Lake level is 705.87 and water temp is 43 in the lower part of the lake.  The Grand remains stained while most of the rest of the lake is clear.

Crappie fishing has been a little slow in the mid-lake area but there have been some “biguns” taken.  Steve Blake had a “toad” that by most measurement was almost if not a 3lb. Slab taken from 20 ft right off the bottom.  I have found tons of small fish in the trees about 25-30 feet deep on the bluffs….It’s interesting that the White bass  are still hanging around on those deep bluffs also and if you drop in on a band of shad, you have no idea what is going to hit….

Cody’s Bait & Tackle has a complete new supply of my 1/4 and 1/8 oz short shank jigs which have been the ticket for Steve Blake and I for crappie, whites, and even a walleye or two…

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those folks who took the time to fish with me this year and I look forward to seeing you again on the water.

That’s about it for December 21, 2020. Help the other guy when you can and remember your life jacket works best when it’s worn…..Merry Christmas all, Ole Bob
