An afternoon flurry has begun

Co-angler, David Deciucis from Chester, Virginia, has had a strong day leading up to his afternoon flurry. With bites coming fairly often, he seems to be picking through the small spotted bass to eventually get the bigger bites. His current bag sits at three fish for around eight pounds with his biggest fish being a spotted bass.

“The spots have been schooling and chasing all day long, with flurries turning on here and there and the afternoon bite seems to be picking up," Deciucis said. 

Deciucis is doing a lot of bait switching. Interchanging between topwater, swim baits, and jigs for whatever will fire the school up at that moment. He is continuing to look for the random big bites in hopes to keep upgrading. Regardless of the outcome, he claims it’s better than being at work.

Boater, Trevor McKinney, has not been able to lock on to the same pattern thus far. After losing one good fish on the side of the boat, he currently has a bag of around five pounds with three fish. McKinney also continues to strive for upgrades as the day comes towards a close. 

“When it’s not your day, it’s just not your day," McKinney said.
