6Lbs largemouth

on April 10th

Went out yesterday, 20140410, about 500pm, and did well for the first time fishing the lake. Im a kayak fisherman and with the first look at the stained water, because of the recent rains, only tied one lure on. Boyah white and chartreuse colorado blades 1/2 ozs. Caught one 2 1/2Lbs off of a dock in the first ten minutes. The wind was pretty agrivating though, coming south at 10+ Off and on. Caught the big female right where you would expect them to be with current conditions. Got another smaller one too. Im going back this weekend and hope to do well with the morning bite. As water clarity improves I will adjust my strategy accordingly. Maybe some downlines with live bait dor stripers and hybrids.

Panfish on Oliver

on October 18th

Bluegill fishing is good during April and May, and the average catch is 6-8 inches with weights of 1/4-1/3 lb. Worms work best, and the backs of coves and sloughs are the most productive sites. Redear sunfish are even larger with some reaching 1-1 1/2 lbs. Pink worms may be the best bait.
