Tough Days On Big O

Recommended Posts

Wanted to fish carmens tourny last week but woke up late, so just fished for about 6 hours with little to show for it....Went again Sunday outta slims and fished almost all day in and around long point, got more chews but still little quality, would have weighed about 12 pounds. I think they are still on the outter edges but every weekend the wind is blowing like 20mph and just dont wanna deal with it.

Ran into mikey ballz at the ramp on sunday and on the lake, he had the same experience, told me took 24 and change to win busters sun but i heard 4th was only around 12 pounds.....dont know about sunday.

If anyone has anymore insight would love to hear it. Uncle coming down for thanks giving and wants to fish in the new boat but just thinking of going to the glades with the kinda fish im catching up there. Any suggestions would be greatly app.

Tough time of year, fronts etc.. I don't know what their doing, I'm wondering if their way back. Another big cold spells on its way, that has to bring them in.

Iv been struggling as well cant find any big fish. I haven't been going as much with the Thanksgiving coming, but last week i was up the for 3 days and found about 15 lbs a day.

I just watched a couple of this dudes videos mikey ballz, he's a trip. Is he on here?

Pretty much the same story...had a club T out of Clewiston and one team had 19, everyone else 8 to 12. We caught lots of small keepers but no difference makers. If fish can be puzzled (?) I think the water coming up fast and now going down has them confused. We ought to be in pretty clear cut pre-spawn mode for a good percentage of fish but they are not located or acting that way IMO.

Actually Dwight, you are my secret weapon, I usually find them right before you come down! Don't forget my DAIWA!

Mikeyballs is on here. I fished with him a little over a month ago on the lake. Watched him punch up a 6+ and a 7+...smooth as silk. Great guy and all around fisherman. His You Tube fishing channel, "MikeyBallzFishing" is sick! I have picked up some great tips from watching his vids.

My last trip there with Jack was pretty poor also. Some of the guides seem to think that Sandy ripped up the South end pretty good and will take a little more time to recover. I think when it turns on, it's gonna be lights out for awhile...

From what I watched he knows how to flip and pitch. Anyone wondering how its done watch him, thats how you do it.

Mikey is a flippin machine. I've been bugging him for awhile (as others have I'm sure) to join this site and he did a couple months ago. He'll add a lot to the site, but he's a real busy guy...doing a three day trip at Kissimmee right now. The hawgs are in trouble...

I tried Lox today from 1p to 5. Had very little success, only a few hits on big ez's. I'm guessing the cooler weather gave em lock jaw......

i was at lox as well yesterday. i went to the second spillway, went through the cut and flipped the entire hard line back to the ramp. i caught 2 dinks and lost a good one flipping. its tough fishing everywhere. those fish are gonna move in deep soon.

My last 3 post "Sandy" trips to the Lake were pretty sorry. But the good news is that the glades are on fire! My last two trips in the glades were both 30+ up to 5 1/2 #'s.

Rob I was at lox the day before. No bites on the Big Ez but I caught a ton on the skinny dipper. I've had to downsize to get bit lately. Check out our blog site. Www.hawgtech.com/blog

I was out yesterday fishing some structures that hold some warmth and the bass were aggressively chasing bait-fish, but not my lures! We ended up only catching about 12lbs for a best five, but one was a nice fat 5-2, that hit a lipless cranked through a bait-fish bust. Water temps varied by 4 degrees in certain areas!
