Well, The lake has come up an additional 2 feet since I last reported earlier this week. I would imagine it will crest, with no more rain, around 480.?? Most of the water is very stained with the exception of major arms on the north basin begining to flush out. I had friend and Client John Wright, Memphis TN, fishing with me Saturday. We Boated over 70 fish total for the day with the catch including Spotted Bass, Hybrids, Walleye and of course White Bass. The fish where active all day long but you had to work for them. All the new water has not affected the bite and if anything actually helped, believe it or not. Most of the fish we targeted came on 1/8 oz. Jig Heads with a 3" curly tail grub, Chartreuse and Pearl are very good right now with the color in the water when fished on a slow and steady retrieve in and around the buck brush and flooded timber. The important thing to remember is don't over complicate things, KISS, Keep it simple stupid, is an age old acronym and should be applied during the next coming weeks. I will also tell you that the White's are in full swing and spawning heavily day and night, If you fish for 15 minutes and don't get a bite and you know your in the right location's change color, presentation until you start catching. The white's are super sensitive to color and speed, don't overlook this aspect. Stick bait's are still producing but not as good as the jig and grub combo. I'll keep it short and sweet for now, I'm hitting the water again.

I have been out of commission bc my boat is getting a makeover:biggrin: However, I should have it back in my dock this next weekend. Anyway, how deep are you fishing? Usually when the water is like this, there is decent fishing up in the brush but I still catch the bigger fish deeper. Greers can be a crazy lake to fish but seems like there is always something biting. I have been fishing it since I was 6 years old and still haven't figured it out:smack:

Fishing Location's

This time of year your going to want to keep it simple, This is one of the best time's of year for our reservoir. Concentrate your efforts up the main feeder arms in the north basin or some of the minor feeder creeks in the south portion. Look for depths of 10 - 20 feet with cover, next to main channel swings. Good luck~

My problem is that I need a boat to get to my boat.
I pulled my dock in last weekend and Thursday the walkway was about 6 ft from the bank.
That night it rained 2 inches and my walkway was about 60 ft from the shore.
The lake is over 19 ft high with rain being called for this week.
The Corp says they won`t be releasing any water any time soon.
Watch out for logs floating in the lake!!

The fishing wasn't to good. Although the trip was very nice the high water let us get into some places I haven't seen before. If it would quit raining for week I think they would really pickup. You have to go a long way up the creeks to get to clear water.
