ALABAMA: Fish Caught on Missile Bait Tomahawk Worms

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Sunday evening I spent some time fishing with a few folks out of the great state of Arkansas they were here doing some meeting stuff with the rest of there management team. We had a late day trip I must say the 1st hour or so was still pretty tough out there with some intense heat. The last few hours the fish started schooling up and we started finding fish along grass lines and points.

Most of our fish were caught on Missile Bait Tomahawk worms, some top water with Spro frogs and buzz frogs. We worked mainly the mid part of the lake and and found bits off several areas around the mid lake.

Fishing is good, the top water bite is improving everyday, fall is near and we have time to take you fishing! Come fish with me I have days available to fish with you!

GEORGIA: Fish Caught on Live Shrimp also Hitting DOA’s & Soft Plastic Baits

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

The trout bite has been very strong all summer long most of the fish have been right under the keeper size but there are TONS of fish.

This fall should be one of the best inshore bites in a long time and I can not wait. Most of the fish have been caught on live shrimp but there are also hitting DOA’s and any soft plastic baits.

As for the redfish I have seen a lot of rat reds which I love to see and a few of the big reds are also starting to bite back in the rivers.

S. CAROLINA: First School of Fish Just After We Started Poling

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

We headed out at first light on New Years day looking to sight fish for schooling reds.

It was a bit chilly getting off of the ramp but as we got moving down the river it really wasn’t too bad. The water temperature dropped a few degrees which seemed to slow the fish down a little. We got onto our first school of fish just after we started poling and put the first fish in the boat by 6:45 am… first red of the year; I don’t know for sure, but it would be hard to beat! We went on to catch 15 more over the next few hours and got back to the ramp early.

Until next time, catch em up! Capt. Charlie

FLORIDA: Most Fish Hitting on CAL Jerk baits, DOA shrimp or Live Bait

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Inshore:

Another week of wonderful weather and great fishing action out on the Indian River! We should enjoy the same conditions the rest of the month! The river is full of mullet and the fish have been feeding heavily. Have fun and get out fishing soon!

I had the privilege of fishing for the Michael Shield’s Memorial Inshore Fishing Tournament again this year. It’s a great event for a wonderful cause…The Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County. I had Eric and Alex Weider again this year on the boat. We had a fantastic time out on the river. Alex and Eric teamed up for a day of redfish and trout action. 7 year old, Alex, just missed the big redfish of the tournament by one inch! Already looking forward to next year.

Joey, Steven and Nick joined my this week for an adventure on the river. After a morning of trout and a big jack for Nick, we went up on the flats to look for redfish. The guys weren’t disappointed when we came up on a nice school of upper slot fish. Joey missed two reds and Steven landed two big fish to end a good day on the water. Joe and Barbara also were out with me on a day when a variety of fish were willing to cooperate. They had fun fishing both docks and the flats on another beautiful day on the Indian River.

The trout bite has picked up this week. Most fish are in three to five feet of water and hitting on CAL jerk baits, DOA shrimp or live bait. Redfish schools are still cruising around the river in one to three feet of water. DOA shrimp, CAL grub tails or live bait has all worked in hooking up on some nice fish. The snook bite continues to be good at night around the jetties, docks and bridges of the area. Live bait, feather jigs, DOA Bait Buster or trolling a diving plug has all worked good for nighttime snook.

We are catching more flounder this past week. It should continue to improve through this fall. Live bait, CAL jerk baits or DOA shrimp has all worked well. You can still find snapper and sheephead around the docks, bridges and channel edges this week. Live or dead shrimp are best. There has been some good tarpon, snook and jack action at night around the jetties as the schools of finger mullet move in with the tide. The turning basin and inlet has been flooded with blue runners, bluefish and jacks that are all feasting on the bait schools. It’s been a productive month on the Indian River!

As always, remember, fishing is not just another hobby….it’s an ADVENTURE!!

Good Fishing and Be Safe,

FLORIDA: Caught A 9 ½ lb fish on a weedless-rigged CAL shad tail

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Anglers fishing with me on my Action Craft flats skiff the Snook Fin-Addict, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released trout, reds, blues and sheepshead in Sarasota Bay and jumped several tarpon in the Peace River during the past week. The best action was with trout on deep grass flats and juvenile tarpon in the Peace River.

Steve Gibson, of Southern Drawl Kayak Fishing, fished the Peace River and residential canals of Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda with me on Tuesday. We found plenty of tarpon in the 15 to 30-pound class and jumped 3 tarpon to 20-pounds on rootbeer DOA TerrorEyz. These mini torpedoes are great fun, jumping higher and more frequently than larger fish. They should continue to be a good option for the next couple of months.

