Been a little while since I posted some pics and info about the lake. Just got home from a great vacation in Hawaii and taking the time to finally update the site. Amy's parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary and took the family with them. What a great gift for us. Reese had a ball. Even got to do some fishing while there and caught my first tuna. What an awesome animal. Here are a couple pics. The first one you can see just how big it was. It was almost as long as I am tall. Our guide said it was a 140lb class tuna. It took us both to drag it over the side of the boat. Man was I beat after fighting it, and Amy and Blake even helped out for a bit. The old fishing elbow was sure barking after that.
The lake is back to normal level finally. This year it has been up for most of the year. At least it wasn't closed, like last year because of the high water. I do believe again this year, we had a great spawn because of the high water. The next few years should be fun. If this fall is anything like last fall, the fishing should be very good. The black bass are in there summer haunts right now. The bigger fish are out deep, but can still get numbers up shallow around the flooded willows. Those bushes can really hold some fish. The white bass are doing there thing. This is the time of year to get on the schooling action. Here are a few pics from the last month or so.
