2016 OCT 12- FISHING REPORT
It's October, the fish are into their Fall Feeding Frenzy and it's only going to get better! The White Bass (and an occasional Hybrid Striper) are on many of the Main Lake Hotspots, feeding on shad and gearing up for the cooler Fall temps! We are having to catch a large number of small, medium and large Whites in order to get a box full of Keepers, but that's ok as the small throwbacks will be Keepers by Spring! Because we are having to throw many of the small fish back, we make sure we cut one of the three hooks off the treble hook on our Slabs and then close off the barbs. We encourage you to do the same and help save our "next years keepers"! Check out the Windsock Point, Pelican Island and Long Arm Branch Point and I'll bet you find a school of fish just waiting there to be caught!
If Catfish is your choice, the catching has been nothing short of AWESOME!!! We're making the boat ride up the Richland Creek Arm and fishing in timber in 10'-20' feet of water with Danny Kings Punch Bait on a # 4 Treble Hook! Almost every trip lately has resulted in limits of Cats (Both Blues and Channels) and it's only going to get better as the "Eater Size" fish we're catching now will have more and more larger Cats in with them as the water temp cools down. There's not much better fish for the Family Fish Fry than fresh caught Catfish!
Adam and I have Fall Weekdays we need to fill and even a Saturday or two in November & December that is available. Give us a call to reserve a date and experience how enjoyable a Crisp, Cool Day on the Lake in the Fall can be!
