Tag Archives: Asian carp

July 23rd 2014 Middle Decatur Bend

Had a day off in the middle of the week and decided to head back to one of my most intriguing spots.  I choose this spot one for the bass fishing and multiple other species and two because I wanted to do some scouting for deer season!
This was the first time I have fished this lake with a depth finder and to my surprise it actually gets pretty deep, in spots up to 18ft deep.  Still see a lot of Asian carp and gar but today I actually didn’t find the bass like I had on my previous trips.  But I did end up catching an 8lb channel cat on a spinner bait.  Then finally one of my dreams came true and an Asian carp literally jumped into my boat! Pictures below.
Also found the necessary information I need for deer season! So even though I couldn’t find the bass or was still a fun day on the water!

Overall Ranking: 4 Star

This like is kind of a little gem, good fishing with multiple species.  The view is great and its only an hour drive from the metro area.  Overall fairly shallow and there are a lot of undesirable species as well.
