Heading out tomorrow for the first time since spring. Usually catch numbers here, but no real size which is fine with me sometimes. How have things been? Still slow?
Went out on Browns Lake a few weeks ago for the first time. All soft plastics for the bass bite. Hoping the fall bite turns them on there!

This report is from July 31. Me and my friend Virgil, had a good 5 hours on the lake. Caught several small gills, but finally found some nice size. Caught 10 bass, one being 18 inch long..All swimming. Fun Day
While it seems there are fewer boats on the lake there are a few consistently bad apples (who live on the lake) that after 10 AM feel it is THEIR lake alone. This goes on well past sunset if the police boats have left the lake. There seems to be an overall lack of courtesy towards fishing boats which has been going on for a while. Maybe there's a place to report these issues? All the boats have tags...
Went out last night starting at about 5:00. Boy was that a mistake. I had multiple water skiers pass by me so close I could have easily thrown a rock at them. The courtesy on this lake is non-existent. I wanted to hit a couple of the deeper holes, but had boats pass wide open between me and the shore. Had to head inside the no-wake buoys to feel safe. We wanted to fish after things calmed down and we did manage about 8 bass between 10-14". However, things never calmed down until after sunset. People were actually still skiing when it was almost dark. Water temp 89 degrees.
Caught my second smallmouth of the year. I knew there were some in there, but am wondering with the water clarity getting so much better, if they aren't becoming more prevalent. I was going to show a pic, but whenever I try to post a pic, I upload it, my preview looks good, but when I hit post, some random pic shows up.
Was just there a few days ago and left my fishing pole behind. It's a lews carbon fire speed stick with a lews smach mach baitcaster reel. Also had a white cat fishing pole with it. If someone has it or knows of someone that has it I would be greatly appreciate it back.

Slow day I fished from 10:30 AM to 4 PM. Only a few flags small northern and 1 LM and no gills. Nice day though.
