Fish secondary points in mid-lake area. Drop the worm in the cracks of bolders on drop offs.
I fished the lake from 10/25/23 through 10/29/23 for the Team Trail Outdoors TX Championship tournament. It was basically cold and rainy all week, with 4 out of the 5 days being below 65 degrees and raining all day long from sunrise to sunset. The water temperature on the lake ranged from 67-72 degrees fahrenheit and the water clarity on the lake ranged from 2 feet of visibility to about 7 feet of visibility. During the three official practice days prior to the cold front, we caught several good fish, including 3 in the 7-8 pound range, on spooks, drop shots, and glide baits. However, when the cold front rolled in during the tournament, that bite went away and the only way we could get bit was throwing a wacky rigged senko weightless on banks with big boulders in the many different marinas on the lake in anywhere from 2-10 feet of water, and working them as painfully slow as we could. On day 1 of the tournament, we had a limit that went 10.43 pounds with a 4 pound kicker (pictured with the report) which had us sitting in 37th out of 106 teams. However, on day 2 with the massive cold front the bite slowed way down and we only managed to catch 2 keepers for 2.85 pounds, bringing our two day total weight to 13.28 pounds on 7 keepers, which got us 41st place out of 106 teams in the event. The cold front that came in really made the fishing tough, as there were only 4 bags over 15 pounds brought in on day 2 of the tournament. The front dropped the air temps about 25 degrees overnight between day 1 and day 2 of the event and dropped the water temps a few degrees as well, and brought heavier cold rain and strong north winds with it as well. One key adjustment we made on day 2 that helped us get our bites was to add a little bit of weight to our wacky rigs instead of going weightless, either by using a nail weight or by using a weighted wacky jighead. It was definitely a grind of a tournament and not exactly the way we wanted it to go but we were super grateful to be out there fishing the championship and to have a decent limit on the first day of the event! Thank you everyone for reading my reports and tight lines!
Found most fish in back 1/2 of creeks in 4-5ft. Water temps were 55.
