I have been launching there the last few times as well. If I see you on the lake again, I'll holler.

Still murdering the fish..... Had some new to fishing people. Took a bit to teach them to set the hook and what a bite was. After an hour, they were catching crappie in the thick brush and slabbing up Magnum White Bass. The sandies were suspended today 300 yards out from the rail road tracks in 25 ft of water. They were hanging at 15-18 ft so we had to measure 15 ft of line to get a bite. If you were off by a foot, to deep or to shallow, NO BITE. It was very precise.  Crappie were at 9 ft-18 ft on timber and brush. The bigger fish seem to be on timber, like the 15-16 inch crappie. Most are 10-11 inches on average with 10 being big usually.

Every morning we chase the sand bass to start the morning, cause they are just so huge and fight so hard- just plain fun. After about 830 am, we switch to crappie if the sandies slowed, or we switch over when we get the limit of whites.


http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/Crappie/E948D1CC-7BEF-4264-94CD-0B6E166C1610_zpswn58uhfq.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


If you don't want to do that, that's perfectly ok. lol. You hop on my boat, just tell me what kind of fish you want to target and we will go catch it. ( except catfish, just not my thing )

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/Crappie/9A9690E0-88E4-4A53-9D0D-FEA439A9EA3D_zpsn18ujrcb.png

Now, back to Crappie. I don't know if I'm looking forward to the gates ( on the dam ) closing or if I am dreading it? Currently the dam is releasing 3059 cfi. The Crappie are pretty easy right now even with the gates open. We start in 6-10 ft early morning in the flooded willows and follow the fish out to 15-20 ft, as the sun gets higher and higher. With the lake up 4 1/2+ feet, there are willows all over the lake that are half submerged along the banks. The crappie are up in the feeding on the spawning shad, and the small fry that are hiding in the willows. As the sun comes up, the fish push out and find cover in 15-20 ft just off shore. I am finding them on my Super Secret Secure Crappie Brush Piles that are in 12-18 ft of water and Submerged Timber in 20 ft on average. A bushy standing timber bunch, in 20 ft, seem to be the ticket from 9 am-7 pm. Anytime before 9 am, they could be in 4-10 still hunting. Same thing for after 7 pm.  Finding timber with regular 2D electronics is a bit difficult. Side Imaging helps with this 100%. If I didn't have it, My world be different.

We stayed after dark a couple nights ago and set up in a cove and turned my lights on. 19 ft Green strip of LED's. Lights up the whole cove and brings in the bait fish super thick. Then the crappie come in. We didn't land any monsters, but landed tons of 9-12 inch fish. Only took about 30 mins and it was a bite of a fish every couple mins. Live minnows under a bobber 3 ft down next to the half submerged brush along the shoreline.  -I would rather sleep than go out there at night. So no night trips, yet. Those start next month and will mainly be at Lake Fork.


I have been using Midnight Special Thump Buddies,

We can go get a limit of sandies, then after that, go get a limit of crappie. Or just focus on one species. I'm just there to net fish.

I have not used White and Chartreuse, mainly cause I used them all a teaser jig for the Sandies. (LANE, SEND ME MORE!) They are so durable, once you glue them to the jig head, they don't break apart or tear. You just end up loosing them in the brush or on a 3+ lb crappie (or a massive sandbass). I caught over 2000 sandbass on one jig before it broke off...... -no fisherman exaggeration there.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/Crappie/2BAD79C0-3F98-42C6-9562-2F76AC025646_zpsea3mvtj4.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


As the sun gets up, having the jig more that 2 ft away might be to far to get a bite. You have to be very precise on putting that jig in 15-18 ft of water right next to the timber, or in the brush itself. Some single standing timber may be hard to find on the graph sometimes. Like, getting the exact pin point on where to drop a jig. Your GPS can be off 5 ft or so. so, sometimes the gps says it is right there, but it might be 5 ft to the right or left, or just somewhere not there, lol. After 2-3 passes I will move on to the next structure if I cant pin point it right away. But right now, I try to find the tree with the most stick ups or super big secret brush piles.

