I was going to post a question about the hybrids on Palestine? We will be out there this weekend also my wife and her family rented a house across the lake from Flat. I will probably do some bass fishing after they go to bed.

The day after catching a lot of fish is still a good day.

Big 155 sunk rd bed should have some on top of it by now. Heck I ain't ckd, winds are a howling everytime I get time. You can also troll out front of flat creek island sticking in 10 to 15 ft close to the ridge edges. I don't troll but it will cut your looking time in half. Found most in depths mentioned earlier, deep as I would look is 23 fow, off some sort of ridge, point or hump. Good luck this weekend and expect to get checked by gw.

Yes they are definitely on the old 155 road bed. Took my five year old the last couple of weekends and caught em until he got tired of it. Dennis Christian has posted in past about a technique he used with the mepps to successfully target guard rails on the sunk bridge but I never could get the hang of it so we just drift minnows over the rails. Will catch some small hybrids, bass, crappie and catfish doing that also. Most of the whites we caught were on the smaller side like 9-12". You will go thru a lot of minnows.

Was hoping to see a report also. Had trouble getting on the hybrids Saturday. They were on the graph one second then gone. Managed four decent ones and some unders but they just wouldn't stay put. Reminded me why I switched over to crappie fishing.

Sunday before the storms was nothing short of amazing and made me want to go back to hybrid chasing full time. Got my 5 year old on his first hybrid frenzy. No pics as we were too busy to notice the thunderheads rolling in and when started raining and lightning it was time to roll. Monday solid too but had to go old school live bait or just couldn't get bit. Old xray was putting a whipping on me till I switched over to shad too. Crazy low traffic for a holiday weekend.

Thanks everyone for the Help we caught pretty good amount of whites and hybrids Saturday. was able to stay on a decent school for about and hour. Sunday kids didn't wanna go because of the rain. Monday morning I went with buddy hunting some crappie and manged 38 between us. Will get some pictures up soon.

[Dennis Christian has posted in past about a technique he used with the mepps to successfully target guard rails on the sunk bridge but I never could get the hang of it so we just drift minnows over the rails.]

Here's the rail technique re-posted:

Fall 2009

About "rail fishing" for whites: You have to use the inline spinner technique for this to work. When fishing is slow, try "rail fishing". Locate a bridge and position the boat directly over one edge of it. You will be right over one rail and the other will be about 20 ft away running parallel to it. You can fish the rail 2 ways. The most productive way is to cast the inline spinner far enough to go over the opposite rail out into the deep water. Let it go to bottom then crank it back a few turns and let it go to bottom again. Crank it in some more and when the spinner gets close enough to the rail, you can feel the drag of the line coming over the rail. Keep cranking at a medium to medium fast speed so the spinner will not hook the rail. When the spinner clears the rail, you will feel a let-up on line tension (assuming a fish didn't latch on as it came over). Immediately release and let the bait drop just this side of the rail. When it hits the bottom, take up slack and crank several times as usual. If no bite, try a 2nd crank on top of bridge. You catch the most fish on the 1st crank this side of the rail. You will also catch a lot as spinner comes over top of rail and on 2nd crank after you come over rail.

The other way to rail fish is to make medium length cast down the bridge just inside the rail you are sitting over. Just work the inline spinner technique parallel to rail and on top of bridge close to the rail all the way back to boat. All the bridges (at Lake Livingston on Old 190) have in tact rails except the 1st one east of the river channel. The rails are OK on each end of it but the middle section of bridge is out.

My family and friends have been using this to catch whites since the early eighties. When fishing is really tough, you can usually catch them this way. Good luck and feel free to ask questions if I didn't explain it well enough.
