It appears to me that the week of overcast days and rain, did little to help the fishing; in fact the best time we had on the water was when the sun came out more towards the midday; strange for sure but somewhat typical as the month of August progresses to late August. The good news is the water temperature seems to have dropped some; there is icky dead looking grass appearing in many areas of the lake and this is generally a good sign for the future or the end of August.
I always start to see great improvement when the shorter days start to cool the water temperature; the best of the fall is close. Spent a lot of time looking for the SPRO frog bite and I must say there is frog action already indicating that the fall top water bite will get better shortly. My Tight-Line swim jig appears to have dropped this past week, maybe we will see that pick back up also. Work slow, look for bait fish and work an area thoroughly when you get a bite as the fish are grouped up; so when you find them don’t leave them.
Come fish with me I have days and guides available to fish with you; no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water. I have licensed USCG experienced guides and we can meet most requests to fish when needed.
