  6. 4 lb. Largemouth Bass with a Lazyman Hook with a Creme Reel Scremer

    1. John Fitch 0
      Ya the wind was howling and really limited us on where we could go. Would have caught more but I wasn't using the right rod set up. Using a light crankbait rod ...more on a Lazyman Hook and Reel Scremer in the weeds, it's hard to get a good hook set and yank them out. I only brought 3 rods and lent my brother my Spinnerbait/Chatterbait rod.

  8. Alright next weekend is the weekend. Any last minute tips/ techniques/ lures I should use when we get there? My game plan so far is to do top water first thing in ...more the morning over the biggest grass bed I can find than head over to that horseshoe bay marina and surrounding area and fish those spawning flats and then hit the boat docks when the sun comes up high in the sky. This will be my first time on LBJ. Any advice will help. Game Plan is definitely open to change

      I haven't tried it on lbj yet, but that whopper Plopper is An awesome top water!! They'd probably kill it!

      We've had lots of luck fishing docks up near llano and the Colorado with chartreuse cranks as well as baby rage craws(summer craw and plum crazy) and the grass ...more beds. Worm fishing the drop offs and rocky shore lines
    3. John Fitch 0
      should I start at the grass beds or should I just go straight to the boat docks?
    4. John Morris 0
      Hey John, Topwaters, particularly hollowbody frogs work well around the docks in Horseshoe Bay early in the day. Once boat traffic starts chopping the surface, soft ...more plastics work well around the docks or you can flip a jig close to pilings, shade spots, etc. Hope the weather's favorable and have fun!
