...I would probably have a jerkbait tied on in a shad pattern. They absolutely ate that thing like crazy all evening out there on mainlake points. Fished from 4:00-8:00PM today. Threw a Megabass Vision 110 in mat shad and they would at times hit it so hard it would almost rock you. Just point hopping mostly and keeping boat in 15-20' and throwing up shallow. Pretty aggressive in my ripping it back to the boat. FUN times. Tons of fish. No monsters but for all the boat traffic out this afternoon I will take that many bites.

Since it bothers you so much I guess I can ! I haven't been on here much this year so I have no idea what that's all about.

I fished Bridgeport yesterday morning from 6:30AM till 10:00AM. I stayed up in the river area all morning. The only thing I thru was a yellow magic. Had 15 fish in the boat. (1) was 4.4lbs, (2) others over (3). It was a fun morning. Wish I could have fished all day. With the cloud cover, I bet that yellow magic would have worked all day.

Thanks for the info. Looking to try a new lake and also try to catch a smallmouth too. What boat ramp do you suggest?

All of the ramps are useable....I prefer Wise County Park usually.

BTW they also bit on a Texas rigged craw in shallow cover and docks up in the river area. Had a few on a shakyhead too.

When you launch there do you stay in that area ? Looks like it's a pretty good ride to get to the main lake and can you stay on pad all the way ? Thanks


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

A lot of times I stay in that area as I am a river rat if I have the opportunity. It's the way I like to fish. It's an easy ride out to main lake. River is wide open to main lake and you can stay on pad in that direction. It's wide and deep. Just swing out off the shore a boat length or two and you are fine. Bridgeport is very easy to run. Few hazards at all. As the river dumps into main lake just go a good ways before you turn south to avoid Lower Unit Point. It's marked with buoys and when lake is full like it is now even if you cut short you should fine.

Main lake is VERY clear right now clarity wise. River is as clear as its been in years. Still lightly stained but a lot less than it used to be. Caught fish in both areas. Bridgeport is great for numbers and can be lights out in the fall. Great place to go to catch a bunch.

Even with the park full of campers yesterday we did not have to wait to launch or load. Lake was crowded but had zero issues on the water. Only negative was some dock owners thinking it was funny to shoot water balloons at boats. One whizzed by wife's head so but I idled up to them and we discussed it. They apologized and all was well. A little too much alcohol on their part but they meant to harm. Probably not the smartest thing I did but I was a bit pissed when it flew by her head.

Lots of info and good advice Mark, thanks. Been fishing PK a lot and was looking for something different. I see what looks like a lot of good fishing water in the river on my Navionics so first time there I might just stay in the river. Hope I don't have to deal with the water balloons but my outboards shoots water a long way if need be, lol. Are the boat docks best for using a drop shot rig if the water balloons not an issue ?

They meant no harm just having fun. They offered us a beer. We went back to fishing. I rarely have had any issues with dock owners out there so I would not think it's worth worrying about.

You can use a dropshot on the docks. I usually Texas rig or shaky head them. Buzzbaits, crankbaits, topwater and Flukes will work as will Senkos etc. Really limited only by your preference. A flutter spoon on the deeper docks are money. There are docks in river and mainlake. Most hold fish.
