LAKE LEVEL: 560.4
NORMAL LEVEL FULL POOL: 564.0
SURFACE TEMP: 61.4 am 64.1 pm
WATER CLARITY: FAIR
CRAPPIE: I fished the Finley & McVeigh on the 15th & 16th. On the 15th we had 97. On the 16th after a strong cold front
came through we had 65. Fish Mike & Gerald on the 17th. Woke up to a big high pressure system with strong NE winds.
Surface temp. had dropped 9*F. Fished the best I could for 21 keepers. With the high barometers and blue bird skies
fishing is TOUGH.
BASS: Bass fishing has quit along with everything else. If the weatherman is correct things should start back in by about
Friday. Spinner baits & Buzz baits around the docks. Shallow crank baits around the grass. Pitching Pig/N/Jig under the
docks. Slow down and due the best you can.
STRIPE: No activity seen since the cold front.
WHITE BASS: NO REPORT
BREAM: NO REPORT
CATFISH: All you want. Come and get em! Seems to be the only thing biting. The boys staying here had a 50+ pounder
break off at the dock using rib cages from the crappie they were cleaning.
CARP: NO REPORT
I do not mean to be a dark cloud in the sky but this cold front has done it's usual "whammy" on fishing but I think that
after things stabilize as they usually do after a day or two things should return to normal and we still should have some
season left before the fish go south for the winter. As usual I always have a major breakdown at some point each week.
Word to the wise...just because you buy new tires does not mean you will not have a flat as I did today. I replaced my
tires three weeks ago and not only did I have a flat but one of my depth finders also decided to go south. I have carried
around a 4-way lug wrench,just for this reason, for 10 years and guess what?? It will not fit a Ranger trailer tire. So if you
are a Ranger trailer owner you need to carry a 13/16th socket and ratchet or you are going to be flapping. As usual
Murphy's Law got me today. And how was your week? Good Fishing to everyone!!
