Been fishing lots and posting not. The fish early in the day are chasing shad in the back of the coves in skinny water. They have been biting topwater pretty good early before the sun gets above the trees. Once that happens move to the main lake and fish a worm on the main lake points.  The past few days have been fun with the married couples. Some days we nailed them other days we didn't.But we still had fun that's what counts.  

Good Fishing

Took the one and only Ken Taylor out fishing last night. Ken does The Outdoor Guy radio show every Friday afternoon at 3 to 4PM CST on ESPN Radio in KC MO or nationally Saturdays at 9 AM CST on Sports Byline USA. It is always a good time fishing with Ken. We caught bass on main lake points on a big worm in about 20 feet of water. We found a bunch of fish on a main lake point. They were eager to bite but not willing to commit.One hit wonders is what I call them. We did scratch out some nice fish but no monsters. The water temp is in the low 90s the thermocline is setting up around 30 feet in some areas so the fish are spending more time in the hotter water causing them to stress out. Please be careful and practice catch and quickly release.

Had a fishing trip last evening with Robert and Mike from St. Louis Missouri. Both of the guys had really never fished a Texas rigged worm and had a hard time setting the hook in the 20 plus feet of water. They had plenty of bites but the hook up rate was tough. It was a weird night as the fish would hit the worm and then gone. They simply would not stay with it. Big worms and main lake points are the ticket to success right now. With the water temp in the low 90s the fish are taking a beating. I really believe that all tournament fishing should be suspended until the water temp gets into at least down to the mid 80s.

With the air temp in the upper 90s and the water temp 90 degrees. It is hard to fish let alone get the fish to eat. Two days ago we slapped them real good . We could catch them on every point we fished. Last night we struggled to catch a bass over two pounds. We fished the same bait the same way except last night we had a east wind.I know that the old wise tale the fish bite the least when the wind is from the east. We fished the same type of structure both nights with the same baits.  GO FIGURE.

Posted are a couple of fish that were from the two night ago trip. Good Fishing

Put a smack down on those Bass again last night. The fish were once again eager to eat a worm. Really didn't make a difference in color. It was putting it in the right place a wiggling it just right. (that sounds bad) You had to hit the ledge on the sweet spot and then shake your rod a little and then let it fall off. Smack it they would. Caught at least 25 to 30 in just a few hours. Good time for sure .


Happy Forth of July ! Thanks to all who are serving and those that have served

Just got in from a evening trip. The fish were biting from the time we went out 7: 00 until we came in. Forgot the bug stuff and you can only slap yourself so many times.  The fish were eager to hit a big Texas rigged worm in and around brush piles. Good time for sure

First cool day we have had in a long time.Thank god for that!! Went fishing and caught fish flipping boat docks with a worm. The fishing was not bad the catching part was not real good. We had lots of one hit wonders( one hit wonder is a bite then there is nothing there.Makes you wonder what it was) We did catch several nice fish but it was just a joy being out there on such a nice day.  Top water early deeper as the day goes on is the only thing that is working for me.

 Off today I got jobs to do but I think I will sneak out for a little fun fishing.
