Almost half way thru September already. This year has flown by. Been a weird summer for me. Most of my regular customers know I had to have elbow surgery in August, which kept me off the water for 3 weeks. Surgery went well and should make all the difference for me. It doesn't hurt to cast now like it did. Just glad to be back working. Those 3 weeks at home was not fun!!!
The lake is in great shape right now. We are just a couple inches high and the water clarity is pretty good. Fishing overall is pretty good too. Just the black bass are little moody. One day can be good, and the next not as much. There are a lot of smaller schooling bass, that helps with our numbers, but some days they just don't school as well. Still catching some nice fish too, just not too many. I am starting to see some grass too and that is really going to help the overall bass fishing.
The sand bass are stacked up on the end of ridges/points out on the main lake. 30-35 feet have been key. There are a ton of crappie on the corp brush piles. Just have to weed thru a bunch of unders to get at the keepers.
