Super windy warm day for mid November. Took a gentleman out this afternoon and we caught several bass no monsters but some real quality fish. The fish were holding above brush and would hit a square bill crankbait and a jerkbait.   Good time for sure anytime you can go out in a boat in November and not have to wear a heavy coat . Thanks for the beautiful day.

At 7am the temp outside was 74. A cold front blew through and the weather is now raining and 43. Needless to say I thought before the front blew in I thought we would of nailed them. Nope never landed a fish. The wind changed directions and the cold filtered in and the bite was gone. I guess I was in the wrong place when it all happened as just as the front blew in they should of went nuts.NOPE didn't happen fished just a little while and headed in to sit by the fire.

Found the fish today and smacked them pretty good..I fished several different spots that looked the same and caught them in every one of them. Had several bigger fish but a dead camera. Had a great day fished shallow creeks and caught them on a spinnerbait...

The  fish bit better today than the past few days.  The mile high blue skies are hard on the fishing business but are more welcome than a a all day rain storm.  The fish are still chasing shad balls and are more towards the middle of the short coves in open water. Some are catching fish on a buzz baits and square bills.The spinnerbait and the whopper plopper are working best for me.


Good Fishin

 Caught a few today on a Jerk Bait and a Wopper Plopper today.  Found fish chasing shad but could not get them to bite. We caught fish off of wave breaks and dock corners that had wind blowing in on them.  Fishing was S L O W and i am looking forward to the fall feed it has to happen anyday.

With the water temp still in the upper 60s the bass are chasing bait fish and hanging with the bait balls. The fish are packed full of bait fish so faking one out can sometimes be a problem.  A Zara Spook a Whopper Plopper or a Pop R will get you bit. Problem is more than often it will be a dink. Numbers are not a problem bigger fish issue but fun to catch.  Fished that pattern yesterday evening and caught at least thirty bass but only had two bass that we landed over fifteen inches. Key word landed as both myself and my partner both lost good fish last night.

Right now early and late is the best time to catch but anytime is a good time to go fishing.

Had a sow evening last night until just about dark. We caught several short bass and a couple of keepers but then got into some Hybrids just at dark.. i really think we were late to the spot where they were chasing shad so going a little earlier tonight.  Catching fish on a Whopper Plopper and a Sammy . The fish are chasing shad in the backs of coves.

Caught several bass on a SqBill today.. We found the fish in the back of a windy cove that was loaded with shad.  We fished a little creak ditch and the bass seemed to like being just a little deeper.Most of the water was less than two feet but the fish were coming biting in the ditch which was around four feet deep.   All of you guys that read this it was not the golf course hole...The lake is down and there is not enough water back their to cover their backs. 

Everyone have a great day and good fishing!
