Have not seen a post on Medina in weeks.. I have heard that it has been really slow?

Anybody heard or experienced anything lately? Gonna be in the neighborhood this weekend and wondered if I should drag the boat or stick to dove hunting..

I think the pattern has changed up quite a bit, but the story is still the same. Plenty of fun to be had if you aren't concerned with size. I'll be out there tomorrow and let you know how we do.

Also, be aware it is 11.3' low right now so there are several new danger spots that weren't an issue before. A new point sticks way out into the main lake near the mouth of elm creek that was always a popular running spot being the most concerning. As well as staying near the channel if you go up to the mouth of the river. It is all pretty obvious in the light, but if you launch really early just be aware.

I fished with a buddy out there Sunday and easily caught 150. We had 5 that were above 2 pounds. The biggest was right at 2.5 pounds. Everything else was 10oz to a pound. The biggest one was caught on a plastic worm on the main lake in maybe 15'.

It was the most fun I've had fishing in a long time. The bass were chasing fry that were maybe .5" and at times the water was black with them. As soon as the cloud cover would come in the bass would start busting the water. It happened all day until we left at 1300. I've never seen anything like it before. We threw roster tails, cranks and white grubs.

We dropped one of the bass in the boat while trying to unhook it and I ended up picking up 8 fry that it spit out. They might be too full to even bite a hook next week if they keep that up. laugh

Looking forward to hearing if they were still biting. I'd like to take the kids out there this weekend. Even my little one can throw and reel. It should be fun.

The bite was definitely still on. Caught a lot of fish on topwater which was a blast. Biggest was 3.11 with several keepers and constant action on dinks. We fished all over the lake from the river to the dam just doing some exploring, location didn't seem to matter much.

I guess we just suck at fishing because we had a really slow day.. We fished Saturday morning from 7:30 till 11:30 and we boated eight fish.. We missed a few. But they were not biting for us.. Threw mostly plastics and crankbaits of various descriptions.. But what I threw the last few trips did not produce..

I'll get em next time..

Haha I guess Gary and I suck at fishing there as well hmmm We were in our own individual boats and the bite was way off yesterday, so it wasn't just you, just so you know roflmao The bite was good Thursday, but not the weekend. Outing was good for me as I found out I needed to fix something with the upcoming tourney this weekend. You'll get em next time !!

I was out there on Monday, fished from about noon to 5, got off the water just as the thunderstorm hit. I found the fish schooled up in a cove near the dam, with wind blowing baitfish straight into the back of the cove. Had a blast! Caught one on a Vixen, second cast, thought the topwater bite was going to be wide open (cloud cover all day). That turned out to be my only topwater fish. Switched to an Alabama rig, with 3.8" keitechs. Couldn't keep the fish off! I had a couple double hookups, and one triple but the third fish shook the hook right at the boat. I even caught a white bass and crappie on the A rig. I also caught a few on a single Keitech. All the fish were schooled up between 7-25 feet in the water column, but stayed hovered over the creek channel. Didn't catch anything close to the shorline. Made the mistake of leaving fish to find fish, and traveled up river. Caught one on a dropshot and one on a swimbait. I tried to duplicate the pattern. Fished other coves with the wind blowing right up the gut, but couldn't find the fish. Realized my mistake of leaving good fish and finished my day off back at the first spot. Probably caught about 50 fish, nothing big, but a fun day.

The fall bite is on, tie on a moving bait of your choice they are getting ready for the winter and fattening their bellies.
*********
Wanted to mention there will be a one day tourney this Saturday 10/21, posted under Tournaments. This tournament is in memory of a military working dog named Ares. Ares served his country well, he deployed 3 times and always brought his handler home safely. Come out and fish and support the MWD's flag

Okay it is probably one of those things that has been beat to death, but am I the only one who starts humming "Funky Cold Medina" when you see the title of this thread? Come on I know I am not the only one.

I mean really, "What's up with Medina?".......

Sorry I had to.
