June 19 – Topwater Fun!
Mineral, VA – Here how Chris Craft’s morning went recently with some special clients….
This morning I met Eric Fonda and Chris at 5:30am. Chris is another one of the guys in Eric’s program. Eric works with special needs people. We started throwing top water and hooked up pretty quick. The first fish of the day was a nice four pounder. Chris caught the second fish on a popper and that was a funny one. He cast up and into a small tree, the popper fell to the water and I was on my way to retreive the bait…. that is when the fish ate it. We landed the fish and he measured up. The top water bite lasted about four hours and then it was time for shakey heads. Chris was throwing a Bandit 100 series crankbait and was catching everything in the lake. He caught four different species. Bass, striper, shellcracker and white perch! By the end of the day we put 16 fish in the boat and lost five. Not bad for a lake that a lot of people still refer to as “The Dead Sea” or “One Fish Anna”. LKA in the summer time can be outstanding, you just have to give her a chance!
Blogger update: Eric Fonda fished a tournament after fishing with MLAGS Associate Guide Chris Craft and Fonda won with just over 12 pounds! Good work guys.
