Fished the tourney today with 22 boats from all over AZ and CA. winning weight was 10.95 big fish was a little over 3#. We weighed in 9.45 which got us fourth. caught fish all day long all over the lake on drop shot. top water bite was a hit and miss thing. did well on cranking at first light. still hotter than hell during the day. is it not time for winter???????????
Lots of fish caught by the good guys (cops and firemen) at Bartlett on Wed. Thanks to all of the guys who helped put on this tournament and special thanks to the sponsors who donated prizes from Yamamoto, Waterdog Willy's, and Wal-Mart. (Thanks for the support.)
More special thanks to all of the other teams who let my partner and I win. 10.96 on worms, rattletraps and reacton baits. We couldn't catch any big ones, but we were consistent in our catch.
Haven't been to Bartlett for awhile. Probably going Sun am with a friend(finally got a back seat). Without giving out any secrets, unless you want, where is the best action? Is it still up in the no-wake zone? Any specific type of structure(rocks, flats, ..).
Best bite is in the upper end on river rock. the shad are moveing down lake towards Rattlesnake cove. A friend of mine fished top water all day at the dam end and weighed in 8.5 pounds and caught fish all day.
I am seeing alot of very large 20 foot plus schools of shad around Bartlett Flats, the lake is going down about 4 inches a day. as the shad move out of the river so will the bass. 2 friends went up there and fished the eve in the last 3 days and each caught at least 1 over 4 pounds. Thats like a 10 pounder in Sag.
