Very nice Jimmy! I will be scouting out the creek soon as well. Probably in 2 weeks with the amount of rain that is headed our way.

Is that Rowlett Creek near Miller Road? I've never fished there before, but I do go to Rowlett Creek Preserve and trail-bike ride a lot. Regarding fishing, I stay mostly in the Richardson/Plano areas, but I might venture out.

PM the specific location if it's a secret, please.

Hey Fisherman Joe, I fished this morning with KFJ but no luck. I think KFJ caught about 20-30 crappies and saw a couple of guys had nice stringers of fish. I talked to 3 fishermen, they all caught about 50 to 60 under size. They bite early in the morning. I came around 10am and it was slow. I still have a lot to learn from you guys for crappie fishing. Tight lines everyone

tried last night. got one baby bluegill. no one was out there except me... that's good and bad at night time. I think the problem was not knowing the area and it was too dark to see good fishing spots, water depth, etc. but was good to be out and cast my line out. maybe someday, i mite join the crew in day time. thanks alot for the tips guys.

i had lights, just not bright enough to see the water depth from the distance. kinda felt creepy out there with wind knocking the fishing props hanging in the trees making some noise from the dark. I say, shoot, time to go home alive.

hahaha, impressive. i wonder how would one use those submerged lights from bank.

I can only think of one place you can use that from bank and kill them during spring time. Haven't gone there for past few years though. Jimmy, if you are interested i'll tell you where.

I don't expect folks to share good fishing spots. I know how it is. But this looks pretty public. Where are these people fishing? Just anxious to get some fish! Thanks

There are access points to Rowlett creek off Miller road, 66 and bike park off Centerville. I don't know where they're fishing but if you start at one of these spots and start walking you'll eventually find fish, or people, which means fish.

Gonna have to use minnows today. High pressure blue bird day. As for location they're everywhere throughout the creek. Wherever you can find 6'+

Lol^ apparently I need to learn that tune as well.. went this morning and got skunked . Talked to a few other people that weren't doing too hot also. Hopefully this weather stays consistent so the bite picks up again. bang

Here's some tip for the people is not doing to well.


Ultra lite rod 4lb line (you need this to feel the bite or you miss all the time or can't feel the bite at all)

1/16oz head.
any color jig my favorite is this one



Cause I LOVE GOOOOOLD!



Cast into a spot where you think they are in and reel it pause reel it pause. No bite move on to somewhere else.

Was able to make it out late this morning and kayak around (yea yea, not banking it) and couldn't even catch a dink. This is almost exactly what I was using.

I recommend investing in some scents, especially shad oil type scents. I primarily use the Bonehead stuff. Also use your fingers on your reeling hand to feel the line because bite is really light. What's been working for me is more of the silver and blue colors.

With air pressure being so high these few. Days. You would basically have to live line minnows or 1 small splitshot. Other then that they are basically lethargic unroll. We get some low pressure.

http://www.usairnet.com/weather/conditions/?station=KTKI <--- BOOKMARK THIS!

Check the barometric air pressure before heading out.

~29.75 - ~30.25 is your "safe zone" between this range, jigs should produce. Anything under or over, MOST of the time, you're going to have to use minnows. If the pressure is rising, the bite will be slower. If it is falling, the bite is generally better. Falling/Rising too fast will shut off the bite. Use minnows or go home. If the pressure is at 29.60 or lower, or 30.40 or higher, I WILL NOT go out, unless I'm dreadfully bored. I'm not wasting my time with just a few fish.. I know, I'm spoiled... I'll clean the house, or tie some flies or jigs or something. Any time after a major cold front, it generally takes 3-4 days for everything to settle back down. Tomorrow should start picking back up.

If you're throwing over 4-6lb line, you're wasting your time and missing fish. If you're throwing heavier than 1/16th-1/32nd, you're not going to do very well. If you're fishing jig and bobber, you want to use the SMALLEST peg float that will stay afloat with your jig. 90% of the time, I'm throwing 4lb hi vis crappie max, with a 2-3' 4lb flouro leader. On the days they're biting extremely light, I will switch to the 2nd rod I carry, with 10lb braid, and a 4lb flouro leader. Color doesn't seem to matter too much right now. Deeper pockets, 1/16th. Shallower pockets, 1/32nd. Sensitive 7' light or medium action rod and a light spinning reel.

To everyone having a hard time, it's not the air pressure. Fish will bite just fine even if the air pressure is high or falling too fast or doing whatever is mentioned above. LOCATION is EVERYTHING when it comes to catching crappie. This is why at some creeks you find people lining the banks in certain areas catching fish. That is because they have located the crappie. Case and point was yesterday when I found an area at a creek that was about the side of a couch that was LOADED with good fish. Once I got out of that area, I just reeled in because I knew I wouldn't get bite. I couldn't tell you how many times I have went to a creek and did very well when everyone else was staying home because of the pressure.

