Sam Rayburn is at 158.65 ft and has jumped more than 1ft overnight We got some more heavy rain Thursday night. All that water is muddying up a lot of the creeks and pockets and cooling the water down. The water was already up in the old brown field grass and bean brushs that have grow on the banks while the water was low. The bass have some cover to hide in and the grass makes it hard to get into. The water had cleared up so you could even see a few bass moving up and picking out spots to bed. We saw one fat female that looked like a football. She saw us first and eased off the spot but would move back, just couldnít get her to bite. That will change after the heavy rain so get ready for it.

Trophy Bass

The first of the week the wind blew hard keeping us in protected pockets and coves. We caught a lot of small males as they moved in. By Thursday the water had warmed up and the big fish had turned on and had begun to move up into the shallows. We were catching some good fish. Soft plastic was doing the best; with a small weight or none at all; pulling it though the old grass and beans trees. Colors were Watermelon Red to Black / Blue for the most part. E2 Baits have some DoodleBugs that work great for pitching into this stuff. The bite has just been a tap and it could be a little male or a 6 lb female on the other end. Keep good line and retie ever so often just to be sure you donít lose that big fish. For guys that have to keep on the move and burn up the water' the Stanley Spinner bait has been getting some action as the fish move in. Colors that I start with are Sexy Shad, Golden Bream or Bleeding Shad. If the water is off color the brighter colors may work better. The deep bite has been tough and the bites have been slow on the Texas or Carolina Rig.

.

One thing for sure, you canít catch a Trophy Bass sitting at home watching the boob tube. Get some new line on all the reels, get out, and get fishing. Itís nice to get away and enjoy a day on the lake. Take someone fishing this week.

. Remember the Sharelunker Program entries started on October 1 and run thru April 30th. If you havenít heard, it encourages anglers who catch a 13 - pound- plus largemouth bass to lend or donate it to the TPWD for spawning purposes. There are some great benefits doing this and one of them is that the angler receives a fiberglass replica of the bass. There is a 24- hour pager at 1-888-784-0600 Check out the Program rules at their site along with the Benefits. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/visitorcenters/tffc/sharelunker/

White Bass:

Crappie; The Crappie fishing has started to pick up with some good slabs caught in the grass as they move in to spawn. Water temperature is the big key here as a front can kill the bite overnight.
