Fort Gibson Lake

Went to Fort Gibson Lake unloaded the boat and set out to catch some big, catfish bait size shad. Got the Lowrance Active Target 2 fired up and pointed me in the right direction to load up the tank. Bait tank full of big shad made my way to picked up my clients Bill and Hunter at Paradise cove marina. Loaded them up and set out to get on some catfish I had marked while catching bait. I didn’t get all the rods out and we already had two in the box. We put a few more in the box at stop number one and then off to another spot when that bite died down. Second spot was a drift and we put a few more in the box after arguing with Mother Nature and her unwillingness to let the wind blow from one single direction! 😂. On to spot three, which is my favorite spot on this part of the lake. Didn’t even get the third rod out before Bill had another one hooked up. We sat there for a while on a steady bite until the box was full and Hunter was frozen. We went back to the marina and I cleaned them up a couple gallons of nice blue cat fillets. After I dropped the clients off I was making my way back to the dock to load my boat and figured I would “Active Target” some spoonbill. They were a little scattered where I was at but did put one in the boat. My shoulders can’t handle too much of that. That’s a lot of work!! 😂. I have available dates and am on fish on three different lakes. May make a trip to Oolagah to get on some more hybrids as well as long as Zach Petitjean left any in the lake for me! 😂
