Broken Bow Fishing Report

Ken Simpson sends us this report from Lake Broken Bow:

Broken Bow sand bass have finished their run and the water temperature up river is 64 from Panther Creek back to Holly Creek. The main part of the lake is running from 63 to 66. Black bass are doing great on crank baits and top water in the shallows. Crappie is fair in 15 to 20 feet in the tree stumps and along steep banks.

Editor's Note: Thanks for the report Ken! Got any hawg pictures to share?

Tenkiller Bass Biting


Darris Smith sends us this report from Lake Tenkiller:

The water temp is rising and the bass are too! I went last weekend for a 3 day weekend. Thursday night a front moved in. Pretty much tough fishing on Friday, cold and windy. I did manage to catch a few and this Smallmouth on a clown colored rogue. I had another try to kill it 3 times but missed it. I couldn't get it to hit at anything else.

Saturday turned off much nicer, still windy and cool, but warming in the afternoon. I caught some real nice large mouth. A few 2 pounders, lots of 13 inchers, and this one in the 5# range.

Sunday was another good day. I had caught at least 15 in the 1 to 2 pound range, mostly on jigs. The spinner bait bite turned on after things started warming up. They seemed to have been on the shallow, wind blown, muddy banks. When they hit, you knew it. It was like it was there only chance for a meal and they were taking it now! They would hit it like a truck rolling down hill the other direction. This one almost took my rod & reel with him!

I'm going again this weekend, well, at least Saturday before the front comes in on Sunday, should make for some great fishing.

Editor's Note: Thanks for the report Darris! You should go Pro!

Big Bass Biting at Steed


Aspiring Pro Mike Diehl
sent us his latest report from Lake Tom Steed:

Doug - I just wanted to thank you and

Fishbelly Lures for helping me break my personal best of 6.0lb.

I caught two nice toads today while fishing a Fishbelly Hawg Shad 3.5" split tail. The smaller bass is 4lb 14oz and my new personal best is the much larger 6lb 8oz. I caught both these bass in less than three feet of water twitching a Fishbelly Hawg shad next to the bank. What a way to start the summer!!!!

Editor's Note: Congratulations Mike! Glad we could help - Fishbelly lures really do work!!

Lake Kaw Bass Biting


Scott Ramage sends in this report from Lake Kaw:

I was at Lake Kaw today shore fishing for bass and anything else that was interested. I am new to Oklahoma and it was my first time fishing Kaw. I did well fishing around the west marina using a Texas rigged 7.5 inch curly tail watermelon worm with a small sliding tube weight on the line to bounce it off the bottom. Attached a photo of a nice largemouth I caught which appeared to be full of eggs. I know that Kaw is a good crappie fishing lake so when I hooked a 4 pound Drum I thought I had hit the jackpot!

Editor's Note: Thanks for the report Scott!

OK Fisherman lands big FLA Bass

largemouth bass
David Powers of Oklahoma sends us this fishing report:

I went to Florida last week on business and was so fortunate to get in a day of fishing. Thought I would share a photo of a big girl that I caught slow rolling spinnerbaits.

She was a little over 10lbs, caught using a gold blade spinnerbait. The lake was Lake Maitland, part of a chain of private city lakes in Orlando. The guide service I used was Swanny's Bass Guide service.

Editor's Note: Thanks for the report David! What a great fishing trip - I'm jealous!

Tom Steed Walleyes


Aspiring Pro Mike Diehl sends us this report from Lake Tom Steed:

The fishing on Tom Steed has been tough lately for both Bass and Crappie, but it looks like my luck has changed just a little.
I caught my first Walleye today, 6lbs. 24", while fishing a 1/8 oz spinner bait on a micro light rod and reel with 6 lb test.

The Walleye are starting to spawn and are making their beds close to the bank. I was really shocked when it came to the top and I started to lip it like a bass - good thing I didn't because this thing has got some teeth!

Editor's Note:
Thanks for the report Mike. Glad you didn't lose any fingers!
