You know that hot weather equals hot fishing if you have followed AP for very long. As the hit index was busting triple digits last week the big fish started biting and it just coincided with the arrival of two of Angler’s regular customers/friends. For many years now Perry and Brad have made the trek across MO to fish for a few days. During that time we have become good friends and I always try to carve out some time to join them fishing (not as a guide). For the last 30 days, we have seen great numbers of fish caught, but the bigger bites had been scarce. That made a dramatic turn last week as all of our customers began noting good fish caught or lost. Here are a few pictures from the last weeks of fishing. I anticipate that the bite will remain strong through the rest of the summer. The lake is full and the watercolor is coming back as the bloom takes hold. Most of the good fish have been caught on big plastic worms fished slow and deep (7-10 feet).
