I've searched around the forum -- haven't found much regarding chasing Largemouth.

We are wanting to run this weekend and not looking forward to another shutout day like we just experienced on Lavon. frown



Anyone..? fish


Yes... I am a nerd who's slightly obsessed with Zelda - Majora's Mask.. and yes! I do love bass fishing!

The north side of I-30 bridge near Bass pro with square bills early and senkos a little deeper once the sun gets up.

Thanks for the tip— we’re normally productive on the rocks with white for largemouths. I think we are going to run the river. I haven’t heard anyone talking about the lily pads, so I’m not sure if they’re still there or if they’ve died off. I guess we will find out tomorrow though dance2

Ok bud. Haven't been up the river in a while. Just know that for LMB I can always catch a few on the rocks all around that lake. Also the Yacht club area holds some good fish. Good luck. Liked your Lavon reports by the way.

Water was stained and about 85 or so degrees. Got two Bass, both about 14 1/2 inches long, about 2 ponds or so. White and chartreuse spinnerbait with one gold and small silver Colorado blades and a Pumpkin Seed/chartreuse craw trailer. Got one on the inside edge of tires at the marina just north of 30 and the other off the end of the 4th boat dock, 5th row of boat docks in Dalrock...tough day. Couldn't get bit on weeds or rip rap.
Had a nice photo but can't get it to download.

Same here, it's been a long time! We made an attempt to get to the river but with the lake being 2' low (plus me not being familiar with the area) we decided to turn back after we got to the powerlines. It got way to shallow and we were struggling with all the timber dunce

I didn't even think about trying the yacht club but we did run some decent looking grass, the rocks (30, 66 & dalrock) and the tires at the marina off 30. Everyone we talked had been struggling to get anything to bite and what would bite, was barely clearing 14" or just shy of it.

I'm glad we weren't the only ones with a tough day on the water - but thanks for the compliment on my Lavon reports! I'll try to stay on top of them and keep being as detailed as I can be.



**Side note, does anyone know what tournament was out there on Sunday? There were quite a few teams boats we ran into!

Lavon doesn’t hold very many tournaments, so I’d be surprised if there was one. The lake was fishing really good the first half of summer and word probably just spread. There’s a lot of really solid tournament anglers that fish Lavon regularly.

Had 10 largemouth yesterday fishing a slow dropping plastic creature around the bridge pilings. Also drop shot same place. Not bad to sit in the shade and catch fish. Cool thing was fish started surfacing between the bouys and the bridge. I thought what the heck I’ll go catch some whites, but turned out they were largemouth schooling!!! Caught 20 or so more largemouth on a square bill. For me catching 30ish largemouth on Ray Hubbard is an awesome day!!! Largest was around 4 lbs

Wow that's pretty amazing, I have never seen largemouth's school in person before. I'm still wanting to get better at the drop shot technique, so I may have to start working areas slower. We always fish the rip rap by the bridges but never the pilings.

Fished paddle point park tonight out of my kayak.
Lake is about 1/2 foot above normal.
Could not locate many fish on the finder.
While paddling around tried rooster tail trailing a jointed minnow and also had out some shrimp for catfish trailing under a large float a ways behind the boat.
Also tried fishing rail road bridge pilings, and several trees.
Tried perch and shrimp for catfish.
Tried worms for perch.
Tried a couple of different jigs for crappie.
Not a single bite.

Fished paddle point park tonight out of my kayak.
Had my new lowrance elite 7 total scan out there for the 2nd time on the water.
Lots of balls of bait fish showing up and some were pretty large.
Going to have to learn to throw cast net from sitting position to take advantage of this in the future.
Saw lots of fish but nothing was interested in my dead minnows. Time to grind them up and add to catfish bait.
Saw some really long thin fish on the display, guessing those and most of the other fish were gar.
If they were cats, crappie or white bass I would think something would have taken a bite.
First time out in the colder weather at night with waders, flip mits and layered clothing.
Stayed warm and dry except for fingers which started to get a little cool at the end.
Have to get used to paddling with the flip mits on.
Wind started to pick up near the end so decided to be safe and head back a little early.
Another night with the lake all to myself.
