Boated only a few guapote today, but my clients had 20 or more takes on top-water lures. The guapote can be lighting fast at times, testing your patience to not jerk too fast. Other times they are just swatting the lure because it's there, with no real take down. Either way, it's good to see them active in this high water.
Remind me why we like fishing so much? Oh yeah, because it's so much more fun than working -- yeah, that's it!
Well, fishing can be work too, getting up at 2:30am to launch at 4:30am, to pick up our loyal clients at 5:30am. And some days, it takes changing lures over and over to get fish in the boat, like today, three changes for three nice guapote.
Conditions: The lake water is clear and rising a bit.
The water is still quite high but we are still finding a few fish close on the shoreline in the heavy grass. Some of the feeder rivers are running muddy. But, oh yeah, the volcano blew several times.
With water levels high the fishing continus to be a challange, we still have a early bite but it can slow down quickly. good news is that dense clouds help the bite stay on a little longer.
