Fished another Sunday on the lake, Lake is fishing very good. boated 35+ lost at least 10-15. Largest was about 4lbs had a 5lbr jump off, size was lacking other then those 2.

Started off shallow in the grass on a point near reeds, boated 10 on 3/4 oz rattle traps. Went to the rip rap caught 8 on watermelon candy shaky heads 1 of those on crank bait. Fished the west side Pond dam and caught at least 20 on green pumpkin candy shakey head worms.

Guessing by the amount of boats that stuck around to 12:00 fishing must have been good for all, Game wardens were checking at the boat ramps.

I struggled out there on Sunday, although to be fair I haven't been on the water in well over a month. The first 30 minutes of daylight you could do no wrong. After that they mystified me, got lucky and stumbled into a few offshore. I caught 14 in 4 hours by myself. Two 4lbers and the rest 2lbs or less.

I'm sure I saw you at some point. I was by myself in a black and white skeeter.

I think you were fishing the rocks at one point, not alot of boats out there.

Yes, I deep cranked the rock edge for a ways. Zero luck doing that which is highly unusual.

I was there too. Got there late and stayed longer than I probably should have. Got a few on cranks out deep chasing balls of shad, but then I had a hard time. Hit some of my jig holes and only got pecks from gar and sunfish. The water was 85, up from just a couple days ago. Hoping it cools off some in the next couple of weeks!

They would not hit a crankbait for me, last week tho that was working. In the am most of our trap fish were barely hooked, only one really ate it. We lost 5 in the am prolly because of that.

I had a pile of short strikes in the morning as well. Missed more than I boated. Was the story of the day for me actually which is also highly unusual.

I had a 3:1 ratio of long distance release to fish landed on cranks. Thought it was just me!

I started fishing this lake this year - what a gem of a lake! Granted, I haven't been boating those kind of numbers...but routinely boating some nice 2-4 pounders and I'll take that anytime. Appreciate the post and see ya on the water.

Whenever I need a bass fishing confidence boost, I go to Fayette.

RunTx, In the fall I have had more then a few 75-100 fish days. Best time to go in my opinion, Late Nov, thru spring it starts to get crowded on the weekends.

I was out there yesterday too. Lots of fun in the morning on shallow windblown shoreline. With fish busting, we caught em on a frog and burning a swim jig just off the grass lines. After that shut down, we caught 1 here 1 there mostly on the swim jig. Most consistent being off the rip rap. As usual my sub par offshore skills get put in their place on that lake. We talked to and watched a few folks wailing on them in 20-25', im just never able to get a consistent bite out there doing that. We tried several baits/colors/sizes on drop shots, c-rigs, t-rigs and jigs, but just couldnt get bit. Tons of bait and fish chasing, we just couldnt put together what to throw.

All in all I think we ended up with 15+ fishing from 7 till noon. Partner and I each had a 4# and most fishing were between 2-3#.

We were in a older blue/grey basscat, im sure we saw a few of you guys out there.
