Tawakoni May 22, 2004
This was just about the toughest day so far on Lake Tawakoni. I fished in the morning with 2 men, a twelve-year boy and a six-year old girl. I got there early and had some great bait, but the wind seemed to be too much for even the fish.
We fished the morning and that may have been our mistake. From what I can tell and have been told the fish have changed over to an evening bite.
Well we started off on the Holiday Hump and right off the bat we marked lots of good fish and one of the gentlemen missed 3 fish that were probably Stripers. Then the magnum Sandies moved in but the action was few and far between. I had several other guides around me and they seemed to be having the same results.
I moved to the Wolf Cove Hump and then the Terrill Pump Station with even fewer fish. Each place I stopped though the fish were on the graph BIG TIME! I even tried trolling the same areas with several types of lures with even worse results.
Good news though for the catfish anglers out there. The catfish are on the rocks in a major way. So if you want cats get out there quick. The best depth this past weekend seemed to be around 5-6 feet.
The water temp was in the low 70's and the water is actually fairly clear for Tawakoni. The best part of the day was watching a six-year old girl out fish every man in the boat. She sure enjoyed showing up her older brother.
Oh well, I guess even a Prufesionel Fishun Guide has a bad day every now and then. LOL
E-mail me if I can be of any use or help to you in anyway.
