Central Texas Fishing Summary – Week of 12 December – 18 December-- 536 Fish

TOTAL CATCH FOR THE WEEK: 536 FISH – 100% caught & released

TRIPS RUN: 5 trips

AVERAGE CATCH PER TRIP: 107.2 fish/trip

ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY: This week’s fishing steadily improved as we shook off the effects of the last cold front, experienced two record high temperatures on Thurs. and Fri. and enjoyed incredible pre-frontal fishing on Friday’s AM and PM trips; best scenario was finding heavily schooled white bass still in under 25 feet of water and working the MAL Heavy Lure (white blade, chartreuse tail) with a sawtooth tactic whenever we could or working a Bladed Hazy Eye Slab (white, 3/8 oz.) vertically when things were tougher.

MONDAY AM PHOTO CAPTION: Gary Jones of Temple, TX, with a pair of white bass from his Monday morning trip on Lake Belton. We experienced the strongest action in our first and last hour with slow fishing in between. We used MAL Heavy Lures for active fish, and Bladed Hazy Eye Slabs when they slowed down.

TUESDAY AM PHOTO CAPTION: Fogged in!! Father and son team Mark and Tyler Jermstad with a few of the white bass we really had to work for today after facing unforecast fog for the first 3 hours of our morning. Fishing was tough – I extended the trip significantly just to get us into the 50 fish range.

WEDNESDAY AM PHOTO CAPTION: Father and son team Chris and Easton Lampi worked to put together a catch of 72 fish. The most aggressive fish were taken using MAL Heavy Lures cast horizontally and worked back using a sawtooth tactic.
