GOOD MORNING,
                      FIRST OF ALL I WANT TO ASSURE ALL YOU FISHERMEN  THAT ALTHOUGH OUR AREA HAS HAD SOME EXCESSIVE RAINS LATELY AND OUR LAKE IS AT  HIGHER LEVELS, OUR STILLWATERS MAINTENANCE STAFF HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF MAKING SURE OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE LAKE ACCESS, DOCK ACCESS AND ELECTRIC AT SOME OF OUR DOCKS. THERE ARE NO BIG  PROBLEMS AT STILLWATERS RESORT TO KEEP YOU FROM ENJOYING OUR SPRING FISHING  WHICH  IS GETTING BETTER EACH DAY. 
 
REPORT FOR 4/29/11

ON FRIDAY MORNING  APRIL 29TH WE WENT OUT ABOUT 8AM AND STARTED TO FISH WITH A GREEN PUMPKIN 4" TUBE OFF OF POINTS. WE PLACED THE BOAT IN ABOUT 20 TO 30 FEET OF WATER AND  CASTED TOWARD THE SHORE AND FLAT POINTS INTO ABOUT 15 TO 20 FEET OF WATER. WE BEGAN TO PICK UP NICE KEEPER SMALL MOUTH IN THE 15 TO 18 INCH CLASS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.  WE FISHED THE TUBE SLOWLY BOUNCING IT SLOWLY ABOUT 3 TO 4 INCHES AT A TIME. IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER I SAID SLOWLY, ABOUT AS FAST AS A NIGHT CRAWLER CRAWLS. WHEN YOU FEEL A BITE OR PICK UP GIVE THE FISH ABOUT FOUR TO SIX INCHES OF LINE BY JUST DROPPING THE ROD TIP AND THEN SET THE HOOK AND REEL HIM IN. WHEN I TELL YOU THESE THINGS I MEAN THEM FOR THE NOVICE FISHERMEN AND NOT YOU EXPERIENCED GUYS OUT THERE.

ANOTHER THING I ALWAYS SAY IS THAT A NOVICE FISHERMEN SHOULD TRY TO GO OUT WITH A PROFESSIONAL GUIDE FOR AT LEAST A HALF A DAY, IF HE CAN AFFORD IT, WHEN A PERSON FIRST COMES TO A LAKE THAT HE ISN'T ACQUAINTED WITH.  IT'S ALWAYS BEST TO GET THE SCOOP ON WHAT IS HAPPENING AT THE PRESENT TIME.
 
THIS MORNING  TURNED OUT VERY WELL AS WE CAUGHT 28 FISH AND 20 OF THEM WERE KEEPERS. I MIGHT NOTE HERE THAT NOT EVERYDAY IS AS GOOD AS TODAY BUT SOME ARE EVEN BETTER. MAN HASN'T YET FIGURED OUT THE FISH AT TIMES WHO HAS A BRAIN AS LARGE AS A PEA.

THE GUIDE AGAIN WAS BUSTER LOVING AND MY FISHING PARTNER WAS DAVID RAWSON.
 
                THE FISHING IS ALWAYS GREAT ON TABLE ROCK LAKE.
                                                                      GOD BLESS, TONY BATTAGLIA
