Nice morning on the Rock for my crew out of the Lodge this morning. Hit the drink at 0500 and pointed the Star Ship in the direction of what I hoped would be a topwater popperie. read more…
In the past 3 wks. I’ve had 2 days of 25+ fish on topwater and 4 days of 20+ on grubs including a bonus 25″ walleye……..Folks this can be a real hard lake to fish and most of the time at least with me the Rock comes out on top but this year has been something special, plus I caught all of these fish in what I consider to be the most heavily pressured part of the lake. And what about the Smallies??? I have never seen so many on table rock in 20 yrs. of beating the banks. Well all I can say is sometimes God smiles at ya and you come out on top. read more…
Bass fishing was OK, again caught a few more than 20, maybe half a dozen keepers. Ol’ Monster early, then some Fin fish on top for a while, picked up a few on the c-rigged Zoom UV Speed craw. Wished I had brought the Drop shot stuff, I could see them out on the deep end of the gravel points later in the morning. read more…
Ozarkanglers Shirts – White Tees, extra heavy (not the cheap thin kind) with OA logo on the back of the shirt.
We have seen decent numbers of sulphurs from Wildcat upstream as far as Cane Island, thick enough to get the fish rising but not so thick as to swamp your artificial offering. Parachute Sulphurs, Comparaduns and Sparkle Duns all work well but when the fish get picky try a Northwinds Cripple. read more…
Went down to the Big Sugar yesterday to what was going on. Got on the water by 8:00 and nobody else was around. That’s always a good thing! Cloudy skies all around me and I’m thinking it’s going to be a good day. Started off real slow with only a couple small smallies and then the action picked up a bit. Started out throwing a plastic worm and caught a few then switched over to a fluke, but not much there. Put on the lizard then things picked up a bit more. Let’s see, it rained on me for awhile. That felt pretty good. Then I switched back over to the worm and caught this nice largemouth for the biggest of the day. By now it was noon and I was getting tired of catching the smaller ones so I decided to call it a day. As I was pulling out Sugar Island was putting in a party crowd. They were quite entertaining.
Out on the water at the crack of dawn, headed to my favorite point and started tossing the c-rigged Ol’ Monster. They bit the Monster really well for a about 20 minutes up on the point shallow and then it was over. Did some top water fishing with a Fin that I have that works sort of OK, caught a few on it, lost about half a dozen, including one that was around 3 lbs. First time I’ve used braid with the fin, I don’t know if that was a factor but losing a bunch of fish halfway to the boat is annoying. read more…
