Managed to get out for a couple of hours this morning. Caught and released (2) largemouth bass, the largest was 2-1/2 lbs the other was a dink. Lost two other largemouth  when they jumped and came unbuttoned. 

The mosquito's had far more bites than I did - they were horrible even when using bug spray.

Decided to make one more trip to Red Oak Point after two very good days of fishing. I could tell as soon as I got there that the conditions had changed, the water was clearer but warmer, the bait fish had left taking the bass with them. 

I didn't catch a thing, not one strike . . . 

Moved location to below the dam, managed to catch & release (3) largemouth and (1) striper - all between 1-2 lbs. Lost a larger bass after it jumped and threw my lure back at me. The bass were feeding in the minnows coming over the spillway.

Decided to return to Red Oak Point today to see if the bass were still coming shallow and feeding off of the small shad.

I caught (6) largemouth bass, all 12-15 inches long and full of spunk. I also added (1) 14" walleye to the mix - overall two excellent days on Pierce Lake.

Fished from 1:30 to 4:00 pm, caught and released (7) largemouth bass around Red Oak Point. They were all 12 - 15 inches in length and caught on a shad colored rattle trap.

The largemouth are finally coming into the swallows to feed and fatten up before the November winds arrive.

Fished Red Oak Point for a while this afternoon, picked up two large mouth 12-14 inches on a rattle trap. Didn't get any other action so moved on to the dam.

Fished below the spillway, fin hooked a 3 lb catfish which was landed and promptly released to bite another day.

Hooked into a very nice musky - he was stripping line out like crazy, came out of the water on me and headed for the creek. Unfortunately I couldn't turn or hold him and he came unbuttoned - so much fun. 

You never know what lurks below the dam . . .

Went out this afternoon for a couple hours. The bass didn't cooperate, at any location or any combination of lures or lure presentation.

Decided to go to the dam, with the water high and a steady flow over the spillway I figured that there may be some fish below. I was casting a rattle trap and managed to pickup a 40" musky (around 15-19 lbs) on the third or forth cast.

So much fun, I can understand the reason for some fisherman that is the fish of choice. Released back into the water and headed down stream - all I can say is thank you!
