Hey folks! Fishing has been great the last few days! The water is dropping fast now and it's getting down to that normal elevation!

We have been running a ton of whitebass trips and doing fantastic! We have been throwing out 1 and 1.5 ounce Bendable Minnows and putting a 3" Crappie Kicker above it and catching two at a time! We have been keying on the north end of the lake and fishing flats and points with wind and shad present on them. We even been catching a ton of channels on the slabs!

Catfish are being caught on cut bait and Sudden Impact fiber bait. They have been on the flats feeding with the current being pulled through the lake from the dam releasing! Catfishing will be getting better and better as the cats start to finish their spawn.

Bowfishing is starting to get better and better now that the water is getting down to normal! We have been killing them on grass flats around the lake here lately! We have a ton of trips lined up and should be a great rest of the summer on Bowfishing!

Well a lot has not changed around Grand Lake the last week or two. I don't know how muddy the lake will get this time. Look for the clear water in Elk River and Honey Creek and you should find some Whitebass.

Spooning in the mornings with 1 ½ oz bendable minnow and trolling with a shad rap in the mid-day.

Crappie fishing has been really good around the docks and bridges using minnows and Crappie Kickers.

Catfishing is fair because they are scattered around in the shallow water and brush making it hard to get to them with this high water. Best bait to use is cut shad and Secret 7.

Hopefully the lake will get back to normal and it quit raining everyday so the fishing will get back to a steady pattern.

The bass fishing is tough for people on Grand! I have talked to many people at the boat ramp saying they can't get bit in the trees, willows that is! I have been on Grand the past few days, I have also fished a ABA tournament as a boater(my first tournament as a boater) about 2 weeks ago. I finished 10th out of 56 boats, not to shabby for my first tournament on the pro side!

All I have to say is when it's summer where do the big schools of big bass go? I found in my 2 days of practice I fished shallow the fist day and maybe had 10 pounds. Which is terrible on Grand! The second day I went deep..... Had about 18-20 pounds, a huge difference! I had a 5.67 big bass and all the rest were 3-4 pounders! And I caught 3 of my fish in 3 cast!

What I was doing was finding clearer water down lake, these fish were holding on isolated chunk rock with pea gravel on these long sloping points in about 15-30 foot of water! I went over each point to find these rock chunks, you could see if fish were on em. Now if you didn't hit that rock pile you wouldn't get bit! I was dragging a 1/2oz football jig (PB&J) once you found the rock you'd dead stick the jig, dead sticking is just when you don't move the jig. After maybe a 6 second pause you'd hop the jig violently off the bottom once and then they'd eat it, you'd simply repeat this pattern. Another thing that I found that was working was a 6" yum money swim bait, throwing it on a 1/2 jig head slowing reeling it back to the boat in 20 foot of water! You wouldn't get bit a lot but once you do they sure are the right ones!

I hope this helped you guys! Tried to tie in all the helpful things I found over the past week! Good luck and tight lines!

Well Grand Lake is still really high but the fishing has been hot!!

We have been slaughtering the whitebass and hybrids in the north end of the lake!! We've been boating 30-100 fish a trip and they have been nice size fish! We have been dropping Fle Fly Bendable Minnows to the bottom and hold on!! I also heard good reports coming from the Horse Creek area!

Most of the catfish are spawning right now. You can still catch a few on cut bait and worms up in the shallows.

Crappie are hitting really good in brush piles out in 10' of water! They are in the post spawn pattern still and are fairly easy to pick off with 2" Go Go Minnows!!

We ran our first night time Bowfishing trip last week and the clients did really well despite the high water! They slung a bunch of arrows and connected with a few!!

If your looking for a guided trip give me a call at 918-964-0174 and also if your on Facebook give me a like under Rusty Pritchard and you can see our catches daily!

I have a couple slots open next week so give me a call and get into the action!!

The water level on Grand Lake is starting to fall now and the catfishing has been a little tough. The Channel Cat are starting to spawn in the rocks. Limb lines and large perch are the best way to get a mess of catfish right now.

White Bass will start getting good when the water starts to clear up. Spooning and trolling for White Bass should be good once Elk River clears up. Honey Creek and Governors Island also should be good for White Bass. I would also like to thank Oklahoma Game and Fish for all the Hybirds they have stocked in the lake we have been catching a lot of 10 inch Hybirds this spring.

Well the lake is extremely high right now!! Lake level start to drop finally! Hopefully in a couple weeks the lake level back out and we will be back to normal fishing!

We did really good on catfish when the water was coming up and the current was coming down the river. The blue cat were hitting really good on cut bait. We were catching really good numbers of fish. This time of year the blue cat are usually going to spawn.

My bow fishing trips were going to start this week but the water is dropping it now the fish are going to be pulling out for now. We shot some really nice gar right before all the rain started! I put a really neat new light system on my boat and I'm really looking forward to getting clients out to try these out!! The water got so high the carp for a pass the tree line we couldn't get! As the water starts to level out the fishing should get really good again!!

This time of year is usually my favorite time to go crappie fishing! Those big sows that have just spawn out are going to postpone pattern and would be in brush piles out in 10 foot of water and easy to catch!! We typically through gogo minnows and let them swing over the tops of the brush piles. Those crappie will hit anything that comes near those brush piles!! If the water will clear up some it should be good again!

Whitebass are still being caught on Elk River! We were out a couple days ago and caught them on Wolfpoint and I've seen people catching them around the bridge. I also saw some people catching white bass around Honey Creek Bridge area. Fle fly bendable minnows have been our lure of choice.

Spoonbill came to a close for me about 2 weeks ago with a record catch!!! We boated over 1500 spoonbill in about a 6 month stretch!! That shattered my previous record of 1000 two years ago!! Biggest boated for us this season was 86 pounds!! What a season!!

Lake is falling fast now. Its down to 743.5 as of June 1. Catfishing is excellent. Blue catfish and channel catfish will be spawning soon. Flathead catfish being caught on rod and reel and limb lines using 8/0 team catfish hooks. Bass fishing slow. White bass and Crappie can be caught in clear water in the Honeycreek alarm. Bendable minnows and gogo minnows are a great choice in the white or chartreuse colors. Fishing below the dam will be excellent once the water flows slow down a lot. Lots of fish have moved up river from Hudson Lake and our staged below the Grand Lake dam.
