Went out today for a little relaxing with dad. The fish cooperated for a little but then got lock jaw. We caught 15 or so Stripers and kept 8. The biggest one was about 3 pounds. Can't wait for the water to start cooling down so the Big Boys will come out to play. It was a beautiful day out here on the Desert Lake.

Living here in Vegas I think we take the great fishing for granted. I don't fish for Largemouth much. This year has been killer for the Smallmouth. I have caught a few over 5 pounds out near Temple Bar. The Larger Striper's are out there now. Just need to find the deep water they are in. Once the water cools to the 60's they move up. I have the big baits ready for them this year.

There are several way. Typically I like to catch live Shad and use them. It always seems to work the best. I will also troll deep diving crank baits, Sassy Shads, or throw top water lures when they are boiling. You can also chum with and use frozen Anchovies. If anyone is coming over just let me know and I will let you know whats working best at that time.

COOL and thanks alot for the info , catching shad ,throw net or find them bait a cage . best way to catch shad . meter em shallow water,? .thanks for info . b
We can use up to a 4" cast net. The shad are starting to move into the shallows. The best area to catch them is up by Vegas Wash. Then we head out and start looking for schools. If you stop on a school and dont get bit right away move on. Just have to find the right school. When you do it gets pretty crazy. Soon we will start Trolling the Larger shad for the Big Boys. Then it gets really fun.
