Well, fortunately, this old saying was not true today on Lake Lewisville. I needed to get out on the water! Even though the conditions were not ideal this morning, they were better than they are going to be tomorrow. Hit the water about 8:30 AM, wind out of the east, northeast at 13, pretty bumpy. Hoped to find some birds working like I've been hearing about and like was going around this time last year.

Well, there were hundreds birds from Deadmans to Lake Park over to Sneaky Pete's hump, all with fish under them. MAL Lures (Mepps) from Holding the Line and Two Timers (slab and thump buddy) from Constant Pursuit were the lures of choice today. Those will be my go to's for the CAST for KIDS event at Joe Pool Lake this weekend, hopefully get those folks on some white bass.

Ya'll enjoy your weekend!

[align:right][/align]I always say wind out of the East and you will catch a beast east wind usually means low pressure and lots of action itโ€™s that high pressure West wind that sometimes throws you a curve ball :-) always great to have success!!

I was told by a feller older than me, that when you see airplane vapor trails way up high, that is a good fishing day.

Guess I've always had it wrong. I thought that it went "wind from the east... damn them fish gonna feast".

If the cows are laying down:
Turnaround.

I'm liking Chris and Tread's theories much better than that old saying I'd heard. I always thought it was unfair the east was getting such a bad rap, ha!

Nice report. If you have a chance to go fishing then go. The fish will let you know if they are going to bite. I have caught them in pretty much all conditions. hooked

Wow , con-trails being added to a growing list of reasons to fish or not fish !!
Wildlife behavior has always been a key indicator . Barometric pressure changes as well .

Always heard east is a beast, west is the best. And ever since my dad told me about if cows are laying down then turn around. To this day every time I pass a cow pasture I look to see if they are on their feet or not.