Jerry Roth, from the Orlando, FL area, fished north Sarasota Bay with me on Thursday. He connected with a pair of over slot reds, one on a surface walking top water plug and the other, a 9 ½ lb fish, on a weedless-rigged CAL shad tail. Ken Alexander and Steve Johns, from Sarasota, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Friday. The action wasn’t fast but was steady. They caught and released trout to 17″ and a bluefish on DOA Deadly Combos and CAL jigs with shad tails. The best action was near Whale Key.

Fly angler Mark Torkos, from St. Augustine, FL, fished Sarasota Bay with me on Saturday. We checked the coastal gulf for little tunny (false albacore) and Spanish mackerel but didn’t find anything. With plentiful baitfish in the coastal gulf, it is only a matter of time before the albie fishing takes off. We caught a few trout on Clouser flies at the Middleground flat and Stephens Point before moving to shallow water where Mark caught and released a sheepshead on a Clouser fly near Long Bar. Sheepshead are very challenging with flies and lures, since they feed mainly with their nose, and this was the first sheepshead on a fly for Mark.

Next week’s tides will improve towards the end of the week as we approach a full moon on Sept. 12th. Trout, blues, Spanish mackerel and more on deep grass flats of Sarasota Bay, little tunny and Spanish mackerel in the coastal gulf or juvenile tarpon in the Peace River should all be good options depending on conditions.

CALIFORNIA: Good Opportunities to Fish Small Mayfly & Para-midge Patterns

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Howdy friends and Sierra Drifters.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and have had several opportunities to come visit us here in the Sierra. We have been enjoying a prolonged period of warm stable weather with no significant changes in the mid-range forecasts.

Fish’N conditions are pretty good in most areas with the majority of the run-off behind us. The alpine regions are fantastic and have benefited from the huge snowpack. The freestone creeks are clear and running at fishable levels in all areas. Above average flows remain on the tailwaters of the East Walker; Lower Owens, and Rush Creek. You can expect this trend to remain for the time being. Look for an untimely increase on the Upper Owens in the future as well.

Crowley Lake & Bridgeport Reservoir
Hard for me to pick which one to fish! They are both fishing as good as they get, and have the best conditions fly fishers have seen all season with good numbers of bigs showing daily. You can experience some painfully slow bites in both areas especially during the late morning/ middle of the day doldrums before the breeze picks up. The non-stop, Under-cator plunging all day, 50-100 fish to net we saw only a handful of years ago are just not to be in either location anymore. I said as good as they get, not as good as they have ever been. Stocking programs on both lakes are increasing since the declines in recent years and both fisheries will improve for numbers in the future. Crowley received DFG browns this spring and has been planted earlier due to excellent water conditions. Both locations have significant numbers of small rainbows that have been recently planted. They have infiltrated all areas of Crowley and you can’t avoid them currently.

Elbow yourself into good spot and you can have fun with some trophy sized fish in between the dinks (new arrivals). Early mornings have been the most consistent on both bodies of water. The Bridge & Crowley are both full pool with fine water clarity. Weed lines end in the 18-20 foot range so you must locate clearings near creek inlets, submerged creek channels, or large “holes” in the grass. Stillwater nymphing has been productive in both areas with the most consistent fishing in the 11-15 foot depths with some “trout-codders” hanging bugs down 18-21 feet.

Wet years always make for a significant callibaetis emergence and you will have more opportunities using these imitations as opposed to chironomids near the inlets in McGee Bay, Hilton, and the Upper Owens on Crowley; Robinson & Buckeye inlets, or the EW channel on the Bridge. Trolling damsel nymphs and small perch fry from your tube can also be productive in these locations if you have the room to roam. The east shoreline around the marina to the launch ramp along the “drop off” is very consistent on the Bridge using our Punk Perch patterns or Loebergs #10-14. Loebergs on Crowley seem to be the ticket out in deep water along the weed lines, and then close to the shoreline along the protruding grass during low light periods. Use a “killa-baetis” callibaetis nymph as a trail fly in both areas.

The chironomids are showing in McGee Bay out in the deeper water where the bottom did not go dry when it was lowered this spring. Both larva and pupa/emerger patterns are performing on the mud. The deeper water has perhaps been more consistent, but it not nearly as fun as hooking them in short water and seeing your backing!

Both lakes have reached their high levels this year and will begin lowering steadily in the future. The weed lines will become more apparent and make it easier for those without GPS and sonar to find spots to fish and spread out. Shaping up to be a solid fall season in both locations.

