This is what Scuba Steve is after.Image title

Some schools of white bass, crappie and several walleye have finally moved to main lake brush at 26-30 feet despite the hot weather. Got some good ones today. Just finished the new roof on #11. It now has new appliances, heat and cool in all rooms, new wiring and more plug-ins, and is heavily insulated. Nice cabin. Three bedrooms and two full baths. Big screened in porch. All for $103/day. Some places charge that for a one bedroom. You get the best deals here.

This hot weather in September is not helping fishing any. The surface temperature is still in the low 80's and is showing no signs of dropping. If you get out before first light there is a bite on brush piles and then a short topwater bite and then everything is about over. It then gets very hot about 3PM and does not cool much until dark. The next several days do not show much different. I am getting a few walleye diving on brush part way back in the creeks at 30-32 feet of water near the bottom and I did get one nice white bass and a crappie in the same place but saw no schools. I am seeing many very large carp. There seem to be more than normal what ever that is. You cannot rely on what normally happens anymore but just be out there and be ready when things change. It is hard to schedule ahead. The fish are there and the people that put in the time, are willing to change, and are flexible will catch them. Some nice bass are moving near the bank in 20-25 feet of water in the evening. A plastic worm before dark and a saltcraw after are catching fish. Catfish, walleye and bass are the best right now but none are good. I have never seen so many catfish being caught on a jigging spoon and good ones too. The pool is open and the prices are low.

The lake level is 553.9 and has risen just a little the last few days. It is at a very good level and is in very good condition. The surface temperature is 82. The weather is to be basically clear with highs in the high 80's and lows in the mid 60's for several days. Many fish are near 30 feet as there is little oxygen below that. Louis Lattray is back and he always catches fish and is welcome. Joe Cebula is catching fish everyday day also and some good ones too. He caught about as big of crappie as I have seen out of Norfork and it has giant ones. He has donated many big fish to the trophy pond.  Fish are roaming and you cannot count on them being in the same place for very long. If they do not bite on one brush pile for a few minutes, move to another one and come back later. Bait fish are the key and they are moving too. Usually when the fish move to the brush in the fall they stay put for a long time. Not this year as it is still summer. The lake is great for boating, swimming and water sports and our pool is still open. Our rates are now $53/day for two people. Most other resorts start at $75. You can save a lot of money and have free boat stalls too. It is very nice here. Bink is back on the walleye.
