Sheldon was fishing hard during the day but managed enough to make a nice vid! Big fish and bonus(?) Bowfin around the last 3 minutes. I really like flipping Sheldon but a lot of the bass are running up and down the edges of the weedlines. Seem to like summer craw but dont tell anybody..


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

Oh I forgot to mention that lure in the vid tag is called a jenko rip knocker. I get that question alot. Emerald shad is the color I believe

I need to go fish Sheldon again. I miss that lake. Used to fish it 3 times a week when I worked in Crosby. 3 of my DD have came from Sheldon. Used to be a great lake. Looks like they got the grass tamed down

I need to get back over there too, last couple of years not so good there for me at least, topwater bite was non existent. But I like it and its the best chance around here to catch a DD bar none except for maybe some private waters ( golf courses especially!!)

Yes, they have definitely treated it. No real issues and lots of open water!

Lots of big fish in there. Hope to catch a few on Saturday as long as I have a place to park!

That's main reason I haven't been. Got rid of my little aluminum and don't know how well dropping over that ramp with my champion would be.

The grass is a pain on the east side hydrilla wise but not overwhelming. I don't really go over that way since I catch most of my fish way north. Swimjigs work pretty good in the grass!

My 19 has no issues and I fished with a customer from bass pro that had a 21 skeeter for a tourney there. Its definately full enough. I dont think you will have any issues. Go catch a giant!

As I understand it, you cannot be on plane. Only idle speed. Though I think they are more worried about making a wake because of the man made islands.
