  1. 1/4 oz kastmaster, color does not matter a great deal they are chasing the flash which mimics a shad. but, I was using the gold colored and silver kastmaster.
  2. anchored (stern) 12' fow wind from se, sun hitting left side of face 20 fow - 12 fow in front of me downwind 20 fow - 12 fow port 12 fow - 50 fow starboard 12 fow - 6 fow aft shoal coming up from my right, anticipated fish would be feeding on wind pushed shad coming from the se indeed they were, most fish caught 15 degrees starboard to 90 degrees port cast spoon count to 6 (2' per second of drop) start retrieving. let it drop, pick up, in 2', let it drop, repeat several fish hit upon the original cast drop all setup very very deliberate only had to anchor in one time for a hang up, then right exactly back to original location. anchored within 10' of night before they will be there again tonight, unfortunately i have another commitment PS - saw many gar spawning/ feeding in the general area
  3. Yes it is that time again. The bass started consolidating just before the rains. Had 1 great night then. Then the rains messed it up. Wednesday this week was fabulous. 1 just over 18". 1 at 17", and lots at keeper or under. All in less than 2 hrs. 14 - 18 fish. All black bass. Thursday was phenomenal. Largest at 17", numerous 14" to 16". Over 25 fish between 6:15 - 7:45. Had 6 consecutive fish in 6 casts. Same area as the night before. Great visuals on the graph. Very heavy schooling. One smallie @ 17". One white. All the rest blacks bass. Could have gone longer, but had enough. Everyone on a spoon. On the bottom with a very slow retrieval. Feeding heavily on shad. Find shad, find fish. This will stay like this for 4 - 8 weeks, and then the summer doldrums. This is what fishing is all about.
  4. Hard to tell. This lake varies 2-3 degrees depending on where you are and time of day.
  5. Last night after the rain. 1@20, 2@16, 5@15, numerous under 15. 12+ whites. All on a spoon. <2 hrs of fishing. No idea about tomorrow.
  6. You were right on with finding the fish. They were obviously "inactive". Had they been "actively" feeding you would have had a blast. I have personally experienced what you describe very often. When I vertically jig a spoon it is usually a slow up and drop at its own speed. Usually about a foot or less.
  7. Decided to go fishing yesterday. Was at the dock at 1:30. Lake was mostly calm. As soon as I arrived I noticed activity on the surface. Shad popping through. Birds actively feeding on shad. And a few swirls. My thoughts were, Hmmm this is a good sign. Headed to one of my frequently visited GPS locations. Caught 4 in the first 15 minutes. Then 2 more in the next 20 minutes. Released them all safely, but did have one bleeder. 2 in the keeper size. Then the sun broke through the cloud cover. Breeze picked up. That location went completely dead. Not sure if the bleeder or the sun turned them off. So off to the next GPS location. If the sun was the issue then the next location would be dead also. Caught 9 in the next 1.5 hrs. One was like i have never seen before. It had dark black blotches across its body. Looked like one of those south american bass. Unique coloring but healthy looking large mouth at 16". 3 of the 9 were in the keeper class. All fish caught on a spoon. Headed in at approx. 3:30. It was simply a nice fishing day. So they are still actively feeding. Dont know how much longer it will last. Till next time.

  9. Not past point 15.  

  10. Went out Monday 11/21. Tried one area and caught 1 bass in about 45 minutes. Went to another favorite spot and caught 6 with 3 keepers in less than an hour. So, same story. Find them on sonar, anchor, and cast away with a spoon. I wasn't sure what I would find now that the weather has changed. All on a spoon. Water temp. 59 degrees. Interestingly no whites. Obviously, they are still feeding and getting ready for winter. Till next time.
  11. Went out yesterday (Sunday) for 1.5hrs. I was curious if the bass were still in fall mode. Only tried one area, but they were all over the sonar. Ended up with 8 bass and 2 keepers. But the white were even more active. 10 whites with 8 sows. A good day. All safely returned. Till next time
  12. I'm always amazed how quickly fishing can go from good to bad, or vice versa. When I see those sonar readings I keep looking. Usually one can find the fish, but the bite will be slow.
  13. You apparently don't read the posts throughly. I explained I don't catch fish in the summer. I pointed you back to my Dec. post. I have received dozens of compliments on my posts, and several inquiries. I'm sure the guides have good days. Don't speak for them. I will continue to report results and help people who are learning. Too many people think they are some sort of great guru of accuracy. Some people ask for pics auspiciously to determine where the fish were caught. I have no idea what your motives are. Try to help people who appreciate learning. Try sharing, it's is fulfilling. And please, don't read my posts. I will no longer respond to your inquiries. Last check you were 1 of 1800 of hits on my last post.
  14. nice report, and pics. Thanks
  15. Was out for 2 hrs. this morning. Caught 1 LM, he was legal. Spotted the schools but they were small schools. Simply weren't taking. PM always is better for me than AM. Good work, thats a respectable trip.
