Got out early while it was still foggy. The bite was really slow but I still manages to get 10. I think it was slow because of the upcoming cold front. I threw plastic worms of various color, craws and crank baits. I caught most of the fish on a 1/2oz jig with a brown craw in around 20'.

Thanks for the report!

I am hoping to get down there over the holidays, I have heard the bite has gone a little deeper, I need to get out there and look around.

I live and guide on Medina. The bite right now is very slow. Try soft plastics from 10-30 fow. The bite is very hard to detect so use a good sensitive line and rod. As for colors I am liking dark like plum, green pumpkin or even black. Texas rig plastic dads and brushhogs are working. Work your baits super slow almost to the point you are falling asleep. If you think you are going slow, then slow down even more.

If anyone is interested in booking a trip you can call or text me at 210-326-3381. My name is Dan Carmony.

Was out at Medina yesterday New Year's Eve and may have been the best day I have had on the water anywhere in a long time, biggest fish was a 10 pound 2 oz fish and she was loaded with eggs, when I caught the fish there was with her in the 4 to 5 pound range could not tell if it had eggs or a male fish. She was released healthy. Primarily fish were is 10 to 15 foot but it had to be close to deep water , 30 foot plus, used creature baits Texas rigged primarily, if you got the patience use 3/8oz weight or less, the weight made a bigger difference than anything else, I guess because of the fall. Also caught solid fish on a umbrella rig as well.

Nice fish. My biggest out there this year was right at 3.5lbs.

With the weather the way it is right now it's going to be slow for a bit I think. I'm honestly looking forward to getting back out there in February and March. They were basically jumping in the boat those months last year.

Numbers are going down and quality is going up, what really benefited this lake for bass fishing was a few things, the first thing is when the lake went down to a trickle of a river and small lake, all of the stripers died out as well as most of the white bass, I know I have not caught one of those since the lake has filled, what did survive was a good population of black bass and I am sure catfish and there forage, when the lake filled and given some time to adjust with perch and shad spawns then they stocked it with the 200,000 Floridas and the survival rate was tremendous because all though there were predators but no where near the amount there is say in canyon when they releaseate bass there. These fish now average between 12 to 15 inches and healthy, what is really a huge plus for the lake is it had a great spawn last year as well, I have seen hundreds of 2 to 6 inch bass then. All of this said, it really depends on how the water in the lake is taken care of and water be respected and not wasted. There is still some giant fish in there and I would not be surprised if a 13 plus is not caught out of here in the next few years. Will be out there bright and early Sunday morning looking for 5.

"We had 3 die hard boats show up this morning! 17 was the take off temp. Don holding took 1st and big bass with 5.15 for 3 fish and big bass of 3.5 pounds"

I congratulate those 3 diehard teams for venturing out in less than favorable conditions and to Don for figuring how how to catch them with the hand they were dealt to take the win clap

I was able to get out for about 2 hours last night (24 Jan) with my daughter. We ended up with one in the boat and had another nice one hooked. We also had another 6 nice bites. We would probably landed a few more but I'm trying to teach her how to plastic worm fish. She is picking it up quick and will be dragging them in the boat in a few months.


People often ask me why I like going to the lake so much. I think this picture I took last night pretty much sums it up.

Thank you Jobie99 and all the members of the medina lake bass club for the nice welcome, I look forward on getting to know everyone as time goes on. There is a ton of active fish between 13 to 13 and 3/4 inches, the hard deal was finding legal fish for the weigh in, I never went more than 5 minutes without a bite or catching a fish, most big fish are just suspended right now in open deep water close to shallow structure, most of my fish came off a Texas rig baby brush hog and a 1/2 oz wobble head with a beaver type creature bait. The Texas Rig weights were 3/8 oz. I had bigger weights to fish deeper but never got a bite anything heavier than a 1/2 oz. I guess they liked the slower fall in the clear water and didn't want to chase something moving fast. If you are fishing the lake now you need to cover water, deep points and ledges with shallow water close by. also please take care of the fish. The spawn will be here in about 6 weeks and we need every fish possible to do there thing so we will continue to enjoy this lake and all it has to offer.

Took the boys out Sunday,3/8oz spinner worked good in the back coves by Turks. All small bass but think the one that got away at the boat might have been a keeper. roflmao
Hey,anyone notice that abandoned looking pontoon the the back of the first cove going up past Mormans bluff? Kids call it the heel of the boot. Anyway,looks suspicious. Tx numbers removed. I didn't see any bodies aboard,but didn't look too hard. 29* 32.980'N 98* 58.817'W

Anyone know if Alamo Beach is still open?....Also Wharton's Dock.
I know they used to charge a fee to launch there when the lake was up years back, and now that the lake is up again I'm wondering if you can launch there?

Whartons dock is open, kind of rough launch area with the concrete slag everywheres. Pops is closed and been for sale, I miss them being open. Way closer to launch than the state park.

Never heard of Alamo Beach.

Alamo Beach is what Pop's place used to be called, and I guess only the old timers like me are the only one's that called it by the old name.
No surprise that Pop's isn't open as they were barely hanging on for years with change in ownership like a revolving door, and the same with Wharton's Dock.
With the low water levels it's hard to make it when you only have the locals to stay in business.
Glad to hear Wharton's is open. I used to own property there up until about 25 years ago and I haven't been there since....Time flies!

