One Big One Did Not Escape
July was very kind to us. The weather was cool by summer standards and regular showers have kept the lake full and running water. The weekend of the 18th was particularly good for a pair of anglers who each boated fish over 5 lbs, one that weighed 9 lbs. That fish brings us into August with six fish over 8 lbs this season. On the 19th I fished for 45 minutes while I went out to check on my AP guests. I caught 4 bass; one dink, one 2lb, one 3lb, and a 5lb. Most importantly, three of the fish were caught on a crankbait, which could be the beginning of a hot crankbait bite. Last weekend I was on vacation, but tomorrow I will be out on the water guiding and hope to confirm that the bass are indeed ready to jump on that big crank! August-September bookings are relatively light so contact us if you are interested in getting in one more fishing trip before school gets started!
