“Fishing is a lot like baseball, full of curves and sliders. It’s how you swing that makes a difference.”
This past weekend was the Waholi Bass Classic out of Wolf Creek Park with 178 entries in this team event. The Pelican Festival was there as well and the City of Grove did a great job sharing the facilities. Folks, this tournament is a fun event with each participating team receiving 2 Waholi rods and a chance to win a 4 wheeler and 2 Garmin live scope electronics packages without even catching a fish! First prize of $5,500 went to Jay Alexander and Beau Nelson with 4 fish that weighed 18.33 lbs. The team of Justin Stamps and Kojak Cook had big bass honors with 6.43 lbs.
Last week we again had some very good black and white bass trips. The white bass catch was interesting. Windy main lake points on small crank baits and curly tail grubs worked best but the fish were either small or very large. Go figure. Our black bass bite was on Sooner Run Biffle Bugs in 4-6 ft on gravel points. I had a spectacular day (10/15) fishing in the willows, on the mid-lake islands, throwing a spinner bait dirt shallow. Give it a try.
I bumped into Tommy Vaughn (No Wake Guide Service) this week and he’s had some excellent spoon bill trips fishing mid lake. If you’ve never done this type of fishing you should give it a try.
Until next time, keep your bait in the water. Clint Baranowski