Todays Report: Some reports coming in, that fishing is slow. Well its not, its on fire and easy. ok, I say its easy cause I am a guide. Normally, its off due to the gates open and all. But, the fish are where they are suppose to be and they are hungry. They seem to nail it on the fall every time right now.  I don't target the visible stuff. Most of that stuff has been hit 1-5 times through out the day by other anglers. I like the non visible stuff. Accuracy is very important in this game.  Hit all my spots for sandies this morning, and they just were not awake yet. I bet they are going nuts right now though. we started at 630am, and at 645, I told my client, this is not going to happen today. Full moon, glass water, no bait fish activity like the last few days. Just 6-8 inch sandies eating the small fry all over the lake. I said we will keep looking though. 9 am or so, I confirmed its not happening on my end. He asked what else will eat a fly. I said "Carp, Drum, Black Bass, crappie, and even catfish in one spot...." -And, of course, what do you think he picked....lol, the hardest most temperamental freshwater fish out there. Crappie. I said no problem! Went to a Secret Submerged Timber pile and dropped a marker on it.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/Crappie/7E5F5614-4C47-4794-82BE-F5B03FDB2B69_zpsog4xolz1.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Caught the tail end of the structure. All the white little round circles are the crappie. Hazy pic sorry. Busted my phones camera glass. On the left is the sanding timber on the fish finder picture


I told him, to the left of the marker, is your target. The fish are 15-18 ft and precisely at that depth. ( this guy is no newbie at fly fishing) I picked out a Clouser fly, white and chartreuse, and backed the boat off about 30 feet from the target. I had him overshoot the marker by 15-20 and do a count down to 15-18 foot deep and make short strips. It was GAME ON after that. The rest is history. Killing Crappie with the fly rod, EPIC trip as usual but with a twist, lol. Crappie have never seen that, but they obviously loved it!

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Every single fish my client landed engulfed the flies. Most pretty much had the fly in the back of their throat.

He was having a blast targeting those crappie. I was hoping he would hook a mag sandie to play with but just didn't happen. He was perfectly happy hooking crappie. We even left them biting.

I am completely booked solid this month except for a 4:30 PM trip on june 24th.

All weekends booked in July. I just have weekdays open here and there......I'm on the water from 6 am till 9 pm usually, so texting me is best way to get an answer.

Once we got to the spot, it was game on the rest of the day. Mainly Crappie. Had a 4 year old in the boat and he reeled in over 99% of the crappie today. Lost a few, lol. The little one got to put the fish in the box or let them go. Some of the big fish never made it in the box and he threw the big girls in the water giving us a heart attack! He was really funny to, Every time I would check to make sure the fish was legal on the golden ruler, he would tell me, "Its over the line, Ill put in in box." We left them biting and went in before the kid had a melt down. It gets hot out there with a vest on. Don't keep your kid out there against their will. If they want to leave, leave. Or they wont want to come back out with you. They took home around 35 Crappie or so. Black and Chartreuse Thump Buddies and minnows today. It didn't seem to matter minnow vs jig as the jig caught just as many fish. Shallow to start. 4-5 ft then merged out and followed them to 15-18 ft.

Dropped them off at the dock and my Brush Pile Seeds came in the mail. So I planted 2 of them today. I plan on catching 20 minimum at the new -secret for now- brush piles. I hope they grow up by tomorrow morning.

After that, it was dead calm and HOT. I jumped in the water a few times throughout the day after 11 am. My mission now was to find where in the heck the sandies went to. They have been hiding a bit for a couple days. I ran into a school on the surface near hybrid point and pick 3 mags out of it. But just to man dinks in the school. Most were just over 10 inches. Went over to Intake cove and joined up with PlanoKeith and caught a few mags there. But again, It was just to hot. We decided to split up and do quick looks at the spots they are usually in. Not there. I ended up at glass house as last stop and saw Keith stop in the middle of the lake and I saw his trolling motor down so I figured he was on the dinks on top. Cruised up there and they were going ballistic on top.9-12 inch fish. I got bored of every cast so I tied on a 5 inch top water spook and started burning it across the school. I would only slow it down when I saw a big fish behind it or I got a good explosion. These Mags would come up and just slam it! 15-16 inch sandies knocking my spook 2 ft in the air. Then you have Keith screaming like a kid in a free- all you can eat candy store. He got a bit quiet when he saw I was videoing., lol.  It was awesome. Every time you would bring a fish to the boat there were 10-20 behind it. Lots and lots of times, I could a reached over the side of the boat and hand fed the exploding fish. They would boil right up next to the boat. The shad would try and hide around the boat. I had to pick 40-50 dry baby shad out the back of the boat and stuck to the engine. They were apparently jumping all the way out of the water trying to get away.I might be able to get a vid up. Movie maker not happy right now.

