Never even cranked the motor for the first 2 hours.. whites were boiling the surface early about 100 yards from the ramp. Down sized to 8lb flouro, medium light rod, and a rooster tail. Had a blast with them today. There were top water fish and birds everywhere I went today. Fun day of fishing!

Water was 55 degrees.. Females and males mixed together as well as the striper. Might be a different game after the front.

Ramp 23... Iíve looked for the top water action in summer and have yet to see anything on Canyon during the summer.. Canyon really isnt like any other lake as far as patterns go. It has its own way of fishing lol.

Yea, that's just the opposite of my ex-home lake Lavon. Weird. So I guess they were surfacing in the cove near the ramp, must have been filling up on shad ahead of the front I would think.

Itís def different than Lavon it Tawakoni. Itís also a smaller surface area lake, but itís 150ft deep by the dam. They are feeding on ghost minnows.. tiny tiny minnow looking things. Usually you see shad bait balls come up before the fish. But right now you just see the whites and striper popping the water. Lake temps down here are just now in the 50ís..
Top water action has been farily consistent since September. They are actually gorging before they spawn, which will probably start after this cold front and full moon. Water temps down here drop down to spawn temps.. unlike north east Texas where water temps have to warm up too the spawn temps. a little further south we already have a river full of sand bass and people catching limits. We donít have a dead sticking season at all. The fish Iím catching are loaded up at the mouth of the Guadalupe that flows into canyon.. I donít go up river to catch sand bass in canyon. As soon as the top water action disappears Iíll be searching wind blown points and flats and theyíll be spawning there. I love reading the reports from lavon and tawakoni but they donít help me much on Canyon lol.

No problem, just have to get on the lake and start hunting and stick with it when itís good. It can def be tough and have days that seem like thereís no signs of life in it lol.

Unfortunately I don't have a fishing boat at this time so can't put in the TOW (time on water). :-(
