FISHING REPORT FOR SUNDAY MORNING MAY 8TH.
 
THIS MORNING WE WENT OUT WITH FISHING GUIDE MIKE WEB AT 7 A. M. THE BITE WAS GOOD FOR THE FIRST 2 AND A HALF TO 3 HOURS AND SLOWED UP THE LAST HOUR AND A HALF WHEN THE BRIGHT SUN ROSE HIGH IN THE SKY. WE CAUGHT OVER THIRTY FISH MOSTLY ALL SMALL MOUTH AND OVER FIFTY PERCENT WERE KEEPERS OVER 15 INCHES LONG. WE USED A GETSIT TYPE TUBE WITH A QUARTER OUNCE JIG HOOK, PUKE IN COLOR. THERE WERE THREE OF US IN THE BOAT, MIKE WEB THE GUIDE , DENNIS BARRETT, MY NEIGHBOR AND ME. THE BITE IS GETTING BETTER EACH DAY AS THE WATER WARMS TO SPAWNING TEMPERATURES BUT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU GET OUT ON THE LAKE EARLY LIKE 6 TO 7 A.M. FOR THE EARLY BITE.
  ALWAYS REMEMBER THE FISHING IS GREAT ON TABLE ROCK LAKE.

 FISHING REPORT FOR SATURDAY MAY 7TH 2011.

Better Homes & GardensTHIS MORNING ONE OF MY FISHING BUDDIES,  DAVE RAWSON AND I (THE SHORT GUY)  WENT OUT WITH GUIDE BILL BECK (THE BIG GUY) FROM 8A.M. TIL NOON. THE BITE WAS VERY GOOD FOR ABOUT TWO AND A HALF HOURS AND WE CAUGHT EIGHT NICE KEEPER SMALL MOUTH. AFTER 10:30 OR SO AND AFTER THE BRIGHT SUN CAME UP THE FISHING SLOWED  SOME BUT WE HAD A GREAT TIME AS THE WEATHER WAS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS OUT ON THE  LAKE TODAY. I BELIEVE WE SHOULD GET OUT THERE AT 6:30 OR 7AM FROM NOW ON, THE EARLILER THE BETTER. WE USED THE 4 INCH GREEN PUMKIN GETSIT TYPE TUBE AGAIN TODAY IN CATCHING MOST OF OUR FISH. WE WERE IN 20 TO 30 FEET OF WATER WITH THE BOAT AND FISHED POINTS, FLATS AND RIDGES. IT LOOKS LIKE THE FISH ARE REALLY STARTING TO MOVE UP TO SPAWN NOW THAT THE WATER TEMPERATURE IS RISING ABOVE 60 DEGREES. ANOTHER THING WE HAVE NOTICED THIS YEAR IS THAT THE PERCENTAGE OF KEEPER SIZE FISH CAUGHT HAS BEEN WAY UP CLOSE TO FIFTY PERCENT.

THE LAST HALF OF APRIL, NOW THROUGH THE REST OF MAY AND JUNE IS THE BEST TIME TO FISH TABLE ROCK LAKE FOR SOME OF THE  FINEST BASS FISHING.

 A SPECIAL NOTE TO ALL: CONTRARY TO ALL THE BAD NEWS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD, THE ROADS AROUND HERE ARE NOT FLOODED THE LAKE IS TEN OR 12 FEET HIGHER DUE TO ALL THE EXTRA RAINS THIS SPRING BUT EVERYTHING IS UNDER  CONTROL.  OUR DOCKS AT STILLWATERS ARE ACCESSABLE AND BEST OF ALL THE FISHING IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC THIS YEAR. 

SO DON'T ALLOW ALL THE NEWS MEDIA TO KEEP YOU FROM COMING AND ENJOYING SOME GREAT FISHING ON TABLE ROCK LAKE.

                     SEE YOU OUT ON THE LAKE,

                                         TONY BATTAGLIA
