Myself and two fishing Legends Fred aka Rionator and Jamie aka J-Moe fished Decker Lake (Walter E Long Reservoir) this past Saturday. We fished from daylight till 1:30pm and we left them biting. We caught some HUGE Bluegill,Redear, Hybrid Sunfish, Redbreast, and rounding out the catch was a nice five pound Channel Cat. We caught well over 100 fish! Myself and Fred were using ultralight tackle while Jamie used his fly rods. We found plenty of BIG FISH on the edges of Hydrilla beds and on grass beds in 10 to 14 feet of water. Fred was using Gulp Alive Minnows,Chartreuse in color. He also had good results using White. Fred was using a drop shot method. I was using worms with a basic bottom technique. Jamie was using various sinking flies. It appeared that the fish were fixing to spawn. Most of the fish were well over a half pound with several going over a pound. Fish were all in the 8 to 10 inch range with most in the nine inch range. We had two in the 10" range. All fish were released to fight again. Fishing with buddies Fred and Jamie. It just don't get any better! fish

Great report & fish ! Were the fish bunched up where if you caught one you caught several, or scattered where you caught a few everywhere ? Also, were you guys fishing the southwest arm or northeast arm of the lake ? I have never been there but want to go in a few weeks...Thanks...

It was a great time Chuck. I was thrilled to get a chance to fish with the legend, Rionator. Thanks for inviting me along Fred. I learned a lot about Decker.

I was planning at fishing this last Friday on Decker. However bad luck struck and I was not able to get the boat off the trailer. Trim motor went out and could not get the transom saver off. Wasted two hours of drive time and the $10 for the electronic entrance fee. Got a new motor coming and will be on the lake this coming Friday Lord willing. I am ready to boat some big ones like this. Thanks for the report and tight lines guys.
