I have never been to Lake Bridgeport before labor day weekend. I fished for several hours and caught a good amount of small blacks and spots. I researched online for tournaments and found that most tournaments seem to be won with pretty low weights, so I was wondering if there are many "overs" caught out of the lake and also how the smallies are since it looks like a clear/deeper lake?

welcome Thisguy3836 to the TFF. There are plenty of "overs" in Bridgeport. Fishing should be getting better and better as we head towards cooler weather and water. I have had my best days this time of year up in the river area just past the power lines with jigs for the bigger bite.

welcometo the TFF

Unfortunately, I've never fished the lake...

Better quality fall thru spring. Still over will be caught during warmer months but generally luck into them. Nights is good for the bigger fish. Not a lot of smallies. You see people saying they caught a bunch of little ones but I'd bet those are spots and can't tell the difference. I've only caught 3 this year. The whole lake has fished good this year and just about on any bait. Pretty much have to have at least one over to win out there. Think 14lbs won crosstimber during summer.

I won the Devon tournament last month, there were 51 teams,, there were 4 overs weighed in that day and me and my partner had 2 of them.. We had 2 overs, a nice spot and 2 under for 13.61 .. Our biggest fish was 3.91 ... It took 4.11 to win big bass.. And about the small mouth, in the colder months I can usually catch a few 3+ through out the year.. There are some really nice smallies, 5,6+lbers caught through out the year.. And u can run most all of the lake without worrying to much, just be careful around the island up by Runaway Bay area... Good luck,,,
