Default 18 August 2006 at Lake Monroe IN

Great day for wiper fishing. Skies were overcast and the surrounding hills were blue/gray. At times the lake was like glass, but sometimes a wind would kick up and mottle the surface. Chance of rain was 40%. The rain never presented itself, at least not while The Atheist and I were on the water. We headed home just after sunset.

The wipers were shy prospects for the afternoon, but they did take up the bite once the sun started its descent. We anchored in about six feet of water on the fast side and caught about a dozen or more fish each. Unfortunately, there was not any great size to them. I got about six that were under two pounds; the other six weighed between 4.5 and 7.8 pounds.

The Atheist was not as fortunate, but he could see that I was onto fish, so he watched what I was doing, then tried to repeat it. It worked for him, too. As the sun set, he boated a 5 lb 11 oz fish using a light pole and 6# test line. What a party!
