8/4 report

6 posts in this topic

That rain this morning musta keep alotta fisher people off the river today, cause usually there are a few reports already posted by now. Walli1, are you ok? Usually your the person who gets the ball rolling and starts the thread.I am one of those guilty of wimping out too. I had the boat on the truck and was loading up the g/f when it started drizzling at about 5:15 this morning. She didn't seem to excited about getting wet that early in the am., so we went back to bed. And yes, I am using her as my excuse for not being down there today.

Hopefully I'll be drowneding a crawler early tomorrow morning, I can't live for another week without my dose of river fishing.

Sorry I let you guys down on the fishing report but there was a very important matter that needed to be taken care of this morning so I couldn't make it out, now that problem is out of the way and let the fishing began!! cool.gif I'll be on the water the same time as always, should be a great morning, rain or shine I'll be out, rain has never kept me from therapy and after a day like today I need some boat time!! smile.gif

Well that was just what I needed! What a great morning to be on the river, It was so quiet out there this morning, I cherish that alone time where its just me and God, should of left the river by 8:45 because thats what time I was out of bait, two 18 count crawlers, knew I should of bought another one! tried to catch eyes on fake bait for over a hour and nothing, caught a mixed bag this morning, along with four eyes the biggest being 17, all eyes were caught in 24-32 fow lindy riggen.

I too enjoyed the extended quiet time on the river on Sun. am. It was atleast 10:45 before the wakes started toss'en me. I still had 0 luck with the 'eyes, but did find 3 decent saugers 14-18" and a bunch of bass, drum, sunnies, and cats. Which where the first cats I caught all year. I also pulled a old Zebco33 and pole up. It put up one heck of a fight, but I managed to land it with 8lb. line. That was the only thing kept. The fish seem to be in very concentrated area, no more than 100yds. or less. Lindys without a spinner and baited w/ a worm seemed to be the preferance. I found fish from 17-30 fow and on various type of bottom.

The fish I found were in the soft basin, nothing there except a mass of bait fish up off the bottom and the eyes were below, classic! I found them in the same areas that produced prior years, This weekend I once again will be taken two green horns out from my church, so if you see me tying lines and baiting hooks and not fishing much you'll know I'm having a tough go at it! The pressure will be on to produce and teach, should be interesting and fun!!

It sounds like you take alotta new anglers out, thats a very nice thing you are doing. And from the sounds of it, your guests are learnin from Mr. Consistancy. I think I might discourage more than encourage, with my spotty success.
