Fished Fayette yesterday with Doc from daybreak til 5pm. Water temp was 79-81 degrees & down around 6 inched from last week. The bite for sunfish has slowed significantly, but we still managed to get 135 total...4 bass, 7 or 8 Rios & the rest sunnies. The bluegill & Red Ear have all but totally disappeared from our 3 favorite spots, but we managed to locate a few virgin off shore colonies that were holding some really good quality fish. It's real nice to have a good bird dog like Doc, who can sniff them out when the bite is slow. Almost all fish caught on Gulp Alive minnows, but Doc did catch a few on a small crankbait. The countdown is on, now that the water temp is dipping below 80...In a few weeks I think the season will be over for sunfish...On the bright side, the bass bite seems to be picking up. The fall is a great time to be on the water on Fayette as the trees start to turn color...Just hoping we don't have a fish kill like last year...so far so good... We also found a "Bandit" trapped in the trash bin & notified the authorities...hopefully to be set free soon...[Linked Image]

Thanks Curt, Curtis & Chuck...Boat traffic was pretty light...only a few boats out. I know we are spoiled rotten from such a great year ! But it is still quite a shock going from 50-100 fish off each of the main areas almost every trip, down to 0-10 fish. fish

It’s time for the perch to heal their lips and for perch men to switch gears.

It’s been a fabulous sunfish season with many good times to be thankful for !

I’m beginning to detect the scent of some black and white bass in the cooling air. grin

Vogey you guys have had one GREAT year of catching some very BIG sunfish. I have enjoyed everyone of your post and videos. You Sir have made one difficult year a GREAT year. Fishing wise I would think this year would be very hard to beat. Nicely done.




Side Note: Is the upgrade to Oak Thicket completed?

Thanks Gitter...I believe the upgrades are mostly done...but not sure of all their plans. I can say that the boat slips now have cleats & rubber padding installed. The reeds have been sprayed around the launch area & some of the cabins, that will make it easier for bank fishermen in the future.

Thanks Steve! I have also noticed this past week that I have had my fishing spots just about all to myself. Hope it stays that way for awhile. thumb

I went to Fayette today. Caught 4 bass early and then nothing. Bluegill bite was non existent. Saw a ton of fish deep on the Livescope but they were not interested. There were several large bait balls that were out in the deeper water and I could see fish come up and smack them. But they were not interested in what I was throwing. Probably next trip I will break out the jigging spoons and go after them that way. Steve, I think you are right that the shallow Fayette bluegill bite is taking a rest until next spring.
