Does anyone else find it odd that when you read fishing reports from guides on lakes that one will say "topwater lures is hot right now". But then you'll read another fishing report, from a different guide, on the same lake, and they'll say "topwater lures are not productive but crankbaits are". Then another guide will say "topwater lures and crankbaits are not productive but Carolina rigs are the way to go".


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

I've seen it from one end of the boat to the other.

Not odd at all as 3 different guides specialize in 3 different techniques. To each his own. Doesn't mean any of the 3 are lying.
But that would tell me that I can take my favorite bait and probably catch fish. LOL

It would also tell me some guides are starting their days much earlier than others and /or fishing different depths.

If you fish enough u know there are multiple patterns going on. Can't think how many times someone tells me how they caught them, and me thinking I did that alot and never caught any.

Back in the 90s a couple of publications frequently reported that the bass fishing in Conroe was good around the hydrilla edges. I'll bet the 270,000 grass carp they stocked in Conroe years before were loving those reports.........

Back a couple of years ago they reported the fishing at Cooper was great on the mid lake humps. The lake was down 14 feet. The humps were islands and all boat ramps were closed. Couldn't get a boat on the lake. I had a friend who did a radio report from Toledo Bend every day back in the 80's. Fishing wasn't that good the first of the week. As the week went on it got better. By Friday they were almost jumping in the boat. He tells me that's how we get customers.

Thats what I was thinking! If 3 different guides are catching with 3 different types of bait, sounds like a good day to go fishing!!

If you are referring to the TPW reports, I consider them worthless (respectfully). They seem to report on one or two types of "lure" and who the hell knows how it was fished. Ex. I have fished with a particular t-rig, partner tied on exact rig and caught zero! Before you say it, I was not "running the front" I let him run the helm and I fished the back. Just trying to make a point.

Can drag and drop this report to any piece of water:

"Fishing has been poor to excellent in zero to 14ft of water on topwaters, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, soft plastics, as well as live bait."

FIshed and won an Anglers Choice pro am on Livingston on a baby chug bug in the middle of July. Everyone I talked to after the tourney said they couldn't buy a topwater bite. What they didn't know is that I was fishing in a spring fed creek that stays about 10 degrees cooler than the rest of the lake. So yeah it's possible one report could differ from several others while still being truthful.

All baits are individual tools that pertain to a specific situation under specific weather conditions and a certain type of structure/cover. There are times of the year that fish look up to feed and a time of the year they look down to feed. Also, they spread out or condense based on available light and/or intermittent current/wind.
