I need some help on Tawakoni. I was fishing the creeks over the holiday and can only seem to get the small ones on the hook. I was using the exact same setup as the fisherman down the creek he limited out and I only caught the babies. Do yall have any ideas why i missed out on the keepers? I was fishing with lead jig head and orange and silver with black specks. Was fishing with 1/8 jig heads until asked the guy next to me, he was using 1/16 and thats when i started catching them but nothing of size. Any ideas for the creeks would be much appreciated. Also if you have any spots north of the two mile bridge for night fishing when the wind goes down would be very helpful. I just put on a cheap graph so still getting used to using it.

He just happened to be on top of the bigger fish maybe. Find the channels and look for fish or the tons of timber along the channels. not that I can consistently find and catch big fish but I can usually find fish that way.

I haven't fished creeks in years , but this is good advice , no matter where you fish.


I have been in situations where using a bigger bait caught bigger fish. Not often , but it happens. Worth a try.

My only other suggestion is depth. There have been times when the school was layered by size. Babies on top, bigger fish underneath.

good luck

We were fishing from the bank but the duck boats were in there and could definitely get the jon boat back there.
