Fished it Friday, man was it “off” compared to how it normally fishes. We still managed a fair day, but I noticed a couple of things I’ve never seen out there before. 100 boats on a Friday and 80 on a Thursday before school even gets out for Christmas break. So awesome on a weekday to have people pull up 30 yards in front of you and dropping the trolling motor like it’s no big deal. I expect that on the weekends, bummer deal it’s happening on weekdays too.

South end of the lake was turning over. Foam and nasty ness floating all over the place down there. Really had the fish in a funk. Mid lake to upper lake were definitely better. Never seen this on a power plant lake before during the winter time.

For the first time ever out there we caught some seriously sickly looking fish. In about the worst shape I’ve ever seen fish that were still alive. Typically we seem to catch fish that are super healthy and full of vigor.. some of these didn’t even fight, just bit and gave up. Caught a few of these from all sections of the lake from the dam (aka the parking lot) all the way to the river. I’ve only been fishing this lake for about 4 years, had plenty of tough days where the bite was off but never have I seen sick looking fish like this. Curious if any of you have seen the same.

All in all we ended up doing best throwing SK 3xd’s in 32-35ft of water and crashing it into tree tops that were 8-10 ft down.

I am done out there for the year I think. Between business and not wanting to deal with the s show its turned into I'll just chase crappie or something for the next 3 months. And yes, we caught some skinny looking fish last week.

Fayette County is in similar condition. I’ll be chasing some coastal fish and other options until it’s had a chance to settle down a bit and maybe ramp up for spring.

I’ve been out there 6-7 times this year. Today was really good for me. I caught the better one( 4.70) on a wacky rig while we were all staging waiting on fog. Then I caught a few good ones on a shaky head. Then the morning bite went rogue for a bit. Finally found the good ones again on windy points, dragging a cotton candy/chartreuse lizard on a c rig. Boat was in 35 FOW, and fish were coming in around 25-30FOW

The lake is a [censored] show for sure. I’m starting to think that better than 80% of boat owners really are pretty clueless about the day in/day out routine of launching/driving/loading a boat. The boaters nowadays also don’t give a [censored] about where they are going. I had one idle between me and a point, as I was dragging my bait and line under his boat. I yelled at the two dudes, and they acted like they didn’t understand. But they heard me. And they watched me catch a 3-1/2 from under their Blue/Silver Nitro Z21. I guess either they were SCARED to get the boat on plane away from the shore, for fear of that they might fall out, or they were graphing to see what I was fishing. I told them to stay there, their boat was helping the bite. Idiots.

When your Chevy blows its transmission on the hill....roll back out of the way. It makes for a long wait when your right in the middle of the road. Same goes for the Escalade that couldn’t get their FX up the hill in the afternoon. Why would you drive your wife’s soccer truck to Squaw?

You are correct about clueless boaters

found the key to the problem in this situation. 70-75% of the time this is the explanation. Nitro/Tracker are notorious for this behavior. Certainly Not all, but many.


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

Not a brand thing. One of the nicest dudes today was in a Red Silver Tracker. He was bank busting and I was c rigging. We made small talk as we fished past each other. Totally polite. He asked if he could take the inside. I gave him the whole bank.
