Fished several trips since posting anything.   Not that I am embarrassed only that things are really hard with all the increment weather, and pattern changes of the fish.  It has not been the good year I had last year, but I have been having a good amount of fish, with the usual big ones.  Biggest was 14.5, decent box, but I am hoping for things to settle some, so guess what I am saying, dont expect a lot of miracles, accept the conditions, and enjoy the lake.   Reading other posts, if you use um-rig, you have to have a lure retriever!   Or accept your losses.   You also have to almost be right on top of the rig, and snatch it, with even the retriever hitting the rig, sometimes lossen it.   I have lost one rig this year, and that was a fault in the line.  (wont admit whose fault)..    I find no set patterns with the fish, they are not where they were last year this time, but thats to be expected, the lake changes also.   I still like the 20 to 30 feet of water, never failing to run 18-25 also.    I am explaining to my customers to ride out the settlement of water, and no wonder how or when that will be, even expecting possibly flood conditions.   I am using extreme bright colors, and red seems to be alerting, with the cloudy water.  I will be out tomorrow, and if we meet wave, its Texoma, a very friendly lake (except if your a guide we always beach)....[biggrin]     Have a good one and stay dry....

Thanks JD. Hopefully we can get a little break in the rain and let the lake settle a bit. It's great we can start the summer at full pool.

Full pool? Really Joe, that was very insightful! [wink]

thanks JD for the report. if this rain keeps up at this rate it wont be long before everyone will be elbow to elbow fishing behind the dam. i would like to see all the anglers stacked behind the dam if it happens. this would probably be a sight to see. i have heard stories about how crowded it gets when the water is moving behind the dam.           thanks jd and have a great day.

JD, Hauling meat over the side with a 9 jig rig reminds me of cod fishing with a 10 lb cannon ball at 300 ft. I like to catch them with a single jig and a bass rod. Dragging a umbrella takes a lot of boat control to not get hung up. I lost 2 last year, it's like losing a $ 50.00 lure.

I think full pool is way behind us. This is the view from Eisenhower park today where I tried to launch.
This time last year one of those ramps  was closed due to low water and that buoy was almost on dry land.

I went over to the Okie side by Caney. The Washita was coming in hard and muddy. Everything was very flooded there too. With more rains coming this week I guess Texoma is out for a couple weeks or more for me. May is usually the best month up there.

LoL. I was just happy to see the lake get some water. I had no idea it was going to be 7+ over pool. [smile]

Tunaman it does not have to be that way.   I do it because now my customers love it, and I usually get fish, a must in my line of work.   I know the lake well enough to assist me with the methods I decide to use.   Incidentally yesterday was a great day, so sorry for being so dismal in my last fishing report, crying about the waters and hard to find fish.   Yesterday I caught fish, first in deep water, following a mudline.  Then deep in mudline which comes out of a cove.   Caney Creek ok.   I guess it could have been any creek, any mudline, which is a method where the dirty water coming out of the coves, holds food, and the fish follow the food and hold sometimes in the muddy water, and some times inside the clear water.   It does not take a genius to run these rigs.  I personally happen to like captain macks rigs, as they are affordable.  I also like to use AX lures, as they are well made, and I can get them quick.  I lost rigs the first year, but not anymore.   A lure retreiver is a must.   Anyone who wants to use the rigs, deep water is not a problem unless you let it out 300 feet or more in 30 feet of water.   Trolling shallow water just takes practice, let it out about what you feel is suffcient, and if it bumps, reel it up some, experiment and learn your own depths.   Weight changes, depth changes, speed same.  I wish I could cast a single jig, but most times my customers cannot cast, and the rigs in my opinion are easy and fun.
Every guide should use the method as a backup.   I saw guys guides scrambling for bait yesteday.   Get what you can, and use the rigs, as backup.   Me, as I said before, I walk down, tie on my baits, pickup my customers and go.  I usually always get fish.   I have to admit I am good at it, like it, have a nack for finding fish, and at my age I will not do anything else.    There is no need to email me and ask questions about how to do this, if you want to, call me, I might make it short, but will tell you what I can, in the time I have available.   I sell all the rigs, not cheap, but cheaper than you can order it, have it shipped, and I am on site.   Lots of people are buying other rigs, I dont care, I sell mine as fast as I get them.   I love this method, can you tell...I am also selling the fishing poles, reels, and all other equipment, cheaper than you can find them anywhere.   I have purchased a go-pro camera, I know, like a kid with a new toy.   Anyway I am here to help, not make anyone mad, all guides are good at what they do.  They are human, and yes lots of times asses, but they are under a lot of pressure, they are paid to produce, and produce they will, but do not expect them to teach you the trick of the trades and give locations, they get paid for what they know and do, not by giving information to someone too far or too lazy to put lots of effort into it, as they do.   This lake has everything any fisherman could wish for, learn it, get you a guide like I did some 22 years ago, find out how its done, and then do your own thing.   Do not want to sound ugly, but quit trying to get something valuable for free, its fishing, its fun even if you dont catch fish everytime.   A guide has to, or he is out of business.   Ok, bla bla, hope I helped, and see you on the water.  Heres what its all about....   JD
