High Pressure system is over us now:
Well I think it is safe to say that last weeks cold snap has made a big change in the fishing. Striper/Hybrids were tricky for me over the weekend. I look for the fish
to start to move to shallower water and move up in the water column. It is
completely different in the main lake right now than the past 3 weeks.
Believe it or not the upper parts of the rivers and shallows have already
started to stabilize, from what we consider the ( Fall Turn Over ) There
has been a lot of Dark Brown Bubbles, that looks like foam in the water
and the water just has a darker tint to in in areas. Now I have had some
good Crappie reports from friends continued from my day last Sunday and I did do
well on Spotted bass and stumbled on a good Blue Catfish bite over the
weekend. Matter of fact I was happy to see the Blue cats... Again I don't
focus on Blues that often, in the fall can be a great time to Catch Cats..
It was nice to see the rod bend with a big Catfish when the Stripers are being
tricky. The Catfish and Crappie should continue to bite good for the next couple
weeks while the rest of the lake complete its "turn over"
