    either "frontitis" or another depth change

    the moon would not have anything to do with the depth, but sometimes with really clear water, the moon will allow the bass to feed more out in the channel and not get anywhere near the bottom. many times with clear water, the fishing is actually better with no moon. i know the moon just makes it nicer to be out, but not really improve the fishing. last year, the moon really was an asset because we had a lot of water color all year. bo

    Am I the only one?

    did absolutely horrible Saturday morning, put in at CC. water was very dirty only about 1ft visibility. I guess the winds really churned that water. only had 2 short LM on a jig and lost two more. any bites we did get were very quick, just hit it and drop it never really hung on to the bait. if you really wanted to you could have made a day out of following the Whites around waiting for them to bust the schools. I did manage to get my spook in one of the burst and catch one white. also caught 2 Flatheads on a jig. not much boat traffic. put in at 6am was the second boat and when we left there were 4 trucks in the lot. hope it gets better soon or I am going to be forced to go to Table Rock.

    My brother and nephew caught these over the weekend and I have no clue what they are, so I'm calling on the collective wisdom of the group. Caught at a pond in KC (Kansas). What do you all think?

    Thanks for the report. How would you expect the upcoming full moon to effect the depth or the bite? Bobby

    If you need a twin for that hammock let me know. I have one that I may be able to let go of, cheap.

    Let Me tell you a Fish Story

    This is the jig I caught the Brown with.
  11. went last night and bites were more scattered and deeper. could have been because of the front and north wind or another depth change. everything on the electronics was visibly a bit deeper and what we caught, all the bites were pretty darn close to 30 ft. or even a taste past that. we still ended up with 10 keepers which is not a bad trip. just not one of those killers when it seems to be stupid easy. we did have a couple of nice largemouth in the mix too. bo

    Walleye Bsits

    I have been having a tough time. Two weeks ago I had two keepers in the bit right at dusk, and I caught several other decent fish. I went last night and caught one crappie about the size of my hand. No walleyes. Same areas, same presentation, which is crank baits. I'm am going to rig up some bouncers and slow death rigs, and try it this week.

    May well have known them and checked them previously, or no fishing gear etc.

    The garden has done well. I just took inventory. So far I've put up 36 pints of pickles of various description, 20 pints of salsa and 10 quarts of plain canned tomatoes. There are 5 gallon bags of corn on the cob in the freezer. And it all just keeps coming. Two more big rows of corn that is tasseling now, spaghetti squash everywhere and no shortage of green beans. The tomato avalanche is in full swing.

    saw one working Shoal Creek Saturday, he pulled in just as a canoe landed and went straight to the canoe, talked and straight away left; almost like it was arranged, never checked anyone else..

    Awesome Topwater Day 7/21

    Any kind of small point in a pocket seems to hold fish right now. It's weird too, if you try one pocket and don't get bit, go on to the next one and they'll be in there. They're spitting up crawdad claws and really chasing small bluegills. I'd say that a gill colored squarebill or shallow scatter rap would work too. I almost tried that yesterday.

    You wouldn't believe me without seeing it. I start on main lake points and have been catching them both deep (20-25ft) and shallow enough in the pockets that you can see some of them. They're relating to rock and bushes like crazy early in the mornings still. I can't make myself not flip a bush or a stickup in the water. Every crankbait fish is on a point though.

    Dwayne beat me to it. Me and Gary Flipping watched a gang of browns coral a bunch of stockers against the bank on the White one time. They would take turns charging into the rainbows and eating them. Some of the rainbows jumped out of the water onto the bank to escape the marauders.

    Because the browns I’m catching are regurgitating rainbow trouts instead of forage fish and I will be imitating 5-7 in rainbow trout

    The only reason we have got top water our last 2 outings is because we saw them up busting shad. If we haven't seen them up we never catch anything on top. Was the jig bite in deeper water out on points? Most anything we have caughtt recently has been mainly around mud, I assume because its not as hot as the rock.

    Epic Trip!

    Went down yesterday with Buzz on the Elk and we did a little fishing. Fishing was on FIRE! Last two times I have been out no matter where I have been the fishing hasn't been that great, but boy howdy that all changed yesterday morning. We no longer than got into the water and Buzz had the first one on of the day. Like his first or second cast and a nice smallie came to hand. My first one came a couple minutes later and it was a nice chunky 15" smallie. I think we were no longer out than 50 yards from where we launched and we caught over a dozen smallies in the first 30 minutes! We stayed for a couple of hours and then the bite just shut down. We hit a stretch that we didn't even cover maybe a mile? All in all within 2 hours we had caught over 30 smallies between us and only one dink that was under 12". For the most part half of the smallies we caught were in the 15" range. Buzz ended up with the biggest one at 17" and my biggest was 16". It was just one of those days were everything went just as planned and the fish were feeding like crazy on topwater. Caught pretty much the majority of fish on the Whopper.

    Awesome Topwater Day 7/21

    I've been on them pretty good down there for a few weeks. Went again yesterday for only about 3 1/2 hours and had 16. About half were keepers. I've not seen hardly any topwater action happening all year. Everything busting are super small whites, gar, or carp. I've been catching them all on jigs, a jackhammer chatterbait, and yesterday caught 2 on a 6XD. That jig bite has been pretty good for a month or so and it's hard to speed up and cover more water when they're eating it.

    Right place for now anyway. The river run side across the lake has better parking and the ramp isn't as steep. It doesn't have a courtesy dock and is closed right now due to the bridge construction. How did you do out of KDock?
