Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Capt. George Welcome
October 18, 2005
Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

The artificial bite has been doing pretty good if you are in the right spot

but it is not lake wide. Saturday the area we have been fishing in the south end

of the Farm was alive and well and the bass responded to Senkos, (dark colors),

spinner bait, (gold/gold willow), and black worms. The major key was working the

area, and to accomplish that you needed to anchor and comb the spot over and

over. Even with drift socks out, the wind was too much to keep things as slow as

they needed to be. In addition to the spot that we have been catching in, we

also tried the SW and the pump house. The SW provided one bass for us and the

pump house was a zero. The wind was stopping the limited current and also made

it difficult to anchor and fish. With forty+ bass in the boat we called it quits

somewhere between 12 and 1:00 PM.

Today we were off before daylight, but with the full moon and clear skies it

was well lit up out there. Heading to our southern spot we anchored and the

catching was immediate. We used the same baits as Saturday, however Senkos were

the only thing working. When the bite stopped we tried closer to the south levee

with only a couple of bass to reward our efforts and a big decrease in size.

Moving east to Pinball Alley we continued working the Senkos, and then added a

rattle trap in chrome/blue. The rattle trap has not been working, but today it

would prove once again why it is one of the best hunters out there. We worked

eastward until we came to the east N/S ditch and then headed north.

It became pitch and burn and the bass liked it. It wasn't anything close to a

fish on every cast but the three to four pound bass we were catching came often

enough to keep us very interested. As we approached the intersection we moved

over to the middle N/S ditch and worked our way to its end in the south end of

the lake. There were less players on this run and the ones that did hit were

smaller, but bass nonetheless. We opted to head back to make one more run on the

east ditch. A few bass later we called it a day at about 2:00 PM. Although we

didn't have as many as Saturday, the thirty six that we did catch were on

average bigger and meaner. Our big fish for the day was just over four pounds,

with most of our catch today in that three-four pound range.
