Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Capt. George Welcome
July 7, 2006
Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

It's hard to believe that we are into the middle of the year already. The

thunder boomers are rolling through each afternoon, but so far full days of

fishing are done prior to their arrival. Keeping an eye on the weather this time

of the year is very important as you don't want to be caught in the back end of

the Marsh/Farm when one of these storms come rolling through. Ground strike

lightening is extremely common with these summer storms, so don't be a

statistic. If you see them or hear them it's time to get off the water. Better

safe to fish tomorrow than to be surveying roots in the ground.

Six trips so far this month have shown us a lot of up and down in the

catching department. A couple of areas have produced 20 - 40 fish days but they

have not proven to be consistent. However there have  been some nice fish

caught and everybody has had a good time out here. The Farm side has been the

best for us and wood has been an important part of successes. The south end of

the the west N/S ditch is producing. Rattle traps, Senkos, spinner baits, and

Bomber Long A's have all worked with the rattle trap leading the way in

production. Senkos/5" any dark color; Rattle traps in chrome/blue; white spinner

baits/gold willow; and the Bomber Long A/gold shiner. Spinner baits/3/8 ounce -

Rattle traps/1/2 ounce.

The spillway was open for 2 days but the fish never sensed the current and

moved in.

It's said that keeping the bait wet is the secret to catching the most fish

and this past week that is a solid proposition. Perseverance has led to catches

in the 25-30 fish area. The temperatures have been up and the breezes down, but

all of our trips the guys have proven to be excellent fishermen with a "git er

done" attitude.

Yesterday Scott took Tim our for a day on the Indian River and the action was

hot and heavy with a mix of Trout, Jacks, Lady Fish and huge Sail Cats. Scott

reported sail cats in the the 5 - 7 pound range.

Heading out to the lake shortly looking for the big ones. Give us a shout and

we will be glad to get you out. Our sale is still on for a short while longer so

give us a holler and get in on some Stick Marsh summertime fishing. See you out
