I caught a nice channel cat Saturday night around 10:30pm in the small cove to the right of the main recreation area. I used chicken livers. Fish was about 18 inches and about 7 or 8 lbs.

Slow in late June and early July fishing from the boat. We tried everything from early morning and into the evening. Patterns tried: General trolling everything from Alabama rigs with various types of soft baits, Spinners, every lure in our boxes and picked up nothing. Casted the North shore and West shores early morning with no hits. Casting onto the banks I tried, small/large single and double blade spinners, fishing slow with 4” and 6” worms (texas rig), shallow and deep running crank baits. Last (2) trips we boated two fish 30” pike and 17” small mouth both from the east shore line against the rocks.

Pike and Large mouth are gettin' active here at the end of spawning.Been getting lots of bites.We've been using brite green or yellow spinners with lots of bites in the grassy coves on the eastside.Using Shad Raps, running them along the muddy and gravel bottoms from the shore.You don't need a boat even for the walleye.Look for lake grass near the shore and drop ur lures and run them into the mud.You WILL go home with some good size Pike and Largemouth.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
