Because Life is Better at the Lake

Grand Lake Fishing Report for April 28, 2014

InSeine Fishing

Fishing on Grand has really heated up the past few weeks. The majority of the fish are shallow. Many can be seen on beds.

Crappie have been shallow for a couple months around Monkey Island. During the past weeks they have also became active in the shallows down lake.

Road Runners with a Bobby Garland Swimming Baby Shad have been working best on the bank. A 1/32 ounce jig head with the same plastic are producing when shooting shallow docks. Electric Chicken and Cajun Cricket seem to be the best colors.

Bass are on beds. I am using a 1/4 ounce tungsten weight, a Gamakatsu Heavy Work NSB hook and Reaction Innovations Sweet beaver in Green Pumpkin for sight fishing. Don't be afraid to get physical with a fish that is locked on a bed. Make them mad. My rod choice for this presentation is a 13 Fishing 7 foot 1 inch eavy rod, Abu Garcia Revos SX 7.1:1 reel, 30 pound Spider Wire Stealth main line and a 15-20 pound fluorocarbon leader.

As for more stained water, I am flipping the same set up but also using a 1/4 ounce War Eagle Skaky Head with a green pumpkin trick worm to cover water between pieces of cover. A 13 Fishing 7 foot 1 inch medium heavy spinning outfit anf Abu Orra S does the work here with 15 pound spider wire main line and an 8-12 pound leader depending on water clarity.

Spring fishing can be the most fun to be had all year. Yet, catching fish off beds comes with a responsibility. Return these fish to the water immediately. Bluegill are close by and are little egg thieves. Respect Grand Lake's resource so we have many more to catch in the future!

Good fishing!
