    Just thought I would share my report for today. I don’t get to fish a ton, mostly weekends, but I’m going to try and do a better job of sharing my results. This forum has been a huge help to me so I’m hoping my sharing will spur others to share. Sometimes I feel like I just wait around for Brian to post!

    Fished today from 7:00-12:00 with 2 friends who,don’t fish much so I spent a big part of the day trying to get them unstuck or positioned to make good casts. Since they were inexperienced I kept the lures simple, and we fished rattle traps all day. Chrome with blue, and white seemed to do the best.

    Started in the first cove on the right after Hobson pike bridge and caught one smallmouth on the left bank. Next I ran up to Suggs creek and fished around a few islands. I’ve never been up there before, so was sort of fishing blind. The wind was so strong today that being out in the open and unprotected was too hard to fish. Didn’t catch nothing here, but I plan on fishing this area more.

    Next ran down to some coves across from Fate Sanders, but again, the wind was a problem. 0 fish.

    Went down to Stewart’s Creek, which has been my best spot all summer. Caught fish on the right bank going towards the boat ramp. Would see fish busting bait and throw up in them and usually do pretty good. All in all about 12 largemouth & 1 smallmouth. Probably 2 keepers total.

    Wind was a real problem. I felt like if we didn’t get back up in some protected spots we didn’t have a chance. Another thing I nick, I rally didn’t see any bait anywhere except back in Stewart’s Creek. I’m wondering if the bait doesn’t group up so much in high wind?

    Thanks for the report! They do school up in the wind, but this cooler temp kept most of them down. Throughout October and November you will see a lot of schooling fish on surface.

    Thanks Brian, I’ll be sure to be looking out for that. Do you still throw rattle traps when they do this, or something topwater like a spook?

    Both. And sometimes anything they will bite, including the kitchen sink
