I fished the Sunday morning tourney yesterday. We fished a lot of water. We fished shallow and deep. We cranked,jigged, c-rigged, t-rigged, rock piled, brush piled, long pointed, short pointed, rocky pointed, boat docked, hard spotted, marina(ed) and deep structured. We were rewarded with exactly zero bites for our trouble.

there were 2 20 lb sacks weighed.....I can confirm that there are at least 10 bass in the lake. I still don't know where they are.

There was at least 1 10 lb fish caught......just not by me.....

If anyone was there, feel free to post.....I am curious as to how everyone else did.

I fished about 3 hours Saturday morning and didnít get a bite. I fished 5 hours yesterday morning and got a couple bites but didnít put anything in the boat but I was mostly just looking for new spots. I have noticed for about the past month and a half that the bite seems to be the best starting at 11 am. I donít like donating to those guys so I rarely fish tournaments here anymore.

My son and I fished today, caught three total but only one keeper which was about three pounds. Caught those early, didnít get a bite after the three. All I did was get hung up in some brush then rained on the way home after I had just cleaned the boat. Typical Conroe day for us.

We fished. We ended up in second, 19+ pounds. We missed out on Big Bass, we had a 9.98 but someone else had a 10.72.. The big bass have been eating lately.

I assume the big bite is offshore? Iím not asking for any spots, just wondering where people are catching them. My son caught the one keeper on a deep dock about 8:30. We fished from around 10-20 feet yesterday and didnít get a bite after about 8:30. Started out shallow around rocks and caught two small ones. We fished one area that looks perfect but canít catch any there. Itís on a point, old bridge with concrete pieces, has some brush on it. Weíve yet to catch one there. Itís in about 20 feet of water. Tried crank bait, Carolina rig, Texas rig 10Ē worm, 12Ē worm, jig, spoon,

I was on Conroe last Friday morning from 1 am to 8 am. Caught 6 with biggest one at 5.5 lbs. Never went south of the big bridge and stayed in two stump fields the entire time.

Actually anchored in 16ft with depths of 10 to 20ft within casting distance. Only used my TM to move a few times and then placed my electronics in stand by mode. Everything caught on plastics.

I will say I that get blanked quite often but enjoy just getting out.

yeah I think I have an idea of where to look. Then again, as much water as I eliminated, there aren't many places left to go.......

How many were keepers, over 16Ē? Thatís our problem on Conroe. Weíve tried changing our strategy but arenít catching many. I got sick of catching numbers but zero quality.

We have a spot where we can consistently catch one 3-4 pounder. But, itís aleays one fish, canít catch more than one at this spot. Drives me nuts, I keep thinking thereís got to be more than one there and usually waste too much time there. Itís about ten minutes of idling to get to it but use it as a backup if we canít catch them anywhere else. Iím determined to get better on Conroe but itíll just beat you down and itís easy to hate it.
