Our goal was to just have fun catching fish and hopefully catch some hybrids or stripers in addition to Tawakoni's super-big white bass. It was chilly and windy as we left 2-Mile ramp about 9:45 AM. We headed straight across to Greenville Pump Station, which is on the east side and somewhat protected from the SE wind and is the most consistent spot to catch big white bass on Tawakoni. Sure enough, we found a bunch of fish, and all 3 of us started catching them immediately. We decided when we got to 30 fish we would go find them at another spot. We got to 30 in 30 minutes.

The next spot was on the east side at the north end of Cloud Point. We found a good concentration there and caught another 10 in about 10 minutes. Left them biting to look farther south but didn't find any at the south part f Cloud Point, Sun Point, Tallman Point, the Propeller, and the shallow structure on the eastern 3rd of the dam. So, we headed to Wolf Humps and found more huge white bass there. In addition, we caught our 1st legal hybrid (18.5 inches) there and a 16-inch yellow bass hybrid.

Then we went to a couple of obscure spots on the west bank that Todd knew about. Both were holding fish. In addition to more big white bass, Todd caught a football-shaped 23-inch hybrid and I followed with a 25-inch one. I had another pull off after ripping off some line. Wanting to fish Finger Point before the day was over, we stopped, still marking fish, and headed to Finger. There we found more big white bass on the western and easternmost points.

We stopped at 5 PM and headed for the ramp. If my count is right, we ended up with 147 whites, 3 hybrids, 2 short hybrids, and the yellow bass hybrid for a total of 153. All the fish we caught were in 9 to 17 fow. We caught them on silver and multicolored #4 Mepps and on silver #2 Mepps. All fish were down on the bottom on structure - none were caught out of surface schooling fish - we never saw any surface schooling fish. Fish wanted the Mepps worked slowly along the bottom. Here are some pictures from the trip:

Another perfect report and trip on my fav lake where the plan panned out thumb The temp dropped to 36f overnight so i was curious to see how the fish will response and was happy the fish are still shallow on structures woohoo which is perfect using light mepps grin

DC's big fst football hybrid was about 8lb and one of the biggest ive seen in a while. Yep she was pulling drag big time too! woot Larry pressed too many buttons on my phone for my big hybrid pic but some how no pics were taken. DOH LARRY! hammer

Overall what a fun trip, thanks for the invite DC, the fish catching machine! we are all so blessed dance2

An interesting add: While we were at Wolf Hump, I kept catching from one spot what looked like identical sand bass and commented that I thought I was catching the same fish over and over. Later when we were at Finger, I caught a big white just behind one of its side fins, which made a mark on its side. Tossed it back in and less than a minute later Todd caught what looked like the same fish. He checked its side and there was the mark where I had caught it. I didn't think fish would bite so soon after being released - now I know.

Looks like you have to go back to your old reports and subtract fish cuz you can't count the same "Mikey" fish more than once DOH stir

Great report Dennis, Todd and Larry.
Good to talk to you out there even if it wasn't for a minute
We had a great day too. Over 200 Sand bass and five Hybrid. Frank had one come off at the net.
Gene got some new Humminbird Mega SI + units and i helped dial them in.
It was cold and windy all day but like Todd said , the fishing was off the charts.
Frank got a good shot of a bald eagle. Pretty cool cool
