This weekend has been incredible fishing. There are little fish all over the lake and I’ve been looking for where the big fish went but they have eluded me for over about 2 weeks now. No one else was catching them either but I kept searching until I found them and fishing was great this weekend. Morning topwater for BIG fish and then move on to bait to catch our unders which are all 18-19” After a quick limit of bait fishing we finish off the trip throwing sassy shad and hooking up at times on every cast. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

Friday Oct. 23 PM (2 People) I had been off for 3 days before this trip and the larger box fish that I had been catching before had moved on me. It was very windy and after making several stops looking for larger fish we finally settled for the small ones that can be found everywhere. I threw <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>cohoes</st1:place></st1:City> and caught small fish and tried bait fishing all over the lake and caught small fish. At this point I’m wandering if there are any big fish left in the lake.<o:p></o:p>

Saturday Oct. 24 AM (2 people) Determined to find the big fish I decide to go back to the early morning topwater and start beating the banks because the big ones are obviously not in the open water yet. After several stops I’m about to give up when I find them :) and it was well worth the effort! We ended up catching a couple of 8’s a couple of 10’s and a 12 with several others over 20”. We made quick work of our last 5 under 20” fish using bait and then switch to throwing <st1:City><st1:place>cohoes</st1:place></st1:City>. No takers, switched to a 4” glow sassy and started hammering them with 3 fish hooked up on several occasions. What a trip! This was what I’ve been searching for to get me excited again. I hate to catching little fish :)<o:p></o:p>

Saturday PM (4 people) I had 2 little ones with me so we decided to bait fish the whole time. I threw one anchor and that was all it took. They were mostly all good fish with all of our overs. Fish stayed with us the whole time until we got tired of catching them<o:p></o:p>

Sunday Oct. 25 AM (3 People) Back to throwing topwaters! The fish were there again but we didn’t get into the monsters like the previous morning. We had to settle for the 6-7 lbers today. We caught all of our overs and several more then switched to bait to finish up with our under fish which didn’t take us long. To polish off the trip we got into them throwing sassy shad until we got tired of catching fish.<o:p></o:p>

Monday Oct. 26 AM (3 people) Man was it windy this morning and that lake looked like the ocean out there. Fishing was great! We fished topwaters, sassy shad, <st1:City><st1:place>cohoes</st1:place></st1:City>, and bait and had success with all of them. Biggest fish came off of topwaters up to 7lbs with an even bigger fish that got away. <o:p></o:p>
