9-29-2012 Beaver Lake


Feathers and Fins

Recommended Posts

Started out in Prairie creek at 08:30 looking to see if the shad had moved up, they had not. Went to Rocky Branch and got into a wide open Hybrid/White bite and a few geese that were just begging to be killed, ended up with close to 50 whites/hybrids and a couple kentuckys up to 2 pounds. Ran on back up toward Prairie Creek area and decided to check out the Beaver Shores area's, ended up with 1 keeper walleye 8 short walleye 3 nice crappie and 11 nice largemouths.

Baits for the day were Flicker Shad, Keitech's on 1/4oz heads, Zara Spooks and Popr's

We fished around the island across from Rocky Branch and found some small Kentucky schools. Moved around from Honey Creek to Ford and we caught over 40 Kentuckys/meanmouth on dropshots. I heard the bite was tough today and it took just 10-11lbs to win a tournament. The bite got better as the day progressed and started getting much better around lunch or later.

I'm surprised you found a good bite on whites/hybrids. Then again, if anyone could find them, it would be you. :-)

Nope havent even tried to stick one, Still kicking myself for not taking the bow yesterday had a couple of this years fawns at 20yrds a few does and a nice 8pt. Did see guys who were hunting the islands for deer but no clue if they took anything.

J-doc the bite in Rocky Branch was at the back ramp it was wide open for at least 4 hours on the White/hybrids and there were probably 10 boats on the bite. After 12 it was a great bass bite at Beaver Shores we were trolling in 15fow the pattern was interesting if we were headed up river toward the hatchery it was walleye if we were headed toward Prairie Creek it was crappie and Bass.

Hey Scott......

You are de Man!

First ever shot of a mixed bag from casting AND blasting I can recall.

There must be a special "slam" term, what would you call it?

If you'd caught the fish on a fly rod, you could coin it the "on the fly" slam.

Keep up the good work!

Serioiusly, wish we had more participants who would share openly like you do.

Know what you mean. I have never been to Beaver lake and probably never will be but the Beaver lake thread is always the first thread I look at. and it is all because of all the fine posts that Scott contributes. Thanks allot.

Psst Bill, a few whites were on a FOF Fly but its not a super well known one yet. So I dont talk about it much, I think Phil may have a few at the landing if he hasnt used them all lol. Duane makes them and they are the best fly I have ever used. I sent some down to FL to a few friends who have taken Sails, Wahoo, Tuna, Dolphin Snook and Reds on them already.

No idea what an FOF fly is.

Am I the only one who doesn't know?

If you have that high a regard for it, I'm totally curious.
