This warm weather has more and more fish moving in everyday. On Saturday the clients and I put together one of the biggest bags of the year that went around 37 to 38 lbs. Biggest was almost 9 and the other 4 where 7 to 8 lbs. It was awesome. Today we caught around 20 fish and had over 30 lbs for our best 5 and if the storm wouldn't have blown us away we could have probably caught a few more that would have helped. Just before it hit we had just boated a couple of six's and hadn't even made it to the sweet spot of that area. When the storm came it came fast and hit while we were taking out. I had waves breaking over the front of the boat and the back and on the way home I seen several down trees and along with what it looked like sheets of metal that had blown off from a roof that was wrapped around trees and hanging from the electrical wires. Made me be really grateful that I was off the water and everyone was safe.

We are catching fish on a-rigs in 8 to 14 feet of water. Most of the places you really have got to get in there and work the areas. Timing is huge right now. You can hit a spot and nothing will happen and come back in a couple of hours and load the boat. Sometimes the best thing to do is not leave fish to find fish and the best thing to do is hunker down. Its nice to have a handful of places with-in a few miles to rotate between though.

I have Thursday and Saturday of this week open and Wed. and a 1/2 day Thursday Afternoon and Saturday of next week open if anyone wants to get out. The big fish are really on right now so don't miss out on the action.

Good Luck out there.
