Big fish are getting hooked on Lavon. Cut shad, carp, and sunfish all are producing. Big cats have been in 27-30 ft main lake. Then another population has been locating themselves in approximately 4-10 ft of water shallow. Coves and secondary points near the creek channels have been great. Seems most of the big fish are shallow now. But like I said there’s still a population deep if you can find them. I don’t start dragging baits until I see at least 10 targets on my side imaging. I don’t like the drift blind not knowing what’s around me. Just because yesterday I caught fish in one spot doesn’t mean they’re going to be there the next day. I’ve seen the fish go from a Collin Park all the way up to Tiki Creek the next day. Once you find the bait wall, which is approximately 5 to 15 foot thick of straight gizzards, that is usually where the mass population of Blue Cats are. If you want to fish the shallows you need to go way north. Just because we say shallow doesn’t mean you can go anywhere on the lake and fish 5 foot and catch them. You need to find shallow flats that are approximately 5 to 8 foot. Like underwater old farming fields that were flooded when the lake was built. Otherwise just stick to the deep and don’t drop until you find some. Biggest to my boat this year so far is 44 pounds. Seems like the average fish this year is 20 to 25 with a couple 30’s as kickers. 10-15 lbs is average eaters. Wind permitting.
