      thanks Shawn for the info
    2. Thanks everybody!
    3. Bill I was looking for creek bends in about 15 ft of water. Graph them and if the shad are around there will be good fish. Crank baits 5 or 6xd and c-rigs. I wouldn't ...more spend much time at each spot. Cover lots of water.

  2. Caught several over 3lbs today. On an a-rig and a bleeding shiner lipless rattle bait. Lake level is falling slowly.

    3 lb. 2 oz. Largemouth Bass with a A-rig

    1. Thanks Debbie! πŸ˜€
    2. Nice bass Shawn! πŸ˜πŸ‘
    3. Yes B. W. it has stabilized since the high water and is improving. The grass is making a comeback which is the life of the bass population. Just as long as it stays ...more stable and we don't get a flood it will be a great year for fishing.
    4. Been seeing a lot of good reports from old Sam. Lake has made a good comeback.
    5. Thanks guys, stay safe out there!

Fish for mostly largemouth but enjoy catching crappie in the summer time. Really anything that tugs on the other end of the line is fun to catch.

Fishing Favorites

  • Species Largemouth and crappie
  • Waterway Big Sam and Toledo Bend
  • Lure C-rig is my fav, then crankbaits, shakey head jigs, football jigs and senkos. I am learning to fish deep structure more. Still working on that first ten pounder. Personal best is an 8.3lb.
