Dead sticking at Walter E Long was crazy Jan 6th....started off at 9AM with the thumper in 45 FOW with only large-mouth bass attacking Chartreuse slabs and white/chartreuse sassy shads. Not 1 white bass or hybrid, Nope....the lowrance was lit up, just not with what you would think, in 45 FOW. It was solid big fish from 45 FOW to 10 FOW with what I would say its going to be a great start to a normal dead stick morning. I guess the stronger predator was LM. 1st time dead sticking landed large-mouth only.....it was back to back to back LM, ended morning at noon with 22 LM, Hybrid and white bass ZERO.

At least you had some action. Last Friday, 12/30, my son and me went to lake Granbury for some deadsticking. We caught lots of sandies, 1 small striped, and 2 nice largemouth bass. 50 to 60’ of water, fish were stacked at 25 to 35’. [Linked Image]

I sure would enjoy pulling some green fish up while deadsticking for sandbass. They're tasty!!

Fished Decker today. Beautiful day but fishing was brutal. We got 5 early and that was the whole deal. Got off the water at 2:30.

Another crazy day on by 9 and off at 1. Water temp 58 and windy...everything was deep, Started bouncing slabs and It was another LM morning, first 10 in 38 FOW, Hybrids started getting into the mix around 1030. I moved out at times to 48 FOW, Double minnow crank bait was a blast, with 5 hybrids. 7in spoon was a shocker!....4 hybrids loved it flopping off the bottom. Anything you could jig with was producing, Lowrance showed fish under the boat, kept the fish under the boat all day, real heavy at times with constant back to back fish, allowed to open the tackle boxes and start throwing anything that would dive 5 feet and beyond....left them biting, as I trolled to the dock staying 48 FOW the fish stayed under the boat.....they loved the slab again today.

Last 3 days out on Walter E Long, Jigging is getting big fish to bite...seems to be what it is producing fish. Water temp 57, trolled around and found fish 38 FOW, very aggressive.


No Hybrids again, only largemouth everywhere I marked fish seemed to be what was biting....decent size fish for a Friday the 13th!
