On the water around 6 AM. Nice day, calm wind. I caught five bass(1, 1/12, 2 and 2 @2 1/2). The first fish was on sparse, shallow pads at 8:30(north side). My first pad fish in this lake. The other fish were caught between 10:30 and 12:30 on south (opposite Rainbow Resort) side. I tried swim baits and jerk baits but mostly threw black/blue jigs and 5" Senkos in green pumpkin. All fish came on the Senko. Man, they like that lure and color. Other than the first fish, all fish came off of docks. All strikes were aggressive. I'm still tying to figure this lake out. I can't get them to take anything but the Senko. Not that I'm complaining but it would be nice to get them to take something else. Next trip I'm going to try buzz baits and frogs too. I'm still looking for the big one(aren't we all?).

Another frustrating day on Tanwax. Calm day, warming trend, prespawn/spawn period. I think Helen Keller could have found a boat load on a day like that. I somehow got two bass to impale themselves on my hook, each about 1 1/2 lbs. I swear Tanwax bass have not seen the rule book. I know there are a bunch of nice fish in that lake but where the hell are they? I still have yet to catch a fish on lily pads and only one on shallow wood. I still have yet to catch a fish on any other lure than a 5" Senko. The only productive(semi-productive?) pattern I've found is under docks. Not next to the docks but skipping the lure under them. I'm serious. No other lure, no other location. Also, I've never caught a fish there before 10:30 AM. Other than one fish all success has come on the side of the lake opposite Rainbow resort. I've tried spinner baits, cranks, worms, Senkos, lizards, topwater and jigs. I like the lake and will continue to try to solve the mystery. Any pearls of wisdom from you guys will be much appreciated. I refuse to let this lake beat me.

Only had about two hours to fish from about 6-8 pm after pulling the kids around on the tube for a while. Punching a jig n pig (black and blue) in the pockets of the pads near timber. Caught one nice 3 pounder. Gonna have to fish it a little more I know there are some nice ones I here. Last year I caught one close to 5 lbs.

Enjoyed a day off work as did my son from school. Put the boat in around 11. Very first cast of the day yielded an aggressive largemouth bass at about 2 pounds but quickly went silent after that. Tried for crappie and perch using jigs, bait but no such luck. Saw a few trout active on the surface but our highlights would be the regular visiting hawks and eagles. Oh well, a great day on the water with my son and daughter.

Took the kids out for some fast action trout fishing. We went the week before with the same results and the kids have been begging to do it again. Waited till evening. Hit the water about 5:30 which was still a little early. Trolling wedding rings green and red tipped with power bait. Once the sun goes behind the trees the fish come up and start busting the surface and the action is nonstop after that. Trolling kinda fast about 1.8 mph in the north end of the lake. I lost count of how many the kids caught and released but the wife said she counted 27 all I know is I was so busy releasing fish and resetting lines I could hardly keep up. Several double hookups and sometimes the fish would hit before the line was all the way out. Noticed a few boats start crowding in on us and following our trolling routs. Hope they caught some too the lake is full of nice 12 in. Fish with some really nice 14+ Mixed in. I'm sure the kids will be asking to go again really soon. About as exciting as the fishing was watching the eagles and osprey fishing too and following the otter as it swam the shoreline.

I got on the water about 7AM and fished til 1:30. Air temp? Hot! It was a beautiful day with a light breeze that felt great. Fishing was tough though. I caught 4 bass between 1-1 1/2 lbs. As usual, I didn't get a sniff til late morning. The first fish came off brush and wood in 2 feet of water. The other three were all under docks. All fish were caught on the shore opposite Rainbow resort in the upper half of the lake. All fish were caught on 5" Senkos, green pumpkin/black fleck. Oddly, every one I've caught out of Tanwax(every one) were on that lure and color. I've tried topwater, spinner baits, cranks and lizards but nothing seems to work for me. Also, every fish except one have come off of that shoreline. How weird is that? Amazingly, even the little fish fight hard. Oh, by the way, the perch were everywhere. I couldn't I couldn't keep them off my lure.

I started out in the outtake. I was throwing a jig and a strike king shimmy sick. When I was working the shimmy stick, I saw one come out, I stopped my worm the fish just swam up and took it. As soon add I set, the fish went crazy. I thought I had her whooped, then she took one more long run and pulled the hook in the pads. My plan was to fish way back in the outtake, but it was to noisy with lawnmowers, parties and brush burning n. I ran down the lake to where the creek comes out and worked the area with a spinner bait. Then decided to move father down to where it flattens out. Again with the shimmy stick, I felt a bite. I cranked my drag down this time though. I horsed in a 3.7 lmb. My first one of the year. I stuck with that bait and caught one more about 2.5. I dug that one over a tree though! I left for to the lake at 430 and stopped fishing at 730. Water was 59 to 62. All fish were in about 2 ft of water. Weight less Texas rigged 5 inch shimmy stick. All three fish fought the hardest of any bass I have ever caught.

I was hoping to get my first large mouth of the year, but no such luck. I broke one off next to a dock on a crank bait. I only saw the wake of the fish run back under the dock, then hearing it splash and throw my crank bait, which I recovered. The trout loved that same crank bait. I caught 3 triploids and a bunch of stockers.
