FISHING REPORT FOR APRIL 14, 2012.

HI,

TONY BATTAGLIA HERE REPORTING ON  FISHING SEASON FOR 2012.  I HEAR THAT I MISSED SOME FANTASTIC FISHING EARLY THIS YEAR DURING THE MONTH OF MARCH. THE WEATHER WAS EXCEPTIONALLY WARM THIS SPRING AND THE BIG BASS WERE HITTING A SENSATIONAL LURE CALLED THE ALABAMA RIG.

THE PICTURE HERE IS FROM A TRIP WITH GUIDE BILL BECK AND FISHING BUDDY AND SPORTS WRITER DAVE RAWSON AND MYSELF. WE WENT OUT FOR 4 HOURS ON APRIL 10th AT 7:30 AM AND CAUGHT AROUND  15 TO 17 FISH WITH 6  BEING KEEPER SIZE. I THINK WE WOULD HAVE DONE BETTER IF A COOL FRONT HADN'T MOVED IN THIS MORNING. THE BIGGEST FISH HERE WAS A NICE 5 LB. LARGE MOUTH CAUGHT BY THE GUIDE BILL BECK.

I WENT OUT WITH GUIDE BUSTER LOVING THE MORNING OF APRIL 5th AND WE CAUGHT AROUND 14 OR 15 FISH THE LARGEST BEING A 4LB SMALL MOUTH THAT I CAUGHT. WE ALWAYS RELEASE THE LARGE SPAWNING FISH. 
THE FISHING IS GETTING BETTER EACH DAY NOW AS THE WATER TEMPERATURE KEEPS RISING.  WE USED A QUARTER OUNCE JIG HOOK AND A PERCH COLOR TUBE OR GETSIT.

FROM NOW ON THROUGH MAY AND JUNE THE FISHING WILL BE GREAT SO IF YOU CAN PLAN YOUR TRIP NOW. 
HOPE TO SEE YOU ON THE WATER AND REMEMBER THE FISHING IS ALWAYS GREAT ON TABLE ROCK LAKE.
             GOD BLESS.


                     SEE YOU ON THE WATER,

                                         TONY BATTAGLIA
