Lke Monroe, Indiana, 1 September 2006
It was overcast when we put in on the fast side, but not much wind. Large and sometimes dark clouds coasted lazily overhead. We (The Atheist and I) anchored in about five feet of water and started casting Slab Spoons. Nothing seemed to be biting and within an hour a strong wind kicked up, coming at us from the northeast. With it came waves, some as big a two-and-a-half to three feet, and whitecaps. It was a real task just keeping afloat. Some wipers hit, mostly on chartreuse colors, but not any of the larger ones. We caught five or six fish, sporatically, but nothing over two pounds. Stayed until dark, gave it a good try, but nothing seemed to be on the bite. In fact, I believe at about 6:30 p.m. it was just us and a CO on the entire lake. Needless to say, we got checked. When we put ashore about dark, ours was the last truck in the parking lot, but the weekend campers and boaters were starting to file in.
