Brookville Lake Fishing Report

Well it’s officially deer hunting season and all my fishing buddies are in the woods.  It’s hard to find people to fish with this time of year so I just fish alone fairly often.  I enjoy the solitude sometimes to be honest.  And it’s less embarrassing when you call for the net again on a stick – don’t act like you don’t do that too…

So I headed to the lake this morning at 9AM.  Air temp were in the forties and water temps around 57 degrees with decent clarity (2 or 3 ft).  Winds out of the southwest 10 – 15 mph.  Overcast.  These are perfect conditions for fishing and the for once the fish agreed.

I started out throwing some Cincy Fisher Blade Baits but no takers.  I switch to a spinner bait and nothing.  Tried the beloved Shad Rap and more rejection.  Then I threw a square bill and things turned around quickly.  The fish ate this bait with enthusiasm.  I’d mostly parallel the bank since I was fishing alone the smallmouth bass were chasing it.  I knew they were chasing because I’d feel a slack and then a couple seconds later they’d eat it.  I was moving the bait fast too – almost a burn.  This is how I love to fish so I was glad the pattern worked out.

I caught 8 keeper bass with the biggest being in 3.25 to 3.5# range according to my hand held scale.  Only 2 keeper large mouth.  I caught a couple eater sized walleye so that will be good for dinner tonight.  I must have caught 10 more dink bass.  Overall a very good day for me.

The crankbait was a 1.5 square bill that I paint.  I don’t have them listed on the web site yet but if you want some let me know.  They are $6 each and come with Mustad KVD hooks.  Just send an email (bryan@bkmay.com) or call me (513-378-6685) to order.

Tight lines!