I agree. Air pressure makes no difference to me. Location is, most of the time, everything.

Sorry for the late posting...my son and I met up with my buddy KFJ on Saturday morning. Temps started out in the upper 50s/lower 60's and proceed to rise to about 72. We were into them pretty good from 7 to about 1. The wind begin to pick up and change to the north and then we shut it down. All total caught over 70 between my son and I with KFJ catching alot as well(don't know exactly how many). We ended up with this stringer of keepers. The vast majority were undersized in the 8.5 - 9.5 range. Hopefully they will grow in time for the spring spawn. One thing I noticed when cleaning that several of them already had eggs...that surprised me they had eggs already. Tight lines and be safe everyone!

Yes, yes. I know you caught your limit yesterday. That's why I said "MOST" of the time. Others may have different experiences, but over the years, from MY personal experience, as well as many others, that seems to be the general rule. Again, just sharing from MY own personal experience.

I was simply sharing MY personal experiences, as well as many others. Simply put guys, go fishing when you can. Don't stay in because someone said the pressure is not right.

Thanks for the props brother! cheers How did you do out there yesterday KFJ? I managed around 20ish with probably 8-10 possibly being keepers, between 5:00pm-6:30pm. I've got a full schedule today, so the fish are safe from me today. I'll be back at it tomorrow, and probably all day Saturday. BTW, I actually found them sitting shallower than they have been. I caught most of mine yesterday, in about 5'-6', fishing with 1/32 hand tied white/chartreuse about 4.5' under a float.

That just goes to show that every body of water is different. In another creek yesterday, they were hugging the bottom in the deepest holes, up to 20' deep. Nothing to be found shallow.

its really interesting how often you jump on here to correct Cody. Seems like you correct everything he says, you rarely offer many reports, you rarely give locations etc, but you just try to disprove Cody and Carey. I heard you're guiding now? You'd sell more trips if you took away the negativity. I'm sorry buddy, but the air pressure is usually a pretty safe bet when fish are in the creeks.

I'm just simply wanting people to keep an open mind because the fish that I catch don't seem to be bothered by the pressure. I guess that makes me negative lol. Out of respect for jimmy.. I won't say anything else on here. Tight lines.

Went out to Rowlett today and met up with Kung Foo Jimmy. He set me up with a slip bobber, jig color, and depth. What a great day. Caught a few small ones and a keeper. Jimmy had a couple of keepers that he gave to me for dinner. Lets enjoy each others company, info, fishing space, and respect. Thank you Jimmy for all your info and letting me catch some fish without all the bull [censored]. Your a very generous man who makes this forum a better place to get fishing!!!!!!

I just started this year without knowing anything about fishing. Fishing is suppose to be relaxing and making friends, but in this hobby there isn't really any of that. I was asking people what lure they were using and how they were fishing for the white bass, and people did't even bother to answer. I am glad I met KungFuJimmy at the beginning of the white bass season at rowlett creek. I was fishing and saw KungFuJimmy(we don't know each other yet) waving at me telling me to come over to his spot and said, "hey!, the fish is over here and its biting really good right now." He was also kind enough to give me some of his lures to use after I have been skunking for 2 days and only meeting him for couple minutes I caught my first white bass and slayed them laugh. Anyways most of people in this hobby are rude and shady... so fake. There are people on here who take advantages of KungFuJimmy and you know who you are grin

Most people I've run into on the creek in person have been great. Lots of people don't want to help someone who hasn't put in any effort, but if you're out there trying, they will.

I'm planning on fishing it this afternoon. I'll be in the kayak this time. I walked the creek the other day looking for interesting places that are hard to cast into on foot. I prefer the places off the beaten path, even if they aren't the hottest spots. If you see me, I'll tell you what I see on my graph!

Dinkfest this year means epic fishing next year. Lavon sandies were the same way two years ago. This year the fishing was epic with good size fish. It all comes in cycles.

to some extent, the creeks are never going to pump out keeper crappie after keeper crappie. Bigger fish will show as it gets colder, but You'll always get more dinks than keepers. The good news is you can and will catch limits.

Someone drove into a pond? LOL

I saw 18 cars parked at the spot today. I was like, "nope!"

I took a.walk south of Miller today. I saw no less than 10 camp fire sites, with crazy amounts of trash to go with them. Really pathetic.

