Property Name : Jones Lake
Reservation Date : 05/06/2021 AM -
Total Fish/Sizes : 50 bass 5 1/2 lbs to 8"
Lures Used : yum dingers 4" & 5" wtless

Fished from 7am to noon. The lake was full plus and clear. The launch area was in excellant shape and the vegetation was generally well below the surface but I was fishing either shallow or targeting surface vegetation so I fished weightless using 4” & 5” watermelon/red & watermelon seed yum dingers. 

Caught 50 bass the largest was 5 ½ lbs ,3 at 3 1/2lbs 3 at 3 lbs and many 2 ½ lbs bass. Removed 18 that were under 14” and 8 of those were 10” or less. I caught 12 bass before leaving the launch area and when the feeder went off at 7:30 I stopped bass fishing for and hour and a half to go after the large bream that this lake has to offer. After catching 30 large to medium bream. Nothing huge this trip.

Decided to go back after the bass and the action was so good I never got away from the end where he has his pontoon boat. 38 bass in this area.Went back to the feeder around 11:15 for a few more bream on a popper. I only covered 30 % of the lake

That’s a great day of fishing Joe!  Hopefully someone else gets out soon to see what’s in the other 70% of the lake
