Sheldon was fishing hard during the day but managed enough to make a nice vid! Big fish and bonus(?) Bowfin around the last 3 minutes. I really like flipping Sheldon but a lot of the bass are running up and down the edges of the weedlines. Seem to like summer craw but dont tell anybody..

Oh I forgot to mention that lure in the vid tag is called a jenko rip knocker. I get that question alot. Emerald shad is the color I believe

I need to go fish Sheldon again. I miss that lake. Used to fish it 3 times a week when I worked in Crosby. 3 of my DD have came from Sheldon. Used to be a great lake. Looks like they got the grass tamed down

I need to get back over there too, last couple of years not so good there for me at least, topwater bite was non existent. But I like it and its the best chance around here to catch a DD bar none except for maybe some private waters ( golf courses especially!!)

Fun video, thanks! Any safety concerns at the ramp?

Yes, they have definitely treated it. No real issues and lots of open water!

Lots of big fish in there. Hope to catch a few on Saturday as long as I have a place to park!

That's main reason I haven't been. Got rid of my little aluminum and don't know how well dropping over that ramp with my champion would be.

The grass is a pain on the east side hydrilla wise but not overwhelming. I don't really go over that way since I catch most of my fish way north. Swimjigs work pretty good in the grass!

My 19 has no issues and I fished with a customer from bass pro that had a 21 skeeter for a tourney there. Its definately full enough. I dont think you will have any issues. Go catch a giant!

As I understand it, you cannot be on plane. Only idle speed. Though I think they are more worried about making a wake because of the man made islands.
