View Full Version : Commanche 12/16

Dad and I spent the day at Commanche in our never ending quest for the big one. It was not to be on this trip. Fished all day for two smallish fish.

Spent 3hours down by the dam and Hat Island for nothing, pulling grubs, rapalas and Apex from surface to 15 feet. Moved over to Horse Island and the North Shore and picked up two on a spinner with power bait at 10 feet.

Ya! It's Seems a little slow this year compaired to last year at this time. I would have expected it to be kick'n in by now. Thanks for the report even though it wasn't a great catching day for you guys. Im waiting to get out there for those big ones too, when it turn on this winter.

Never made it up to the bridge. I seldom do well for size up the river so I usually stick to the main lake.

I'm not sure why the lake is slow this year, they've been dumping fish in like mad, water temp is good. Fish just seem picky. When I was up there two weeks ago we had a lot of short strikes.

Hey Mike, I have been hearing the same from other's i know that have been up there!! What's going on? About three weeks ago, I was picking up limits, now i hear from other's a tough bite. If you can't get them, it must be tough!! I know you won't give up. Tell dad is said "Hi". Good luck next time at Camanche. Keep us up todate.

Let's get together again and try it. I've got some baby Lymans I'm thinking will be pretty killer there.
