Trying to write this post i'm at a loss. No doubt this flood has been crippling to say the least. Best winter ever for trophy fish then turned into worst spring we can recall. This lake rose so fast and both rivers pounded us with mud. We fish along the mudline with under average results then RAMBO fishing worked for 5 days then poof gates open/spillway goes over. No joke the entire lake known as TEXOMA is red and mud going thru floodgates and over spillway. Lake fishing spotty at best so tried the river...i was not the 1st but around the 3rd to do it. My first couple days the red river was clearer and mud had not reached spillway yet. Fishing was good enough on top and sassy to make a trip it was cool. Caught some in the trees so then some guys started tying up to the trees so i found some down in another eddie but mud ruined that hole. Then when the mud came,plus more and more boats came,clouds went away and my trips turned into 2-7 fish outings with only a small window for me to catch em on topwater. One thing before the boats and mud i was having some luck putting boat in an eddie the cast into current let it dump your spool the aggressive action of the sassy back to boat would get a strike. Then after it got crowded several times we caught lines and no fish so i was like this cant work. Guys sinking trucks lots of getting stuck and boats getting damaged
Then my tilt and trim went out and i noticed all this...
that scratch bow to stern...under water culvert pipe in the pitch black

May and June 2 of our busiest months and its just plain tough moving and canceling all these charters. The few days we are getting out last 2 weeks are met with little to no luck. We are offering all trips to move back unless they want to go with a warning that we may zero out. Heard whispers of some action but 2 of last 3 times out i have zeroed. Either me or jimmy been checking every 2-3 days but only getting fish if they get on a feed. Seems you find something working one day then its like it never happened. If the school up and feed you can get some fish on top.sassy or slab otherwise we cant get em to strike at any lures. Lake is messed up.
I have more videos of river but why bother its depressing!
