Table Rock Lake Fishing Report Dam Area 5-13-11

Recommended Posts

Bill is right on with his report. We had a blast fishing. Very consistent with never more than a few minutes without a fish. Once we picked up my son, Bill was kind enough to let him reel in every fish he hooked (and I did the same) so a few fish were lost during the "hand off" to my son. We could have caught them all day long. My son had a blast and I learned a lot that will help me catch fish for some time now. Thanks to Bill for the very worthwhile trip. I went back out Saturday morning with good intentions however the wind blew me around so bad I didnt stay out long.

Well Yes it has been unreal on the Rock for the last two weeks for me.. Really got on the Small Jaw bite with the tube.. They were eating it just like Mr. B said in one of his reports.. Some so bad just had to cut the line.. I found my best bites came in the 25 to 35 foot range away from the bushes, single cedars on a flat was my big fish target and it paid off for over a week of really good size fish.. Had one that came two days ago.. Biggest small mouth I have ever caught on this lake, never been able to two fist a small mouth, lifted her by her belly and my hand was gone.. Waiting on client to email me pictures, he had the nice digital camera, took one with my Iphone and it does not do any justice for this fish.. Will post pictures when I get them.. Here are some from the last few days..

Now went out this morning Cold weather shut them off..... Had my rear end handed to me from 7 to 11... Only 6 fish all small mouth and nothing over 15"... Still seeing them, but just could not get the bite, probably started this afternoon.. Back it it in the morning will see if they come back to life.. Warm weather is coming!!

Good Fishing

Abbfish, perfect example look at Pete wenners video report from last week. Cast out and let sink to the bottom always keeping line tight. Jig/pull tube up through water and reel down slack. Key for me is slow.........and patience :) works for me! But there's always more than one way to cook an egg. Just my two sense lol

Agree with the previous reports. Had a stellar day with 20 smallmouths and 10 keepers. Chompers green pumpkin tube dragging it on the bottom real SLOW. Also, a split shot with a green pumpkin fish doctor worked, too. Here is a picture of John and Janet Schmitz from Tucson, AZ, with their best 7 keepers that were released to be caught another day....probably by Captain Don.
