Me and a couple of my buddies decided to camp at Tawakoni this last weekend. We banked it for the most part due to the hurricane that blew through there Saturday. We fished a point facing south with the winds at our back. Bait was in the water from sunrise till about 8pm. Baits were shad, chicken breast, and a little bit of carp we caught later on in the day. Shad was easy to come by at the boat ramp.

The morning started off pretty quick with a 10, and a few smaller keepers, and a tough fighting striper! By 10am the bite died....and things got real slow...

A few hours later, with no fish showing interest, my fishing partners took a liitle snooze. Fortunately for me thats when the big fish swam through. After a good fight and some hootin' and hollerin'...we had a 44 on the bank! A new pb for me.

After that fish, it got slow again. We managed about 10 fish for the day.

Nice catch, and great report thumb congrats on the pb, some great fighting drag peeling from the bank that few boaters could ever experience for sure. clap
Why do I go fishing? To catch a box of fish and/or some quality time under the sun. Thank Heaven I never fail fishing in Texas, catching box fish or plenty of sunburn.
