Just came back from Anglers Inn Sunday night. The fishing is exceptional right now, and you can catch them in a variety of ways -- 100 a day is not out of the question, with some bigs mixed in. Our best bait for numbers was clearly a suspending jerkbait. Average size was better out deep with Carolina Rig, 10xd, swimbait. There was also a strong topwater bite (Rico) during low light hours.

Believe it or not, our fishing got better when they put the nets in the water. After 15 trips, I believe that when the water is up they affect the anglers far more than the fish. In fact, my friend TJ caught an 8-12 on a topwater that was essentially touching a net.

Happy to answer questions here or via PM.

All I remember when I went in March a few years back was Carolina rigging and black and blue jigs on the wood . And some squarebill action. But the best fish were off of the wood on jigs . Another thing was make sure you have bug spray the no see ums are ridiculous are they used to be anyway .

We were there last week of Feb last year. The fishing was good but nothing to write home about. A cold front blew through the day we got there and it affected the fish. Had good luck on just about any soft plastic in watermelon/red and also tomato. Another one of guys had good results with junebug. I fished them T-Rig and shaky head. No other baits really played a role for me. Never even had a prospect of a bite with spinnerbait, chatterbait, or crankbait. Most of the better fish came off the flats in 15ft of water. Just over 7 was big fish for the week in our group and was the only one in the 7lb range. I caught several in the mid to upper 4 lb range but that was it. I would keep a watch on the weather. Ron Speed's web site gives pretty good info on current conditions and what they are biting so I would look at that also.
