Why do you only keep males? A flood would bring more fish up. Thatís why the bite has continually slowed. If it comes a heavy rain on Saturday you will see what I am saying. It definitely wonít wash it all away lol

Iíll take a really, really solid rain but no flood. Surprisingly quite a bit of the unseen brush and laydowns that I marked while walking it few years back when it was really down are still in the same spots. Iíd like it to stay that way. It helps in fall/winter roflmao

I have been throwing back the Females to help the spawn. Once they show signs of post spawn and they did their job "It's on like Donkey Kong". There is no shortage of males up waiting for the ladies to show up. So from what I remember its about 2-3 weeks from the time the males show up the females come up.. The few larger fish I have caught had solid bellies which could mean a half a million eggs.. I think it's worth it to let them drop the eggs first.. If they are showing signs of the rue drop, its meat on the table.

Gotcha. If you really want to help the spawn then it would be best to not keep any fish. It takes two to get the job done. Think of it this way, when you leave the creek with limits of males then there are 25 less males to fertilize the eggs each time when the females do show up.. There are just as many females as there are males and every male taken is one less that will fertilize the eggs. It only seems like there are more males than females because you are fishing the spawning grounds. When the females show up there is an even number of both . Never quite understood the idea of wanting to help the spawn by releasing one sex and leaving with a limit of the other when it takes both to make more.

Males have more sex than females. Its just the way it is.

Funny stuff.. The females hold the key, the males have probably already fertilized the upper end of the creek.. Prob will continue for a while.. So hard having to go to work with days like today.. Hope the rain isn't too much.. Will see on sunday...

Be safe

Angling pressure isnít gonna have an effect on the spawn. Less than10% of the fisherman are capable of taking a limit every trip, on a grand scale that is nothing. Sandbass spawn like rabbits, the only thing that will have an effect is heavy gill netting or castnetting.

Me and my son checked on Denton creek about an hour ago.. TC boat launch is chocolate milk and swirling.. Went over to the neighborhood near the hole and walked over to creek. Even the trail was about 10 inches deep walking to the creek. Water at the hole is about 6-7 feet higher than yesterday.. Im blaming all this on fishin'aholic2.. He had to say the F word.. Me and little man are going to go to the park out near main lake and look around.. Some strange things show up after a rain like this.. Be safe and will post any info if we run across anything interesting..
Glad we fished as much as we have over the past few weeks.. pay close attention to the orange traffic cone. If you have been fishing Henrietta Hole lately you will remember the cone hanging from a tree.

should be easy limits next weekend. Much more fish will be up. Just needs 4-5 days for the water to calm and clear up. Should also be a decent amount of crappie.

We took the kayak/canoe and launched at Trophy club park near the main lake circle. Lake came up almost 1 foot, upper end of the lake is muddy, looks like the upper 25% of the lake is muddy. I could see the color change down the lake. Only thing I saw was some large gar, ran into a few large ones with the canoe. Will be a litrle while before yhings settle down. Still have a pretty strong current down the creek.

Yep, may take 3 or 4 years before they get the courage up to go back up there.
