Fishing the Americas most exotic and exciting sport fishing adventure destinations
Wyoming - May 18
April 6th I was back on Roosevelt Lake and did VERY well. It almost didn't seem to matter which bait you were throwing as the fish just wanted to eat it. Largemouths were caught on cranks, worms, Senkos and spinnerbaits. Fish were found sitting right in the trees in shallow water. The bass were chasing shad in the backs of coves and spinnerbaits thrown in the middle of the melee were met with solid strikes. I did find some fish in 6-10 ft in the timber and a wacky rigged Senko nailed a couple of good ones.

“You did what to that soft plastic bait?"
This fishing season I fished along side some veteran anglers in the Arizona Bass Federation that pulled fish out of thin air. It’s all about spending time on the water to live and breath fishing to polish your skills. As a child growing up I learned the basics of fishing and also the tools of the trade. All you needed was a fishing rod, a few hooks and weights a bobber and live bait. Life seemed simple back then.
Till next time

I was fortunate to have the day off yesterday in observation of President’s Day. What better way to celebrate then to take the boat out, right?
Sunday I was down with one of the most miserable colds known to man but woke on Monday at 4am with the fishing itch. I hooked up the boat to check out the conditions at Roosevelt Lake. On my prior trip to Rosy two weeks ago the lake looked like chocolate milk. I couldn’t be certain conditions had changed.
I arrived to find the mid-lake area was clear with both ends cloudy to dirty in color. I stopped the boat near a nice rocky shoreline and started throwing crankbaits. Within 4-5 casts I hooked up with a nice 1.5 lb largemouth. I fished and within another 15 minutes landed another similar size fish. I had one more bump and then things came to a stop. I kept working the crank to no avail. I switched to jigs/trailers with no success. I then made a run south towards the marina and found a steep rocky shoreline and worked a robo worm, drop shot style and picked up two more 1.5 lb bass and missed another in about 20 feet of water. Then the fish completing turned off. I couldn’t raise a fish on anything and called it a day at 1pm.
There is an FLW bass tournament on Roosevelt this upcoming Thursday-Saturday and I spoke to a number of the anglers practicing. It was amazing how many of them hadn’t caught a fish in 2-3 days of practice. Things are tough with cold water temps about 52 degrees and the fish are scattered. I can’t say that there is a good pattern especially when the top guys are struggling.
