Default stuck at the weir

Went fishing at big lake monday. managed to keep 5 reds. exciting part of the day was watching a boat get stuck sideways in the weir. messed his big champion up. I felt bad for the guy, but what can you do.

he was coming out of the marsh. I dont know what he was trying to do. he tried to ease up to it to check the depth i guess. well the current was to strong and it turned his boat sideways. you could hear the fiberclass crash against that concrete. then when he finally got through he came in backwards through the weir. scratched his motor all up.

To me, it is not worth fishing close to the weir (FINE) or even going thru them unless I had a small boat!! Amazing what some will do to catch a black or red drum!

BTW, my 2 uncles and me hit the lake yesterday morning......21 specs (not a one needed to be measured) and 13 reds (plus we released 2 over 27").......Best part was you did not even have to hit the weirs! Majority of the fish were caught on pearl\chart Jerk Jr (thanks Mikedtiger).

Yesterday the North part of the lake was average but as you ran a little further South the water got very clear. I would assume the fresh water has a lot to do with making it muddy plus the wind. However, Big Lake really does clear-up fast once the winds die down.

we fished the east bank monday. the week before we limited out in 2 hrs there. monday we didnt even get a bite. there was a north wind blowing to, which made it tough to fish. You could see the reds swimming after shad at one of the weirs but we couldnt hardly get them to bite. Guess we should of had live bait.

I would assume REDS, not trout.....
If the weather is nice this weekend, the lake will be PACKED.....

Commissary point holds trout, and outside of lamberts weirs there is a reef that holds some fish from time to time, just a matter of getting out there and figuring them little creatures out. Hit W up he does a lot better job of it than I do.

I have seen 2 boats in the wier sideways and 3 people fall out and get sucked through them(and not through the big hole). How no one died I have no idea.
