ONTARIO – Canada: Jigs and Minnows Were Best this Week

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

More excellent fishing to report this week, although some may interpret it to be “slow”.

Don Thompson’s crew certainly would as they ONLY managed to boat 675 fish this week, one of the “slowest” years Don remembers in his 20+ coming to camp. I guess it’s all relative when you have been coming to camp for that long. How’s this for a week of fishing. Andy Augustine- many of you recognize the name along with his father Keith, as two of our most dedicated pike fishermen. Well they do a little walleye fishing on occasion while here too. In fact, Andy had releases this week of 29″, 26″, 24″, 23″, 22″, four 21″, and a 20″. Keith his father released walleyes as follows: four 22″, six 21″, and four 20″. Not to be completely outdone by “the boys”, Esther (Mom) while not spending nearly as much time on the water as the guys still managed to release a 24″, and three 21″ walleye.

Keith Messenger’s crew mentioned that the week was the best fishing for big walleye they have had since they have been coming to camp (relative newbies at three years). Rod Glessner released 25 1/2″ and 24″ walleyes, Don Schmidt released a 25″ walleye and Keith released a 20 1/2″ walleye, and they had a bunch more in the 18-20″ range and one sixteen incher that was so fat they measured it three times as they just couldn’t believe their eyes. Warren Tester’s had another crew here for their second trip this season with Bruce Rimstad releasing  22″ and 21 1/2″ walleyes, John Siffert releasing 22″, 21″ and a 19″ walleye, and Carter Christie releasing  21 1/2″, 20″ and 19″ ‘eyes.

Finally Brian Pralle was here again with his sister Brenda and parents Don and Joan and caught plenty of fish to take home and eat during the week. In fact Brenda, on her first Canadian fishing trip released a beautiful 21″ walleye as did Don.

Jigs and minnows were best this week fished on deeper structure in 24-32 fow, although a shallower bite was also going on with the same presentation in 16-18 fow.

MISSOURI: Black Bass – Good on Jigs, 10′ Plastic Worms & Shallow Crank Baits

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

The dog days of summer hit us early this year! One of the hottest and driest July’s we can remember. The water temp has shot up to 90 degrees in some spots! Not much water being generated in or out right now. Bull Shoals is now 3 ft below power pool and is expected to continue dropping about an inch a day. Watch for sand bars and submerged logs if you are planning on traveling up the lake toward powersite dam! We had 6 broken props brought in last week!

Water Temp 87 to 90 degrees

Water Level 650.9

Water is Clear to Stained

Black Bass – Good on Jigs, 10′ Plastic Worms and Shallow Crank Baits. Look for Bass in deeper water around 20 to 30 ft range. Early morning and after sundown has been the best. Throw a dark jig or shaky head into steep rock bluffs and points after dark. Also drag a Carolina Rig over the drops in the sand flats. Worm Color – Plum and Blue Fleck.

Walleye – Fair to Good on Live Minnows, silver spoons and night crawlers. The best reports have been up the lake around the Barker’s Hole area. Much cooler water.

Crappie – Good to Fair on live minn

PENNSYLVANIA: Lake Arthur – Crappie on Jigs with Bright-colored Twister Tails

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Finally some cooler temperatures have fishing returning to normal!

Reports of walleye catches over the humps and along the road beds with worm harnesses have been coming in.

For crappie, try jigs with bright-colored twister tails in the weed beds.  Several nice catches of channel catfish are being caught.

Many hybrid striped bass are being caught in the 17-20″ size range.  This year class of fish will be legal next year.

ALABAMA: Bass – Doing Well Jigs and Bottom Rigs

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Bass – Doing well Jigs and bottom rigs are catching good fish around the shore lines. Top water early and late will produce some bites. Fishing deep around sunken structure is good with jigs or crank baits.

Crappie – Getting hotter, trolling the ledge tops with minnow tipped jigs is a good combo. Mid morning to mid day is a good time frame. If you want to add to the excitement, add a lipless crank bait to the mix. The hybrids and bass are feeding on the same shad as the Crappie.

Bream- Are really slow during the cold months.

Catfish – Good yea around for the relaxed fisherman. Bottom fishing is steady on the drops with cut bait or the usual catfish favor. Take a good book and relax between bites. If you want to read, you will usually have a hot bite to keep you busy.

The lake level is up over four feet and all the vegetation that had started to germinate in the warmer than normal winter will now make great cover for the craws and bait fish. Spring is going to be really hot on Lake Eufaula. The fish are healthy, sores are gone for the most part and the fish are growing. If you want to do your part to make them grow faster , eat a few of the 14 to 15.5 inch bass. They are too numerous and are all fighting for the same food source.

Dress in layers and take plenty of water for a days outing. Spark and Rehydrate are great to keep your energy up and focused on your fishing.

Please visit www.leekingbenefit.org and register for the June 9, 2012 tournament.

We are striving for 200 teams this year. Please pray about the weekend and join us to make a difference in the lives of these terminal children.

TENNESSEE: Old Hickory Lake – Caught Bass on Crank Baits, Jerk Baits, Jigs & Worms

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Decided to go to the lake yesterday for a couple hours. Arrived at 11am but did not start fishing till noon, due to motor problems. After resolving motor issues, my day turned into a great December day!

Air temperature was 63 degrees, and water temperature was 51 degrees when I arrived. I started out fishing transition banks. It did not take long to start catching them. Caught my first bass on the third cast. A solid keeper. I caught fish just about anyway I wanted. I caught some on crank baits, jerk baits, jigs, and worms. I ended the day around 3PM.

Caught 10 bass, 5 keepers with the biggest being 4 and half to 5 pounds. Had a couple over 3, a 2 and half, and one about 2 pounds.

Did not have a fish after 2pm, but had wore the spot out pretty good.

The key to success was to find the shad. Find the shad, you find the fish! Good luck to all!

ARKANSAS: Greer’s Ferry – topwater bite good on Worms, Jigs & C-riged Lizards

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

The water level at Greers ferry is at 462.56 and falling that is 1.53 feet above normal pool.

The hybrids and white bass are back to eating better than they have been due to the recent rain and cooler water temps and more oxygen , use topwater baits ,in-line spinners,grubs,swimbaits as well as spoons, find the bait and the fish will be close by, and just be patient and you can catch some.

The bream bite is good shallow as the full moon spawn is over and they are guarding the young and eating crawlers, catalpa worms, crickets, crankbaits and topwater baits shallow as out to 27 feet of water

The recent rains should help the walleye bite, try crawlers dragged on jighead and try a drop shot rig, with crawlers on in 23-48 feet of water.

Catfish are still good all over the lake as most bait at a lot of depths will work.

Crappie is suspended in pole timber in 15-25 feet over 60-100 feet of water and will eat jig and jigs tipped with minnows

Bass fishing is good shallow, they are up chasing bream and the topwater bite is good as well as the deeper bite, on worms ,jigs and c-riged lizards  from 15 feet out to 50
