Tuesday The 22Nd


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys-

Thought I'd go ahead and post a quick report. I came down and fished yesterday, kind of prefishing for the Winter Bass O Thon, since I have only been on Norfork a grand total of 3 days.

I started off the morning after the fog burned off by running up toward Pigeon creek. I graphed tons of bait off of flat points in the 20-30 foot range. Saw some bigger arches, drop shot and threw jigs at them a while with a couple bites and no hookups.

I worked back into the creek and started throwing a squarebill and started catching mainly short K's. Lots of shad, junk fishing the rest of the day brought about a dozen bass in the boat, mainly spots with 3 16-17" LMB, mainly on squarebills, one keeper LMB on a jig.

Chunk rock in 4-6' was the prevailing pattern, and if there was some obvious wood cover, it held a fish. Caught a couple short K's on a dropshot in channels about 35 feet deep, tons of bait on the graph pretty much everywhere.

I'm sure someone caught them better than me, I wish I had another day to try and figure something out. Things seemed very scattered. Water temps upper 60's, low 70's, nice green tint, not too clear about everywhere I went.

Hope this helps somebody- lol, it was a grind for me- ill take any help I can get too!
