Waco
I know Lake Waco isn't talked about much here but it's my home lake and there are a few of us on here that fish it. So here is my report from yesterday. I was able to get out on the water before the front blew and wind blew in and had a good time. The water is obviously still pretty low, so I tried to find shallower water with deep water close by. I fished mostly rip rap and rock cliffs yesterday and it paid off. I put 8 in the boat using a watermelon red Yum Dinger T-rigged but caught a nice 5.7 lbs bass on top water, which surprised me because I've never had luck on Waco with top water, but she smashed it. She was bleeding some but I got her back in the water ASAP. She did swim away okay and never resurfaced. I came back later and didn't find her.

Thanks for the report. I'm going to give it a try soon. As well, my topwater success/experience on Waco has been minimal

Thank you. I'll probably be out there again tomorrow myself, as soon as I get off shift and home. With the lake as low as it is, a lot of the "deep" timber isn't deep at all. So, find deeper coves, rip rap, and deep points is about the only thing left to fish. I know there are marinas but I've never had much luck except for dinks there.

I catch a lot of fish on top water on Waco. I was out there the same day and caught 13 but no big ones.

I went out from 8:30 to 12:30 today and got 16, with 5 that were 2.5-3 pounds. I'd guess about 6 of them were on topwater. Perfect day for it---cool and cloudy with a little mist later in the morning.

Water was 60-62.

I hear ya. Trust me, I’ve gone out for 6-8 hours and only gotten 3 or 4 several times since Aug. but yesterday was the perfect storm weather-wise. Maybe the switch has flipped for a fall pattern with this cold snap?
