The weather is warm, but the bite continues to impress at RC. The lake has put up daily limits of hybrids since March and there are no signs of it slowing down yet.

This morning there was an hour of topwater action in the deeper water off Pelican Island. From 8 am to 9:30 there was nearly an acre of topwater fun. I observed four boat fishing closer to Pelican, but I guess they didn't notice.

Afterwards, I found a few schools of hybrids staging above the thermocline in about 28 feet of water. Using the downrigger, nearly every pass produced a keeper hybrid. Using suspended live bait has also shown to be productive.

Is Pelican island the little island off from Pelican RV Park or the bigger island North of 287/South of 2859?

Thank you,

It is the small island off Pelican RV Park on the south side of the 287 Bridge.

Thank you sir. That would be a very tiring mistake in a kayak!
