Froggy and Foggy morning breakdown

12:03 pm EDT, Oct 17, 2013 | By Craig Lamb

It's turned out to be a foggy morning on Ross Barnett Reservoir.

 

Ross Barnett Reservoir is blanketed in a coat of fog. Not enough to be dangerous but there's a mist coming down on the lake. The forecast is for a slow moving front to pass through the area. Slow is also the word of the day for the fishing. It's S-L-O-W.

 

In riding along with photographer James Overstreet, we encountered most anglers fishing in the massive beds of lily pads on the lower lake; some 20 boats in one spot alone. No surprise what the anglers are throwing: frogs. The anglers not fishing the frogs-and-pads pattern are fishing riprap shorelines. So there's a combination of power fishing and finessing with frogs going on.