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


 In the middle of the ciaos, I had a school of 8-10 4-6 lb blue cats under the surface swim by looking for shad. There were shad flying out of the water everywhere and sandies just crushing them for acres all around Keith and I. You would see a ball of 3 inch shad roll by the boat on the surface. they would get 20 ft from the boat and just get pounded by the fish. It was like a national geo documentary.

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Then about 20 mins after the top water mags was over, the 8-12's were still going mad. Keith said he had big fish under him at 15 ft. I did too. So I counted down 15 ft with the slab and started slabbing at 15 ft deep in 35 ft of water. Then it was game on! Mag after Mag after Mag. in the 1 hour were there I bet we caught 80-100 keeper sandies. No idea how man dinks we caught.

Carey Rocks!  I assume everyone knows in this forum but if your looking for an awesome time on any of our local lakes he is the guy.  I went out Tuesday we killed both sandy's and crappie.  Just as importantly I learned more about fishing lake lavon than I could have in a 100 hundred trips.

Lake Lavon has been pushing out so many white bass it's just mind baffling   **I've only missed my limit two days out of five months and boating 20,000+ White Bass** Right now the white bass are Everywhere!!!!!!!!.....



The Sandies are smashing cohos. Fish are in 1-2 foot of water. Average day is 250 fish over the rails. Even in this 15-18 mph wind we can still see the "Dark Water". Fish are so balled up together, the water is black near the shoreline and pockets.

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


No black water/ no fish. ( maybe some random fish, but definitely not an every cast spot- if you don't see that dark water.) The white bass are even super shallow in the pitch black of night.

24 hours a day for the last month they have been up in 1 to 2 foot of water. You can go there at midnight and still land them as fast as during the day.

Most of the babies are now adults and over 10 inches. The big girls are 15 to 16 inches.

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics




So 99.99% of them are keepers. I've always been in the habit of only keeping fish 11 inches and over. And 11 inch fish has almost double the meat than a 10 inch fish.

I've been guaranteeing limits for the last two months it's been so freaking easy.

To see what I'm basically looking out on a daily basis below is a video of what I look at it in the winter.

I'm seeing this right now in a foot of water along the shoreline's at Lavon.

[video:youtube]https://youtu.be/KhO-FaOmDB0[/video]

Most of the time, I have to cut my Coho in half to match the bait. White ice, Glow, or chartreuse on a quarter ounce Coho head.

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


 If you have a favorite place to go catch sandy's when their at 8 to 20 foot, those fish should be up on the bank ----> in that area.



We found them at glass House, all over the island, the fishbowl which is a.k.a. on the south side of the cut, hybrid point, Little Ridge, Clearlake, Lavonia, and a small group on the dam-  and places that don't have names.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/White%20Bass/IMG_0910_zpsvetejhkm.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Every blue moon these fish will hit top water. They will tell you within 15 minutes if they're going to or not.



I cannot say this enough. The fish are in 1 to 2 foot of water. If you want to limit, you have to get close, like 15-20 ft from the bank and start casting your coho on the bank.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/White%20Bass/IMG_0967_zpsiqj0qofc.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Again: no more than 20 foot, about a boat length from the bank. If your way out from the bank casting 10 to 15 feet from the shoreline, you might catch a few but you're not gonna get into the main schools which is right outside the Mudline waiting for shad to dip off the ledge from 6 inches to a foot, an ambush them. 



Sometimes we're only casting 10 feet cause I'm so close to the bank. Two other boats came in to try them out but did not get close enough to the shoreline so they picked out only a couple.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/White%20Bass/12217488-5455-4EE5-B5DF-ECB5B90B21B7_zpsl0nijdzm.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


We would probably catch 20 to their one. Get the lures on the bank! I was using traditional anchors but since I'm so close to the bank I keep snagging roots and some merged trees. So now I use two cinderblocks.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/White%20Bass/1BBFEB3B-D582-4601-A861-F6C66121EF20_zpshuovmea2.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Soon as I get to the depth I want and as far as I want from the bank, I just toss them over the side and they hold me right there. $1994 cheaper than a power pole. It'll do till I get the Ultrex ipilot. Still waiting on it.