East Walker River
The EW is pretty fun right now despite above average flows. This river can fish well even up to 400 cfs if you use enough weight this time of year. Example: I had high confidence that a number of fish were holding in a 30 foot section in a popular stretch of the Miracle Mile. A handful of well-placed casts and drifts from my client Jim Chase got NO LOVE. I added additional weight, lengthened the depth below the Under-cator and we went back to work. First drift with the additional weight-bendo! Same flies, same drift, more weight did the trick.

Seeing some good opportunities to fish small mayfly and para-midge patterns in the foam as well. The finicky finned veterans of the EW will hit those small dries if you can handle fishing the tiny adults in the soft water eddies along the shoreline. Use a larger high-vis mayfly pattern 2-3 feet above the your point fly to help you locate position and assist with mending. Afternoon caddis always fun after the sun goes behind the hills. Good reports from several clients fishing the sundowner recently.

PT’s and broken back midges in the #16-20 range are good choices for nymphing with, or without an Under-cator. Our Copper and dark zebra broken backs are truly deadly here, you should try them. Grasshoppers are abundant as well, so when the flows drop some use a hopper & a bead head dropper to cover both layers of the water column.

Some sections have significant weed along the bottom and it can be frustrating to keep your flies clean. Don’t get complacent and not clean/check them between presentations.

Upper Owens River
Excellent conditions currently. The section upstream from the Benton Bridge has some larger fish holding in the Long Years area and above the confluence of Hot Creek. Most are small wild fish here that are eager to hit BWO’s or caddis and hopper patterns. The numbers (stockers) are to be found in the stretches below the campground and downstream from the bridge. Nymphing has been best here using PT’s, tiger or zebra midges and SJ worms. We are still a ways off from the fall migration but it should be a good one this season.

Hot Creek
Grasshoppers in the afternoon rock. Fish small mayfly and midge adults for the morning hatches. Weeds are an issue now, you gotta stay in the wider channels and shorten the drifts, lengthen the leaders. Water conditions remain great for this time of year and will be good throughout September for sure. Pretty fun watching the rascals zoom out from under the weeds to whack a large hopper on the top! This is one time where a splashy presentation does not reduce your chances for a grab. Keep the drag off your drifts & as little fly line on the water as possible on Hot Creek or you ain’t getting any love friends.

Alpine Lakes
Tubing Rock Creek Lake has been WFO according to Two Bug Doug. Some 2-3 lbers in the mix as well. Troll near the inlet and south shoreline drop-off with full sinks. Seal buggers, Spruce-a-Bu’s, Loebergs are all good choices with a full sinking or heavy sink tip line. Good reports from Twin Lake Mammoth. Still water nymphing with tigers or zebras and callibaetis patterns working very well near the falls.
Silver has also been hot using the still water nymphing technique near the inlet and along the drop-offs. Frank and Eric Carlsen (veteran drifters) told me they out fished the “darkside” 10-1 recently. Zebras whacked them here. Virginia Lakes is awesome this time of year and is enjoying a consistent bite recently. Streamers will get you a shot at the larger fish and still water nymphing will put you in the numbers. The copper tigers and emergers work better here for nymphing.

San Joaquin River
Beautiful down here this time of year. The wild flowers are really stunning. Still running high but very fishable with increasing opportunities to hit the tailouts and slower riffle water. September should be amazing for dry fly if the weather holds. Dry/ dropper bead head combos work great near the campgrounds, while I suggest you fish caddis or mayfly patterns #14-16 for the wild trout that smack them immediately after a well laid out cast. Terrestrials like ants, beetles, and grasshoppers also get aggressive takes here.

Lower Owens River
Still tough to wade and cross in the wild trout section. The flows have been holding around the 400cfs level for a prolonged period of time so the fish have had adequate time to adapt. Early mornings are a must this time of year or then again in the late afternoons due to the heat. Caddis and PMD’s for your dries and nymphs. #16-18. Once again, proper weighting is crucial for nymphing.

The drift boat sections have picked up nicely since the debris and weed issue has diminished. The bite can slow mid-day during the summer, however we are just beginning to start drifting and the runs are all fresh with water that has not been hit for almost two months. The higher flows once stabilized are not an issue for drifting this time of year as the water is warm and the fish will charge out of the holes and undercuts to grab a streamer pattern. Loebergs, Punk Perch, and crystal Vanderleeches are good choices. The Drifters guides bring along 4wts. with floating lines in the event we get a shot at some afternon caddis or morning mayfly emergences. Nymphing from the drift boats with high water is not as productive as the “dip & strip” technique we perfected utilizing streamers and heavy sinking tip lines. We will have access to ALL 20 miles of river this fall/winter due to above average release rates and I am looking forward to a very productive fall and winter season. Hope you can drift with us soon.

