September 19th Fishing Report
The bite last week was a little tougher than its been. We still had good catches but really had to work at it. Strong east winds made it tough to get around and fishing multiple spots was sometimes impossible. Most of our luck was drifting gold spinners. Crawlers were our main bait of choice, but there was one or two days where minnows outperformed crawlers. We caught some fish jigging, but catch rates are higher and fish are bigger with spinners. The jig bite should turn on day by day. We caught a lot of other species when we fished over rocks… crappies and perch, but also some bass in the mix. Our best success has been on rock transitions near humps and islands. Fish are showing up in their normal fall haunts and are vacating the mud spots where we caught them all summer.
August 1 Fishing Report
The fishing continues to hold strong with lots of limits taken. A lot of fish are moving out into the mud, but populations worth targeting remain on shallow bars and rock piles. Long story short… fish are everywhere and are biting. Bring both shiners and leeches if you’re planning on jigging as they change preference day by day. Crawler harnesses are always a go-to as well, with gold, red, and fire tiger being the hot colors. The fish are located 15 feet to 38 feet, but good numbers are on rock piles in 13-20 feet. Water levels continue to drop, and now is as good time as any to catch a trophy.
July 5th Fishing Report
It’s been a great week of fishing leading up to Independence Day…
Our guides have been targeting areas on the North side of the lake. Flats and sand bars continued to produce fish this week with the majority of our fishing taking place in 12-18ft of water. Deeper mud areas are also producing fish as water temps warm and bug hatches begin. Drifting spinners tipped with crawlers or leeches has been the choice tactic. A hammered gold spinner is hard to beat! Other good color options include Firetiger, gold/red and white/red. The bite remained hot this week with lots of limits being brought back to our docks and many slot fish being released.
The forecast for the upcoming week looks great! We expect most days to have highs in the mid to upper 70s. With another week of stable weather forecasted we expect the exceptional fishing to continue!
