October, 2016

~~The weather is finally cooling down but not enough to change bass and hybrid fishing. Fishing has been tough. The recent tournament results show that. We need some cold fronts to really lower the water temperature and hopefully change things for the better. We do have an abundance of shad this year which should help in the future. The hydrilla is back strong so there is plenty of shallow cover.

Bass are being caught on the ledges but it's hard to find a good school. They have been pounded this year. Fish are being caught around the hydrilla and pads on frogs and flukes. There are small largemouths and hybrids schooling for short periods. They can be caught on rattle traps and flukes. 
I've seen some good catches of crappie that are coming from the ledges. They are being caught on small jigging spoons. Catfish are still being caught on jugs. The lake must be full of them. I've not heard much on the bluegill and shellcracker fishing.
It can't be too much longer until cooler weather comes. I believe fishing will be good with all the schools of shad roaming the lake. I'm ready for it!
