10/16-17: Brother-in-law Rick came up from Houston for a couple of days white bass fishing. We made morning and afternoon trips both days and caught 37, 39, 40 and 39 for a 2 day total of 155. Of course, most were white bass, but Rick also caught 3 hybrids and I caught one. We also caught a few cats, keeper yellow bass and a couple of crappie, and Rick caught a nice LMB.
We caught about an equal number on #2 and #4 Mepps. We caught fish at Saint Annes Point West, Saint Annes Point East, Dam Drop-off, Sam's Hump and Spillway Hump. Fish were in 14 to 21 fow. Water temps about 78 degrees.
Here are some pics of trip:

Went on an afternoon scouting trip from 1 to 4PM. Caught 5 whites at far west end of Long Ridge, 5 at Key Ranch Drop-off, 5 at Merimac Point, 5 at Dollhouse Point, 5 at Spillway Point and 5 whites plus 2 hybrids and a cat at Game Warden Hump. Checked Key Ranch North and 3 Jug Hump but didn't see enough fish to stop. Fish were in 13 to 21 fow on the edges of humps and points and on the edges or slopes of drop-offs. All fish but one were caught on #4 Mepps worked medium to fast speeds coming off the bottom. Water temp about 73 degrees.
