July Guide Trip
I just got off the water from a half-day guide trip. Water temp was 91 and the heat index was 130 when we quit at 12:30. The guests had some topwater action first thing and then it was plastic worm time. Both father and son adapted to dragging Texas rigged worm through the grass and boated 16 bass by the time we called it quits. The lake is still full of good circulation in and out. The algae bloom is hot and the bite remains strong so long as there are fishermen willing to stay after it. The weatherman has promised us some relief next week, and I doubt the slightly cooler temps or rain will change the fishing much. August and September bookings are coming in pretty fast. Openings will disappear even faster if the weather cools a bit.
