Fishing and the weather is hot at Lewisville right now. All those big fat Black Crappie that we thought were gone are back. Lots of dinks too.
Friday I fished with Rudy and had a fun day. Caught a lot of fish of all kinds. Kept 19 fat ladies.
Saturday Guy and I fished, a bit windier and fishing was slower but I believe we just fished the wrong areas. Still had several big fish. Filleted 8 for dinner, released the rest.
Sunday fished with Rick and had the best day in a long time. Didn't count the totals but kept 23 of the big ones. (1.5 to 2#) For real, not lying.
Best bet for big fish now is use your graph to find submerged standing timber in 20'-30' water and fish vertically with small baits with 1/8 or 1/4 oz jigs. Shad colors with glitter worked best. Bite is extremely light.
Once again I can't say enough about the Xi5 trolling motor. With the boat essentially anchored over the trees we were able to see and feel bites we would miss if the boat was moving around.
Sandbass and Hybrids were schooling all over the place and most boats we saw were catching a lot.
Got hot around noon and came in.
