New Lake Record recently caught by Austin Vowell
weighing 14 lbs 5 ozs. Congratulations Austin, thats a
fish of a lifetime!
Bass bite continues to be good with several 4 and 5
pounders being taken this week. Bass have moved back into the
grass and pads. Worms and top water lures late in the day or
early in morning is what continues to work this week, with top
water producing the most results. The big fish are there to be
caught, but it takes a lot of patience to be successful.
Try catfish in 8 - 10 ft of water around brush
piles or along creek channels. Liver, minnows or worms are best
bets for baits. Several nice 2 to 3 lb fish have
been reported using liver fishing on the bottom off the road but
action is still a little slow.
Bream should be targeted at depths of 8 - 10
ft around creek channels and structure. Tightlining on the
bottom with red worms or crickets are the
best methods this time of year. There are no current
reports at this time.
The crappie bite is still on with some nice fish being taken
along the grass line. Tipping with a small minnow could help
increase your chances. The best luck has been with blue/white,
black/green, and solid green jigs this past week.
