Holy Cow it has been busy this summer. Had lots of trips and caught lots of fish but more than anything I met some wonderful people and had some great times. Sometimes the fishing was red hot others it was as tough as a two dollar steak. But all in all the summer was good.
Now that it is September and fall is just around the corner things will start to change. With the cooler temps just around the corner. The shad will start moving to the backs of the coves and the White Bass and the Hybrids will be chasing them down. Nothing better than having fish busting shad all around you. You can catch them on just about anything you throw when this is happening. My favorite method is fishing the bottoms of the schools with a jigging spoon. I find that I can catch more and bigger fish with this method. This usually last until mid November. Fall fishing can be really super as long as you miss the fall turnover. The fall turnover is when the surface layer of water gets cooler than the lower level. Cooler water sinks and the bottom of the lake comes to the top. This will shut fishing down faster than the price of gas can rise. It usually takes about a week for things to get back to normal. Until then well you might just want to get a couple of home projects finished.
As I am writing this i hear the discussion about possible taking action against Syria for using chemical weapons against their own people. I am sad to hear this because of the loss of people not only our troops but the innocent people that cannot get out of harms way. I feel sad for people that wish harm on others ..You know just maybe if someone had taken them fishing just maybe they would of been a better person. Peace to all and damn I sure wish everyone could just get along.
