Long time customers Danny and Dilbert fished for 3 days this week and the fishing was phenomenal!! We caught 25-40 fish each day and several fish over 5 lbs. Now is the time to book your trip for the coming Fall bite! We still have several open days in Oct. as well. These fish were caught on live wild shiners but we also caught several fish on Zara spook. As the weather cools the fishing should only get better and better!
Robbie Marx his son and father caught some Giant Bass on the lake today landing 2 over 6lbs. and 4 between 4 and 5 punds catching a total of 27 in 4 hours. The light breeze and clouds made for a beautiful day and fun fishing. Alexander caught the biggest fish of the day landing this 6 lb. 13oz. bucket mouth. Watching his eyes light up when landing this beauty was the best part of my job. Thanks for coming guys and look forward to seeing you again!
