      I think it might have turned over Thad.. the water clarity was pretty poor on Tuesday, seems to have started to clear up a little.
    12. do you think the lake turned? I was struggling last week.

    1. Have to slow way down!!! Get on that Fall crawfish pattern,need all the protein they can get now, storing up for winterπŸ€”

      Okay, when Rick's not catchin them, I know it's rough. I don't feel too bad for skunking this past weekend, now.
    3. Jim Leise 0
      I've taken a few days off, I'll be hitting them tomorrow, hopefully have something worth posting.

      You can tell "Fall Transition" is in effect when the bite gets tough and your face starts sprouting hair! πŸ˜‚ Hang in there Rick, feeding frenzy is right ...more around the corner. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Bryan, heading back out tomorrow.🀞
    6. Better than being skunked! I fished yesterday under ideal conditions but only caught three ranging from 1 1/4 to 2 1/2 lbs.Hopefully the fall bite will pick up? ...more πŸŽ£πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

      When I was there this past weekend, lots of fish were feeding like crazy in the pads and thick stuff, but I couldn't get many of them to bite. I'm gonna ...more try again this weekend if moving stuff doesn't work though.
    10. Rick S 0
      Drew, didn't fish any of the shallow areas that you fish.. maybe they are all buried in the pads??
    11. Rick S 0
      Thanks Chad, I was just glad to not get skunked, this little guy saved the day.
