The summer pattern on Whitney is set and it will last about 6 weeks or so, till the lake turns over. Catching a lot of numbers. Most are the fish from the 2013 stocking and there are plenty of them. Busy busy busy! The hotter it gets the better this bite gets, all on artificial baits no getting up at 2am throwing a net. I haven't cleaned a fish since last Friday that had a shad or any bait in its belly. Reaction strike is the way to go, or at least it is for me, this year and for years now! If you have been thinking about coming to Whitney now is the time. The Corp opened the ramp at the Loafer bend day use park at the dam this past weekend. Others should open soon. A few pics from the past few days.
This one is TFF's own Learningtofish and family.
You ought to come get ya some!
This last picture was a very special trip. Childhood friend that I haven't seen in years, Mike Wiltfong of "WILD Fang Martial Arts" and family came out and fished with me. After all the pressure from the weekend I was afraid the bite might be a little slow, took about an hour to find the fish. They hadn't moved far and in shallow water. It was crazy, 2 to 3 rods going down at a time, kept this old man busy!
