Lake Grapevine, May 30, 2005
Fished with a Grandfather and Grandson today, Don Levins was the Grandfather and he brought his Grandson Tyler with him to town for a basketball camp. They decided to find something fun to do on their last morning here, so for some odd reason they called me.
They met me at the dock at Katy’s Woods at 6:15 am and we were gone by 6:30 looking for fish. The first stop was Rock Ledge Park where we found lots of Gar chasing shad on top and Carp rolling, but no cooperative Sand Bass. So having given it 20 or 30 minutes I decided to take us on over to Murrel Park. When we pulled up slowly on the drop off, right on the edge of it, I noticed a large school of White Bass, tossed the marker in, circled around, and started catching fish.
From that moment on, it was non-stop for the next hour. I only fished occasionally to keep track of the school, but in an hour’s time, we had Don and Tyler’s limit in the box. They were very happy with the fact that they still had time to go back to the hotel, take a shower, and relax before catching their 2:00 flight back home. They took all their fish home, and are looking forward to a fish fry tonight.
Water temperature is in the lower 70’s and fairly clear. The lure of the day seemed to be the RSR Chartreuse Minnow Slab. Fishing is great right now on all the lakes I guide on, so give me a call to book a trip. Thanks Tyler and Don for a great morning of fishing!
E-mail me if I can be of any use or help to you in anyway.
