Report from Dan yesterday at Snyder was water temps around 61, 8 fish landed, two shorts, and 6 missouris between 17 & 19. Says it was somewhat slow. He'll probably be at the casino today, lol. Doubt he wants to fight the snow at browns. Rain for tomorrow has been apparently put on hold until the PM hours...so we may miss the wet stuff. Much better to deal only with cold than wet AND cold. Oh well, fishing will of course be tough following this cold front, so at least we have that to look forward to...lol

So water temps were 61 at Snyder yesterday. What will they be at Browns come tomorrow morning? Lows tonight (or at 6 AM tomorrow) is 30 right now. Strong North winds for the rest of today, into tonight, switching to the West by morning. Rain/snow until 3 AM or so. Any guesses? I am going to guess 54 degrees.

Get the Gunfish out and slam them on top in the morning!!! Can't wait, lets get this deal going!!!

My brief browns summary:

Started fishing a stretch of bank I like to fish on the outside bend. Bank is full of rocks, rubble, and laydowns. I began throwing a chatterbait and hit a 16.5 on my 3rd cast. Well, three casts later, my chatterbait was lost to a snag and that was the end of that (last time I forget to pack more than 1 of those). We fished down and followed through going down all the houses and to the campground point, me using mostly a crank. After no luck through the houses, we went back to our shoreline. At this point, I switched to a large beaver and began fishing very slowly in the wind. Picked up another fish right away, a 16”. Then 15 min later his a 17.5”er on the beaver. Hit another 15.5” 10 minutes later. Then another 15” 2 min later. Made it to the end of the shoreline, and went back to the beginning of it to fish again. Figured that if we could pick up 1 or two bites per pass along this 200 yard piece of shoreline, that would be about par for the course on the day. Seemed like another day where 1 bite per hour would give a guy a shot. After going back to the beginning of our shoreline to make another pass, marc and I doubled on 14”ers. As we do this, we realize that the trolling motor has gone wrong and the petal is messed up. At 1130 am, our trolling motor is officially out of commission. We decided to continue fishing the shorelines and anchor from spot to spot. This allowed me to upgrade one missouri with a 16.5”er, and mark picked up two missouris (17 & 15). We went the final two hours without a fish. Marc had 3 on the card for the day with two missouris, all on a small beaver. He also lost a missouri right at the boat as his non-boater had the net extended and ready, but the fish spit the rogue. I had a 5 missouri limit overall, with 7 fish total caught on the day. All on the beaver for me, except for the one early chatterbait fish. I did give about 60-90 minutes worth of time to a crank, but had nothing working on it.

Congrats to Scott for a huge limit.

You kept it on page 4, so it wasn't to long. Pretty nice average fish on the day. Bet my review goes across to page #5.

Mike and I's day started out waiting by the boat ramp for boat #11 to be called. After what seemed like 3 or 4 hours, we finally got to leave. We zip around the bend and sure enough, there sits Scottie on the bank we were planning to hit. Further up we could see Dan. So I shut down and start fishing rocks. I hit a 16.25" Chatterbait fish on cast #5. About 20 minutes and 20 yards later hit a 17.75" Spinnerbait fish. I am fishing the baits slowly and not moving very quickly as you can tell. After another 30 minutes and 30 yards a decision has to be made. It is 8 AM, haven't had a bite for a while. Scottie is still working away from us, Dan seems to be holding serve, Jim C. has just pulled up behind us close to where we started. So we turn around and start fishing back towards Jim. At 8:30 Mike hits a 16" fish on a Shaky Head Worm between where my two fish came from. We have reached Jim as well, so we flip around and start back towards Scottie. By 9, no more bites. Jim is behind us, Scottie is working towards us, time to go. I put the T-Motor on high and start across the lake thinking I will fish the other side of the lake. About 1/2 across I look up and see Cota idling our way. He stops, looks at us and goes back up lake, I make about 10 casts and head out, it just didn't feel right. Decide to go back to rocks, want to fish the deeper rock point. Get up that way and Chris R. is fishing up the point and somebody else is fishing down the point. They are about 100 yards apart. Think about splitting the difference between them and cut them both off (lol), but decide to just move past the one boat and start fishing. Fish here until 10, nothing. See that nobody is fishing the reeds across from the boat ramp. Dave is pounding the area by the ramp, but nobody is fishing the reeds. So motor that way thinking I will figure out a way to catch them here or just come in with 2 fish on the day. Takes until 11:00, finally I pull out rod #12 on the day, a spinning rod with a G4 tube rigged on 8lb Seaguar Carbon Pro line. I kind of swim the bait through the reeds and finally have one slam it, 15.50". Takes about 20 minutes, catch a 14.50". Now I have 4, decide I am staying until I get #5. At 12:00 make a cast and the rod triples over. Mike is already on the net, fish comes up....little guy that had me wrapped up. 11.75". About 10 minutes later though I finally hit #5, another 14.50" fish. But these are not the right fish for this lake, stay until 12:30, have 1 more slam my tube but miss him, decide to go hunting for the right fish. Never found them. Only 1 more bite for us, a 15" eats the tube on reeds up the lake. 4 Missouris, 2 Clubs, 1 Short for me.

Mike has some rib issues most of the day and after catching his 1 fish pretty much sits in the middle of the boat (it helped his rib issue) and makes a cast once in a while. 1 Missouri day for Mike.

Overall I was pretty happy with what I caught and where I finished. I never really got comfortable until 11 or so. Then felt I had to leave those fish to search for larger ones. But was able to grind out a limit and a good finish, so overall was OK with it all. Now if gas prices would just drop and it would get warmer, everything would be good.

Alex and I headed down toward the beaver dam at "blast" and I expected the full contingent to be spread out in Solano cove as usual - but it was pretty open so we started fishing along the north reed bank - about 4 or 5 casts in Alex hit one on a chatter bait (15.5") - we worked our way around the end and started back up the south side - the wind kept pushing the back of the boat ahead of me - nothing. We worked that back and forth about three times without a bump. We pulled into the dock so that I could get my tackle bag and found Jim and Nathan trying to repair the trolling motor. We headed over past the swim beach and started working the rocks. The wind kept pushing us. We eventually overtook Rupert and Lou and met Kaptain and Mark comming the over way. I pulled around Kaptain (running Mark's boat - how can Mark be Guide of the Day if Kaptain is running the boat Question )- and caught my first one (14") on a junebug jig near the first dock. I had started to reel in when he hit it and I never got a chance to practice my hook set. We worked up and down the rocks for several passes and I managed to stick another one (15") just out in front of the same dock, right at the boat as I was reeling in. So Alex and I decided that the pattern was on moving baits at this point. We made the run north and started to work the rocks and laydowns - Alex picked up a 14.5" on a Crank Bait and another one (16") (maybe on a ring fry - can't remember). We worked all the way up north as far as we could go and then moved back to the on the south shore again. Alex picked up a 16" on a black spinner bait with a yellow trailer - I go nothin. We headed on down to the cove and tried to work it counter clockwise - I moved over to the north side and cut Dan off - picked up a 13.5" again with my junebug jig. We worked the cove for the rest of the day and Alex picked up two more on his black/yellow spinner bait. On the day, I had 3 (1 MO) and Alex had 6 (4 MO's). This is still one of my favorite lakes on our schedule - just wish the durn weather would cooperate better.
