FISHING REPORT
7/29/14 8:35 AM CST
Daybreak yesterday, once again found me on the water. I had to try my new sonar unit. Hit a mid-lake bar and caught 19 big white bass and about 3 times as many smallmouths. Fish were hitting in 30-40 feet of water but in the top 10 feet. The biggest smallmouth was about 3-3 1/2 pounds, nothing big. Kahlins Slim 3" in rainbow or Tenn. shad were very effective.

This is a late report from last weekend.

You definitely don't need a guide for this lake. Just a boat, an anchor, a little reading, and a brain. Spent three nights on Green lake from Last Friday tell Monday. First day, evening no boat, results were as you might expect. A few little perch, a large bullhead a big channel Cat, and a huge small mouth that broke me of at the doc. At that point the biggest of my life.

Saturday we rented a john boat with small outboard and an anchor, that's all we needed. Now we started figuring things out. Leeches, minnow, and cranks in 20-30'. Slip bobbers soon became the obvious option, and even sooner leeches the bait of choice. There much be 10's of thousands of little 5-6" perch in this lake, they were pretty annoying, other than that we started nailing small mouth many just under 14" and many just over, and two that were over 18" all sent back for next time.

Sunday we did not have to spend any time figuring anything out. Went right back to what worked the day before and it worked even better. 20-30', Leeches under slips, fast and furious. Friend was broken off right at the boat by a monster smallmouth, shortly after I watch what looked like and NFL sized football X 2 rocket out of the water after a short fight and throw the hook. All the while we are catching Dozens at and right above 14". I get into another monster and again get broken off because of a bad net job. Next one was the biggest or at least as big as the first one that broke off and as big or bigger then the one from Friday evening. This one came in the boat, and came home with us. Tasted pretty good on the grill. Also caught a few huge blue gill, those came home as well

Best small mouth fishing I have experienced both in terms of Quality and quantity. Cheers to those that have posted in the past, giving others the chance to not go out there totally lost.

Excuse the drunken mess picture. It was a bachelor party weekend after all.

Finally figured something out, rocky gravel cut by shore. (Worked last year too) wacky senko and not green. Who knew. 26 smb in 2 hours. 9:30 to 11:30. Slept in too. Not huge, big fish was 2.5# with a couple close to 2#. But smallies fight like hell so all felt 1 or 2 lbs bigger. My son caught most of these fish. All on 4# test line pictures will come.

Better consistency today with several doubles. Threw wacky senko's in the rock rubble cuts close to shore. Caught 15 or 20 smb from 1lb through several 2+# Hooks pulled on 3 fish much larger. Normally we land these but today was not the big fish day.

FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Sunny
Was on the water as it was getting light and was done fishing by 9:00 am. Headed toward my first stop and as I approached I saw seagulls diving and surface activity. I grabbed my pole and was hot and heavy into white bass and smallmouths. I was not prepared for the on slot. Two big white bass or smallmouths at a time. Several times I was broke off. You can control the tension to the 3 way but when 2 big white bass go opposite directions something is going to give. Should have had 8 lb. test leads, not 6. From sunup to about 6;30 it was nonstop action. with a school that was about the size of half a football field. The school was feeding on 3" long lake shiners. Any jig that remotely looked like one was attacked! Then it died like a switch was turned off. I caught a few smallmouths after that but the frenzy was over. Fished a few other spots and only smallies. The main action was in 30 feet off the side of a bar but at the surface. Look for the gulls.

I went for a leisure cruise around the lake, starting on the West End. I dragged some dodgers and flies around and only found lookers. And lots of them. I picked up and went to Sand Stone. I found the fish were a bit more accommodating when I dangled the Blue Clown Spoons past them. They were no wall hangers, but a lake trout is a lake trout. Next week I will go back and see if I can find the bigger ones that I marked.
