    Firewood at Izors

    It was a slow pick on the bass today, although the quality was quite good with all bass in the 20"+ range. I will blame it on the night time full moon as there were scads of bass on the meter with lock jaw. We fished 4" and 5.5" BH plastics in redflake and red calico hunter. There was current, a...
