It was an absolutely beautiful day, with the sun rising over the Wichita Mountains and nothing but blue skies and light winds. We launched from the Hick's Mountain boat ramp on the southeast end of the lake and met up with Jim, who was already on a honey hole. He recommended bottom-bouncing with slabs, so Mike tied on a chartreuse and black Lead Babies Ghost Minnow Slab and I tied on a light blue and white Hawg Hustler Slab from Klassic Lures.
We immediately started catching fish and lots of them; hybrids, catfish, bass and even a drum. We caught so many, we stopped counting. The fish at Lake Altus Lugert really like those slabs! Later in the morning, we trolled the northern part of the lake and I hooked into a nice walleye; 20.75 inches & 2.5 lbs.
If you haven't been to Lake Altus Lugert, I highly recommend a trip. Not only is there great fishing, but there's the beautiful mountains, Quartz Mountain Resort, Nature Park, Nature Center, Cedar Valley Hiking Trail, rock climbing, golf, beaches, swimming, ATV, sand dunes and more. In November, there's trout fishing in the river below the dam.
