Hey folks! Well the whitebass has slowed up a bit with them shutting the dam down. The lake is pretty stained to dirty throughout the whole lake. We've still been catching them down lake around Honey Creek and Sweet Water area on 2 1/2" Chartreuse GO Go Minnows.

Crappie have been going strong the last week or so for me! This is start of the post spawn bite and is my favorite time to catch crappie! I fish brush that is setting around 10' fow and have been throwing the 2 1/2" Chartreuse Go Go on a 1/4 ounce head at them! We will throw past the brush and let the Go Go swing over the top of the brush and picking them really well right now!

Bowfishing has been getting better and better. We've ran several trips already this year with good luck every trip! The gar spawn is starting to pickup! Nows the time to shoot a monster gar if your looking for a trophy!! I furnish all equipment on my Bowfishing trips and it's something anyone can do!

I'm really excited because Sunday I leave for Northern Saskatchewan Canada for my first ever bear hunt/fishing trip! I'm going to put a Fixpandable broadhead to work on hopefully a big ole black bear! Our guide up there has been giving us GREAT reports on bear movements on his bait sites! So hopefully here in a week or so I'll be able to show you guys a bear pic!!

We ran 4 trips this weekend and all were very successful even with the drastic weather changes. We were fishing 8-18ft deep in clear water. I've never had much luck fishing the stained water for white bass. Our set up for slabbing is a spinning reel on High Standard medium heavy rods from Fle-Fly with 20 pound braid and a 15 pound fluorocarbon leader. The key is finding the active feeding school this time of year. Sometimes they will be layered on the bottom and you just need one bite to get whole school excited in a fast action feeding frenzy. To get in on the action call/text 918-607-7357 or visit www.lancesguideservice.com for more information.

Hi folks! Well I'm back on Grand Lake now! I've been on Ft. Gibson lake chasing spoonbill since mid January and now it's nice to be back on my home lake! We had a great season! We boated a little over 1000 spoonbill since December 1st!! I did 197 trips in that span and got to meet some awesome new clients! I took a couple weeks off the water and now it's back to fishing!!.

Yesterday evening we went after the whitebass!! It is on fire! We fished the north end of the lake and we caught some toads! We were throwing 2 1/2" Firecracker Go Go Minnows at them and they were tearing it up! We even saw some surfacing which is a little early for that but they were doing it!

Bowfishing is also heating up! We put the deck back on a couple days ago and we've shot a couple evenings with some great success!!  We are really seeing a lot of good fish right now!! It's going to be a great summer for sure on the Bowfishing! If you have never experienced the thrill of bowfishing your missing out!! It's typically a lot of action! It's great for kids and women! No experience needed! I furnish all the bows and equipment!.

It's going to be a great summer and if your looking a guided trip give me a call at 918-964-0174 and also checkout my website at www.rustypritchardoutdoors.com! We are also excited to announce we won Best of the Best guide on Grand Lake this year!! Thanks to everyone that voted!!

Elevation above normal, water 70 and slightly stained. Crappie good on GoGo minnows and Crappie Kickers around docks and along shorelines. White bass good on GoGo minnows and shad at the mouth of Elk River. Blue and channel catfish good on shad at 5 ft. in mid to upper lake. Report submitted by Marni Loftis, game warden stationed in Delaware County.

The fishing has been great right now with all the rain we got and the Catfish will be spending a lot of time in the shallow water. We have been catching a lot on cut shad and Secret Seven in 5 foot of water.

Crappie fishing is really good in and around boat docks. I would use Crappie minnows or Crappie Kickers in the shaded areas around the docks.

April is the month to catch spawning Crappie on the banks and this should be good until May. I have been catching them on 1 and 2 inch Go Go Minnows bait of choice.

The White Bass fishing can be good in May but can get hard with the rain we could in May. Spooning a 1oz Bendable Minnow can be good this of month or trolling a shad rap in open water.