The trail on the west bank is really worn in and wide. Easiest travel up and down the creek I've ever seen. It's going to be ridiculous during the sand bass run.

It was nice to meet you and get some fishing in yesterday. KFJ is one of the nicest and smartest fisherman you will meet. He's always willing to share knowledge and help out new fisherman. Since we live so close together can't wait to get more trips in the near future. In a couple of months it's really gonna be crazy my friend! Tight lines and be safe everyone!

Hi guys, Iíd been a member here in the forum for many years although I rarely read. But I started reading more for the past few months. Itís my first time ever to post here. I really enjoyed reading your posts and from others as well. Lots of great tips and good reading that would help a lot of people to enjoy fishing. Thanks to you all for the great and helpful tips, and I love reading your posts.

I only fished Rowlett creek quite a few times in the past several years. And I went there last weekend to try for crappies but to no luck. But I was lucky enough to catch some magnum mama sandies. Surprisingly, all have eggs already but only one has fully developed eggs.

Iím taking a couple of friends from our church to Rowlett Creek this Saturday morning and Iím hoping to help them catch some crappies and have some fun and make great memories for the last day of the year. Although I donít know where the fish are at this time and what they are biting for. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would love to meet new friends at the creek and chat with some of you if you will fish this coming Saturday morning.

You all have fun fishing!

All the females will have eggs in some stage of development. We are getting fairly close to the spawn.

Where abouts did you find those sandies if you don't mind? North or south of Miller? PM me if you want.

I walked south of Miller last week. I thought the same thing...the amount of trash, [censored], junk from the bridge to the bend down there is pathetic!

Last week I saw this styrofoam plate right next to the water with a full meal on it. Rice and potatoes, and some other stuff. Somebody served themselves a home cooked meal at the creek, and left it there. So weird.

I don't get it. If you are going to build a campfire, why not burn the trash you brought in?

I seem to not be holding my mouth just right or something. Several dinks. Went out for a couple of hours today, by 66. Nothing to brag about. Met a gentlemen that is from around here, should've asked him his name. If you're reading this, you and I spoke south of the bridge for a bit. You said you were going to call it a day and try again tomorrow. Anyway, nice chatting w/ya, good luck tomorrow!

gamble will make you lose anything[if won you will come back,if lose you want money back]different with fishing[if they bite,you will come back,if no bite you still come to scouting]because that feeling money can't buy it!!!ha...ha.. hammer

Who's going to be at the creek early in the morning? I was kind of thinking like 9point...while most are sleeping off tonight's festivities, I'm going to be relaxing at the creek w/plenty of room to spare!! My party days are long gone, but I did enough for me plus several others during the prime days. Happy New Year to each of you and I hope 2017 is a prosperous one for each! thumb

Anyone know what they are going to do with the area surrounding the Miller bridge? Are they going to make it into a park? They just move dirt around for no apparent reason. Sure would like to see some grass there or something.

today was skunkky day for 2 hours of fishing! well, most of the time for me at least. would have loved to see my bobber submerged a few times but didn't happen. not a single nibble. i picked the wrong day again apparently. Did chat with one dude, he said that the action has been consistent, but today was very slow. what's new smile I might have to hook up with my sensei again someday to regain my touch and confidence. or kfj can hook me up someday. smile

Lol... Been fishing with you for years but didn't know you are 9point. Good job this morning on catching those sandies. You were the only one tearing them up. I only caught about 10 crappies but only one keeper size.

Fished RC this morning and crazy enough there are a other people who braved the winter chill. Managed to land a handful of small crappie and missed a lot of thump, can't even feel my fingers. Met Jimmy along the way and I too managed to land a sand bass. I totally did not expect that but the only keeper of the day, a thick 12 incher. If you dare brave the winter chill tomorrow wear a lot layers, the bottled water I brought with me was chilled. Be safe everyone and tight lines!

man.. that's a lot of dedication there. People don't seem to understand how much effort and time they put into water to get to the level where they catch fish consistently like Jimmy. People see post and there's some magic. But reality is, all the skilled people here i fish with put tremendous amount of effort and persistency. Look at me, i fish for 2 hours and give up.. smile

Yeah Coffebreak it was tough fishing today! We were still able to get some scouting in and share info with you all. It was great to finally put faces with names. Next week looks promising if the weather holds up as forecasted. Be safe and tight lines everyone!

I fished for about 30 min this evening at Miller bridge. The water cleared up quite a bit. I didn't find any fish there, but I heard there was a few fish caught south of there.

I wish they'd stop tearing up the place with all that heavy equipment. It's a muddy disaster. All they've done for the past year is move piles of dirt and mud around for no apparent reason.
