Pictures from May 2013 fishing trips pn Skiatook Lake

 Here are some fishing pictures from May. This has been a very good month on Skiatook Lake. We have caught bigger fish this year on this lake. The limit is 5 a piece and you can only keep 2 over 20". This has been a good problem, finding enough fish under 20" to finish out the day . Take a look and enjoy just like those below.

Skiatook Lake May 10th

I had the great pleasure to take the Eastin family out today for some hybrid action. The first stop yielded 8 fish which was a good stardt. That bite finally die out so we had heard from another guide on the lake (Dave Clark) that the bite was good on another spot. We reeled in the lines and put them in the rod holders and off we went. We got all set up again and ended finishing out our day at that spot.The fish where in about 22 to 25 ft. of water and very scattered. We caught sum on free lines and sum on down lines. The biggest fish probably went around 6 lbs. 

Skiatook Lake May 8th The Evening Trip

Had some bait left over from a morning trip so my boss ( Mark Morris) calls and wants to bring his father in-law out for a few hours of fishing. We loaded up in the boat and off we went hoping they were still where I had left them biting. We got anchored up and ended up with 5 hybrids. The biggest around 4lbs. It had slowed up alot but a few hours fishing and a few fish is still better then nothing.Here is a picture of Ray with a couple that he caught that evening. Ray it is always a pleasure to have you along side of me fishing my friend.

Skiatook Lake May 8th 2013

Had a trip with 4 very good fisherman at Skiatook Lake. It started out really slow but had a good ending. I think they put 16 fish in the boat. Once we found them, the bite very steady. All fish where caught in 10 to 12 ft. of water. Thanks guys for a fun afternoon and a great trip. Hope to see you soon

Fishing with family and friends April 5th and 6th

 I had a great weekend. I had to of my brothers come down for the weekend and our plan was to hit Chouteau Bend for the sand bass. Jim ( my oldest brother ) brought his wife and a 17 year old young lady by the name of Valerie. We splashed the boat around 8 am Friday morning and we where off looking for sandbass. It took a few stops to pin point them down but when we did it was game on with Valerie leading the way. It took my Brother Bill a few misses to get the hang of it but he put his share of fish in the boat. Jim had been several times in the spring with me so he pretty well had it down pat. We went out the next day and didnt do as well but still had a great time. After waiting in between bites we decided to let Valerie try her hand at some spoonbill. I gave her a little instruction and you would of thought she had been doing this her whole life. The one she hooked weighed in around 55 lbs. Between 2 days of fishing we caught around 130 sandbass and 3 spoonbill.


Skiatook Lake May 10th

Had a great day out on Skiatook Lake today with Frank Hix and James. We started at 7 am and headed to the first and only spot that we fished. We got on a good and steady bite with fishing free lines with no weights. The biggest fish of the day was around 5 lbs.We caught around 20 hybrids and 5 catfish to boot. Thanks for the day on the water guys. See you next week Frank for round 2.

Birch Lake May 5th

 I decided to make a trip to Birch Lake and invited a couple of good friends along. It wasnt a fast and furious but we did end up with 10 nice hybrids. The biggest probably went 6 lbs.We caught some on planner boards and the rest came on free lines. It was a pleasure to have Joe and Chuck in the boat today. They even let me catch a few fish also.Here are some pictures from the days catch.
