Water clarity on the south side of lake is normal; north side is still a little murky from all this wind.
Wind at my house was almost calm when I left but the wind there was something else.
Got on the water around 7pm and was off by around 1:30 am.
Bait fish were plentiful every where we went to fish.
Fish caught, --- around 10 each. (Not to Bad)
Big fish -- just a little over 5lbs.
4 lb. fish that were caught -- 2
The rest were very healthy 3 lb. fish.
Most of our catch was caught on T/R plastic around the rip rap area.
Top water bite was real slow, but we did manage to get at few.
The biggest fish was caught on shallow crank bait fished along the rip rap.

From my observation, we got there way too late. I think the bite is at its best around 4pm till about 10 pm. All of the fish we caught had bulging bellies by the time we got there, therefore they were full. We tried fishing the grass a little but had no takers. We fished a few drop offs around some point and hooked one little dink that spit it back at us.

I went swimming after a rod that went overboard. Got the rod, but I forgot to remove my prescription glasses and cell phone before doing so. The cell phone is looking a little on the promising side and it may survive, but the glasses are history. So if you catch a fish with a pair of trifocals on, they’re mine. Other than jumping in after a rod, the trip was fun. We caught some decent size fish.

Thanks for the report fishytx. You might try leaving the cell phone in a bag of dry rice for a few days. It worked well for me with an iPod.

I haven't had as much luck on Fayette this year with the topwater bite as in years past???...I just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience.

The top water bite is good on Fayette if fished in the right areas.
But it's like any other lake, some days are better than others. Try around the reeds in about two foot of water. The key is to let it set a little longer than normal, then just twitch it a few times and let it set again. Don't pop it, just a few little twitches and hold on.


Put everything back together in my cell phone and it works great.
Knock on wood right. I mean I just put it back together, so I hope it continues to work okay. I can send and receive phone calls, but I haven't tried the picture taking part of it yet.
