    Yesterday I fished with a client from MN. With bass on our radar I headed to where I had success the other day way up in the Forks.

    Our first spot was way up in the West Fork past the West Fork boat ramp. The water looked perfect, temperature was still 50 degrees with a little current. We fished a 150 yard bank where we caught 6-8 bass and lost a few big girls in just 45 minutes the other day. Today, casting our Tn-rigs, not sniff(what a humbling sport). Then we backed down to the next rocky bank and caught 2 decent bass on Tn-rigs(one keeper and one just short).

    The next few hours we jump around on several of the banks we caught fish the other day and only caught one more! I switched between tn-rig, red deep crank, minnow 3.3(red craw)…nothing seemed to work.

    Half way through the day we moved back into Spring Creek. We fished for one hour and had 0 bites there. I know they were back there with the water clear and 54 degrees, but I could not get them to hit anything.

    Lastly we moved to Stewart Creek and finally got some action. We started near the back boat ramp, fishing only to the rip rap. We caught 6-8 back there on
    tn-rigs and Minnow 3.3 Red Craw and Minnow 3.3 Craw. All the fish were relating to rocks on the bank and isolated in the channel. Our biggest was almost 5lbs caught on a 3.3 Craw in 2ft of water.

    We headed to the marina with a couple to be proud of, but it was a tough day. I thought we would have had more bites with the warmer air temp, water at 50 degrees and front moving in. Wednesday and Thursday I’ll be crappie fishing and then Friday and Saturday(tournament) I’ll be bass fishing!!!!

    We just got out motor back for our john boat and we just fixed up the depth finder. I couldn’t talk my uncle into going out in the nasty weather so I went to bass pro and I met Randy Howell and Chris Lane. I hope I can go after some bass soon!

    Fished for crappie down lake yesterday. When the waves started coming over the back of the boat we came back towards Fate Sanders. I witnessed a weird weather condition about 10:15 in the morning. A 30 mph gust of wind came up the lake and the temp went from 62 to 48 immediately. Never seen anything like it. Needless to say the fishing sucked.

    Brian – Considering the weather, that seems like it was a good day. I launched from Hamilton Creek around noon and fished for all of about an hour before I pulled the plug.

    The water temp on the lower end was 43 degrees and water clarity was probably 1.5 ft.

    I went out of Long Hunter Saturday. Only had a couple hours so I stayed around the Four Corners area. I caught a short fish on Tn-rig between Hurricane Creek boat ramp and the point just up from there. That was the only fish I caught. The water temp was 46 and did not have much visibility until you passed Hopson Pike. Thought water would be a little warmer around Hurricane Creek. Tough day for me.
