Mike Goodwin, valued friend and employee and brother of Gary Goodwin, passed away Saturday, December 7th.  He will be missed by all who knew him at Lake Purdy.  He was a legendary fisherman, and resourceful mechanic who kept our boats afloat and underway.  For nearly fifty years, Mike with his father and brothers caught and prepared fish from Lake Purdy for his friends and family.  He  was the master chef for his three daughters, Tina, Heather and Rachel, his brothers, Gary and Greg and his sister Paula.

Zach Parson caught his limit of crappie on Thursday 8/29 with Bobby Garland jigs

Alert: This Labor Day weekend kicks off the start of excellent fall fishing at Lake Purdy.  Large amounts of small shad schools have been spotted this week.  This late season spawn of baitfish has the crappie and spotted bass on the move and feeding up.  Zach Parsons, pictured above, caught his limit of crappie using Green Bobby Garland jigs which are about 2 inches long and a good match for the current crop of Lake Purdy shad.   Weather should be ideal this weekend as well; calm winds and possible cloud cover in the afternoons. 

Rylan and Luona caught these bass using a Carolina rigged Zoom lizard in the heat of the afternoon 8/20.
Bass Fishing Tip;  Fish with a plastic worm or lizard in 15 to 18 feet of water at the end of points or at the ends of trees fallen into deeper water.  Rylan, pictured above, used a Carolina Rigged lizard.  Others favor a shakey head jig or Texas rig. The main thing is finding the right depth which has been 15 to 18 feet in the middle of the day.

Look for bedding Shellcrackers in shallow water, 3 or 4 feet deep.  The beds will look like pie pans on gravelly bottoms often tucked up under a tree or a sloping bank.
