    Hi Jake

    Have been thinking about you lately and wondering how you are doing. Pleased to see your article in Lakeside Living.

    Don’t know how your fishing is going but mine has diminished a lot. I fish mostly the lower portion of the lake, Reed Creek, Davidson Creek, Isle of Pines bay, etc. Also get to the southern hot hole once in a while.

    While I have not been fishing as much as I once did (age is getting to me) I have found that the fishing in the lower lake has diminished a lot over the 13 years I have been fishing the lake. Places where I could always count on catching one or two, I catch nothing. The hot hole has been anything but hot over the last year or two.

    I usually start fishing by casting. When I get tired, I troll (1.3 mph) with scatter raps and jointed lures. I sometimes do just OK, but nothing like it once was.

    If I could consistently catch fish, I would travel above the 150 bridge but it’s a long way to go to have a poor day of fishing.

    How are you doing? Do you notice a difference or is it just me. It seems I may have to fish deeper and with live bait. I don’t like to fish deep and live bait are difficult to get.

    I do miss the old fishing club…..learned a lot there. And I am sorry to see Gus leave the scene. He was a good guy willing to share his experience. I did go out with him a number of times. Rarely caught a lot of fish, but always had a good time. He was a character.

    Best wishes Paul Mack
    PS I have all of your books and each is signed by the author.
