Lead Babies Slab's wear them out on Tom Steed

Sand bass fishing with Lead Babies Slabs at Lake Tom Steed Oklahoma
Wow, what a day I had Tuesday on Lake Tom Steed fishing for sand bass. All I can say is "Fish On and on and on.!!!!!!" I had started out looking for large mouth but they were not to be found so I decided to try the sand bass and what a blast I had. I simply could not keep up with the fish using the Lead Babies Slabs.

I was using both the 2oz Long minnows and the Rattlin Mary fishing the Long Minnows in deep water where the glow in the dark model simply slayed them in the stained conditions and the Rattlin Mary excelled in the shallows where there wasn't much room for the bait to fall. The Rattlin Mary works great both deep and shallow but when your fishing in only two to three feet the rattles on this lure brings them running. At times they were hitting this lure so hard it was actually flying out of the water on the up stroke and I couldn't stop laughing.

Fifty fish later I simply couldn't fish any more I was just flat out tired. The sand bass were great and ready to fight, and fight they did!

If your looking for a great fight and a great slab to do it with pick up some Lead Babies Slabs from the folks at Alluring Lures and Tackle in Cordell or contact Doug at you wont be disappointed. The three I was using are pictured above. Good fishing, all sand bass were caught and released.

Cloudy day Saugeye on Tom Steed

Lake Tom Steed Oklahoma fishing report - the saugeye are biting!
I started the day out bass fishing at Lake Tom Steed but the bite was slow. Through out the week I had seen an angler or two pull a Saugeye from the lake so I decided to do some trolling. About an hour and half later I had several hybrids and three nice Saugeye with the largest at 24".

I decided to share the fun and give my fishing partner Keith (The Surf Rod) Aldridge a call. Keith met me at the ramp and we were off for more. After only 2 hours Keith had manged to pull several more hybrid and three more Saugeye as I guided him around the lake and would have had five total for him self if two of them had not spit the hook right at the boat.

What a great day to fish with the clouds and cooler weather.

Saugeye on a cloudy day

Friday was cloudy and cool considering the heat we have had had lately so I set out to do some fishing. The bass bite was slow and I had seen a few people through out the week catch a Saugeye or two so I decided to do some trolling. As soon as I had begun trolling I started slamming hybrids and several times I had two rods going at once.

After letting my 6th hybrid go the Saugeye began to strike, and just an hour later I had caught three Saugeye with the nicest one at 24". I decided I would share the experience with my new fishing partner Keith (The surf rod) Aldridge and gave him a call. No longer than 15 minutes into guiding Keith around the lake he set the hook on the first of Three that he caught in the short time frame he was in the boat not to mention the two other fish that spit the hook right at the boat.
