Its October 31st and the high for the day will be 88 degrees. We got a brief taste of fall weather a week ago and it started the fall transition and things was looking like they would be ready to bust loose and then the heat is back and it seems the bass are in limbo. Not saying that we are not catching fish its just the size that we like, now we are catching anywhere from 20-60 fish a day some are 8 inches to 4 pounds , you just never know how big the next bite will be…. I guess that is whats keeping us on edge. Water temps 67-76 thats morning to dark
Caught a Guntersville Small Mouth last week I was just as excited as I was the 1st one I ever caught.
Here is whats going on out there: They are on the move back under the mats and blowing on a frog but still not really taking it under … its still fun but reeling them in is better . Grass lines in 5-7 feet of water has been pretty good for spinnerbaits and lipless cranks. Still not seeing the big ones like I want to but im sure with the warm weather they are stuck in the limbo stage waiting for it to get cold.
Here are some pics from the last two weeks.
