seems everything is late this year, usually by now the grasshoppers and crickets are in abundance. I can tell you, grasshoppers and crickets come in many different colors from florescent green, to black and all points in between. keep a good supply of browns, yellow, chartruese, green colored jigs available this time of year.
Also soon we will see the magnificent and fascinating mayfly hatch, historically the mayfly phenom tend to happen either on or very close to the 4th of july, so this time period can be excellent fishing when it starts, then just kill fishing flat due to the fish having so much forage, millions of dead mayflies all over, and you can really catch lots of catfish on shallow set juglines during the mayfly hatch, catfish come to the surface and fill thier bellies with the tasty mayflies. A few years back I witnessed the mayfly hatch on belton and was astounded by how many dead mayflys were floating on the surface, (the breed and then die right after).look for bridge pilings, docks, timber, trees with alot of dead mayflies around them, and drop a jig. u just might hit the jackpot thumb


Many living in this generation shall never see the grave, JESUS gave us revelations and the time is very near. Dont be a soul that stands before GOD on judgment day and be told "depart from me, I do not know you".

I remember when the mayflies hatched a few years ago on LOP. I saw almost every species of fish that swam in the lake in the middle of some timber mid lake. They were all cruising the surface and eating. I saw a few big channel cats that were just swimming around with their mouths open like you see in a stocked pond at feeding time.

Medic, there are a couple places on Eagle mountain, that I used to fill the cooler as fast as I could drop a line in the water...every species in the lake would be at the party! It all comes down to paying attention to what’s happening on the lake!

Interesting, I too remember a few years ago when Belton had a Heck of a hatch. We were running some jugs in a cove and the things were solid. Had to keep you mouth shut or they would fly in. The girls (ladies) I fish with went totally crazy. We now call that location "Mayfly".

YES, I saw the big blue cats on waco doing the same thing, seeing the big uns coming to the surface to feed is quite a spectacle. as I said, BOLO around the 4th of july.

if you see grasshoppers flying out of any trees near the bank, fish ALL structure and cover in that vicinity, also keep an eye out for lakes surrounded by farm fields, when the farmers thrash the fields, that stirs all the crickets up and can start a frenzy. Waco is one of the lakes this happens on.
Theres always something going on, lake turn overs, shad hatchlings, daphnia , bird poop, ect, being in tuned with whats going on can help you understand the whys of how fish are behaving.
I recall a cousin of mine always say, " the why is not as important as the IS. "
I want to know the Is AND the why. ha
