    Bass Pro Tour Changing Tournament Fishing Forever

    Man, this is great news. Finally.

    Night fishing for bass

    Everything 96 Champ said is spot on. As for a time you want to head out, I know some guys that get on the water at 11pm and fish till 3am. Personally, I hit the water an hour or so before sundown and fish through 1a-2a, but that is what works for me this time of the year. You will need to experiment and let the fish tell you what time you need to be out there.

    What would you say that big girl weighed in at? 1.5#-2#? She had hips to her.

    Texas Trip Advice

    Thank you sirs, I’ll be sure to reach out to them. I’ve dreamt about fishing that pond for some time now so hopefully they can put me on some. I’ll be sure to mention you fellas. Thanks again.

    Texas Trip Advice

    Sounds good fellas. Yeah, I’m leaning toward a guide one of the days on Fork and then walking the banks of Grapevine. There are a ton of lakes in the area that look solid also. If I catch anything worth mentioning I’ll be sure to get them on here. Thanks for the advice.

    Texas Trip Advice

    Hey all, I realize this is a non-Table Rock Topic, but I am heading down to Dallas for work Apr 29-May24. Seeing as I’m driving I’ll be bringing some fishing gear. I’ll be about 3 miles SE of Lake Grapevine and 65 miles due west of Lake Fork. With as much as we are all on water I was not sure if any of you have experience down there, but pointers/tips on where to fish that are somewhat close would be greatly appreciated. Hope you are all well after the storms this weekend.

    New Spinning Rods

    I have a few St. Croix Prem and love them. However, I have 3 Browning Medallians I picked up 10 years ago at $40 per that are my go to. Probably not the most sensitive rods, but great back bone with a soft tip that I have caught countless good fish on. I have a 7’ H, 6’6” MH and 6’6” MF. I primarily use them for finesse and small soft baits though: grubs, ned, shaky, Keitechs, salt craws, etc. and never more than 8lb line. Heck, I throw 4lb Berk Fluro on the 7’ for my Ned, can toss it a mile and have caught numerous 5lb fish. My dad bought one of the newer versions of the rod and I must say that it’s not the same so beware. 90% of the fish I caught during my trip last week were on the Brownings and I think primarily because I’m just use to the feel of them. To most guys they might feel like a branch in their hands. 😀

    Edyer- You didn’t by chance stay at Oak Hill did you? The guys next to us had their brand new $3k Minn Kota go out on them first trip out on Fri. I believe they are from Michigan. Incredible fisherman and I believe all of them limited out each round. Fun tournament with a bunch of great guys. Last May the fishing was almost as good and I thought I would never see anything like that again...then this trip happened. Every single fish caught was thick and healthy as can be. To all of the guys that are lucky enough to fish lake on the regular, thank you. These fish are that healthy because of how you protect this amazing fishery and because of that provided us with one hell of a trip. Thanks for the comments and I hope it continues to get better.

    My father and I had our annual trip and all I could say...and can say is WOW. The fishing right now is incredible. Although the “Easter Squall” occurred and it was quite cold a majority of the week the fishing was on fire. Three of the days I was able to lock down double limits with all fish coming on Keitechs, Ned’s, Rockcrawlers and grubs. Fished the Aunts Creek Tourney Sat-Sun with pre-fish on Fri. During pre-fish I found a 20 yrd stretch of bank in muddy water that gave me 8 keepers in 8 casts with the final 3 being over 5lbs. I didn’t mean to over fish it, but it was an experience out of this world. Managed 10 more keepers from that same stretch over the weekend. At launch on Sat it was 22 degrees we had half an inch of snow in our boat...the lake looked like Christmas. Had our limit within an hour and culled through the mid day weigh in. We were 3rd going into the final and I believe finished 5th out of 70 boats. Sun was a bit more difficult, but my dad was able to lock in a beautiful 5.15lb female just bursting at the seems. Most were caught in 5’-15’, but I think what hurt us Sun is that some are truly trying to move up and we’re were fishing a bit deeper still. By the looks of how full of eggs some of them are below, you can see why. Over the week I would say I had just north of 50 keepers with 4 over 5lbs and 20 between 3-4lbs. My best 6 all week would have gone 28lbs-30lbs. 33 years fishing this lake and I have never seen it like this. Absolutely beautiful. All victims released unharmed.
