  • Briery last week

    Had a chance to hit Briery last week...wanted to chase some schooling fish but forecasted 5/10 mph winds didn't get my hopes up...5/10 turned it probably 20 sustained.....threw a lot of different things at them including a 110 that I casted into the abyss ....finally I said screw it and tied on a whopper plopper and started to chuck in wind...after about 10 minutes a hung a good one...22 1/2 inches but skinny but i'll take another citation....tm'd over to the other side of the lake and hit a windy point and bamn...another really solid fish around 4/5 pounds...kept on going down the bank and another one smoked the plopper...this one came off and it was prob 5/6 pounds but at that point I wasn't even mad....ok, maybe a little..tied on a plopper for my pard and they lost another really solid fish and I had one more blow up...not a bad day

          I fished there on the 16th and it was windy--the weather man lied again.
          Managed to catch 22 bass with the largest at 7# 2 oz.
          Also caught several crappie over 1#, they would hit a wacky rigged Trick work but not good enough to get hooked, followed up those hits with a small jig to catch them to confirm what species was doing that.
          Since I got the Minnkota Ultrex, the wind is not so bad to deal with.

            Would love to go there, what do you think from a kayak?

              I see lots of fishing kayaks there. Was three launching the same time I was on the 16th.
