OK Ed you are killing me here.  I haven't had a 20+ fish trip in over 3 months.  I wish I had a honey hole like you do.  Congrats.

Fresh Water Fishing Discussion / Another Good Trip
« Last post by Ed Gerdemann on September 15, 2018, 01:00:45 AM »
Just got back from another couple days at Powell. My partner and I caught 38 smallies on Wednesday along with a couple ugly green bass before getting run off the lake at noon by high winds. All fish were caught in sight of Wahweap Marina so it's not necessary to run 30 miles up lake to find good fishing. On Thursday we did get up lake a few miles (but still close) and caught 50 smallmouths. Although we didn't get any lunkers, we did catch a bunch between 2 and 2 3/4 pounds. We caught a lot of fish up shallow despite temperatures in the mid-90s. I had a lot of luck on wacky rigged weightless Senkos on Wednesday, but Thursday the drop shot with a Yamamoto Shad Shaped Worm worked the best.

I'll be going back week after next. The weather should be cooler and the fishing even better!  ;D

Smallmouth fishing at Lake Powell is the best I've seen in the 27 plus years I've been fishing there. What is unusual about this year is fishing are spending a lot of time up shallow even on hot (90+) days, and weightless Senkos have often time been more productive than drop shotting. A lot of water will be released from Powell over the next couple months to move sediment downstream on the Colorado River for improvement of native fish habitat and to bring up Lake Mead. It will be interesting to see how this affects the fishing.   ???

In my area we had a rainy spring then it got hot quick. My son wacked them all year on a 7 inch curly tail texas rig worm. I had some luck on a jig but caught my biggest of the summer on a 10 in curly tail worm in deeper water. Ready for the fall feeding frenzy so hopefully will get me some big ones in the lake behind the house.

last few weeks worms and crankbaits were working, today we  got 12 bass  and 2 pikes ALL but 2 were  were  on crankbait.  and all were within 12 ft of the bank in the grass,i think weather and pressure from hurricane had something to do with it cloudy, misty rain, and temps dropped from  hi 90's to 84*.wtg jig man. good job bassobsessed.

We have had a very different year here in MO.  We were cold way into spring then in May it go hot like July and stayed that way until this week.  It also got real dry.  We have been in a severe drought.  Fishing was not very good until after the spawn then for some reason the Ned rig caught fire.  It produced unreal numbers and size for about 5 weeks then like flipping a switch they quit it and moved.  I've been looking for them ever since.  The Ned rig can't even get a bite lately.  Baby Brush Hogs on a wobble head has been my best bait lately.

Been quite the fishing season for me . For some reason crank baits ,spinner baits , chatter baits wasn't working for me this year.  I am guessing it is fishing pressure, or the shifting weather we have been having anyway ... . I went to "finesse" fishing and started catching them finally again. now and then going back to my old ways which wasn't producing maybe  getting one now and then.  I then downsized lures and started catching them again. This to me is puzzling. I also cant believe the boat traffic this year. anyone one else run into this?
