Springfield Lake Report

Went out last saturday morning and fished under every single tree tossing road runners up under them. Only had two crappie and a catfish to show for it. I love topwater fishing (dont we all) and was wondering if anybody think a bass would even consider biting a buzz bait now? Let alone it being an effective way to catch fish. Thanks for any advice. God Bless.

I've been throwing a popper during the first hour of daylight and right after dark and I've been doing ok on bass. They average about 14 inches. But the bite isn't very hot yet, during the time I throw it, I'll only have 3 or 4 fish to show for it. I've been doing much better on texas rigged worms, wacky rigged senkos, and white swimbaits and flukes.

Well I went out again and had mo luck on top. Did switch to some crank baits and man the bass fought hard. I had some I though would be keepers (above 15) and they were keepers but less than 12 haha. It was crazy but a lot of fun

I went out again yesterday and threw a few crankbaits and caught one 16 inch largemouth on a white shallow running crank, and I lost a bigger one on a craw pattern crank. The fish were very picky, but the highlight of the day was the 18 inch smallmouth I caught on a 4 inch white swimbait. I'll be out again tomorrow and I'll try to update when I get done.

Well Tuesday wasn't as good of a catching day as I had hoped. I only landed 2 largemouth, and they weren't exactly brag worthy, only about 10 inches each. I would have had more, but my line chose a great time to start being unreliable and broke off on 2 fish I believe would have been pushing 3 pounds. Well one of them anyway. The other wasn't on the line long enough for me to get a feel for his size. So after I replace my line, I'll be back out there Saturday morning before I have to go to work. Patrick, if you ever want a fishing partner, just let me know and I'll pitch in for gas and conversation on the water.

That actually works perfect. I'm off tuesdays and wednesdays too. And the fishing fanatic that I am, I went out again this morning and right before the sun came up, I hooked into a fat 20 inch largemouth on a popper on the first cast of the day. But that was the only fish of the day. Oh well, I'll catch more later.
