Loc: Universal City Tx.
Made my annual trip to the Marble Falls area and the bite was good. I fished both Lake Marble Falls and the Johnson Park areas. Fished from 7:30am till 11:30am. Caught a bunch of Redbreast in the 8 to 9" range,Redear in the 8 to 9" range,Bluegill in the 7 to 8" range,and rounding out the catch were a couple of fat Bass in the 2 to 3 pound range. After a morning in Marble Falls I headed back south to Johnson City where I quickly fished the Perdernales River and caught a few nice Bluegill in the 7"range. All fish were healthy,fat,and full of fight.Fish were caught on worms with a bottom technique.Fish were released to fight again. Water bodies were in good condition with good current. Fish on Lake Marble Falls were staged by structure such as docks and over hanging trees. Johnson Park fish were hanging close to brush piles by the bank. Finished the trip with a GREAT MEAL at the Hill Country Cutting Board Restaurant located in beautiful Johnson City. Fishing Texas. It just don't get any better. fish

Nice post Banker. I would like it if you would talk a little bit about your bottom technique. Especially hooks and sinkers. I am not trying to steal your secrets, but I am still struggling to use bottom techniques due to statying hung up all the time. Part of the problem is when I am in Louisiana, the rivers and bayous I fish have so much brush on bottom, it is hard to not stay hung up. I have been experimenting with different rigs and catching a few, but still having problems.
Again, I enjoy your posts and pictures. I would really like to make a trip and fish with you some day.

later...don

Thanks "etexbasser"for the reply. cheers Fishing off of the bottom can be very hard at times especially like you stated the bottom has a lot of trash or hang ups. When the bottoms have a lot of hang ups I switch to a float or a slip float and fish the bait close to the bottom as possible. Depending on the time of year a lot of Sunfish will be suspended and the float technique works good under those conditions. Bottom fishing is GREAT when there are not that many snags around. I have also learned where a lot of snags are at just by fishing an area a lot. Of course an area can change with strong current and flooding. eeks


Side note: I use a size six cricket hook, with a size five shot. The shot is placed approx 5 to 7 inches above the hook. (Weight size and location can depend on the type of water body,current,and bottom.) A lot of friends who I fish with use a drop shot and usually out fish me every time. I also go through a lot of hooks and shots over the year. Getting snagged is just part of catching BIG fish. Big fish love hanging around brush piles and structure. thumb

Side Note: One more very important item. You may want to speed up your retrieve. Bottoms with a of of hang ups can be a huge problem if you leave your bait still on the bottom. The current will usually rap your bait or shot around a log,rock,or some other hang up. taz

Thanks Curtis for the reply. Fish by structure on the main lake. Brush piles and tree overhangs in the park. thumb
