This one was number four for the day. Caught on a #blackwithblueflecksenko from #knotatwork on the beautiful Potomac river.

TdawgA real beauty. Great choice of lures! That Senko has fared me well this summer. Lately i have skinny'd my tackle tray down to Senko's and Mann's baby minus one's and a few frogs. All i have needed for quality fish on almost every outing. Still waiting for the big hawg on a frog!

The conference paid off shortly afterwards. This guy was caught on a #blackwithblueflecksenko These guys are small but they are very strong after growing up in the Potomac's currents. A great fight on light and medium tackle from #knotatwork. No Skunk today!

TdawgWas that on a weightless Senko drifting with the current?

#blackwithblueflecksenko. When the bite is on up the creek all Senkos are on the menu. Today greenpumpkin, Orange, and black with blue fleck all did very well. With the current heat advisories it's best to fish early or just take a break for a few days.

My buddy landed the next one, but it was a short so all we got was this photo. Caught on a #blackwithblueflecksenko . This little guy was lurking in a pocket amongst the grass, you can see how thick it is just astern of the #bos-mon on the starboard side. #nhba

CanuckI try but he is one of my many friends who don't own a camera or what to take pictures. I have had one friend so far join up and he posted 4 stories then clammed up. I plan to get back in touch with him to try to find out why.

The last catch of the morning, once more on a #blackwithblueflecksenko. We ventured further up the creek in the gathering heat. We got to a point where we could barely turn the #bos-mon around to get out and stayed there for a while trying to entice any of the Bass we saw to bite. Frogs, other color senkos, Baby 1-. None of them worked. So we left shortly after the high tide and fished a bit more in a shady area we found. No success there although we saw quite a few more fish. Finally the nearly 100 degree heat forced us back to the ramp after almost 4 hours of fishing and almost 2 hours of cruising to and fro. Great morning of fishing followed by a great afternoon of snoozing in my air conditioned living room.

This is more evidence of my progress at soft bite detection and catching. I cast my #blackwithblueflecksenko up channel and just off the grass beds on the port side. As it dropped I felt a very slight bump and dropped my rod tip. Next thing I felt was this little guy running away with it and it was FISH-ON! #bos-mon

Right off the bat - I did not catch this fish. We were cruising dead slow up the channel when I spotted her just off the starboard bow. I shouted to Tdawg to get a line in as I cut the motor. He dropped a #blackwithblueflecksenko right on top of her and it was FISH-ON!. This is the first time either of us have sight fished a largemouth. A successful collaboration for the Coalition Fishing Program. #bos-mon

This was my third and last catch of the day. I hooked a few more but they were long distance releases. The total hook up was 10, not bad for my first 'Yak float chasing Smallies with plastics. I am fairly sure it is my most productive plastic day ever. The #blackwithblueflecksenko just drove them crazy. Like Shaka, this is my 200th post - so now the race is one to see who reaches 'Cuda first! #mileston #knotatwork #prsc

It was after lunch before I landed the next one. Same #blackwithblueflecksenko on mid river structure. In the interim I had hooked a few and often thought I had a huge one on the line judging by the degree of fight. I lost them all before I could see them. That is still a lot of fun on a glorious day on the river. #knotatwork #prsc

On Sunday we fished the Chickahominy River and my buddy landed these two to capture first place for the day in our New Horizons Bass Anglers tourney. Black proved to be the shade of the day. One was caught on a #blackhornytoad, the second was caught on a #blackwithblueflecksenko . Both were caught near lilly pads in the heavily tea stained water. They were quite lively after the weigh-in and he struggled to keep that small one in his hand. Both were safely released back into the water. As for me, the soft bite detector continued to malfunction. Post fish discussion provided a potential solution that I will try the next time. You will see the results of that in future posts. #nhba #bos-mon

Back out on Lake Chickahominy the next morning. Water temp was down to 80, but they were still biting oh-so-softly. My Buddy still got this one in the boat, on a #blackwithblueflecksenko . I was still working on that soft bite detector. #nhba #bos-mon

Out on Lake Chickahominy with my buddy from New Horizons Bass Anglers. We were on the water by 5:00 pm and I noted that the water temperature was 90 degrees. I honestly thought there was something wrong with my thermometer. My buddy ponders that a moment and says the bite will be very soft. Within about a half hour though he had hauled one of those soft bites into the boat to wash the skunk off us. Caught on a #blackwithblueflecksenko . I was still trying to figure out what he meant by "soft bite" #nhba #bos-mon
