Hey guys, the water is up a ton! I have flipped willows all day long, all I can say is don’t waste your time! I only caught one fish out of the willows and it was a 4 pounder but that was 4 hours of flipping!! That long and only one fish is not my style. I proceeded to start fishing my off shore summer spots and I caught a lot of fish and they were good ones! I was dragging a ½ oz Hooker Custom Lures football head jig (PB&J) And then going back to a 10 inch green pumpkin ribbon tail worm. Both were producing a bunch of quality fish. They were coming out of rock piles anywhere to 15-25 foot of water. There is one key factor to catching them though, they are sitting on pea gravel with rocks or brush on the drop or transition on the points. Hold on tight cause they are killin it! Good luck guys and tight lines!

Bass fishing and white bass fishing is on fire right now at Grand Lake. 

As the water level rises, it just keeps getting better and better. The largemouth are cruising around the shallow willow trees and bushes in 1-4 ft of water. Catching a lot of my fish on a spro bronzeye topwater frog. Using the frog on 15 pound Berkeley trilene big game green on a 7ft medium heavy High Standard carbon rod. Also catching a lot of fish on a 3/8 oz Black and Blueberry Fishtek Jig. You can purchase these jigs at the Grove Walmart. 

Memorial day is this weekend, and there's nothing better to do than take the family out to catch a mess of white bass for dinner! Road runners, rooster tails, go- go minnows and shallow diving shad colored crankbaits on windy banks in 8-10 ft of water is where the white bass are. Remember, look for busting on the waters surface and cast towards it and you're garanteed to catch one! Good luck to everyone fishing this weekend and most of all BE SAFE. Be sure to wear life jackets and drive cautiously for your safety and others. Due to the water rising, there is a lot of logs floating in the lake, so be careful!! And most of all have fun!

Grand Lake is on the rise again. The Catfish will be in pre-spawn eating anything they can find. The Catfish will be in 1ft to 10ft deep water. I would use cut shad and worms for bait. This is also a good time to set limb lines using large perch and setting them about 8 inches from the surface.

The White Bass have been doing good in the Elk River and the Honey Creek area. Spooning has been good using the 1oz Bendable Minnow. Trolling has been good too using the shad rap.

The Crappie fishing has been good around the boat docks on the shady side. I would use 1/16oz Crappie Kicker.

Well I didn’t make it to Grand, which is a big disappointment. Boats in the shop this week and hoping that I will be on the water this weekend. But the good news is I have heard Grand is sill fishing well! I have heard from people that a jig is still doing great, fishing it in clear water in the shade of the docks anywhere from 6-15 foot of water. The fish seem to be pulling off into a little deeper water. I have also heard there are plenty of fish shallow also. Another thing I would give a shot is a bone white sexy dog jr by Strike King, throw it on shallow flats early morning but mostly I would stick with a green pumpkin orange 1/2oz jig, personally the Hooker Custom Lures heavy finesse jig! If interested the website is www.hookercustomlures.com and put my name in the comments if you make a purchase! Thank you guys! Hope to see you on the water, tight lines.
