Jenks lake Report 8-18-2012
« on: August 20, 2012, 10:33:01 AM »
Met up with Andrew around 7:00 and by the time we left and filled our tubes at Jenks Lake we were on the water by 8:15.  We left the lake around noon. It was an interesting day on Jenks with about 10 other float tubers out here.  Fish were down deep and had to be fished slow.  Hot baits for me were jigs and trout worms.  C&R 10 trout up to about a pound and 1 small bass.  There was also 2 bald eagles up there hanging out and got to see one of them circle a few times before coming down and catching a trout.  One the way back got into a couple thunderstorms, but nothing heavy like the past few days.  There was reports that earlier in the week a man was hit by lightning and had to be airlifted out.



















And whatís a trip to Jenks without stopping at Seven Oaks for a bite to eat.  Let go of the diet for one day, and for everyone who has not been here yet.  Itís time to stop and have a burger up there!

Itís been some time since Iíve been to Jenks Lake.  I quit going as it gets too crowded along the shore lined with bait fisherman.  I can get quite warm in summer too.  But you have the right ideal fishing the lake with a float tube.  Sounds like a successful day fishing!  Thanks for the report.

That lil lake does look kinda cool,   Huck.  Some of the guys from my meetup.com fishing group go up there sometimes,  I might have to give it a shot too.  7 Oaks also has great memories for me,  fished up there several times with a friend who is now fishing the big pond in the sky.  Really cool place to visit,  and the burger looks great!
Once I arrive at Tom's Place...well,  you know...nothing else matters...

Huck, I've got two favorites...the one with the trees reflecting on the lake and the last one with the burger.  Thanks for the report. 

Now I want a burger and fries!
