    Water Temp: 56

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: On water at day break and headed toward the east end of the lake to fish second ramp and tulles. Got one about 13" on a rip bait. Pitched senkos, drop shot and jigs to tulle clumps with no luck.
    Moved to Island points and still could not find them or get bit, finally got one about 4 lbs on a texas rig bold blue gil worm. Slow day for us but others caught them pretty good. Tournament won with over 21 lbs. In the last half hour noticed all of the boats were in bunches out on the island tops and structure.

    Tips: Seemed like everyone was fishing dead slow, we fished as slow as we could go but I still think we were fishing too shallow. Seems like 30 feet was the ticket.

    Report: Had a great day with Guide Pete Marino. Had a great day learning how to look for active biting fish. Pete worked really hard on putting the pattern together. Once we found the active biting fish it was game one for my cousin and brother-in-law. We caught at least 40 fish. all fish were healthy and chunky. we brought in a few 4 1/2 - 5's and the rest were all 2 - 3 1/2lbs. Pete taught me some valuable info that i will be taking back to my home waters.

    we fished water from 8' all the way out to 30'

    Tips: If your looking or a good guide Pete Marino is worth it!

The Bass action was not bad as usual used purple and silver worms with no weight and did well cought 11 and 9 were keepers our largest was 4.7lbs. For thoses of you who like Carp fishing the guy next to us was pulling in 30-50lbs carp one after another feeding in the bass beds about 2-8ft deep behind the small island in the south east corner of the lake. Talked to a hand full of fishermen between the large island and the small island and the blue gill were bitting well.

    Report: well to start my day off i got to the launch ramps at about 10 and a whole mexican family was taking showers in the lake. So that gave me a bad image. Then while i was around the island i was close to the shore and right there in the open two black people were having sex on the beach!! So i moved out of there fast!!!! So i go to the other side hoping to land some fish.... and a boat load of mexicans came by and one of them was hanging off the side of the boat taking a dump. this lake is terrible.... its extremly bad....and over populated with wetbacks..

    Water Temp: 80

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: Headed out for a day on the water before she is too low to launch. Started in the east end with spooks and had a few fish right away. We even had a double at one point. After the sun hit the water we headed to rockclimbers with no luck. Headed back the east end and threw at busting fish for over an hour.. Only a few takers on tailspins and nothing on topwater. A good day of fun fishing is good for the soul

    Tips: Nothing specific but fishing busting fish is about as fun as it gets. But throw topwater early and look for the bait as the sun gets higher

    Tips: Fish carolina rig with a long leader, watch your line when flylining your sinkos. Good luck and good fishing!
