This Grand Lake Fishing Report is brought to us by Rusty Pritchard of Pritchard’s Guide Service. Make sure you congratulate Rusty on the birth of his son Bentley Gauge on May 14th!
Fishing is starting to get awesome!! We’ve been hammering on the crappie the last three weeks on the banks. They are tapering off now. You can still catch some males with the occasional female on the banks still.
The whitebass are really going great!! I’ve been taking several guide trips here lately for them and we really have been doing great! Most of my activity has been in the Elk River arm. Morning times we have been doing really well up past the Cayuga area and up in the river where it narrows up. Everything we have been cleaning still has eggs on them!
Last Thursday we even got into some great hybrid action mixed in with the whitebass. I’ve been throwing the new Go-Go Minnow made by Fle-Fly. They should be out in the stores by next week at Sports Center and Littlefield bait shops. They are whitebass and crappie catching machines!!
Seems later in the afternoon the Wolf Half Acres and Ice Box Bluff areas really pick up!! There we have been using the Bendable Minnow also made by Fle-Fly. Also heard some reports of some action around the Weed And Bird Island areas.
The Bowfishing action is really heating up now!! Shooting a lot of fish at night right now! Some of the buffalo are still spawning. We are seeing a lot of gar along with buffalo. Bowfishing is really a fast growing sport! Most nights we are filling up the boat!!
Catfish are biting really well up in the river shallow. The blues are pushing up the river to prepare to spawn. They are being caught on cut shad and whitebass.
If your wanting a guided trip give me a call and ill get you on some awesome action. If you are wanting to try the Bowfishing I furnish all the equipment and no experience needed! I can teach anybody to shoot from kids to the young at heart!
