Launched Sunday around 9ish and fished the rental area with no luck then drifted down towards the bottom coves. Past the rentals i was slowly making my making my way when south when I saw a boater a few hundred yards away coming my way. I stopped to make a few fan casts with my popper then next thing i know they were fishing right next to me then a few feet in back of me. I almost came in contact with them when i had to avoid some bank anglers line. no idea why they had to get that close. but rather than saying anything i just moved off that spot then few casts later i catch a bass and made sure they saw it.
Other than that i had a few more on the popper, nothing too big but im making this post because when i was packing up i bumped into a elderly couple that was packing up as well. i asked how they did and the guy was like, i didnt catch anything good but my wife caught a 8. I was like a catfish? then she whips out her phone and shows me a monster bass. not sure it was an 8, i wouldnt know but its safe to say it was 6+ easy. She said she went up the typical route up towards the bridge just throwing a jig in some brush.
