Fishing the last few weeks has been up and down. A few days we have seen them come up schooling running the shad and yes the water temp is in the upper 50's and other days it is a grind. I am starting to think that this is the never ending winter. I think that when it finally warms up that every fish in the lake is going to be spawning and it will be like 3 or 4 years ago when it was so unreal.

I have been covered up here lately and several days after fishing a full day I have dropped folks off and picked up others and fished until dark. It gets pretty tiring but I will do what ever to get everyone out and at least get them pointed in the right direction so they don't spend there trip trying to figure something out and then it be time to head home.

We have been catching fish on traps, swimbaits, a-rigs, jigs, jerkbaits, crankbaits but the hard thing is that you catch them here today and you won't get a bite there tomorrow.

I have days open if anyone wants to get out and I am booking for April and May every day so reserve ahead of time. This is all that I do along with several of the other guides so try not to wait until a few days before you arrive. We all will do whatever we can to get you out or set up with someone.

Good luck and I have taken some pictures back at the ramp but only because some people have forgotten there camera and caught the big one. Some of the people I fished with I have run into the following days and they caught some big ones.
