My local lake came up 12 feet last week. Heck it wasn't 12' deep before the rains. Water clarity is like coffee, debris floating everywhere, surface temp down 10 degrees. Not going to be worth a darn for another week or two

We were supposed to go this evening, but the girls decided they wanted to do something else for family night. I was pretty bummed. Looks like Iíll get to fish early next week though.

Lewisville was slow. Fish and bait were scattered and had to make a dozen throws to get bait. hammer Gettin bait was tough but finding a fishable pattern was even tougher! Looked shallow, mid depth, and deep from one end of the lake to the other. Scanned for hours and finally found them stacked up on a mid lake ledge in 26ft. We ended up with 15 and left em biting. We got lucky and landed a 20 and a couple of teeners. Missed 2 more good slot fish that pulled the little 6/0 hooks I was using on my inside rods. Time to switch everything back to 8/0. texas

whitney was tough yesterday, like Mike said. Less than 10 cats caught and my son broke off a toad of a fish. The fish went right, left, then headed to the boat, then under the boat and snap bang
