Hudson Lake teaching trip focusing on patterns for white bass, crappie, spoonbill paddlefish, and blue catfish with Lance’s Guide Service.
Long time customer, Joe, booked a teaching trip on his home lake. I have never been on Hudson before, but told him we’d see what we can find out. Joe’s wife had breakfast ready at their cabin when I got there…very nice surprise! After good food we got in the Procat and went looking around his area of the lake. It is much like Fort Gibson, river lake that can go from 40ft deep to zero in a hurry with stumps, rocks, ect.
We focused on talking about patterns of blue catfish, white bass, crappie, and spoonbill paddlefish. We drove and scanned about half of the lake marking brush piles, points, feeding flats, and prime ledges. We also spent a good amount of time on sonar and mapping 101.
It was a great day to do a teaching trip and get to see another lake I’ve never been on with great people. We even got to see a bald eagle swoop down and have an afternoon snack.