This is a fly Fishermans dream land right now.

Changing topics really quicksince I mentioned fly fishing, as many of y'all know I guide for a multitude of different species. When I'm not at Lavon, I'm up in Broken Bow at the Lower Mt Fork River. Normally I'm chasing brown and rainbow trout, but the same flood that happened here has changed my game at this river. Most of the trout they are stocking are 10-15 inches with a rare 20+.

Now here is the awesome thing that has happened. Not for the trout fisheries, but the bank angler. When the opened the gates all the way for a month or two, they flushed "lots" of Walleye into the river. One  gentleman was reeling in a 10 inch trout and 5+ lb Walleye shredded it up while reeling it in.

Broken Bow @ Beavers Bend State Park Fishing Guide Report: Lower Mountain Fork River



The fall colors are probably going to start popping out within the next week or two. I'm starting to see some of the trees turning red and orange splotches, getting ready to really pop. Should be a beautiful scenery in the next coming weeks. I think we're at the tail end of the monarch migration. That was a beautiful sight to see, with hundreds of monarchs all around you all day long.



We shared one of our spots with a bald eagle all morning long one morning, perched right above our heads in a tree. I was out scouting in a couple places I've never been before and noticed an eagle dive at a fish. I remembered an episode of one of those Alaskan reality shows where they live in the woods. One of the guys said he follows the bald eagles to the fish, like we follow the Seagulls to the fish. He was right, my new bird friend was definitely on fish that day as we slammed them. He even had some skeletons below his tree of some pretty spectacular fish. Mr. Eagle even made me jealous.

At this current moment the river is semi-full of 10 to 11 inch wild stocker rainbows. They are obviously stocking a couple bigger ones as I saw a couple 20+ inch bows in the Evening Hole and a couple other spots. The big girls get yanked out quick if stocked in a blue zone. Catching small fish is really just not my thing, so right now we are fishing for walleye, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, crappies, and monster bluegills.

My main target is the Walleye right now. I am pretty sure, there are actually more walleye in the river then there are trout now. There is one pocket that we know of that has over 100 baby walleye. 12 to 13 inches. They absolutely just everywhere in the river system. From Spillway Dam to the Red River. There are a bunch of deep pockets from the Spillway Dam to the Evening Hole, but be very careful going there. If you don't have polarized glasses you're pretty much wasting your time. Slick rocks can send you in a 12 ft hole. When your scouting, If you cannot see the bottom of the river in a pocket, there's probably a walleye in there!

~Anyways, we are flyfishing and using spinning tackle. For fly fishing, we are throwing clousers, streamers, and Sparkling Olive Near Deere's at the fish. Clouser colors vary from white and chartreuse, green, green and chartreuse, black, gray and white. Streamers very in all shapes forms and sizes and colors. I tend to do well on olive or black crawfish imitations or shad streamers in white or grey with flash.

( this bug was bigger than a silver dollar. Found it under a rock in the river)
Most streamers and clousers are 2-4 inches long. On occasion we will hook up on the Game Changer pattern. It's a segmented fly. Very fun to tie and mostly to fish, but, the profile is to big for most of these fish. So weather it's fly fishing or spinning rod, I will get you on these fish. If you would like to learn to fly fish as well, after about two hours max, you will be doing everything on your own. All I will have to do is tell you where the fish are.

Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Spinning gear: we are using 4 pound mono with a 4 pound floro leader on 7-9 ft rods. We will use rooster tails, tiny flukes, curly grubs, and small jigs used for catching Crappie's like a Thump Buddy in glitter clear, and small cranks like Rapalas. If they just will not hit a lure/fly, we will switch over to live bait ( rarely do I use live bait) which includes earthworms, crickets, and live minnows. Sometimes they want very small minnows or they'll end up wanting 4 inch minnows. You just have to pay attention to the shad hatch and match the size of the bait swimming around. When the sun comes up, the fish move a bit deeper usually. But some days, even on a bright sunny day, they might be sitting in 1 ft of water and sometimes even in the rapids. Most of the time we are off the beaten path power fishing the deep pockets where most people don't venture.

