Maybe they got it wrong ?

Braunig
FAIR. Water stained; 83–87 degrees; Largemouth bass are fair on popper topwater tackle early, and plastic worms. Crappie are fair with weighted jigs. White bass are fair on minnows.
Striped Bass are fair on jigs and live shad. Smallmouth bass are fair on white grubs and jigs. Catfish are fair on live bait.

Maybe it was really small largemouth bass ? You know, this years spawn.

Tpw fishing reports are about as reliable as weather reports

We are no longer involved with the TPWD Weekly Fishing Report. It's a long story, but I was looking to expand our staff of 4 producing the reports and bid with a budget increase this past July. A bid came in under us from a lady in Dallas who has no involvement in the fishing community/business other than the fact that she knows a guy in Missouri who was involved with a show called DFW Outdoorsman for a few years.

So, your TPWD fishing reports that we produced and were understaffed producing with 4 people are now being produced in Missouri by one guy. Makes sense doesn't it?

There have been massive errors in the reports since the new outfit took over. The reports are full of misnamed/misspelled baits, species in waters they don't occupy, a new species on the coast called the largemouth drum, a massive outbreak of anglers fishing for white bass with Alabama rigs, and lots more erroneous information.


The solution to any problem - work, love, money, whatever - is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be. --John Gierach

Would Tarpon be included in a current fishing report? Could Crappie,White Bass, and maybe just maybe Small Mouth Bass at one time in the very early years of Bruanig could have possibly been in that lake. I would not think they would be there today or at least not enough of them to make a current fishing report! Just my two cents. 2cents

Great food sources for the Fresh Water Red Drum ! Other than the Large Mouth Bass and the Red Drum, I have not caught,seen, or heard of anyone catching any of the above species of fish. Current fishing reports should be based on fish that are currently being caught. I wonder how many White Bass,Tarpon,and Crappie have been caught over the past several years? A safe bet would be zero! Even if some of these fish were caught the numbers would not be enough to come close to making a weekly fishing report. A good weekly fishing report for Braunig would say. Red Drum and Channel Cat's fair! Large Mouth Bass fair to poor.


Side Note: As far as the species being stocked back in the 80's. Just guessing that TPW was seeing what species of fish could survive on a power plant lake in a hot climate environment in South Central Texas.
