I took a buddy up to Blue lakes (mud) for his maiden voyage in his new kick boat.  He really hasn't fished much for bass so I wanted to take him somewhere easy to catch a few fish.  Blue lakes was a bad choice.  The first thing we saw were hundreds of carp with just there lips above water.  Strange sight.  They looked like bullfrogs or something until we got right on top of them.  The fishing was brutal.  We each caught two.  He did catch a nice 3 lb 7 oz one though on a senko.  There was virtually no flip bite at all.  I had one fish about 10 inches on the beaver and that was it for flipping.  I talked to another fisherman up there that said he was skunked the day before.  Maybe just a bad weekend or the bass population is really hurting in there.  Should be an interesting tournament when we go there.

were the carp thrashing around a lot?  In oregon in a couple sloughs i use to fish, the bass bite seemed to slow when the carp became more active and aggressive.  especially during the carps spawn, they would really push the bass out of the cover when they would be thrashing around.  then again, i dont think they were spawning this late, but still the activity might have moved the bass. 

maybe its time for tarver to get over there and shoot them

They weren't thrashing.  No more jumping than normal.  I've just never seen humongous schools with just there lips out of water.

Theres nothing wrong with the population in that lake. Its tough right now for a reason and the carp dont have anything to do with it. There is something else going on in that pond that I havent seen there before, but its not a bad thing at all.  Trust me, the fishing in November will be just fine.

We hit Blue Lakes (clear) last Tues. I'm glad I had my ultralite cuz the bassin' sucked. Was able to smash green sunnies all day. I'd love a snorkel trip there, haven't seen water that clear since Indian Valley Res. 2 years ago. -stank

I had a follower early this year that was ridiculous. It was just lookin from about 4' beneath my bait. It was a mid-teener for sure, wouldve put my pb to shame. That lake is just tough, but does hold monsters. no telling really how big of a fish could be swimmin in there, I would not be surprised at all to see a high-teen, maybe even 20+ come outta there. There are times when theres a pretty good bite and 20+ lbs comes fairly easy, but more often than not, if you get one solid fish there in a trip youve done well. Heres one of those solid fish from a few weeks ago. Those 2 in my avatar are clear Blue lakes fish too. Mornings like that are when you want to be on that lake.
