I'm still pretty green as far as finding and catching sandbass but figured I'd give a report anyways, bad as it may be
. I fished from about 2:00ish to 5:00ish. I looked from Saline Bay to Flat Creek on all the humps, ridges and roadbeds and never found a school of sandies (keep in mind I'm new at targeting sandies and brand new at using side imaging). I did find a MASSIVE school of shad at the 155 sunken road/bridge. They filled up the entire screen on the graph and were boiling on the surface all around me. It looked like there was a few fish (maybe cats?) under them but I could never get a bite no matter what I threw. Also tried for crappie a little with no luck either but I was pretty frustrated by that time so they didn't get my full attention so to speak. Anyways, not a good report unfortunately. Hopefully I can post some good ones soon.
Now for the question. Me and my brother are planning on fishing all day Saturday, mainly targeting sandbass. Would ya'll suggest going to another lake like Richland Chambers, Cedar Creek, Twak, or staying on Palestine (15 min from home) and trying again? I've got a big boat now so I don't have to worry about lake conditions anymore so that's not an issue. We've never been able to really get into them before so any suggested lakes to help us do that would be very much appreciated.
I don't post much in the off season cause chasing horns and pigs takes priority but I am going to try to post more reports this year good or bad at least till deer season. And with the new boat I don't have to tuck my tail and run with >10mph winds
I may even try to do a little Fall/Winter fishing if the deer cooperate early. Thanks guys! looks like the weather is going to hold out this weekend
ya'll be careful out there and good luck!
