Loc: Highland Village
I was headed home this evening and checked the weather. I saw that the winds were forecasted to be 5-10 out of the south. Decided to make a quick run to the lake and see what the crappie where up to.
Pulled away from the ramp at 6:25. Decided to hit a few brush piles in 15-20 foot of water. Dropped a Crazy Angler Sour Grape jig. Dropped the gig into the water and before I could get down to the brush, fish on. Next 4 drops and had the same result. Proceeded to catch another 25 off the pile. Decided it was time to move to another brush pile and ended up with another 10 before I called it an evening.
Returned to the ramp at 8:10. The gentle south wind I had expected was not to be found. instead, had a 15-20 mph out of the north and then switched to the east as some pop up storms fell apart to the north west of the lake. Fish where stacked on the windy edge of the brush piles suspended above the brush. Both piles where in about 18 FOW and fish where at 10-12 foot depth. The fist five caught where all keepers. After that, about half legal and half dinks. All where released to catch again later. All in all, a pleasant end to the day other than the wind.
Fish weren't to picky on color. Jigs used are pictured below as well as a Bone Head Palestine special slim stick.

forecast formula for wind in Texas...
Take the forecast (5-15) and add the numbers together, 20.
now double that number, 40.
divide in half, as the low end, 20, and use 40 as the high end, 40
now you have the formulated wind/gusts...20- with gusts to 40.
