Cold breeze throughout the day! Saw lots of activity on the graph coming into the west side of the barrier docks of scorpion bay. Tried liver, worms, corn and a few plastics. A few bites but nothing in the boat. Explored near the Pleasant Harbor Marina... No activity to report there!

My name is Mike Strole. I am known as "The fish Whisperer". I am a Professional Fishing Guide. My Guide company is AZ Great Adventure Fishing. The picture above was of a client  on my most recent guide trip on Lake Pleasant. The fish was 26inches long and was one of a number of nice fish taken on that trip. It was caught using cut anchovies on a modified drop shot rig. To get more information you can either contact me by going on my website azgreatadventurefishing.com, or call me at 602-370-8058, or join me at Cabela's in Glendale AZ from 11AM - 4PM January 30th or 31st.

From Striper Snatcher Guide Service: “The water level is 61-percent full with a water temp of 78 degrees on the south side and 82 on the north side; credit to 800cfs of water being pumped into the lake, coupled with cooler night temps.

After fishing almost every day for two years, I have finally found a good crappie pattern, catching them on spoons in the river channel in trees where schools of shad are close by. Shad are on the move from the depths of the river channel and moving farther back into the northern coves each day. It is easy to net them and drag a slip bobber for suspended fish during the heat of the day.

I'm continuing to use a spoon and catch 2-4 pound striper on every drop once a shad school is located in the morning and evening times. During the day I'm going from tree to tree jigging a spoon on heavy line and catch every fish imaginable from a tilapia to a crappie. For more information you can contact me through my website www.stripersnatcher.com.”

Nighttime fishing for catfish, especially form the shore, should be good using stink bait. This is prime catfish time.

Try stink baits such as chicken liver. Corn also can work for catfish and carp. Frozen anchovies fished on the bottom are another good choice – you might even catch a striped bass.
