"That made it hard on me," he said. "I went over and fished it for a little while after he'd caught three or four, but I think that place is kind of wasted.

"It got slower on me. It was either because of (the difference in) the day and the current, or I'm running out of fish."

He managed just eight keepers, the biggest of which was close to 4 pounds. The only bite he lost was the first one of the day.

"It wrapped me up in a log and I couldn't feel the fish, so I ended up breaking my line and then it jumped three times. That one would've helped me another half or three-quarters of a pound.

"It seemed like the current was pushing a lot harder today – I lost a dozen jigs. You've got the eddy current and the regular river current, and the eddy was really pushing."

Paul, Wanted to drop you a line and again thank you for the great time Lance and I had. The time spent with you on the electronics was amazing,but the real deal was when we put that knowledge and applied it out on the water on Friday.We guessed our best 5 would of been in the 42 lb range, with both of us catching our personal best fish of our lifes.We had 2 over 10 and 1 around 9 from your lake. We are getting ready to start into the Everstart series this year and your class will definitely help us out.

Thanks again, Frank

Just a quick email to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to Pachuta. As an avid angler I found In-Depth Fishing to be a master's level course in the sport of bass fishing.  I learned a great deal and it was fun to apply the lessons while catching lunker bass (see photos).  Lake Eddins is an extraordinary fishery!
