Talk about a blast, has anyone figured out how to knock the Sandies with a fly rod?  Hey brent & Curtis, why don't you two experiment the next time you're sitting there with a limit (tomorrow).  Scott, you shouldn't have to jig that 12-footer much to get action.

Oh man talk about heart-stopping action.  I caught 12" Sandies on top 5 casts in a row.  Then they petered off a bit.  Do I need to try a different lure, or did the school just shift away from me?

Just don't look across 78 from Mallard Park where all the Crappie fisherman left their garbage behind. icon_evil I agree Lavon is a beautiful res.

I think the Sandies out of Lavon are better than the Crappie!  I filet out the bloodline making a U-shaped cut where it was and don't waste a lot of meat-  it goes fast with an electric.  I may try that bleeding trick though.  Then it's olive oil, Zatarain's, and yummy.  Catfish is still the best though.

:x This is an editorial so if you don't want to hear an opinion stop reading.

I've been shore fishing Lavon on and off for six months now and it's looking more and more like Ray Hubbard- that's not a good thing.  Can we responsible fisherman band together to root out the 1% idiots who are destroying a beautiful natural resource?  If someone is leaving their garbage (or beer bottles) behind call the authorities.  A tiny practice I've made is to leave the lake better than I found it and pick up a couple pieces of other people's garbage each time I leave.  Can we unite and make the lake beautiful again?  Amen.  (Sorry if I got too preachy there, but this kind of thing makes me &@#* mad.)

Does anyone try the sponge trebles for carp, or are they too smart?  I tried the Big Red and Bran Flakes recipe and could not get it to stay on a treble, about a #6.  I'd add Big Red, too mushy.  I'd add Bran Flakes, too crumbly.  Two years ago I would have never dreamed carp fishing could be so complicated.

Does anyone know much about Hybrid fishing?  I've never fished them before, although I've read extensively over this past winter.  The best tip I found was HAVE GOOD ELECTRONICS and search out from the wind-blown points.
1313  General Area / Other Lakes / great tips! on: May 01, 2004, 01:28:03 AM
Wow CatMan75035, those are some great tips!   icon_twisted Those big swimmers will get hauled in for sure now.  The next time I go I may hook more than a quarter of the fish that bite.  Any tips on how to hook them if you're using nightcrawlers?  They tend to suck off the end just before the hook on me.  I think I might try a light-wire hook for starters.

A buddy and I hit I think every creek but the Trinity last weekend with zero results.  The water was up 2-3 ft, fast, and muddy.  I made the same assumption after what has been posted about Rowlett, but nada for us.  I'd imagine the rain this weekend will make everything all muddy again.  I'll be checking back in weeks to come.  

Let me know if anyone finds any sandies running the Lavon Creeks.  I'm bound to being a weekend warrior until things at work calm down a bit. icon_eek

It's still early in the year.  I found two pockets of fish South of the Northeast Parkway bridge, but they're hitting slow.  I caught and released one after an hour of fishing, and a couple other guys had three or four strung up. :?
