Fishing is really gettin’ good..
White bass fishing is good on crank baits, soft plastics casting at the bank and also trolling in 20 to 40 feet of water. Trolling with White, Chartreuse and Chrome/Blue Bombers or your favorite crank bait. Most of the trolling action has been on the east side, around Castle rock, Kettletop and the rocky points in the “S” curve… Some action was reported this morning just North of McRae Canyon. But I have not heard of any action in McRae Canyon yet.
Nothing reported from the south end yet either. Looks like the best bet is to start on the East and North East Side…
We have been selling lots of live Shiners, most folks are drift fishin’ or slow trolling with them and doing very good in the same areas as above. Good reports from some locals night fishing on Long Point.
We have not heard any thing about any Crappie yet.. We have live Fathead minnows for you Crappie fisher-folks..
If any one catches anything on the south end or finds Crappie. Please let me know..
Black Bass and Small Mouth on soft plastics off of the main lake and secondary points are still a good bet.
There is a Bass Tournament this weekend so my Bass reports are slim.. no one is givin’ up any info..
Catfish are still outstanding.. North end, shallow water, cut bait, live bluegills etc…
We have a really good snow pack up North, just waiting to thaw out and head down this way.. currently the inflows have been in the 700 – 900 cu. ft/ min range. That translates into a few inches per day… There have been rumors from good sources that they may not open the discharge until early June!! Wouldn’t that be nice!! It is looking like it may turn out to be a great year for the water levels… cross yur’ fingers..
Check out Tracker, Bass Pro, Cabelas new line of Off Road vehicles… www.trackeroffroad.com I have seen these units, they are very high end equipment and priced right… We are going to receive a truck load of these in a few weeks.. so come buy one…
For you folks in the El Paso area, we are having a Parking Lot Boat sale on Friday & Saturday March 29th & 30th. stop by and see us… but a boat…
Tell mama that you gotta go fishin’ before the lake gets crowded…
come see us…
“everything is within walkin’ distance if you have the time”!!
catchin fish in Frank’s Vilorio’s boat..
With the favorable snow pack up north, we have been a getting steady flow of water coming in on the North end… let hope that someone forgets to open the damn….
the weather has been warming nicely, as has the water.. surface temps at mid lake have reached 57-58 deg in the afternoons..
The White Bass have been active along the rocky structures on the North East side.. Yesterday and this morning they were caught below Kettletop in the mouth of Pump House cove, then along the cliffs around Castle Rock.. Trolling with white, chrome, pink or chartreuse Bombers & rattle traps.. some folks are drifting with live shiners on tight lines and catching good fish.. (saves fuel)..
I screwed up last weekend and ran out of Shiners on Sunday morning.. sorry about that.. I misjudged the number of folks that were showing up to fish… We will get a new shipment on Friday about noonish.. We are now stocking enough fish that we will have a week or so in back stock…
Black Bass and Smallmouth have been very active… main lake and secondary points have been holding good fish at about 15 – 20 feet… tube baits, finesse baits. The best bet is to start with your “confidence” bait and change from there.
Catfish are very good as usuall, cut baits, live bluegill or your best stink bait concoction.. early to mid day bite is a good bet.. the best is night fishin’ up north on the points.. check out this U tube video of George Torres catching and releasing a nice Blue Cat.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Pv0RNVn-Co
Thanks to those of you guys that bought electronics at the El Paso Cabela’s and then came to us for installation.. We are going to be at the Cabela’s in El Paso on March 29 -30 with a passel of boats for a parking lot show.. so come see us… Go by and see Art and the folks at Cabela’s in El Paso.. they fish up here and keep up with whats goin’ on…
anyway…. tell mama’ that the honey do list is done..
come see us..
“never joke with mules or cooks…. they have no sense of humor”
the weather has been fair for enough time that the fish are starting to get active…
Folks are still catchin’ large White Bass trolling the east side and south Long Point with white & or chartreuse crank baits..
No word yet on any Walleye.
Largemouth and Smallmouth are starting to stage for the spawn, catch them on an a-rig underspin swimbait or crankbait + 12 to 20 foot of water . Secondary points are best.
Catfish are still very active, 5 – 15 feet of water, up North in the toolies seems to be the ticket. Night time seems to be producing the best catches. Cut shad, or cut carp & live Bluegills are working.
Night fishing has gotten pretty good also.. several folks have been buying live shiners on a daily basis. they are catchin good White Bass and a few Crappies of the rocks on the East side North of Kettletop at Night under the lights…
We have been getting pretty good runoff from the winter storms up North. Inflows have been around 1000 cu. ft/sec for the last day or so.. We are sneakin up on 10% of capacity.. Maybe we will have a decent water level this season..
This weekend is supposed to be warm… up in the 70deg range.. light winds…
So tell mama’ that it time to go fishin”… no time for the honey-do list…
come see us…
“you can never step in the same river twice”
We finally have some fishin reports coming in to start of the new year..
The days have been beautiful here, just a little cold..
White bass are scarce during the day, Some large ones are being caught by a few folks that are willing to toll around the east side points and south long point with White or Chartreuse crank baits.. not very dependable though.. the best White Bass fishing has been at night under lights with live bait.. around any structure or the marinas.. Marina del Sur has been the best for night fishing with live shad if you can catch some.. live shiners are very good…
The Black Bass have been pretty dependable. Main lake points with structure heading to deeper water.. Grubs and most tube plastics have been working.. Steve Sumwalt caught a 3 lb Black Bass in McRae canyon on Saturday.
As usual, Catfish are very active.. they have moved into shallower waters. Most are being caught in less than 10 ft of water from the bank. The north east side has been the most active. Cut shad and cut Carp have been the bait of choice lately..
No reports of Walleye or Smallmouth yet..
The fishing should start picking up as the winter nears end… hopefully….
Tell mama that it’s too cold for a honey-do list…
come see us.
