sat, and Sun., so I was anxious to get out there tonight. Unfortunately the weather was calling for scattered thunderstorms. I jumped on the boat around 6 PM and planned on fishing Lake Riva. Not much was happening, so I decided to make a run for it. As I approached the bay, the water was completely flat, but a huge black cloud was hanging over the shoal. Just sort of drifted around for about 15 minutes and finally picked up a small 16 on a white twisty. Just as I tossed her back in the rain came. It was hot, muggy, and very buggy. Felt like a August night. After waiting out a short rain burst, I switched over to my black Stillwater. It was not long before I had a huge blow up. This fish hit only 10 feet from the boat so I was treated to a wonderful dance up close. A nice 24. Picked up and headed in to calm waters and a very nice sunset.
