Yesterday was another fantastic day on the lake!
I started in the back of Stewarts Creek again, fishing the flats beyond the back boat ramp. The fish were not as active as they have been, but we managed to catch 6, including 1 keeper fishing with 3/16oz shaky heads with green pumpkin and sour grape color Zoom Trick worms. I would sit in 8ft-10ft and cast into 2ft. Dragging back slowly the bass would pick it up. Some of the bites were VERY light, but they would hold on to it long enough to set the hook.
We motored out of the creek to the back of Hong Kong Island. Fishing the end of the long rock point to the left of the island, we kept the boat in 13ft-15ft and cast into 10ft. With the same lures it took a while to get the first bite, but once we did they started feeding. The next hour we caught over 15, including a few 15″ keepers! Most of the deeper spots are acting this way…..fish a while until they bite and then they turn on for 5-30 minutes.
Next we headed to the rock hump across from Bryants Grove Cove(where the cypress tree is growing out of the water. Fishing on the channel side casting into 6ft with our shaky heads and dragging into 15ft, we caught 4 bass. There were bait and other types of fish jumping all around us….usually a good sign that bass are around too!
We headed back up lake and fished the long point that falls into the main channel at the mouth of Stewarts Creek. Sitting in 18ft and casting into 10ft-12ft, we caught few bass, nothing really big though. I did see a bass chasing a huge shad on the surface and chucked my Series 5 sexy shad crankbait and caught a 2 pounder!
I idled towards the cable crossing sign in front of Fate Sanders and stopped on a hump right off the main channel. This hump in about 50 yards towards Stewarts Creek from the red channel buoy. Sitting in 15ft-18ft and casting into 10ft-12ft with our shaky heads, series 5 crankbait, and a texas rig 10″ plum plastic worm(Net Bait), we caught 8 more, including a few more keepers!
The fish are schooling in 10ft-15ft in many different areas on the lake. It can be frustrating finding the fish on these humps, points and ledges, but once you do….what a day!!!
We took some pictures and headed to the dock with our heads held high!
