Friend Ed D. took me out on CC in his boat from 8 AM til noon today. We started at Saint Annes Point East and found them in 12 fow. Spent about 2 hours catching sandies on a #1 Mepps. I started with a number 1 because my #2 line was messed up, and I started catching them immediately. Ed started with a #4, then a #2, but wasn't doing that well. So, he switched to a #1 and started catching. About 10 AM we decided to go see if they were still at Key Ranch Drop-off. They were, and we caught the rest of our 108 fish there in 13 to 15 fow. I broke my rod holding up one of the heavy sandies while talking to Ed. So, the last 5 fish I caught were on a #2. We left still catching fish.

September is the hardest month for catching white bass here in Texas. Most of the fish are feeding on the newest hatch of shad. So you have to go to smaller baits. Yesterday cliffshot and I were out in separate boats, and we had a good-sized school of sandies down on the bottom between us. We were both casting #2 Mepps, and we would catch a fish every 5 to 7 casts. So, I switched to a #1 and started catching one about every other cast. Surprisingly, fishing a #1 is about like fishing a #2. Work it the same way as shown in my video. One tip: put a little more bend in the wire for a #1. That will help feel the drag of the spinner spinning and help the spinner start spinning. Here are pics from today:

Thanks Dennis. Seapro is right. You can always seem to figure them out.

I may try this morning by myself. I want to check out the rig I have set up using a crappie jig behind a bottom weight.

Thinking if I can drag this along the bottom they might just like it. Trying to substitute for a "hellpet trolling rig" but casting. I just can't do that trolling thing.

Thanks again for the excellent report.

God bless.

9/6/2021: Took nephew/stepson Adam out on Cedar Creek Lake today from 8:45 to 11:45 AM, and we had a good trip catching 75 fish:74 whites and a cat. We started at Saint Annes Point East. Fish were in 12 fow on top of the point. We set up to the side of the fish so we could know if they moved, and they did a couple of times requiring us to adjust our spot-lock position. We were casting #2 Mepps spinners with the plastic removed from the shank of the treble hook to make the lure look smaller. After a lure got hung on the bottom and we had to break it off, we decided to see if we could find fish at another spot. So, we headed east to Swing-set Hump but didn't see much there. Then we moved a little farther east to Flagpole Point and hit the mother load. We caught them there until Adam was ready to go in. We left with them still biting. Note the fish were NOT on the roadbed that goes through the point but were on the shallower part of the hump just 50 yards east of the road. We kept 44 fish to clean to eat for lunch and restock Adam's freezer. Here are some pics:

After company left, I went back out for a couple of hours and caught another 25 whites and a 20 inch hybrid. Here's a pic of the hybrid with the #2 Mepps that caught it. Note the bare treble hook and the bend in the wire.

9/15/2021: Friend Gordon went out with me, and he needed some fish for the freezer. We caught fish at Saint Annes Point East, 60 Acre Hump, Pole Dance Point, and Carolyn Estates Point. I think he kept 46 whites and a hybrid to clean, and we caught a total of about 75 fish. We are still catching them on a #2 Mepps and a #2 Mepps with the plastic removed from the hook shank. Removing the plastic reduces the profile slightly, which helps with the small shad still what they are feeding on. Fish we caught were in 12 to 18 fow.

9/18/2021 Checked one spot - Flagpole Point and it was covered with fish. I caught 25 whites and the catfish below in 12 to 16 fow. It was 30 inches long, and I caught it on a 1/3 oz nickel Little Cleo shown with the fish.

9/20/2021: Checked 6 spots this afternoon from 4 to 6 PM. Nothing at A-Frame, Sam's Hump. and Long Ridge West. Found a huge bunch at Key Ranch Drop-off. Caught 9 in 10 casts with a nickel-colored 1/3 oz Little Cleo, then 9 in 10 casts with a #2 Solver Mepps, and then I tried a #4 silver Mepps and caught 5 in 10 casts. On the cast I missed on both the Little Cleo and #2 Mepps, I got two strikes. Fish were in 12 to 16 fow. Also, found fish on the underwater point just north of Key Ranch North. Caught 11 there in 14 to 16 fow. This is the second time recently I've found fish there. Think I'll add this to my map as Key Ranch 23.