The White Bass are very abundant in the river as well. Couple weeks ago the sandbass school came into the pool we were at, I landed well over 100 Sandies that were 15-18 inches long with only one small dink on a jig. The fish were ten feet in front of me and would school on the surface chasing my fly. About an hour after that they would not touch an artificial lure/ fly at all. I tried for about 20 minutes to no avail. I threw grubbs cranks rattletraps, rapalas, and all I got was just that one dink. Switched to minnows and casted to the same pocket and immediately hooked up. I caught sandy after sandy for 2 1/2 hours every cast 10 feet in front of me. Sometimes I would catch 2 to 3 Sandy's on the same minnow. But still, they wouldn't touch any lures after that time they quit hitting them. It was very very odd. Normally we don't have an issue catching them with lures and flies. They were just really zoned in on live bait this day ( not normal ) But still super fun with 4 lb mono.

As for the trout, same flies that usually work, work. Near Deere flies still whacking them. White midges and grey RS2's bumped on the bottom. No pics cause nothing was over 15 inches lately. Nothing has changed except for the size of the fish. A few monsters here and there but very rare at the moment. If you have a 3 weight, bring it. Walleye and Sandies I recommend a 5 weight.

Mt Fork White Bass

For the bait fisherman for trout: bump a real salmon egg on the bottom. Find the Cold Hole and fish your way upstream less than a 1/4 mile and bump the eggs on the bottom with 4 lb line and a small split shot. After you get your limit, please put the bait up and switch to lures to prevent gut hooking every fish after your limit. You may only have one fish over 20 inches out of your six.

Story time: One winter, I was fishing White Rock Creek for crappie. It was awful slow this day and I only had about a dozen on the stringer. I decided to leave and I threw about half a pound of minnows in a rapid just above a deep pool. I was walking away and heard something in the water. I looked behind me and saw crappie swarming and busting all around the minnows I just threw in. All keeper crappie.

Well, it happened again. We were night fishing in Broken Bow for Walleye a couple days ago. We were catching everything but the intended target. Trout, smallmouth, spotted bass, Sandy's. The time came where we gave up. I had bought 2 pounds of minnows thinking it was going to be a normal day and we were going to go through all 2 pounds within four hours. I just told him the story of the crappie in White Rock. I chunked all the minnows into the water and I was digging in the middle box to get the last two. Caught one of them threw it in the water and proceeded to try to catch the last one. The client said don't look in the water! And he walked off laughing like it would happen again. All of the sudden a giant Walleye started busting through the light trying to chase down these minnows. Soon as I saw that I said come down here and look at this. One of the guys came down to see you what I was looking at I thinking I was joking. His jaw dropped when he looked over the The boulders. This while I was just turning circles under water chasing down minnows but just couldn't get a hold of any. Meanwhile I'm still holding the last minnow. I run back to the truck and grab the rods we had already put up. Hop down all the boulders get to the spot grab the hook off the rod and it's not there. That was the rod we just broke off and called it a night. So I hobble back up all the boulders back to the truck and grab a rod with a hook. I about killed myself getting back to the spot,  hook a minnow and I cast in front of the Walleye. The massive fish swims right up to the minnow in the house it's eyeball no less than an inch from the middle. The middle freezes and starts to sink. The massive fish swims off into the dark. A couple seconds later he comes back, and I cast in front of him again, he comes up and stares at it again- minnow freezes. So this time I give it a little twitch and the fish inhails the minnow. I hand the rod to the client and yell - set the hook! And,  the fight was on and the fish stories begin.

 Monster Lower Mt. Fork Walleye



I would assume they will start stocking the wild hold overs ( big trout 3-8 lbs) soon, when it gets a bit colder. But again I've not looked into this, it's just an assumption.



( 17 plus inch fish are active at night mainly but we will still catch some monsters here and there during daylight hours. )

It's very hard for me to fish for trout right now, when the walleye are in the same waters- and they are bigger than most of the trout. If you hire me for trout, so be it then, we will go catch trout.

Facebook page : Carey A Thorn

$350 for 6 hours fishing for Walleye, Trout, Crappie, Smallmouth, And Spotted Bass at the Lower Mountain Fork River. Less than 3 hours from Dallas.

