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:
