Man oh man the fishing the last couple of weeks has been really up and down. Two days ago I took a good friend and client out and we fish from 630 to 1045 not one bite zero nada zilch I said forget this we went back out yesterday evening and we caught 8 or 9 better but still really tough. Only my 4th time to zero out in 21 years...PAINFUL
On a couple of days we found the birds working and we really bang them but most days total grind.About the only true pattern I've seen materialize is if you're not at the right place at the right time when they group up and feed you can either A.TROLL B. TREEL C. CAST FOREVER.We know most of fish are up the rivers doing the wild thing and the fish we are seeing most days are the smaller males with some decent overs mixed in and every now and then some big chunky females but for the most part they're doing what they need to do right now. during the spawn we usually can find some mid size and smaller fish up on or along the flats trying to spawn but those fish have been non-existent the last week for some reason a lot of fish in the main lake want to stay in deeper water and are not running shallow but that can change any day. I expect them to bust loose any second! I'll add some pictures later or tomorrow night cameras on the boat.
