    Fished yesterday night from 4 to 12 a.m. . I had a trip that went from 4 to 9:30 and then went back out for a couple hours. Overall the trip was fantastic! We caught 20 something bass and had 10 keepers! We started the day across from the Stewarts Creek boat ramp. Fishing the point werw we caught some schooling bass the other day we found them nestled up in 10 foot right off the point again. However, we could not get them to bite. I put the boat in 15 ft cast in the 8ft with Norman deep little n’s and Strike King 5 and 6xd in shad pattern. After 25 minutes of trying to fire them up we decided to make a move. We moved two spring Creek and fish the mouth at the PVC poles. Fishing the right side of the hump where the two PVC poles are close together we placed the boat in 15 foot and cast into 6 foot with our crankbaits. We caught two short fish there off the rockpile in 8 to 10 feet of water. One was on a 3/16oz shaky head with the zoom trick worm in green pumpkin. Next removed down and fished the left point at the mouth of Lamar Hill. With the boat in 12 to 14 feet of water we cast up into 4ft near the cypress tree dragging back slowly over the sand and isolated wood. We started catching fish and after half an hour maybe caught 7-8 missing a few along the way. Most of these came on Texas Rig ribbon tail Plum worms and shaky heads with zoom trick worms. We cruised over to the long point that comes out from Stewarts Creek into the main channel. With the boat in 15 foot we found some bass in 6 to 10 ft near the base of the point. Casting our worms for the next hour and a half we caught maybe 10 fish most of them being keepers! I could not get these to hit my crankbait, but they were very interested in the worm. As the sun started falling we cruised over to the bank across from Fate Sanders. This is the bank across the channel where the big white cable crossing sign is. We fished to the left towards Stewarts Creek for 100 yards catching 6 or 7 smaller bass on spooks, poppers, and Whopper plopper. All the top water lures were some type of shad pattern. They appear to be holding around the boulder rocks into 4 feet of water. With just a little bit of light left we motored across the channel to the bank in front of Fate Sanders on the left. This is the bank that faces the parking lot to your left and the bridge straight ahead of you…..the backside of Fate Sanders parking lot. We went down with spooks and a wobble head with the speed craw in brown and red catching 4 more including one nice keeper. All these fish were hanging around the boulder rocks and 1 to 5 feet of water. Our last spot was right at the mouth of Fate Sanders no wake zone. We fished in between the little island with the cypress trees and the bank to the right casting our plastic worms. Closer to the bank away from the hump we caught 3 more fish before we headed in. All in all it was a great day with some wonderful client.
