What was your ratio of male to females?


50/50 really.. several over 14”.

I finally have a report! went Saturday morning, got in around 10:30am at the airport ramp...ran all the way up to the shoals were we hit them last year, and they weren't home...headed south back down the river and started trolling small rattle traps and lipped divers...extremely slow...would pick up and run, and stop and troll when we saw bait action...ended up way down by the 59 bridge, but did not go south of it...it was slow for everyone else as well...scratched out 8, decent fish....all females with eggs, about a third of the way hydrated...

guess we were a little early...or they're south still...at least we got out though and gave it a shot...

Just like any pre-spawn/spawn fishing, cold fronts delay the movement too the shallows.. they might have even been shallow but a cold front will push them back towards the lake. I’ve been down south of 59 a few miles and been catching. Guides that are trolling down there are bringing in limits. Bite has been better around noon when the water warms up. Let a good warming trend show up and those fish will be up there.

A little late with the report, but we went down last Friday, put in at 59 and headed south. Started slow but picked up just as the water temp did, ended up keeping 54 and throwing back 8.

I think you've nailed it 100%...it's a little colder this year, which is keeping them downstream more than in past years...

come on warming trend! tired of this winter already...

Politicians, baseball players, high-powered corporate CEO's they all seem to eventually let us down. Nature, however, does not. Look to her for inspiration and you will learn the secrets to living a good life. The most Important lesson it would seem is to make sure you spend as much time fishing as anything else.

Went yesterday. Put in at 59. Only went down few miles. Picked up fish a dozen scattered here and there, but all over. Guys further down did better. Tpwd was there shocking. Said mainly males and didn't declare the run to be starting.

Where is the boat launch at "59"? Is 59 the highway number?

Thank you
