Solo Hopedale Disappearing Water Trip,

Saturday I left out of Hopedale and headed to an experimental location I don’t usually fish— but regularly pass through, seeing fish on my graph. This is a winding canal that is between 6- 15 ft in depth that connects two lagoons. The water was low and falling so I figured I’d head to some deep areas like this. Using twin opening night curly tailed lures on 1/8 oz. jig heads on 8 pound test on an ultra light reel, I bounced them off the bottom slowly while drifting with the current. Right away I started catching trout. After about 10 fish the bite slowed so I headed to a nearby dead end canal to fish reds. No redfish; had one strike. With nothing happening in that spot, I went to Grand Slam lagoon where several boats were already fishing. I picked a few more specks out of that area but it too was a slow production. I headed to One Quart of Fuel lake and started using the MirrOdine ¼ oz. MirroOlure and drifted around that area and One Pint of Fuel lagoon where I snagged several more specks. These lures are thin and flashy, with realistic fish appearance. These will prove to be great when I head to Breton Island soon to wade fish. Anyway, I came in early because the water was disappearing very fast all around me. I made it back to the launch with 17 trout and threw back a few small ones.

Good fishin’,
