Starting to catch fish ganging up at the mouths of major creeks. It is starting to move toward a fall pattern. Today caught these on 8XD in 15 to 20 ft. mostly near ...more dropoffs into creek channels.
Duane, any time we get a thunderstorm over the lake it drops the temps a few degrees and the fishing picks up. Right now the temp is running 86-90 depnds on where ...more you are fishing. I did catch quite a few yesterday on crankbaits and the water temp was down to around 86 on the south end. I would start shallow up the Ayish arm and if nothing is going on go out and crank the points and creek bends. you can watch your electronics and you can usually find some shad pods and the bass will be around. C-rigs are also working in the same areas, anywhere from 12 to 25 foot deep. Just keep an eye out for schooling fish out on the points also early and late.
I had a client that didn't want to use live bait. Had 3 shiners left in the well from the day before. Early the first morning,I took a 12" shiner out of ...more the well and asked him if he would just humor me for a few minutes. 5 minutes later he caught his first double digit a 10-9, next shiner caught a 9-3 he missed the third bass which was close to 11. Next 2 days he insisted on having 8 to 10 dozen shiners. Forgot all about his swim jigs:)
It is very clear down here too. You can see down about 7-8 feet which is really clear for us. If it doesn't rain much it will stay clear until winter. It is ...more hard to drive 30 miles when I live five min from the ramp.
Lol hey I love the Mill Creek area! We fish the north into more because that’s where my husbands family has their house. It has been different though in that ...more the water is really clear right now which is very unusual for that and leg and the school fish for catching are much bigger than I’ve seen in the 25 years I’ve been going up there. Night fishing in the creeks of Hanks was incredible. No my husband said he always used to be that way so here’s hoping But I’m not holding my breath LOL
I've thrown so many square bill over rocks I've now got a collection of lipless baits. Jim suggested live baits and he is spot on. Bait shops cant keep enough ...more shiners in stock. I'm old school or stupid. I dont use live baits. Another month of this bite and I might be adding rod holders! I already have 2 livewell. Just need circle hooks. Nice bass!
It is nice down here when the weather permits. It gets rough pretty quick. I thought it might be getting muddy up north with the rain we have been getting. I have ...more been fishing deep drops when I can get out on the main lake.
sorry to get back so late on the water up north is muddy or not...my phone is about had it...I went up north today...don't go for now..its muddy as ever.. we ...more didn't catch a fish at all in the river.. was lucky enough to pull 9 keepers today on the main lakes edge with blue and black sinkos
Thanks Kenneth! Robert the yellow magic is a popper not a Whopper plopper, they have been turning up there nose at the Whopper plopper. They have been wanting something ...more worked slow and not so much noise. Sometimes these bass will make you scratch your head.
since i've discovered the performance gear like the head/neck cover you're wearing the heat doesn't slow me down at all! make sure you've drank ...more enough water and have cool water with you and something with electrolytes and dunk that performance gear in the water, ring it out, put it back on...instant air conditioning!
All my fishing friends, be careful out there if you are flipping in the bushes. This guy almost paid me a visit. I was looking down where I was flipping my creature ...more bait and this guy was about two feet from me. My son noticed it just in the nick of time.
