Fished the shallow water pattern this morning with little success. we did catch a couple of good ones but the shallow bite just was not there. We then fished the deeper docks that have been real good as late and the fish bit but they were small. all in all the fishing was slow for the weather conditions. Fished a drop shot and caught a few but not as usual.. The shad were scattered and I think that was some of the issue.

Been catching numbers but not lots of big fish. The fish are in a changing mode and are here one day and gone the next.. Lots of bait fish everywhere so the food source is great.. They can have a mouth full just about anytime they want. Once in a while you will catch a good one but it is not easy to do.. 

The big bass bash is this weekend and the biggest bass will be just a little over 7 I say.. Whoever catches that one will earn a Seventy Thousand Dollars. That's a bunch of pocket change..

I say fish a big tandom leaf spinnerbait or a Sq bill shallow and just cover lots of water.....

Another good day on the lake.. The fish are chasing shad on the big docks if there is wind or windy points. You can catch them on a Whopper plopper ,Sq bill or spinnerbait.

Caught a bunch of dinks and some nice ones this evening...Caught them on a whopper plopper, Drop shot and a ten inch worm.. Had a terrible morning bite but the evening bite seemed to have made up for it. Fished with a nice guy Jeff from northern Illinois he made life good for me.   Thanks We didn't catch any Molly's but at least 30 bass with several keepers mixed in.. Always a good time catching fish chasing shad on a drop shot....

Went out this morning for a little while and caught several bass on a Sq Bill crankbait. We are fishing in the shallow flats and moving the lure at a real fast pace. I got broke off on a big fish that was laying in a ditch on a flat. Went out to try fishing the ledges but the fish were there but refusing to eat.  It is going to be a hot one here at the lake today. Hope to get out this evening and see if the bite is better. It hasn't been  the past few days..

Caught them pretty good tonight. No whoppers but lots of fish. They are chasing shad and will hit a Sq Bill pretty good. Look for the bait balls and the bass will be somewhere close.   Good Fishing

Tough day on the pond today.. Finally the lake is back to normal but the fish are shell shocked from the weekend. We caught some shorts but could not find a good one.. We fished about twenty different spots today and just could not locate them.  Caught fish today on a wopper plopper,crankbait ,worm and a drop shot. Just could not get any of any size to bite.

 My clients caught some topwater fish today early. They were fishing wopper plopper in he backs of some of the coves. Wendy caught her first ever bass and it was a real nice Kentucky.  Wendy was quite the caster with just a few minutes of coaching.

Caught some fish early on a top water and then they quit on us.  That was it not a bite after. I have no idea why but the bite just stopped . we tried crankbaits, worms and even a drop shot with no success.   Hope to go this evening to try to catch them,
