I located a good school there then a boat, which had been out in the deep, came trolling by too close to set up on fish. He had a kid with him, and I figured they may have been trolling throught the spot. So, I went on and checked out Doll-house Point. Not much there but did find some at Spillway Point and caught 5 whites and a cat there. Ended up at Game Warden Hump and caught another 20 whites on 2's and 4's before heading home at noon. The whites at Game Warden were the best - all going 13 to 15 inches.

Between yesterday's post and today's, you can see that fishing is good right now at Cedar Creek Lake with fish on both deep and shallow structures.

Two questions for you Dennis if you don't mind. I know you have a map with all the names on it. Where can I find it? And you a lot talk about Mepps #2 and #4. Is there a specific color that you like? I used to do a lot of striper and hybrid fishing many years ago but never on Cedar Creek. We rented a house down there the last week of August and plan on taking a couple boats out.

Look in Dennis signature and he has links to the map and info on his Mepps method.
Both are very helpful

Caught a couple of nice hybrids this morning. One 20" on #4 mepps at Iron Wall Hump and the other 24" on #2 mepps at Spillway hump, also caught 7 whites and 1 yellow bass. I marked good concentrations of fish on both humps but for the first time had a hard time getting bit -- usually if I can find them I can catch them. It wasn't until the end of my trip that I figured out I had to slow my retrieve down with the #2 mepps to catch more than an occasional fish.

Tuesday 8/25: Fished up north starting at Sunken Island. It was loaded on SW edge. Caught quick 10 sandies witjh #2 then went to Leroy's Hump . It was also loaded and caught quick ten more. Next went north of Seven Points bridge and fished the point on the west end of the eastern most portion of bridge. It was loaded and caught 10 more quick sandies. Next stop was the Old Sandbass Hole. It was loaded with fish, but in the 7 fow they wouldn't let me set up on them - kept moving. I only caught 5 then gave up and went farther north to the submerged buildings. Caught another quick ten there - most 14 and 15 inch fish on 2's and 4's.

I looked farther north approaching the big island. BTW it is impressive with massive tall trees all over it and very dense. Wonder what's in there? But checking my topo map and looking at surface, there were too few structures an way too many stumps around and areas north of the island. So, I turned and headed back south and fished a submerged berm about 500 yards north of west section of Seven Points bridge, Found big bunch of sandies on it and caught ten more. Then headed home.

Thursday 8/27: Went out for an hour and found fish at 1st stop - Saint Annes East. Sat in one spot and caught 25 sandies and two 20 inch hybrids - half on #2 nad half on #4. I caught fish on about 2/3 of #4 casts and on every #2 cast. Caught one hybrid each on the #2 and the #4. Fish were on the SE edge slope in 13 to 19 fow.

Saturday 8/29: Went out from 9:15 to 11:45 AM to check out the action today. Ran into Greg who fishes with CCL HYBRID. Said he was catching some whites and crappie in Crappie Island Flats area. Went on to check Long Ridge West and it had a good school. I caught 2 big whites and a 22 inch hybrid, then fish moved. I left there and went to Key Ranch Drop-off, and there were 3 boats on it - one was a guide trolling and catching fish. I caught a few a good ways south of him, but not much of a school so I moved on. I checked Key Ranch North, Merimac Point and Iron Wall Hump but not much. Then found huge school at Kevin's Point - about 80 yards due south of the main house on that point. Fish were in 15 to 20 fow. I sat there and caught fish almost every cast using the #2 Mepps rig. Stopped when I got to 25 whites. Last stop was Carolyn Eststes Point, and it had good school on it . They were at the bottom of the drop-off from 7 fow to 15 fow on the south side of the old road bed that goes out that point. Caught 10 more whites and a 19 inch hybrid - fish on every cast using #2 rig. Good luck to all you weekend fishermen!

Thanks for the report Dennis. Went out this morning with a friend to sunken island from about 6:45 ish till 10:30 and caught around 45 . Kept 33 for the grease. Was sitting in 7 to 8 ft. of water casting to 10 to 12 ft. and bringing the Mepps back to the boat. Both of us caught fish almost every cast till bite slowed, then every 3rd to 5th cast. Started in 14 fow the first 20 or so minutes with no fish, and then moved shallow and started catching fish. There were a couple of guide boats trolling and were catching fish as well. All fish caught on a # 4 Mepps .
