Fished Fayette today with Doc...We fished pretty much the whole day & ended up with around 20 bass...3 nice catfish, 4 tilapia & around 25 smallish bluegill. Water temp was mid to high 80s in the discharge area & mid 70s everywhere else. Water level was around a foot low as compared to summer levels. Bass were caught on Tsunami 2" swimbaits, Culprit 6 inch worms & Gulp Alive 1" minnows. Two of the catfish were caught on Gulp Alive 1" minnows & the other one was caught on worms. All of the Tilapia were caught on worms & around half of the bluegill were caught on worms & the other half on the Gulp Alives...Beautiful day to be on the water ! [Linked Image]

Tom...We did not keep anything to eat, but thought about it with the catfish. Just fyi...we had a hot flurry of activity in the trees between 4 & 5pm. We both got broke off (on back to back casts) with good fish (using the deep trees to their advantage). They moved into the trees late, because they were not there in the morning.

Chuck..Yes...the bluegill were around the same depts...8-12 feet with a few a little shallower.

Curt...It really has. There are definite advantages to having a "home lake" . I have fished this lake since opening day in the 1970s and know it pretty well...however still learn something new almost every trip.

Gitter ...I like Feb for BIG Bass & March April for numbers...May can be awesome as well, but starting mid March I am pretty much converting over to the sunfish extravaganza...

The bite was slower for me than last week for sure. It did not pick until the afternoon. I found fish where they were nasty week it they were not interested. I boated 12 bass and lost about that many as well. I fished some for bluegills and they definitely were not interested. I saw two guides with afternoon trips so based on that and when I was getting bites, the afternoon bite was more productive.

The "Masters of Fayette" strike again. Good job guys. Glad to see some Bluegills still making the catch. It will be interesting to see how long this goes as it gets colder. cheers

It was great to get out on the water Monday with Steve. Had a great time. Weather was fabulous. I actually caught 3 tilapia on BOC, my first time to catch tilapia on bait. I caught 3 in 3 casts and then no more ! Not sure what's up with that. We caught some bluegill but a shadow of what we were doing earlier this year. Still fun tho ! Some nice leaf color change starting around the lake.

Steve. They were fishing offshore mainly. They seem to mostly fish CRigs with their clients because it’s easy for clients. They don’t use baits that cost a lot of money.
