Fished on Lake Navarro Mills Tuesday morning. Mine was the only boat on the lake and the water was flat as glass. Was hoping for crappie and fishing with minnows, but wound up with a mixed catch - bass, crappie, and a bunch of white bass. Plenty of fish, even if it wasn’t all crappie.

Livescope was showing fish around the trees and stumps where I was trying for crappie, but no luck there. Most everything I caught was at the dam in 20’.

Howdy, Red. It was fun. Too bad the wife had decided to quit fishing. I found a big school of fish down by the dam, caught one and found out what they were and for half an hour or more I caught a white bass every time I dropped a minnow near the bottom. Thank goodness for Spot-Lok.

Down by that concrete structure we fished unsuccessfully, I reeled in a few big crappie and a bass of about 3 pounds. He gave my crappie pole and the 6 pound test a real workout. Around the stumps we fished I caught nothing. Not even a bite. But I lost my pink jig head. Replaced it with a chartreuse one, went to the Dam and tore up the white bass. I’m still wondering if the Jig head color change mattered.

A good day for a mediocre fisherman...

More than happy to share the info I have. Just say when you want the download.

I should mention that we’ve had best luck with minnows, and I say that because the Marina is being sold, so they don’t have any minnows right now. The General Store on hwy 667 has them though.

Went last weekend and didn't get a bite in my normal spots, first toss at one of the cormorant trees with a pink head crappie jig and white grub got me a 4lb cat on my ultralight, that was a great little battle. I drifted the dam and found a ton of fish, couldn't get anything to bite on shad though. One day I'm going to break down and buy minnows.

Peggy’s is still there, but new ownership. Some folks now call it the General Store. The locals call it Peggy’s. I never tried their burger. There in Dawson is the Country Kitchen, and they have a great burger and really good onion rings. And a breakfast menu that rivals Waffle House.

The wife and I camp at Liberty Hill COE Park a lot, mostly because it’s close enough to home to drag the trailer over, set it up, and then go get the boat.

Yep! Busy on the weekends, I think, but almost empty during the week.
