Fish were pretty active today on Fayette...Met Tomrom in the parking lot at 7 am at Oak Thicket...launched there in hopes of avoiding the buzzards....and it worked...no damage this week. I fished until 4 pm, but Tom left earlier. Most of the bigger fish came between 2 & 4 pm, which seems pretty standard for Fayette. Lake was pretty crowded until after 1 pm..I think the fish know when most people leave. clap Water temp was mid 70s in most areas of the lake & 90 at the discharge. Very foggy with light winds most of the day & very chilly til late afternoon. Ended up with around 20 bass, 2 catfish & 15-20 bluegill. Got some really nice bass today with the biggest one going a hair under 6 lbs. Caught the 2 biggest almost back to back on a Ned rig, using a 2.5" Gulp Alive minnow (black shad color) on the jig head. Also caught bass on the Tsunami swimbait & my old standby Culprit worms. Most of the bluegill were in around 10 feet of water very close to where I found them last week. The strange thing is that I caught 5 red ear this week...1st time in 2 months I have caught one of those. Tight lines... [Linked Image]

Steve. I did not leave, I went over to the other side of the lake. I fished to 5:30. I agree that the fish did not get cranked up until after 2. Most of the fish I caught were in the two lb range. Had a real hog by Fayette standards get off after I missed lipping it twice. My fault because I have a net and was to lazy to get it out. But a lot of nice fish were boated. I quit counting after 40. Let me know if you go again this week or next. I will try to show you another secret spot haha. Oh yeah, the fishing tables said it was going to be a bad day.

Thanks Chuck...Tom...Not going again this week, and if it gets cold next week like they are saying...may not go next week either. But either way...keep that other super secret spot under your hat & we will hit it soon...

Thanks for the replies Pot Licker & popr...
Curtis...Dang good question ? I think we will be caching a "few"...smaller fish like the ones I have been catching but that's just a guess.
Gitter...This is, after all, the Bluegill section of the forum...so will try & post some pics if lucky enough to catch a few. I will continue to spend around 20 % of the day searching for these guys until March when the hunt goes full tilt sunfish...
