The lake has turned to mud with all the rain.
<p>The lake is going through some mighty big changer right now. All the rain on Friday night and into Saturday had brought the lake level up about 2 foot and it is turning to mud. The flood gates are running wide open and and as strong as I have seen in a while. If the water comes up another 6 inches or so the dock at Waterfront will be underwater and with all the rain last night and with what is forecast for today that just might happen.
Now for the fishing.
In my last report which was for Friday we caught between 30 or 40 fish and had around 25 to 27 pounds for the best 5. On Saturday the bite was off a little. ON Sunday we didn't get alot of bites but the bites we did get were big and we could have had another 25lb+ day if we wouldn't have lost a couple. Could have had some really nice pictures if we wanted to show the other boats in the area what we were catching but with the guys were practicing for a tournament so we took them off slow and low. On Monday I fished we some more guys that were practicing for a tournament and were buddies with the guys from Sunday. We fished a totally different area of the lake and caught alot of fish but the really big fish didn't show up. We did manage to catch some nice fish though and after they seen what the pattern ways we never even fished the good stuff. They saw what we were catching and no one else was doing it in the area so we didn't want to show them. On Tuesday I fished with some more guys who where practicing for a different tournament and even though we only fished a half day we still got around some of the big ones. We would have had around 20 to 21 lbs. All fish being caught are on traps and jigs. That is the only 2 rods I am using. Would have been out there today but we decided to reschedule due to the weather and winds forecast for today. Even with all these guys fishing a tournament I never fished the same spot with any of the guys. I have fish located all over the lake and they will never run into each other. Trap fish are in 6 foot or less and jig fish are in 6 to 14 feet of water. The jig fish may change a little with this muddy water though.
Good luck out there.
