Yep, you read it right, that is not a type-o, and we did put 111 bass in the boat yesterday.
I had mentioned to Rick at the beginning that I wanted to measure, weigh and photograph every fish we caught on this trip so I could make a slide show to post on here. We both agreed with this, but it never happened. We did measure, weigh, and get a snap shot of a few, and I’ll post the pics, but we didn’t follow through with it like we had planed. It takes to long to do all of that, and the bite was on. On the way home last night, I thought about how many different areas we fished, it was only nine different areas. The top water bite was some what slow in the morning, and very slow at dusk, but the plastic bite was good all through out the day and into the night with the moon light.


This one was a little over 5lbs.

Awesome day out there Doug, that's the way to hammer them. Thanks for the report and now I have to sneak out of work and hook up the boat to get out there.
;) ;D

I have no clue what was going on in the discharge, but there were a ton of boats in there all day and into the night. My guess would be that they were on a good dink bite. Every time we got on some dinks, which are fish less than two pounds, we would move on to find some bigger fish.

But this was a trip that Rick will never forget; heck he put 51 in the boat. We had a lot of good fish that we never took snap shots of, and now I wish we had of. There was defiantly some rod bending, and fish jumping action going on, that‘s for sure.

This will be a trip we will never forget Doug. I will be setting the hook in my sleep for a while. I didn’t even mind riding home with Fayette bugs inside the truck. I’m worn out for sure but it hurts so good! Tap, tap my friend.

Yea I put well over 30 in my kayak as well yesterday. I caught 12 off TW in the first 45 minutes. I caught them on plastics all day long as well. At dusk, I fished a few wind blown coves and points and the bugs were balled up on top of the water. The fish were attacking them like crazy. The fish were so thick I could scoop them up with a net. I was catching a fish every single cast on a WW. It was a great day except for the wind!

Arai, we say you out there yesterday, man you were all over that lake. At one point, I thought about stopping by and asking you if you needed a tow some where. You were leaving three fingers. I drove into three fingers, didn't like the way it looked, turned around and went to several other different places.

Those fish you see eating the bugs, those are Tilapie. All the small baitfish eat them during the night also.

I saw tilapia as well......but there were several places where the bass were just as thick. Anything I threw in the water would get gobbled up!

Yea I paddled my a$$ off yesterday. I fished almost every cove on the Oak Thicket side and crossed the lake several times. I was worn out when I left.......and still tired today. HAHA

Well tell me this. Do you guy's have any thumbs left? Great pics!
That's funny that you would bring that up, because I was just checking mine out this morning and they're not all that bad. But I flipped a lot of my fish into the boat. Just when they are come up on their tail at the boat, I flip them in. You can ask anyone who has fished with me, just as I am about to flip one in, I always tell em to get in this boat.

Now I did let a fish get me pretty good though. As I was reaching down to grab one and remove the hooks, it flopped and a hook went into my right hand pointer finger knuckle. Now I grab it up tight and I tell Rick, hey man, I’m going to need your help here my friend. Grab those needle nose pliers and get the hooks out of this fish. He was very care full on getting the hooks out of the fish with out it popping out and driving the hook further into my knuckle. I had hell getting this hook out. I tried to push it on through so could cut the barb off and it wouldn’t go any further. I tried to remove it the way it went in and it wouldn’t move. After jacking around with it for a few minutes, I got it out. Pitched the bait back onto the water and continued to catch fish.

Nice job! I've had some of my best days on Fayette in October. Seems like the fishing really turns on with the cooler weather. :)

way to go Doug.  That trip may be a tough one to top
It may tough to beat, but I won’t give up, because one trip to Fayette by myself a couple of years a go about this time of the year, I put 97 bass in the boat. And it wasn't just a guess; I used a counter to keep up with my catch that day.
But yeah, this last trip was an awesome one for sure.

I just got a call from a friend who wants me go out with him tomorrow. Not real sure I want to go, but I’m leaning towards it anyways.
