Just fished Lake Havasu/Gourge area this past thursday, friday, and local tournament Sunday, slightly different take on the fishing from what I seen. I have been fishing this area for the past few months pretty heavy, and my take was this past weekend the bite was TOUGH! Weeks ago, soft plastics were the ticket, texas rigged, wacky rigged senko, drop shot, all produced well. This past thursday and friday tried exclucivly using spinners cranks and jigs, tried to increase size and numbers of fish caught, couldn't buy a bite. Tried areas that weeks ago yeilded good action, but no takers on speedier rigs. Thought it was strange, but heavy wind and boat show (literally hundereds of giant boats) may have soiled action is my guess.
Sunday came and the tourney and went back to what I knew was working last, worms wacky rigged drop shot and texas rig. First part of morning before wind hit caught 9lbs in hour (4 1/2 lber, 3 lb and 1 1/2 lber). Continued working the worms, worked great, till the heavy wind hit and the bite was over. We won the tournement with just over 13 lbs, another guy got 12 lbs, but from what others said and brought to scales, tough conditions tough bite.
Just my take on things, and not trying to discourage people from coming out to Havasu for what has been overall GREAT FISHING, but I would recommend watching the weather and trying to hit it on days with less that 30 mph winds, you'll have much better time. When the temps rise just a little, I suspect the power fishing techniques will really be fantastic, but it just hasen't got there yet, at least for me and my experiences.
Thanks and remember you cant catch fish without your line in the water!
