    EKY Hunter ( Parker )and I are planning on going to Dewey on Thursday or Friday or both if the fishing is good. We are planning on targeting Mr. Flattie. We are going to be fishing whatever structure we float across. Hopefully we will have a good report to bring back with photos of some good flat heads. We are planing on fishing live gills cut skippies and shad. We are going to be floating gills just above stumps and standing timber. Fishing deep and shallow around steep drop of near crappie attractions.. Any ideas on fishing a lake in the fall will be appreciated..

    Guess what everyone you can almost walk on water at Dewey right now because the weeds are so thick. Has anybody noticed if the water has started to turn yet .

    If they are floating to the top I'd say it is starting to turn. T he temp and weather is about right for it. I'll have to go check it out. If it is the fishing is getting ready to IMPROVE:wink::smile2::tounge_out:

    Yea that is what I usually do since I dont have a boat. Ken has one but I havent been on it yet. I have banked fish Dewey for as long as I can remember and always done good except for this year because of the weeds. Dewey has always been a good place to bank fish.

    We are planning an expedition on the lake for 10-30-08. I put a hydro-foil on my boat motor and want to see how much it helps. Well ya shouldn't go out on the lake in a boat without fishing poles and bait. That's my opinion :wink: I have always wanted to get on Dewey when there are no jet-skis or pleasure boaters out on it. I think this is the ideal time to do it. the cats should be feeding up for winter and I think we are in for one heck of a trip.:wink::smile2: Later this year once they pull the lake down to winter pool. I figure on fishing from the bank as a person will be able to access areas that ya can't get to when it's at summer pool. I will have the camera loaded for documentation of these trips when I go.

    Parker and I are off to Dewey again today. If we keep looking we will surely find fish in this hole of water.
