The fish are back finally! Mark, Ricky, and Devin joined me on a beautiful spring morning for his late Christmas present. Started out the day with a sextuple and it was fish on for the rest of the morning.
The fish were not grouped tightly this morning but were active and consistent. Caught fish in 22-36ft of water all on the old man’s slabs (Ol’ Ugly) and flies. Color did matter this morning and they wanted white or chartruese. The 3 of them ended the day around 120 and Devin with a nice flathead.
Everyone in the mini boat show played nice this morning and the fish bit well until the wind changed from the NW to the South. Luckily it waited until the guys were tired of catching and were ready for lunch.
Gene, Hayden, and Hannah joined me for the afternoon trip starting at 2:00 and the wind was blowing pretty good. Got out to the area I had left them in the morning and the sailboats and tubers were all out enjoying the spring weather. I threw a marker and got a rod to demonstrate and it was fish on from there. They caught 90+ fish in three hours and decided to call it a day so they could watch some basketball. The fish were much more stacked up in 30-38ft of water. Cleaned some for them and they had already spawned.
The fishing will be like this for the next several months…FINALLY! Water temp was 58-63 degrees today.
