Hey guys, posted this as a reply to my post asking about shad and bass moving into shallow water Tuesday. LBJ was pretty good yesterday!

Got there just before first light yesterday and had a really good day. Shad are def moving back into the creeks and bass are following. Fished a creek with quite a bit of shallow vegetation (not hydrilla) that I had caught fish out of before, but it didn't produce anything. As always, a Spook is my go to topwater, so that's what I started with and fished the mouth all the way back in that creek. Spook, Jackhammer, and spinnerbait all without any bites for about an hour. As I've not fished LBJ a lot I just decided to fish areas I'd never fished before and looked on my graph for creeks that had deeper water near the docks. Headed out to one of them around 7:45 and it clicked. The spook caught 7 nice bass and all were very shallow. Key was finding deeper water (8' or more) around docks. Biggest one went about 4 pounds. As I fished my way out around 9am I could see huge schools of shad and they were pretty good size, 2"-3". Pulled out a chrome rattle trap and would fish that between docks. Caught 6 or 7 on rattle traps. Around 10:30 topwater action stopped so I started looking offshore. Found two new spots that looked promising and caught 8 more on plastics and deep diving crankbaits. 4 pounder was the biggest, but caught 5 or 6 that would have been just under 4 pounds. All in all I had a pretty good day on LBJ on turned out to be a beautiful cool fall day. Off the water around 2:30 when the wave boats ran me off the deep water spots.

Great Report!!
I gotta get out there and learn how to catch them.
It's really tuff with the wave boats especially if you have to use the community ramp and you are alone.
Tie your boat up and just pray the dock lines hold while the waves roll in.
