The flipping bite is the way to go right now.

The fishing the past few weeks has been work to say the least. This place is about a month behind right now. The grass has taken longer to mat up than I can remember in a long time. Normally the frog bite is wide open by now but I feel that it will turn on in the next few weeks. We are starting to find some areas with some blow holes in the mats but little to no noise in them. The fish should make the move in with the next cool front.

The best deal going right now is flipping and when you hit them it is wise that everyone pitch in the same place or you swing it in and grab another rod and pitch it right in the same place. There may be 2,3 or 6 or 7 of them in the same 10 to 15 foot area. Several times when reeling one in you will see others following them. 10 foot is the best depth.

If you don't see bait or bream keep moving. You have got to have life. Some days we have 25 to 30 bites and some we only get 10 to 15 bites a day. Best 5 are usually 17 to 18 lbs and we have had days with 20 to 25 lbs for the best 5. We have hit some groups of really good fish and in a matter of 5 flips we catch three 5 to 6 lb fish.

I have days open if anyone wants to go and if you want to reserve a day for frog fishing start planning now because its fixing to happen.

I haven't posted due to some severe comp. problems but I have fished pretty much everyday the past month. I plan on posting some pics in the next report but I am still having problems getting them uploaded.
