The weather is really getting nice and starting to act like fall. The White Bass are starting to feed in shallow water along main lake points. You can catch them trolling or casting using a 1/8 oz Go Go minnow of any color.

We have been drifting for Catfish in 30 to 50ft of water using cut shad. If you are drifting at night try going a little shallower. Crappie will be moving out of the docks soon and will be chasing shad, so you will be liable to catch them on the banks or in deep water depending on what the wind does.

I ran two catfish trips this weekend. We had a rain delay and dodged storms, but the temperature was awesome for August and the fishing was pretty good too. We drifted large chunks of gizzard shad in 20-35ft of water mid-lake. The fish preferred .6-.8mph when drifting. I used my trolling motor to drag baits, however you can put the boat sideways to the wind and use drift socks to dictate your speed. I used Team Catfish 8/0 hooks and around 3 ounces of weight on a 3-way rig. If you're interested in a guided fishing trip give me a call at 918-607-7357 or visit www.lancesguideservice.com

I took a break from grand for awhile and fished some local lakes but I went to grand 2 days ago and did pretty well off of something not many people do on grand! I tied on a drop shot with a 1 1/5 foot leader with a green pumpkin zoom trick worm. I was fishing fronts of docks anywhere from 8 to 12 foot of water. I ended up catching some decent fish, I caught several keepers and a 4 pound kicker! You will get tons of bites and go through a lot of worms, also make sure to change up the colors. A robo worm in morning dawn works well also! I was fishing around the mid lake area and they were eating very well!The water temp was about 87-90 degree water but those fish were suspended under the docks all day! Good luck and tight lines!

Hey folks!

Well the Bowfishing continues to be great! With the water level at 743' and holding steady it has helped out a lot for more consistent bowfishing trips! I've been running Bowfishing trips about every night and here in the last few days we have really shot some huge buffalo!! Seems like most fish are in the very backs of the pockets and on the main lake banks. It's been some of the best shooting we've had all summer right now!

Whitebass have been good in Elk River and around Sailboat Bridge the last few weeks. Some evenings they come up and surface and other evenings you have to slab for them on the bottom. Use your electronics to find the schools on the flats. The 2" bendable minnow has been our choice early evening and switching the 2" Go Go Minnow once they start to surface. Sweet water and Governors Island should be holding fish as well. They are still in the summer pattern and should be for another month or so before switching over to the fall bite!

Haven't heard much on the cats yet. We've been too busy with the bowfishing and whitebass. If I was to go out I'd focus on 15'-25' of water and drift shad on a Carolina Rig right now. 5/0 team catfish hooks would be my hook of choice.

If your looking for a guided trip give me a call at 918-964-0174 and also look me up on Facebook and give me a friend request to keep up on all the action daily!

The fishing has been good the past couple weeks. The White Bass has been topping all over the lake in the evenings around Elk River, Bird Island, and Governors Island. We have been throwing a 2 inch Go Go Minnow firecracker color.

The Crappie has been doing good around the docks in about 10ft of water using minnows. It is time to start drifting for Catfish. I have been catching them in 20 to 30 foot of water using a Carolina Rig with 5/0 Team Catfish hooks.

Hey folks!

Bowfishing has been on fire! The water levels have dropped and the fish are all over the banks right now!! My clients are slinging a ton of arrows and hitting a bunch of great fish! The big mouth buffalo have been staying out on the main lake banks here lately. The small mouth buffalo are still hanging back in the backs of the coves. The gar are mostly out on the main lake points and we have been seeing some big ones!!

Whitebass have been really good all summer. Some days are better than others but all and all a great summer for them! We are still dropping 1 ounce bendable minnow on them. The bite seems to be better in the evenings around Sailboat Bridge and Bird and Bad Islands. We've been just looking for the bigger schools of them on the graph and dropping the slabs on them. Catfishing is starting to pickup. I hear a lot of people drifting cut Shad out in 15-25 feet of water and doing good.
