as far as bass boats they dont do so well in rougher water so you are limited to lakes that dont get to windy.
Arizona, actually. CharlieDontSurf should know of it. It's probably one of the top five bass fishing hotspots in the Southwest. The lake has a slot program, meaning bass of a certain size have to be thrown back but anything longer or shorter than the slot length can be kept (I just catch and release so I don't really care anyhow) so there is a healthy population of quality fish. There are some gargantuan catfish in there too, there is no doubt in my mind that 100+ pound flatheads live by the dam.
I didn't take any pictures today but I fished from dawn til it got too hot (around 1PM) and caught 9-10 largemouth bass. Air temps started at about 41 degrees when we got on the water and 78 when we put the boat on the trailer, waters temps ranged from 61-68 and clarity varied from clear to slight stain. We caught 4 slots, 2 overs and 2 unders by pitching creature imitations and Senkos close to tree stumps in 4-10 feet of water. I don't think the spawn has started yet as I didn't see any fish on beds so no lizard-on-the-bed action
Pretty good day overall, I plan on making a few more day trips before it gets hot enough that night fishing is the only option.
