Went out for just a little while today and then the rain came.  well it never did rain hard it rained enough that the mid 40s made it uncomfortable fishing close to my home base made it real nice to go sit by the fire. I did catch a couple of fish on a jerk bait but they were not big but fun to catch. The water is pretty clear and in the upper 40s but the best fishing is just around the corner.

Caught several bass this afternoon on a Jerk Bait. Yes of course it was a custom painted Big Ed special and the fish loved it.  The water is looking good with about 4 feet of visibility, A front was moving in and I took my neighbor out for a couple of hours this afternoon. I fished the cove I live in so we fished some shallow flats and some protected areas because of the wind that we had.   Good day for me as I had back surgery again a few weeks ago and I haven't been able to fish. The weather looks like it is going to get in the upper 50s this week later so I guess I will get some more on the water therapy.

Beautiful lake conditions here at the lake however the fishing has been tough. Reports that i am getting that the bass are shallow and feed if you throw it in their mouths. The big gizzard shad are up shallow and that usually causes the fish to go nuts on a Buzzbait but that does not seem to be working this year yet. The best bait is flipping a small brown jig and craw along sides of docks if there is no wind.If you have some wind then then run to the backs of the feeder creeks and fish the shallows with a spinnerbait or a squarebill.    The crappie have been biting pretty good but you have to find them but once you do it is well worth it.

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