Jimbo, they have been decimated by the drought without a doubt. Many of the lakes have fallen on hard times, all the hotels around Amistad have closed. Hotels at Choke are on their death beds too, the fishing economy in south Texas is bad, very bad.


Sorry to get a bit off topic, but I know Jimbo doesn't get to fish too much anymore.

Jimbo just like Marcus said, there are still some left in Medina just not as many.

The place to be for the whites is on the Nueces down at George West, they are loading the boats there!

We went Saturday scouting,hit the backs of coves with little to show. Did ok on small black bass at the mouths and points 25' of water. Jimbo asked about whites, we seen a couple schools along the creek channel across from goat hill area. 25' ledge dropping to 43'. But...That was 5pm and boy said,let's go load the boat,I'm cold! So we'll check that area this weekend hopefully. And hopefully get the new ipilot trolling motor installed. Going without a troller is frustrating. BTW,the carp are schooled up and in the shallows sucking larva or something off the surface. Nice I guess if you need to adjust settings on your graph but...

Fished Sunday in the fog and only turned up 3 keepers, several smaller bites. Also noticed a very large school of carp on the surface near the spillway. I feel like they are just about ready to move up. Found a point with some grass on it, I had no clue that was a thing, I thought they were all sticks and rocks. Anyone else find grass?

It wasn't hydrilla, but i'm not sure what type.

It was underwater in 6-8 ft and what I brought up on my crankbait a couple times looked like bermuda runners almost. Brownish green color, no real leaves yet.

I'll have to get a picture next time unless someone knows what I am talking about.

It's getting close for the whites up river, but they should be staging in the Mormon's bluff area at the mouth of the river.

Went Saturday afternoon,pile of folks and boats at Lebold point. I just idled past. Didn't see much action. Guy caught a small white in the shallow cane. Zoomed up to the cove near Alamo beach,TM up creek a ways but pretty dead. Just decomposing cane and grass. At the mouth on way out,shad was busting and small black bass were after them. I got my ipilot mounted and front graph. Was a equipment tweaking/tryout trip. Beautiful day to be on the water. But ride back to the ramp was a tad cold at dusk just t-shirt and shorts. I did see some fools pulling a tube at dusk,and a drunk kayaker taking up both lanes and 10min to load into a truck. Oh county ramp has some perks for membership.

Went Saturday again earlier this time. Still trying to see where the crappie are. Hit the shallows up river. 4' water to the side=12-14" black bass. Went to 30' water on structure towards Turks and just bluegill nibbles and 12" bass,went to steep cove 80' main lake and marked deep fish,by then it was 2pm and need to take a break. Came back near 4pm and hit the cove to right of the island. Marked fish at a channel,39' steep drop off. Again short bass. Very active on blue and white crappie jigs. Went back to the deep cove. Marked hybrids at 70-80' active feeding. Spot locked in 86-89' and jigged right off the bottom. Quick hookup and short fight. A 12" black bass. His eyes popping out but swam quickly back to the deep. Gave up on that and hit the 30' near by on structure again and activity,last short bass at dark. We had enough. All caught on crappie jigs of some flavor of blue and goldfish. Going to be great bass lake. Schooling shorties everywhere. Either I need to give up on crappie and start getting better on black bass,or someone needs to throw me a bone. Fun day on the water,thought about going again today but I needed to take a break and my boat trailer needed work. If I can't figure out crappie here,I'm gonna travel crying

I fished Saturday 2-18 but only caught one LMB under the limit. I think we started too late in the morning.

The guy that was fishing with me caught a fat, healthy 16" LMB in about 10 feet of water, early afternoon, with a crankbait, in a steep drop-off area near a brush pile. We did not think to weigh it until after he released it.

I took my daughter out on Monday afternoon from 2-5 and we ended up with 15. She is still learning how to fish a Texas Rig and missed quite a few fish. A couple of well experienced fisherman could have easily had 20-25 fish. We only fished with plastic worms. She was using a purple/motor oil colored worm and I was going in between a June Bug and a solid black color. Most of the fish we caught were in the newly covered brush/sticks around 2-5'.

Edit: Forgot to mention that we only caught 2 that were worth talking about. She got one that was 1.23 and I got one that was 1.48 lbs. The rest were around a pound or smaller.

Fished Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30 using plastics, both Texas rig and shakey head jig. Caught three, with the one in the picture being the largest. I am no expert but this one looked like a female with eggs, very fat under where my left hand is at. All fish released.

Nice job. Looks like a female to me too.
I really wanted to go fishing this past weekend,but...My first real hard hitting flu started Friday. Oh man! I will get the vaccine next time. Flu don't play around. Tuesday at noon is when I started feeling normal again.

Not to get off topic, but don't feel too bad about skipping the flu shot. There is a strain going around that was not covered by the flu shots this season so those who had the shot could have caught it anyway. I just got over it myself; I was laid up in bed for two days with a fever, then it took about a week to get back to normal.

I am not saying flu shots are useless. On the contrary, I get one every year. They just do not always cover all of the strains that are around.

Back on topic... I hope to hit Medina again this weekend, hopefully early in the morning. I'll report back if I do.
