      The SE wind had me choosing to go North in Platte. Not a good choice on this cool evening. I only got two bass. The first was a two pounder that was relating to shallow weeds close to a drop off. The three pounder was caught in 5’ of water next to a rice point on a inside turn. I missed a bite on a frog about a half hour later on that same rice/inside turn. I also got a few pike on the Big Blade Chatterbait.

      I had motor issues tonight, so I scrapped going down to Sullivan while underway and went to the far North of Platte instead. The bay I went to sets up like the one I reported on the other day; a weed flat behind the reeds and rice/pads lining the shore. I got my first bass casting out over the coontail with the frog. My final three fish came from rice/pads. Apparently my battery wasn’t charged properly and so 45 minutes into fishing on this windy night I was running low on juice for the trolling motor. I caught all of my fish in that first 45-minutes. My biggest bass was just under three pounds and my four fish weighed 9.54lbs. I fished the final two hours of daylight until it was dark (8:45pm)

      The wind was blowing out of the SE this morning, so I thought I would give the North end that’s protected from that wind direction a try. I have mostly written off Platte this year due to a severe winter kill and have spent the vast majority of my time this year in Sullivan. I lost a two pound bass that hit my Snagproof Frog in pads, rice, and reeds. I missed a couple of other bites, but they easily could have been pike. I then moved out of the slop and caught four bass on the Greenfish Buzzbait in short order on a shallow coontail flat that is tucked in behind the reeds. I also caught a bunch of mostly small pike. I also got a nice bass in the rice and pads along the inside edge of the reeds on the Snagproof. I got my final bass of the trip along the North side of the Big Island on the buzzbait. My biggest bass was three and a half pounds. I consider getting six bass on Platte a victory at this point.
