got this murrel on a popper today at 0700. besides this i was able to get a popper broken off by a monster of a fish probably a mulley. another murrel took off with my treble and split ring.
i had seen a sharp drop in the water levels due to the heat and consequent migration of baitfish to other parts of the lake. i scouted around and found a spot ,weed choked and snaggy . put on a popper and made a beaut of a cast.got an immediate hit and had a good fight. the fish ran to the weeds and i sent my retriever to scoop it out. he went and came back with an empty line ! i had been bitten off. i attached a fluro leader and another popper. another hit but a failed hook up. had two more blow ups before i was able to land this one.
