Rw. Its tough to fish at the lake I go to when it's a clear blue sky. You see the picture of the Cypress Lake on my posts. Average 6ft. No real drop offs. Slowly tapers to the edges. Post front. A storm just passed yesterday. What do you think?

Banks Lake in Lakeland Georgia. That's where they filmed the movie "Gator" with Burt Reynolds in the early 70's. It's about a 25 minute run from Valdosta, Ga.

Ya can't catch 'em from the couch!!!!!

Anyday fishing is better than, well just about anything.

Whether you catch 'em or not.

This past Saturday I fished a 3 hour jackpot air temp was 57 degree's

water temp ranged from 46-48 degree's and it rained for the better part of the 3 hours that we were on the water.

We didn't get anything in the boat, my partner lost one, but 11 of 18 boats weighed in fish and 1st was a 5.8 largemouth, 2nd was a 4.8 smallmouth.

(I had said in an earlier post that the smallmouth weighed 5.8, my mistake.)

Go get 'em

Any day of fishing---is better than staying home, sitting on your couch in your underwear watching TV wishing you were fishing. It probably will be a slow catching day but you will be doing what the rest of us trapped in offices or hotels wish we were doing.   Glad to see you went --we will be awaiting the report. 8-)

It was a good day. I tried a different area to no avail. I went to where I had been catching them and caught 3, bang, bang, bang on a Bill Norman crankbait. Water Temp topped out at 61 degrees.

I'm new at bass fishing and I have questions.

Can you fish for bass at night?

If so what should I use? jigs,spinnerbait,spoon

Thanks

Toss a line.  Lord knows that when I've gone in perfect fishing conditions, I struck out.  And when I went during sideways rain and chocolate milk water, I boated bass on a weird bait.  It's the thrill of the hunt brother!

R-TRAP-  I'm looking at 38 degrees, 20mph N wind, blue skies.  I also have a UPS truck with approximately 150 stops, 400 or so packages and a boss who wants more stock options so he's cut more resources than necessary.

Do I go in to work?

wanna trade decisions?
