I haven't been out fishing for a couple of weeks due to a monster case of poison ivy. Weather hasn't been the greatest anyway. I finally got out this weekend, went to my good fishing hole, and was trying out Secret 7 dip bait that I ordered from Team Catfish along with the favorite Sonny's dip bait. I caught one fish, 16", on the Secret 7, but it was a funny color. I can't tell you what color it was because I am color-blind, I just know it didn't look normal. It was also very very fat. I fished for 2 more hours in the morning without even a bite, and went out to another good spot in the evening for 2 full hours more without a bite on either bait, not normal for that lake. The fish was as full of eggs as I have ever seen a fish before when I cleaned it, about to burst. The stomach was pretty empty, and there were so many eggs that there wasn't much room in the gut cavity for anything else. I believe my fishing was slowed by the spawn at Sessions Lake, which I believe is going on now. I need to read up on the spawn and how it effects the fishing (other than the slow bite), and how long it lasts.
