Looking at fishing Lake Buchanan in a couple of weeks. Any tips on how it has been as I have never fished that lake before. Thanks!

I fish it often for stripers and whites. I'm going for Largemouth on Friday. Will publish a report. I think this is a great lake with lots of bait and structure.

Went a few weeks ago for my first time, the wind was absolutely insane that day. We made due with what protected areas we could find and ended up doing pretty well. We found some deeper brush piles in some coves that produced numbers but our larger bites all came off fairly shallow docks targeting hard shade lines once the sun got up a little bit. Was using a Missile Baits Baby D Stroyer for the most part, but any creature bait seemed to be working better than the stick baits that day.

Striper King, can you provide any tips? My son and I want to go out after the 4th and would appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks

Get up early and net shad. Otherwise, hire a guide.

We fished the mouth of the river in Feb. and caught a bunch of whites and few stripers. The key for us was thumping. I am a bass fisherman and only chase whites a couple times in the winter so not sure if that technique works this time of year. Just youtube thumping for white bass and see what I'm talking about. Actually Skunked again Fishing is on there demonstrating Buchanan Thumping.

This morning we got our [censored] handed to us. Good bait but no go. Down rigging is the key now. Fish are lethargic with the way LCRA is dropping the lake. Reactionary bite right now

Sluggish, Lazy etc...With the water temps so hot and the LCRA dropping the lake fast to generate for $$$ The stripers get sluggish and I think kinda sickly feeling if that makes since. They want a bait moving. They are not necessarily wanting to eat but the hit out of instinct. More of a reactionary bite than anything else. Thats the reason the downriggers are killing them right now. I just hope the jackasses at LCRA don't drop the 20ft + in thirty days like they did a few yrs back. That caused a big fish kill.
