Fishing buddy Ed D and I pulled my boat over to Lake Tawakoni today for a fishing excursion away from Cedar Creek. We were on the water by 8:30 and fished til 6 PM. After a very slow start we managed to catch a total of 129 fish: 103 white bass, 2 legal stripers, 2 short hybrids, 3 cats, 5 drum, 13 keeper sized yellow bass and a carp.
Details: Launched at the state park and started by checking out the long road bed protruding eastward from the power plant. Saw nothing worthwhile there, so went to Finger Point. Saw a lot of bait fish but couldn't catch a fish there after trying all 3 fingers. After about an hour and 20 minutes we gave up and headed toward Holiday Humps. Stopped at the point out from the big block building and found fish there. Fished it about an hour and left with 36 fish. Caught them with #4 Mepps in 17 to 19 fow. We went on to Holiday and fished it for a couple of hours catching about a dozen scattered around the humps never really finding a sizable concentration of fish. Left there about 2pm and headed for the structures just north of the dam on the east side. There we caught most of our fish parked in 11 fow and casting #2 and #3 Mepps out into 18 fow and reeling up the slope. The 2 stripers were caught there and went 21 and 27 inches and both were caught on #2 Mepps.
