Message: I headed up to Toledo Bend this past weekend to try and catch the 10 lb Toledo Bend monsters everyone talks about, sadly that didn't happen. We were able to get on a lot of fish between 3-4 lbs. The first two days of our trip were a little tough but the third day was awesome! We fished a different part of the lake running farther south. We managed to pick up some solid fish. Check out the videos to see how we caught them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhTycMpFvDk

Bass~ Excellent seeing fish on beds and staging on points start your day in 6 to 8 ft concentrating on points use a 3/8 oz chatter bait rigged with a lake fork magic shad on it in watermelon red orange bellie or a 3/16 oz TX rigged wave anaconda in sweet potato pie color. as day warms move in to spawning areas and throw a wave tiki stick rigged wacky style in chrismas tree or green pumpkin red flake colors . the best set up for the chatter bait is a TFO 7'3" medium action rod and 20# fluoro carbon line on 6.4:1 reel fish your tx rig on a TFO 7'3" med/heavy rod with the same size line and reel for wackey worms switch to a TFO 7' medium spinning rod with 30# FINS windtamer braid .make sure to have a good pair of polarized glasses like the flying fisherman sea stars to see bedding fish and remember to spray all baits with KICK N BASS
Crappie~Excellent in 2 to 6 ft of water on bettle spins in orange with a gold blade or a tube in blue/white under a cork on a 1/32oz jig head.
Catfish~ Good in shallow flats at back of creeks on liver and trot line minnows.
TAKE A KID FISHING AND REMEMBER IF IT TUGS ON YOUR LINE SET THE HOOK!!!

Message: Fished yesterday and caught several knotheads around Scooter Ridge on watermelon black flake senkos. I couldn't find any grass but lots of duckweed that seemed to be holding a few patrolling males. It don't appear the females have come in yet but I expect that to happen in the next couple weeks. Tight lines WB

Message: Finally got to go to the lake house with Grandsons after several months, Fished south end of lake... Bass are biting but scattered. Best luck was on the ends of mayor points (5 to 10 ft of water) and the very backend of coves close to deep water. Best baits were Zoom Finesse worms with chartreuse tail with a spilt shot And a Zoom Fluke again with chartreuse tail & split shot. Wind made it tough to fish open water and a lot of boat traffic and rude idiots driving over the top of catchable fish within casting range. I guess it's just some people were not raise right.. and another thing it you like to take your dog with you that's fine and dandy but people please leave him at the house if you can't control him.. I find a barking dog annoying, but letting him just keep barking, and barking and barking, well after a while, well you deserve a sound beating yourself!!! Hope this helps and good luck!!!

Message: Indian Creek report. Slightly stained last week. Nothing shallow. Humps all along the TX boat lane. Find 30' and look for humps coming up to 15' or so. 4-1/2" pearl swim w 3/8 oz jig head works best. Caught a lot of White Bass on this pattern as well.
