The past month has been good for my clients for the most part, we had some slow days but everyone still caught fish. Our best fish this month was a 9.09 largemouth which was Mr. Randy Stanfield’s personal best. We experienced some exciting fishing while catching them on a variety of lures.The best lineup of lures was Tightline Jigs, D-Bombs and Destroyers from Missile Baits, swimbaits and Wobble Head Swim-jigs from Tightline Jigs around main channel grass lines and grassy humps. Water temps range from 68 to 76 degrees.

May should be a blast as we will have the shad spawn starting on or around the full moon, and we’ll start working the shell beds. Best advice is “slow down and work an area completely!”
