Bob Sandlin has been decent on 10" ol monsters and crigs in 15-25 feet of water. Pines was slow for me at ABA last Weekend , but managed a limit, 8-12 feet deep baby brush hogs on secondary points. Now my question. What is the best lake within 2 hrs of McKinney for numbers. For him, I don't need size , I need action.

Go!!

From McKinney I would run up to Texoma. You never know what you will bump into up there!


See you on the lake and have a great day!

Sit in front of the dam and chase the 3 pound schoolers with a wacky rig. Never gets old.
