Walleye, Largemouth and Smallmouth. Tom Kelly Catches Them all.
Cooler for the next few days and then warming up again. It was 65 degrees when I went out fishing yesterday. The lake level is dropping slowly and is at 554.23 and the surface temperature is hanging in there at about 56. I still am not getting very many fish off the brush piles. The bass are still biting on crank baits on gravelly shallow flats on the main lake but not nearly as well on calm days. If the wind is blowing hard from the south and you go to south facing banks they bite a lot better. Big ones too. The water is not warming very quickly so they might stay there for a bit. More and more walleye are showing up but I am not catching many yet. They will be on main lake point brush next month. Blackburns is getting more and more walleye fishermen as the fish population continues to increase. We have several striper fishermen in now and the day time fishing has been challenging for them. I caught some nice fish yesterday but not too many. The lake was like glass and has been almost every early evening for several days. Bink is on fish both day and night with the morning bite being better than the afternoon. The fish are numerous under my dock but I save them for the children and feed them several times a day. I have still not caught a catfish on my trot line but several big bass. Tom Kelly caught some good ones yesterday morning. The lake was clearing nicely but the creeks are stained green a bit more. Just right for fishing. You main lake fishermen it is time to reduce your line size and take off all hardware and install flourocarbon line. Norfork definitely has line shy fish. Blackburns has all of their cabins open for spring and have one vacancy for next week. 1-800-635-0526 People are taking advantage of our low prices on both cabins and boat rentals and free boat stalls. It is worth a trip here to just see all of the improvements. We are proud of this place.