1-2 people

Lake Lavon Carp Turd Award:

( So, I'm on anchor and I'm the only boat around. A guy putters up to us really slow and watching us. We were casting at a point parallel to the bank, and casting about 20 feet away from the boat. He slid his dinghy into the "exact" spot we were casting at and threw his anchor over my clients fishing line. This dude, was about 15 feet away from my boat. Not one other boat in sight but he throws his anchor on my clients fishing line in 2 foot of water! After the wind got his boat and swung around, his prop was hitting the sand. You sir are a complete perfect green yellow and blue lump of perfectly floating carp turd. I pulled my anchors and went around to the other side 50 ft away from the chaos and proceeded to catch a fish every cast as they are all over the banks everywhere. Not just where I'm casting.

I actually looked around the area to see if there was any cameras playing a joke on me. I was convinced somebody was messing with me. There is just no way this is actually happing? I have seen stuff, but this was worse than any bank fishing incident. After I found out there were no cameras I let him know how much of an idiot he was. I had to cut about 25 feet of line off one of my rods because his Anchor line frayed the fishing line.)

 If you think you're getting a bunch of bites but you're just not hooking up, make your bait  smaller or drop down a size. You should start hooking up immediately after that. I don't know if I've said it yet or not, but I literally bite the Coho in half and glue it onto the jig head.

I'm also getting them on the 2 inch Berkeley swim baits that come prepackaged, don't forget to take off the hook Gaurd. The easiest way to take them off it's the twist them off don't pull them. You have to twist that plastic around the Barb. Bet y'all have faith with those before. Lol.

How many of you have tied one on and started fishing for a while getting bites but no fish? Forgetting to take the plastic off. If I get a good buddy in the boat I will tie one on and I won't take the plastic off. It gets pretty funny at times.

The barometric air pressure definitely goofs with them. I would suggest not going out the day after a major cold front if it happens. Otherwise you will notice they will slow down if the air pressure rises to fast or Falls too fast.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u201/tarponfly/White%20Bass/IMG_1044_zpsv7cdkfvl.jpg
Guided Fishing Trips w/ Carey Thorn- White Bass Reports, Tips, Tricks, Pics


Once the air pressure settles down they should start biting again. Even with goofed up air pressure you should still catch a fish every minute or two. When everything is stable -it's a fish every single cast or at least a bite. It's just plain silly how many fish are in that lake.

-10 years old. Casts, sets, reels the fish in, and takes them off the hook!

Look for shad flickering on the shoreline. Land you lure on top of the surfacing shad and I bet your rod bends with a big Sand Bass pulling on the end of it.

We have a pair of bald eagles now that I just started to notice about a week ago. I'm sure they have a nest somewhere on the lake. Amazing to see bald eagles only 10 minutes from Plano!  Picture was inserted above   

P.S. Polarized glasses are a must in this game. If you're cruising down the bank without glasses you are pretty much just wasting your time.

Or you might be fishing a bank with absolutely no fish whatsoever.



If you would've had your polarized glasses you probably would've figured it out faster. You can get polarized glasses in any sporting good stores or even a race track gas station has polarized glasses for like 10 bucks.

Bass Bite is crazy good too. They are right up with the Sandies.

(  Finn was so amazed, that when I would cast out and make a splash with my luer, all heck would break loose with a sandy thrashing about on the surface seconds later.  He would stay in there and wait till a fish was on and then he would start to do curled around me all excited that another fish was coming in. )

- i've been guiding a lot of kids through my career. One thing I have noticed, once your kid is ready to leave you must leave immediately. Otherwise your child will never come back out with you. If you force them to stay they will not like it. I have had some come out catch one fish and then say they're done. - trip over. Even if you're catching hybrids one after another and your kids ready to go, you better go.

Fishing has been absolutly amazing. With just a couple slower days. I have all three guides out whacking the fish daily, weather permitting.

Some days the lure bite is off the chain.  A couple days ago you could just cast a jig and Bob are out, as soon as you close the bell on the spinning rod a fish would come up and eat it without you even movie night.

 After the flood, I would recommend bringing a rope just in case you can't get it out due to the steep Clay Banks. They are going to be very wet and very slick with a new coating of silt on top of the Clay.

 Make sure you bring a cooler big enough to transport at least 25 of your own fish. If you have a buddy with you make sure you bring a cooler big enough to transport 50 fish in.  If you have a big group with you make sure you bring a giant cooler to transport your fish in.
