Our Pyramid opener

Most of us weren't able to make it out to Pyramid last week but we did this weekend. Kellen and I started at South Nets beach. We had planned on hitting the east side of the lake but the road is closed at this time because it is a soupy mess. First cast of the morning didn't come until about 8am but produced a healthy cutt on a midnight cowboy bugger. I fished the same bugger stack all day on my shooting head and managed to catch 4 and lost a couple others. All but one of mine came on the midnight cowboy, the other on a chartreuse bugger with black hackle / tail. We were hooking up in various water depths at different sections of the column. Shot dog beach was the most productive producing 3 fish and lost 2. With temps dipping down to the forties overnight, the fishing is only going to get better. We were in our pontoon boats doing OK and guys out in boats seemed to be having decent luck as well deeper down. Mixed reviews from folks fishing from shore. The creel station had indicated that a boat over at Anderson reported 9 fish with 5 hours fished and one boat had reported 6 fish from the needles. If you've got a tube, that's going to be your best bet to cover water and find fish. Look for the beaches with deeper water access, they are producing more reliably .
