Pre Tournament Report

Cooler weather soon to get here. Fishing looks to be a lot better than we expected.

There are a lot of trout around which will be moving in as weather cools. I have reports of a lot of small fish with good mixes of slot fish. You have to move around to locate but when you find them the fun begins. Baits of choice have been 17 and 18MRs, Gulp and my favorite DOA. Not just the shrimp but their CAL baits and Heads are excellent. The picture trout was one of many caught dock fishing; what can be done from a boat????

Rock fishing is great already. Excellent topwater bites in am and pm working structure and docks. Jigging and casting the reef and bridges is also producing well. My baits of choice are Storm Chug Bugs and Rapala Skitter walks for topwater and Gulp with DOA CALS and MY Rockin’ Wobble combo being my favorite.

Had a great trip Tuesday targeting the rock with the Mack brothers. May was there some trash talking going on. Little brother Tony said he was the fisherman and old brother Mike was just a dreamer. Well, 1st out the gate throwing chub bugs in the stump, on 1st cast , Michaels hooked up. A slot rock, his first. Not many cast later, another 22 inch fish. Tony was catching ...... Left there and hit the reef and bridges. Not sure how many we caught, releasing most, and keeping them a nice limit.

Conditions should only improve into the fall so get out a go.

If you need a good guide, I can recommend 1 or 2, myself being #1 in my book! Call me the target these fish throughout the winter too.
