I once asked Buck Perry, the father of “structure fishing” what kind of boat he preferred fishing out of. He replied one that doesn’t leak.

It’s amazing Grand Lake can continue to produce, on a consistent basis, the size and numbers of multiple species of fish. We are blessed to have these angling opportunities.

Fishing conditions have not changed that much. Water level is constant at 744 +/- , and temperatures continue to climb into the upper 60’s, with good clarity throughout the lake.

Largemouth bass and crappie are going through the spawning migration where we are catching fish shallow; on the beds, and deeper; not there yet. I’m not certain we noticed any post spawn fish, but this will happen in the next 2 weeks. Try a trick worm on black bass once you see them “cruising” the shallow water after the spawn.

I ran into Jim Wagner (Wagner's Guide Service), and he told me the catfish bite was HOT on cut bait in the shallows north of Sail Boat Bridge all the way up to the Sycamore turn on the flats. He also indicated he had a good spoonbill trip.

Until next time…keep your hook in the water.
