Fished this a.m. for eyes with limited success.Fished in 6-14 fow jigging,pulling yellow spinner with crawlwers and leeches and pulled a few rapalas.Caught 3 eyes all on spinner with a crawler,tried leeches and jig and leeches and spinners with leeches with no eye success.There were some very,very nice sunnies that would hit anything you would throw at them in 8-14 fow just to the east of the grassy island on the north side.The only problem I had was trying to keep the sunnies off the hook long enough to maybe catch more eyes,although the pannies were the nicest Ive caught in quite some time.Tried for eyes also from 2nd to third point with no luck,with some fish on the bottom in 14-20 fow but they could have been those good old sheephead.Some people were also fishing off second point but all I saw get caught were sunnies.The most action on the lake was around the grassy island in 6-14 fow and it seemed most if not all were getting a few eyes and many pannies.Hope this helps.

I haven't fished Washington for years. Where abouts is the Grassy Island? I would probably land the boat on the north access. Any information is really appreciated.

Thanks,

When you dock your boat at the north landing hang a left or go east about 300-400 yards and you will see the weeds above the water.I would fish your way there as the fish could be anywhere along the shoreline. I would work from landing to weeds about 8-15 fow and you should find the fish.The sunnies still have eggs in some females.

more like huge boats and boonie hats........but ur right on the polo pants part......haha i know cause i used to live there too. Bulrushes in the west end of the lake and the marsh area up by westwood marina have some monster bass swimming arond. firetiger raps got em last time but that was a month ago.....points got some bass too but its been awhile since i seriously fished for bass so best advice i can give anyone is prefish as much as possible. good luck!!!!!

Bassboy, your story reminds me of my brother and I. We go out shore fishing together a lot. He is from the old school and ground fishes with whatever bait he's chosen. He throws it out and lets it sit and sit and sit. Me, on the other hand have to be trying this, that and the other thing. Well, You can guess that he outfishes me 9 times out of 10!!!!!

Good luck everyone.

Maybe. If your tactic dosent produce dont waste anymore time than u have too. GO TO THE MARINA an throw alot of baits around in the marsh there. yesterday we got two hawgs....a 3 1/2 pounder and a chunky 4 pounder no kidding. the bigger one came on a ratl trap and the smaller one on a spinnerbait. whatever you do match the forage. anything that looks like sunnies, perch, shad ect. I donno about crawfish but that pattern seems to be working too. Also give squirels nest point a try. we picked up smaller fish there but alot of em. If you have no clue where im talking about stop in at either westwood marina and baitshop or reel fish and tackle in madison lake. They both have maps and wil be happy to point these spots out to you. Good Luck!!!!!!

HAHA It happens all the time i like to think by sheer luck. but thats only an exuse for those of us who cant stomach failure or just plain clumsieness or lack of knowlege of your quarry. it dosent happen too much too me anymore but when it does its hard to stomach. my granny may she rest in peace always outfished us all cause her shakes were so bad that all she had to do was hold a jig over the side of the boat. none of us no matter how hard we tried to imitate her could get these fish so i learned the hard way that there are ppl you run across who will and can routinely kick your butt in fishing. But also fishing should not be a contest. A pretty sunset or having time to solve lifes problems makes fishing all the more worthwile.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