Adobe Pond
This will be a great fall to fish Dobe. Lots of water means lots of food and the wild browns are fat and happy here. The Drifters guide staff all agree that the fish have a larger average this year as well as the numbers being up. This is one of the best places to sight cast to rising browns on a private piece of water in the Sierra. We use our drift boats to cover the water efficiently and in comfort. Click the www.sierradrifters.com/AdobeRanch.html page for booking info please.

Eagle Lake-Now Booking Fall Trips!
Eagle Lake has become my favorite still water destination and has earned its reputation as the best rainbow fishery in California. Eagle’s scenic beauty combined with numbers of quality trophy sized rainbows makes it the premier natural lake fishery in the state. The fall trip will take place from September 21st through October 16th. You are invited to join me up at Eagle for some truly memorable fishing.

My friends at Eagle tell me the bite has not stopped since we left this spring and that the water conditions are great. The South Basin and the narrows around Pelican Pt. are still fishing well with solid hatches of caddis, callibaetis, jumbo chironomids, and damsel flies. September will bring schools of chubs migrating into the shallows and the big rainbows will chase them into short water. It is very much like bone fishing for trout in the fall here as we focus on the shallow water structure. I can’t wait, hope you can make up!

MISSOURI: Fish Can be Caught on Jewel Football Jig and J Tail Combos

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Kimberling City Area:
Generation continues as power demands require. Current does help the bite on points through out the lake but it has been drawing water out of the shallows moving fish out of the shallow cover they have been holding on for the past two weeks. While the current is running fish can still be caught on Jewel Football jig and J tail combos from fifteen to twenty feet deep around sunken brush and rock piles. During slack current days switch up to a drop shot rig with Chompers drop shot worms on these same points thirty to forty feet deep.

James River:
Despite water being pulled out of the shallowest cover fish are staying shallow on the James. Look for flooded brush and laydowns near the old bank line to be the most productive areas, work big worms like Chompers Magnum Hawgs in blue fleck through the cover on a Texas rig. Make multiple casts to shady areas to draw strikes. Days with current position fish on rock and brush piles on main lake points, target these areas with DD 22’s or other deep diving crankbaits.

White River:
The White River continues to be the most productive area of the lake with fish being caught from a few feet to forty feet deep throughout the river. Shallow anglers are doing well with Chompers Magnum Hawg worms in the dirtier water of the Kings River and the back of some of the larger creek arms. While current is flowing alternate deep crankbaits and Jewel Football jigs in and around sunken brush and rock piles fifteen to twenty five feet deep. Deep anglers are having success with Chompers drop shot worms on deep drops off of pea gravel points twenty five to thirty five feet deep.

Dam Area:
On the lower end the bite has transitioned to almost an exclusive deep bite, Chompers drop shot worms on drop shot rigs worked on the deep edges of gravel points from twenty five to thirty five feet deep. Chompers spoons have also been producing mixed bags of spotted and white bass in and around schools of suspended shad, watch your electronics for shad locations. Further up Long Creek Jewel Football jigs and deep crankbaits have been effective on points from the state line to Cricket Creek.

TEXAS: Lake Ray Roberts – Most Fish are Post Spawn Now

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Lake Ray Roberts is about 1 foot below normal level and water temperature is 71 to 73 degrees on the main lake. .

The water color is lightly stained. Fishing this week is very good. Most fish are post spawn now and good place to look for them is points at the mouths of major creeks. We are catching some under birds and shallow on points with “The Floatin Thing” that I make. Fishing main lake humps and points and ridges in 28 to 38 feet deep with, Cotton Cordell CC Spoons 3/4 oz. chrome color with a Flies-By-Night chartreuse original fly tied 14inches above the spoon for doubles, is where we are doing the best.

Have fun fishing.

FLORIDA: Jude’s first fish Tampa Bay

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Captain Steven will never forget this day as my 19 month grandson Jude caught his first fish. With the winds howling at 20 mph we only ventured a few hundred yards from the Marina fully protected from the winds.

The day started at sunrise with my son n law and I chasing redfish in canals which afforded protection from the winds. With the water to rough to chase bait we used shrimp with good success with redfish, trout, mackerel, sheepshead, flounder, snapper and several other species. The reds were under the docks with trout in the center of the canals.

We braved the wind and ran to another area loaded with docks and mangroves and quickly scored again and again on redfish to 20″. The ride back in 20 mph winds was fun to say the least.

In the comfort and protection from O’Neill’s Marina we picked up my wife Jackie, daughter Jessica and grandson Jude.

Motoring less than 100 yards to keep it comfortable with the high winds we set up in 3′ and tossed shrimp under a cork. It took no time for Jude to wrangle in his first fish with help from his Dad.

I could be more proud or excited to have shared this moment.
