I fished a tourney on Saturday on a lake I'd never fished before.....wound up 3rd. Had a good time but never really found great fish. So, Sunday, I went to Joe Pool for redemption. I havnt been there in a few months. I would say it was easily in one of my top 10 trips for that lake. I caught around 14-15 fish. Doesn't sound like a lot, and it isn't. I have had 50-60 fish days on that lake. But! The size of yesterday's fish was a good change of pace. Joe Pool is a slot lake. And catching an over there each trip or two is common.....but I caught several. The most overs I caught in a day there, previously, was 3. Yesterday I caught 5. Not giants....the biggest was around 7-8lbs. But, it always fun to flip my bait and never feel a pop....just see the line start sliding off to the side. You KNOW it's gonna be a good one.
....it never gets old.

I fish Trading house at least 2-3 times a month and usually catch around a 13-15 pound five fish limit and usually less than 20 bites. Its a mud bottom, cat tail lake. A couple months ago there was huge mats of milfoil and the bite was genereally good but quality was few and far between. Then the mats died and floated away and the water has dropped also. Most of the cat tails have around 6-8'' of water under them now and some deeper coon tail mats are formed up. Fishing off the bank in the 15-20' are isnt my favorite but i dont feel im bad at it. Still the bite wasnt all that great. I could always find big schools of bait fish but could never seem to get any action of them except early or late in the day. Well....last saturday my bag was 26 lbs. Big fish was a 9lber. Ive never caught over a 6 at this lake and talked to some of the other people at the boat ramp and they all said they did well also.

The cooler temps and rain really helped on our last day at Falcon.

I hate to hear this, we had a terrible day Saturday and Sunday, I was really hoping it was the fish and not just us. We had 6 dinks in 8.5 hours Saturday and 3 dinks in 5 hours on Sunday. We found huge schools of bait but never got a bite around any of them, all fish came in singles in areas where we couldn't find bait at all.

what do you mean by "HELPED" our last day at Falcon. Were the previous days poor fishing.
planning a trip down there .... I was told the fishing was excellent right now. Usually go and do well the first weekend of December but was going early due to the great fishing report.

Numbers were good, but size was hard to find. Finally got on a school of 5 to 6 pounders on Friday 11/10. Best five went 27 lbs. It was raining and 57 degrees on that day, seemed to turn on the bigger bite.

Fished Texoma and Grapevine over the weekend, Tex was tough on Saturday... we caught fish, including a few smallies but was not the fast and furious action we expected to have. Fish were SUPER scattered. Grapevine Sunday started out very good, then I got cut off an lost my cool... other than coming right back to the spot I was cut off on and catching a 6 lb toad, I never really got it going good again.

I fished from 0730 to 1230 and caught 35 fish most were in the pound to pound in half range. My biggest were 9,5,5,4, and 3. I fished mostly 8 foot or shallower grass flats that backed up to cat tails. Caught most off of spinner and chatter but did get the swim jig out when i could find a couple crappie brush piles (Most of which you could see under water). Never found a spot where fish were super concentrated but they were definitely roaming.

That's outstanding for Tradinghouse, great job! I've herd it's getting low enough that its making launching hard, is that true? I've been wanting to get out there.

Yeah if you have a longer fiberglass boat i could see it being difficult but nothing you cannot manage. Definately use the main concrete boat ramp in the cove, it has around 3 foot of water at end of ramp. The other one like a foot of water at the end of ramp. i have a tracker so it only takes like 8'' to float hahaha.
