    I went out to the lake with 2 buddies of mine on Sunday, February 18th, 2024, just three days after my prior outing to the lake, and boy did it change. Due to a cold front we had in the area the day before, the water temperature had dropped from 55-58 degrees back down to 48-52 degrees in just one night. In addition to this, the water cleared up, and went from about half a foot of visibility lakewide, to 1-3 feet of visibility lakewide. On this trip, we had a steady north wind at about 12 mph, and outside temperatures ranged from 40-50 degrees all day, with mostly sunny, bluebird skies. On the previous trip, we had caught all of the fish that made up our 21 pound bag on spinnerbaits in extremely shallow water on standing timber, but with the changing conditions, that bite was way less consistent, as we only were able to catch 2 this day on the spinnerbait up shallow, and we had to switch from a white and chartruese spinnerbait to a bluegill colored one to give a more natural presentation with the cleaner water. After trying that bite for several hours and only catching 2, we moved out of the creeks on the upper end of the lake and made our way down to the south end by the dam, where I then picked up the new Gravel Dawg 10 from strike king in the fire craw color, and was able to boat a few fish, including the big fish of the day pictured with the report, a 6 pound 10 ounce beast, the biggest bass I have ever caught out of Muenster Lake. After fishing the rip rap at the dam with the crankbait, we moved into the mouth of a nearby creek on the lower end, and dragged jigs on a rocky pond dam near the creek channel in about 4-10 feet of water, and were able to pick up 2 more good ones in the process. All in all, the cold front made it a bit more of a grind, with only 5 bites all day instead of the 20 or so I got three days prior, but the big ones still came out to play, as our best 5 went for right around 23 pounds. All in all it was another great day on Muenster Lake, and it's only getting better! My buddies went out the weekend after this and caught several nice ones flipping a jig in shallow timber and throwing a chatterbait around, with their best 5 going around 18 pounds on a nice warm and sunny day. With the warmer weather coming this month, the fishing is getting good as the fish are making their push from their prespawn haunts to the spawning grounds. Get out on the water and have some fun!

    I went out to the lake with a buddy on Thursday, February 15th, 2024 from about noon until dark around 6 PM. It was a warm, sunny day, with outside temperatures in the high 70's and low 80's, and a slight southwest wind at around 5 miles per hour. The water temperature on the lake was between 55-58 degrees and the water clarity was about half a foot of visibility across the entire lake. We spent the day fishing dirt shallow as far back in all of the creeks on the lake as we could go, slow rolling spinnerbaits around standing timber in 1-5 feet of water. We caught several nice fish, like the 5 pounder I have pictured with the report, and our best 5 went for 21 pounds and some change. One key element to our success that day was using a Mustad trailer hook on the spinnerbait, as several of the fish we caught were just nipping at the bait and only got the trailer hook on the spinnerbait. Muenster Lake is heating up, so be sure and get out there if you live in the area! Thanks for reading my reports and tight lines!

    I went out to the lake from about sunrise to about 1:30. I spent the first 3 hours fishing all of my favorite shallow fall spots on the lake, and even exploring areas I haven't previously fished, without a bite. I then decided to slide offshore and started dragging and cranking through some brush and rock piles on points and offshore flats, again without a bite. After about an hour of this, I figured maybe the cold front we had this week pushed the fish out to the middle of the lake to suspend over deeper timber and on the pilings of the pump station and water intake on the dam. I noticed as I idled around these areas and graphed them that there was a large concentration of baitfish still holding in these areas in big groups, way more than I had noticed on the graph at any other point in the day when I was fishing other types of structure and cover in shallower depths. I started pitching a texas rig on these key pieces of cover and caught 7 fish on about 15 casts, all in the 2-3 pound class, and then it went dead on me again. It was tough overall, but it was interesting to see how the cold front affected these bass as they enter the fall transition. The outside temperatures ranged from the low 40's in the morning to the mid 70's by the time I left. It was sunny with basically no clouds in the sky and a slight northwest breeze of about 8-12 miles per hour happened throughout the day. The water temperatures on the lake ranged from 66 down by the dam to 62 up in the river on the north side of the lake. The 7 that I caught were suspended over 33-36 feet of water but were only anywhere from 5-15 feet down on the piece of cover they were using. I would pitch my texas rig onto the side of the tree or piling and let it fall, watching my line and holding it in between my fingers to detect the bites as they would pick the bait up on the fall. It was a painfully slow way to fish but it was the only way I could get bit this tough fall day and still a lot of fun. As long as you are learning every trip out than that's all that you can ask for! The only way to get better is to get out there and get as much experience as possible. Thank you all for reading my reports and tight lines!
