Last time I had the pleasure to fish Lopez I caught a monster! A six plus a bag of chips pound fish, see pic below caught on a spider jig (Gary Yamamoto):
|6.65 pound bucket mouth fatty aka Lopez Lunker :)|
The rest of the day I concentrated on main lake areas with my spider jig and drop shot. Ended up with 3 keepers for an 11th place finish, not that great. Winner worked drop shots on main lake points.
Take home lesson was to fish main lake in the summer and leave the shallower areas for spring time. If I do fish areas with shallow water, concentrate on the deeper portions where fish can recover in post spawn. On a positive note if I had not made the adjustment during the tournament I could have skunked (zero'd).
