Lake Buchanan Livescope and Thumping for Whitebass November 2019

Lake Buchanan Livescope and Thumping for Whitebass November 2019 - 11/26/19 02:23 AM

Today, we just wanted to hook onto some fish, and wanted a big number to replenish Jon's freezer. We thumped around the lake, and only had a few aggressive fish. When we increased our thump frequency, the whites went bonkers. We were catching them one after another, and ended with 105 whitebass, keeping about half of them.

Enjoy the Livescope footage.

Thanks Todd. You should thump for whites and hybrids on Tawokoni and Lewisville. Maybe the next time I'm in Dallas area.

You're right, there are tons of WB, and half were under 10", but half were keepers. We couldn't keep them off the hook for the Hybrids and Stripers to take the lure.... Good problem to have though. Thanks for your kind words.

Great video. Love the livescope tech. What an excellent dimension to finding and catching fish. May have to add one of those to the bay boat. Do you ever check tooth patches on your sandies? The fish at 42 seconds would have made me check. Not trying to stir the pot, just asking. We got into a bunch of sandies and hybrids mixed on Buchanan trip back in 2016 and it was not fishing, it was catching. We had to be careful with the hybrid unders though as they were every other fish caught.

Thanks for noticing. There's a lot that happens that's not shown, single patch is checked. Buchanan is loaded with baitfish and small ones. it'll be a good winter.

9" (93SV). I wish I could afford 2-12 inchers. It would be nice, but the absolute minimum requirement is to have the LVS system. Then the rest are nice-to-have's....
