Rain is trending down it seems but will be windy again...

Today is so perfect - as usual im working my office job 9-5 monday - friday is always perfect right! : /


I was working a jerkbait last weekend, blue and silver - worked well in the wind for me.

You guys launch out of north or south shore park? How many boats will I be contending with ?

I will be pleasure fishing so if you see a white/cream tracker feel free to blow up my spot or ask me to move along : )

ShaneTX, we have about 14 boats, so not a ton, but enough to be in the way!
I'll keep an eye out for you, as I'm in a Red/Black/White Skeeter and feel free to do the same!
I think we'll be fishing out of the North Park, but I'm staying at South Shore so I'm sure a few boats will put in there.
I'll also be out scouting on Friday, so say hi if you see me.

Road house up the road is a pretty decent place to grab a bite - really close to the lake. Good Luck, tight lines!

Good food, but expensive. Then again, where isn't expensive?

Are you talking about the mini-Bucee's in Giddings or the one in Bastrop?

Went with my high school buddy yesterday. Got a bit of a late start. Fishing started around 8:15 or so. Caught 35 total. Typical day on Bastrop. Catch quite a few...don't catch anything worth bragging about. One might have gone 3 pounds. Most a pound to two pounds cookie cutter Strop fish. All in less than 10 feet. Water temps 60 to 64 degrees.

We need an eel grass report.

Less than 10! Great fly fishing depth. Haven't been to Strop in a while - eel grass problems? Or benefits?

Last time out the only eel grass I found was S.E. of the dam. We stayed north Friday. No eel grass I saw in the N.E. area.

The difference in the eel grass on the north and south sides is significant. I don't buy "the eel grass was killed off by cold weather" baloney coming from LCRA, TPWD, the Lake Bastrop parks or Sam Gideon power plant. Cold weather didn't selectively kill the grass on one side.

I fished Friday for practice day and Saturday for our club tournament. Friday the pattern seemed to be weightless worms or flukes on the edge of the reeds and above the grass. Also picked up a few with a small swimbait and spinnerbait.
Saturday seemed better for me. Started off with a few quick dinks in the discharge. Couple on topwater and then weightless flukes. Moved out of the discharge down the reed line and picked up a few more on weightless worms and small swimbait up against the reeds and over the grass. Moved over to Scouts Cove and the same pattern worked along the reeds. Then the storm moved in and I caught my biggest of the day (18.5") in the S Bend of the discharge on a shakyhead. Caught about 8 more in the exact same spot for about 20 mins. After the rain, I moved down to just outside the intake bouys and picked up a few more on spinnerbait, weightless worm and swimbait. Ended the day in Stock Tank Cove along the reeds with the swimbait.
Overall it was a pretty decent day on Bastrop for most of our club. Our club (Katy 4F Bass Club) had 14 boats total. I think I heard of 2 other clubs fishing that day with 3-4 boats in each club.

Forgot to add a special shout out to Forum member Boomer for the tips on the eel grass in Camping Cove. I chatted with him in his kayak for a bit on Friday and he passed along some good tips.
Camping Cove has tons of eel grass along with South Point Cove and Stock Tank Cove as well.
