Overall the fishing on the lake is not doing too great. We are in that transition period form Summer to Fall and the fish aren't very active. The water temperature is between 65-68 degrees and needs  to level out to about 60 degrees for the Fall bite to really start happening and start the spinnerbait and crankbait bite. Right now the only thing working for Bass are jigs around the brush piles but still not very many fish or size to them. Crappie are fishing better than the Bass around the docks and brush piles with Crappie jigs. Hopefully the cold weather today sticks around to bring the water temperatures down.

Competed in a Club bass tournament over the weekend. Hawg Hawlers Bass Club. Tournament took out of Rock Harbor resort at about the 8MM. Friday 10/10- the weather included rain, rain and more rain. My partner and I started at Alohana resort and were catching them all over- Main lake points, secondary points, and half way back into the cove on a black/blue Jakked Baits finess jig with a slim crawdad trailer. Later we moved down to Shawnee Boat ramp and caught a few more. Larger fish were caught midway back into the cove. Then came tournament day. Wind direction, clouds, and overall weather was mostly the same but there was no rain which we think changed the pattern just slightly. needless to say- Saturday we finished the day in about 14th place with 1 fish weighing 1 pound 8 ounces. It was an absolute grind where we threw everything in the tackle box. That night we put together a whole new game plan and went right back at it on Sunday. Once again, the weather was the same- cloudy with a little wind. This time we concentrated on secondary points -around the Shawnee Boat Ramp- with isolated docks throwing a 7/16 Jakked Baits finess jig- Brown - with a Green zoom craw trailer. Very compact bait. Between 7am-12:30pm we caught about 10 fish with only 4 being keepers. Most bass were caught directly off shoe or on the backs of docks. Every once in a while we would pick one up by swimming a jig around a dock. With only 30 minutes left in the tournament we decided to hit some deeper water on main lake points. Tied on a 1/2 and 3/8 Jakked Baits structure jig- Black and brown with a Green Trailer, threw in to some key brush piles in about 13 foot of water and caught 2 keepers. Each one weighing about 3 pounds. Sunday's weight with 5 fish was 16 pounds. This allowed my partner and I to finish in 4th place in the tournament.
