I had recently renewed all the registrations on my boat, trailer and my park sticker. I also spent some time doing some work to my boat as far as fixing leaks and updated the seats, so I had to test out the new equipment! I had made the decision very early on that I was going to fish on saturday, but unfortunately for me I didn’t check the weather when I decided this!
Saturday rolls around and it is about 50 degrees windy with about a 60% chance of rain! I decided to tough it out and go anyways. So i put on my Bass Pro rain suite and took the boat out. I decided to go to the closest lake to home since I knew I probably wouldn’t stay out long. So I went to Prairie Queen and ended up staying out for about two hours.
I started by fishing the rock jetty just to the east of the boat ramp with a spinner bait and a crankbait without any luck. So i headed out to the channel and fished deep into some of the trees. Again without much luck I headed towards the shore line where I knew the lake had been dug out. So there was a deep spot of about 18 feet that came up quickly to about 4-5 feet of water. As I was throwing my crankbait around this drop off I caught one small bass.
The fishing was slow and it rained on me the whole time so I decided to call it a day and pack up. But I was not disappointed, all of my equipment worked well and I caught a fish so it was good day!
Lake Ranking: 5 Star
This lake was new last year and has some great structure to fish and I have caught plenty of fish out of it. I look forward to trying it more this summer and hopefully get into some crappy this spring!
