They were calling for rain this afternoon so I decided to take advantage of the dry time. I loaded up and headed to Lakeview Lake in Bonne Terre, MO.
Temp was in the 50s with an 8 mph wind. I assembled the fly rod and reel and tied on a brass head black fly. I looked over the lake and decided I would start at a point where the wind was behind me.
I fished for a good hour before I finally caught a small largemouth. I released it into the lake. I walked down the bank about 50 yards and began fishing. After about 20 minutes I caught a small perch.
By now the wind changed direction and was blowing into my face so I moved to the other side. About the third cast I caught another small perch.
I began easing my way around the lake fishing as I went and I soon caught a largemouth snd this one was bigger.
I fished another 45 minutes and managed to catch another small perch and finally a pretty nice one.
All in all it was a good day and I enjoyed the time on the lake. Planning another trip real soon.
