Some beautiful weather...

Recommended Posts

But for me the fishing has been tough.

Caught just a handful Monday, caught some today, but almost all were sub-legal bank running males, mostly spots.  Today's sun moved them (again) up onto the banks, Ned rig off the buck brush would get bites.  Once it came off the bank and got into water over 5 feet deep, then they would not touch it.  

Keitech has gotten a few but it isn't working like it did last week.  There have been some early morning shad chasers in a pocket and some are even out into the main channel, but it's a brief bite.  

Weather couldn't have been much better than it was today, no wind, bright blue sky, air temp 74 degrees when I left.

Lots of fishermen, I counted 19 rigs in the Big M lot and 2 more came in when I left at noon.  In ordinary times you might see 6-8 rigs in the lot on a nice weekday in April.  

Did catch a keeper walleye on the Keitech.  I have a couple of bags of walleye fillets in the freezer so this one got to live to fight another day.

Sunday I found a good swimbait bite at Shell Knob for about 2 1/2 hours in the morning, ended up with 5 nice keepers, caught a bunch of fish, they had some Shad corralled up between two docks, they were about 15’ off the bank and suspended about 5-10’ they would stop for a bit and I would throw a 1/8 oz shakey head and they would attack that, it went on for about 2 1/2 hours, it was crazy, afternoon was a slow bite for me throwing various baits, late evening I went back and lost to exceptional fish, never seen em but they were heavy. Monday evening I was out when the rain came in and it turned those blacks on big time, all on the shakey head, threw a spinner bait that night and they were all over that on bluff with mixed big chunk rock. I had a great trip, right time right place. I only got two pictures. zoom shakey tail worm with buckeye spot remover shakey jig, 3.8 keitech on 3/8 oz Grubber head, 1/2 oz War Eagle P&B spinner bait and #1 Uncle josh & #11 Uncle josh B&B pork frog

Nicely done, my friend. As usual. And a great report! Glad you got into them.
