Fishing Notes

Todays trip was more of a scouting trip than a fishing trip. The client was moving to the lake and wanted to just check out the area. We fished for maybe 2 hours total today. The rest of the trip was spent explaining how to read electronics, contour lines, and fish behavior.

We started off fishing offshore points and with the current still ripping through Grand Lake, we targeted the sheltered sides of the points. We caught one 3lber fairly quick and the fish were still holding in the same areas as the day before. We only got 1 bite at this spot this morning though and then we started driving around and checking out the area.

We ran to the mouth of Honey Creek and tried to fish a main lake point. We could see fish set up on the point but the current was ripping and it was throwing our 1/2oz weights around pretty good. We hooked into a fish on the point but the line broke on the hook set.

We spent the rest of the day just driving around until about 3 oclock. The water clarity throughout the lake still looks pretty good. I have heard several reports of debris floating in the water around Sailboat Bridge but it has not made it to Honey Creek yet. The water however was defiantly dirtier than it has been in the mid lake area. Duck Creek and Drowning Creek still looked good with 3+ feet of visibility.

Towards the end of the day, we tried to fish shallow for a bit. We ran into Arrowhead South and flipped a jig and a worm around docks. We tried this for 20 minutes or so and we got 1 bite that took the pinchers off of my jig trailer. That was it. The water is high and in bushes all over the lake.

We continued our tour of Grand Lake and found some fish stacked on a main lake point towards the dam. These fish were sitting on the side of the point getting hit the hardest with current. I was able to catch a 5lber on a 1/2oz flutter spoon. When I say catch one, I have never had a fish eat the spoon like this. I had to dig it out of his gullet and was afraid the fish was going to die. With the flutter spoon, you let it go to the bottom and rip it off. It is a fast moving bait and they dont have time to eat it. This fish just inhaled it. Luckily, we got the hook out and the fish swam off just fine.

Once we got this bite, I handed my client the rod and started explaining how to fish it. During this time, we missed 4 or 5 bites all in a row. Once we missed this many bites, the school had shutdown and repositioned. While this was fun, we did not capitalize on the opportunity to catch some good fish. After a few minutes, we decided to call it a day.

If you are going out today and looking for an offshore bite; make sure you remember the water is rising. For example, if you were catching them in a spot in 15 feet of water, that spot is now in 20 feet of water. That may be to deep now. Start pushing up into that new 15 foot depth zone and find new places that are holding fish.

With all the water in the bushes also, the shallow bite should be really good also. Find a good feeder creek arm and you should wear them out. Good luck out there.
