The bite is picking up

We had some pretty good days last week but the big fish were hard to come by. One day we probably caught 35 flipping and every fish was between 2 pounds to 3 pounds. I don't believe that I have ever had a day that we caught that many and never caught one over four pounds. We also caught fish on spinnerbaits, swimbaits, horny toads and worms.

This week has been a little different, we have been catching some bigger fish and have seen some chasing going on. We are still having to work for them but have been hitting a few active groups through the day. It seems like the morning time is decent and as the sun gets up it slows down a little until around 11 and then the bite picks up as the day goes on. Swimbaits, frogs, flipping big jigs & creature baits are working best. We are catching around 30 a day on average and have had a few days that the fish were a little more active and have caught 40 to 50 on the better days.

My wife has went back to school and had to take the comp. And I am in the process of loading all the things I need on my new comp. and i am unable to do pictures. I hope to be done in the next few days.

The next few weeks I still have some days available but if everyone that I have talked to books after getting their plans figured out things will get hectic but I will still do my best to get anyone who calls out. I have been reserving dates into Oct. and Nov. so reserve your days soon.

Good luck out there.
