Started out in the rain throwing a jerk bait this morning, caught a few largemouth, when the rain quit I went to Indian creek and loaded up on these whites, then started throwing a rock crawler, caught a bunch of them but only one keeper, scale said 3-6. Thought about throwing a jig early but stayed with that jerk bait. i guess we will see with this cold weather that is coming will do to the water temps. Good luck. read more…


Beaver Lake: 12-4 striper

Posted by Phil Lilley on December 5th, 2016

Took a friend fishing with me today to go after some striper.  Was persistent with the cast net thanks to Dan and netted about 2 dozen gizzard shad. I lost  3 stripers, and caught 3 good size largemouth.  He lost a few stripers also but brought in a small 8-10 pounder and then caught this one about 20 lbs. It was his biggest striper ever and made our day.  He caught it on one of his bass baitcasters so it took a little while.  Had to spend some time reviving it but was released when it was spunky.  He didn’t keep the smaller one either because he is allergic to eating fish.

Stockton Lake: Bass Report 12-4

Posted by Phil Lilley on December 5th, 2016

Put in at Orleans Trail around 8:30am while the remaining rain/mist was passing through.  Fished around Orleans trail until it cleared up some.  Then headed out and fished around the darn area for a couple hours.  Water temp was still 53-54 degrees with some cooler water around 51 deg in the backs.  Started with sbait again and caught a few but not the same consistency as earlier in the week.  Started throwing the jig more on deeper banks/channel swings in the back half of creeks and there was a steady bite all day.  Had a buddy with me today and together we had around 30 fish with around 12 keepers…nothing big just typical 15-17″ fish.  Fished around the darn to price and up by mile long bridge.  Hopefully the big girls will start showing up soon…this cold front coming this week should really cool the water down more…hope to get down next weekend to fish the Polar Bear Tourney on Sunday….should be a good one!! read more…

Bull Shoals: November 27 Report

Trolled cranks for a couple of hours.   Ended up with 2 nice slabs (pictured 14″) and two sub legal walleye.   Several hookups weren’t landed.   Lots of fish and bait in the 16-19 range.     This is the “roll off” depth right now.    This is setting up well for great winter fishing.    Fish can go from 25′ to soak in the sun at 12′ with very little effort.    These attached Screen shots are what I usually see before I hook up with a white bass.    Im not sure why these didn’t cooperate.    They may have been shad, but my experience on these type of images is 9 times out of 10 it’s white bass. What do you guys think? read more…
