Cedar Creek - Easy Limits May 3, 2003
The fishing on Cedar Creek is excellent right now!
I fished with a mother and daughter team this past Saturday and the fish really cooperated. The daughter had won the trip from the GuideFinder Booth at the Southwest Bait and Tackle Show in Mesquite. The lucky winners name was Rhonda Womack and her mother was Teresa.
Thunderstorms had moved through the area the night before and I was afraid that might have slowed the fishing - boy was I wrong!
I tried several of my regular spots with no success when I noticed some birds and a few boats working a shallow flat on the face of the dam. Just as we pulled up the fish began literally schooling in every direction around the boat. The fish were only in about 2 to 5 feet of water so we would cast our slabs and retrieve them fast enough that they were just under the surface. Sometimes the fish struck the lure close enough to the boat to see them take it. What a thrill! The action slowed and then finally quit altogether.
I moved us up the lake to several more spot with limited success and then decided to try some other shallow humps and points.
The White Bass were and are still schooling in these areas. When we tried several of them we caught fish on almost every cast. The White Bass, Crappie and even Largemouth are still spawning to different degrees on this lake.
The water temp is in the mid to upper 70's and water clarity is good. Watch your graph for concentrations of bait and the game fish won't be far behind.
E-mail me if I can be of any use or help to you in anyway.
