Fished the last two days out of the canoe. I stopped by the humps both days and they are not on the humps I referenced. Did not see any surface feeding. Bass fishing is getting tough, especially out of a canoe. I fished mid lake both days.

Take care all.

Me and Mason launched the canoe out of Dove at 10:30am. We walked banks picking up bottles, and chewing the fat. Did a little bass fishing on a couple rock piles as well. The sandbass were schooling between the island and the point but they looked like small fish. Saw them covering water for well over 30 minutes in this area around lunch time. We didn't fish them, just covering water between areas we were walking. Very light boat traffic on the lake until about 4pm, calm water and light wind was very nice.

Working the next 3 days, take care and report if you cross paths with them...

A short funny clip from yesterday, Me and Mason were walking banks and he found a float. They say boredom creates mischief, and their correct. Heading to the boat ramp, and mason had a idea. Definitely a redneck moment.

Watched a guy pull in the biggest smallmouth I have ever seen on Grapevine last night dragging a football jig off the bank next to the dam on the southeast corner of the lake next to sunfish dr. Absolute toad. I wish I had a scale on me because it looked every bit of 5-6 lbs. Really impressive smallmouth for that lake.

Looks like a hoot! Canoe tubing might be the next new rage!

On another note. Anyone have any suggestions on where to launch a kayak that is close to the dam? I will use a ramp if I have to but anyplace that I can back up my truck close to the water will work. Almost prefer to not be using a ramp if possible.

Thanks for any suggestions!

We found a big group of white bass yesterday morning around 10. They had the shad pushed all the way up against the bank, close to Walnut Grove Park. Had a friend and his son with me, and the boy, who loves to fish but rarely gets to go, caught 20+ on a 1/2 oz chrome rattle trap. He was pretty pumped up which was a blast to watch.

Cool! I love when kids who want to fish get the chance to go and catch fish. thumb

There is nothing better than to see this. Thanks for sharing.

I went out in the canoe again, this is 7 trips in a row. I love the canoe fishing.. Sandies are favoring dove ramp area, and you can catch some small fish in this area. Don't know where the donkeys are, but with the dog days of summer it is tough finding them.

Anyone want a free boat, there is an abandoned boat on the north side with a johnson 70. Look up the maritime salvage laws, and you can get a boat/motor for a project on the free..

Katy Woods ramp by the Gaylord..

Very good ramp, with many police visits so you don't have to worry about your stuff..

Let it be told, I have not washed my boat since 1999. Mason will grab a towel and go around the boat, but i don't wash my boat. Don't want to wash all the good luck off.. wink


Fished from 5am to 6:30pm. Fished for the green fish, crappie, and crossed paths with the small sandbass around Dove ramp/island most of the day. Caught a monster sandbass on Grapevine point fishing a ledge with a small jig. The school was large, but I only caught one from it.

Nothing to add, nice out today and wind helped the heat.. Take care all..

Got out on the bank today. Just happened to be in the area and had my fly rod with me. I went down to the closed boat ramp kind of in between Dove and the mouth of Scott's.

This is a very light fly rod a 4wt and I've just got little panfish flies. Found some large bluegill spawning beds and got to work catching several decent bluegill. The cool thing was about every 10 to 15 minutes a large bass or two would tear through that area and lay havoc on those fish! It was fun to watch and I kept playing my bluegill real slow hoping to get one to try to give me a ride. Didn't happen.

But I did catch my first ever Grapevine Smallie! Was also my first ever smallmouth on a fly rod.

Another thing I noted every single time a boat would go by small Sand Bass started boiling like crazy. I couldn't catch any. They were a bit too far out for my fly skills. I'm going to guess they were eight to nine inches. It was like clockwork boat would come by... 30 seconds later they'd start to boil.

Going tomorrow morning with my buddy on his bass boat. I was seeing a lot of activity out there today so hopefully tomorrow will be good.
