Havasu 3/2-3/4

Tim and I hit Havasu Saturday for the afternoon bite and found the smallies a bit more playful and the wind not as bad as last weekend.  More beds, warmer water temps and less wind…can’t ask for much more than that.  Tim had a nice afternoon landing 3-4 smallies.

DW joined us the next day with even calmer water and more sun.

We caught about 20 fish between us all with bed fish flies.  Tim left that afternoon and DW and I hit one of the marinas trying new water.  Good call!

 

DW even caught a bluegill stripping a simi

Getting a couple lmb’s at the end of the trip was a real bonus this early in a cold season.  We saw plenty of big lmb’s cruising but not that many locked on a bed.  DW and I landed between 35-40 bass that day, all between 2-3.5 lbs….unreal!

Phil Click joined us and fished a different area in his boat.  Here’s some pics from him.

All in all another great early season trip to Havasu.  May be the last time I get to hit it his season until maybe April for the redear.  Plenty of water up here this year and lots of new opportunities.  Can’t be everywhere.  Nice to actually have choices this coming season.  Trout, lmb’s, smallies, stripers…eenie meenie….
