Me and mason went out feom 5pm to 730 yesterday evening. Nothing seen at Murrell or around the island. Didn't go anywhere else, we were just out looking around. Nothing to report down. Would prob go up and as others are discussing with the cooler weather, shallower areas or points. Water temp main lake surface @ 78 from 84 of last week. Heading out this afternoon to wet a line bass fishing. Some good reports received yesterday, one being a 7 pounder. That is a monster IMO for GV.

After Remote learning me and Mason headed out for a couple of hours of bass fishing. One bass with little man and then we headed down around the island, ran into some Sandies which were up closer to the top. . Caught about 30 right at 7:30pm. Mom picked up little man so I could do some more bass fishing, Intel from yesterday really had me fired up, and the intel was spot on. Thanks you MR. "B" ..... Fishing buddy was not messing around when he said he had located many good spots.. Fished from 8:15 to 11:15 and only had two bites, and they were good. Throwing a 8" craw worm texas rig on 12lb braided. For the record, I should have been throwing 20lb or better.., First fish was my PB on grapevine, the second fish was my new PB on grapevine ( I really thought the second fish was a catfish because it had some shoulders). Good Blessed me with time spent with Mason, and these two bites.. On the second fish I was marking a waypoint and working the worm with the left arm when I got hammered.. Take care all.. Only fished one spot for sandbass, they are moving around allot.

Cliff Note Version. I was shocked when I got cold this AM, had to grab the jacket.... Sand bass fishing sucked. I caught fish but only 3-4 each time I found some. Bass fished from 4am -11 then went to the beach until 1pm. Fished around but couldn't really find any quality sand bass that wanted to play. Went back to bass fishing around 5 and pulled out at 7:30. Bass fishing is solid, had a good number of solid fish before the sun came up on the boat ramp at Scotts Landing. Fished a 8" craw worm, and a 10" red shad power worm all day. Early the bass were in the 5-8ft range, late afternoon all the fish were right in the 14ft range on the area i was fishing. Last spot I fished, I caught three fish in the same spot with the 10" worm. Was a real treat to finish the day. Highlight of the day, I saw a man driving a Ranger @ 50 hit a wake from a Wakeboat and it launched up into the air. His cover for his motor came loose on the landing. I checked on him and he was ok.. Prop was out of the water about 4 feet..

Caught a pretty nice spot..

Saturday Morning Report:
Good fishing all over. Meadowmere at sun up was great for 30 minutes staying with the birds.
Rock Crusher area was good but had to dig through the short ones. Murrell Point was good till 11 am.

Had to drift fish and use anchor. Wish I had a trolling motor.

Just a note: Minn Kota - Ulterra's suck. $2200 and 3 years old and already having major issues. Taking it in tomorrow to have it looked at.

That is good info, when I launched sunday the white cranes were going crazy near the island. Between the island and the south shore area.. There were three boats up there, and one appeared to be driving around in the middle. Didn't want to deal with the guy in the boat so I headed to murrell to spot check it.. I should have eased up to the cranes working just to check it out. I definitely missed out on that one.. I know I should be looking shallower, but I still am working the deeper stuff for the bigger fish. I see the cranes working just east of murrell all the time, but they are working bait, never pick up any sandies over on that shallower area during the summer time. This would explain allot. I need to focus on the shallower areas, Im showing signs of localitis..
Went out last night at 6pm to 1am and bass fished a spot that I really wanted to go over thoroughly. For the record, I broke my own rule and pulled the net out of the back storage compartment, and assembled it before I started fishing.. I am superstitious on the high spectrum. Got about 8 short strikes/thumps but nothing was ever there afterwards.. So I goose egged last night.. That is hard to say, but I'm ok with it. Man I love to worm fish structure, probably my most favorite thing to do. Rained on me until about 9pm, then was really nice.. Have 6th grade school help today, but heading out again this evening.. Will spend a little time looking shallower for some Sandies.. Anyone know the points that historically support the sandies? I just look for the bait, and try to narrow in on them. Take care all..

Yes shallower early. 10 to 12 ft, but by 8:30 on a sunny day they have moved out to the deeper 20' + structure.
