Hats off to you guys that get out there and fish on days like today. Cold doesn't bother me as much as a north wind. You catch your fish on a jig?

Anybody fished Somerville lately? Heading out there Wednesday afternoon with not much more of a game plan than to start deep and work our way up until we find something. Will be my first trip of the year.

It can fish pretty dang good at times. I dont get to fish it near as much as I would like, but im hoping to change that this year.

Let me ask, if you dont mind, what was going to be your game plan? Just high level, dont want your honey holes.

Well, since not having been there in so long i was going to hammer the areas that on my bird mapping look to be staging areas. Lipless crank bait and squarebills. If that didnt produce it would be back out to the road beds with football jig or carolina rig.

I dont think I pay the road beds near enough attention. I typically fish rocks or grass. This time of year I was looking at the big rock island fishing deep. If that failed I was going to head to staging areas and start deep and work my way up. Never thought about road beds at all.

living on lake conroe i have taken a liking to fishing deeper structure. I know Somerville has some good road beds near spawning creeks and pockets.

I know of one or two. Although im sure there are a lot more. I think Wednesday im going to branch out of my comfort area and go fish different structures across the lake. Im thinking with the high in the upper 60’s Wednesday the fish should be more active.

That is insane. Hopefully it doesnt draw too much attention and bring the fishing right back down due to added pressure.

Too late, guys are saying the ramps are already packed, he has a ton of followers on social media. IMO its pretty sorry he won't reveal the public lakes in oklahoma he catches giants at but out of state he shows all. He is fishing with Jimmy Houston today there.

Are they trying to kill that lake? I remember that one year Alan Henry kicked out multiple sharelunkers, it got so much pressure the fishing became terrible. Now mostly when someone local catches one there they just take a picture and put it back quietly.

Same thing happened to Ivie about 10 years ago. It was HOT! lunkers coming out all the time. I caught my biggest on Ivie in 2012. 11.71 lbs. It was really slow after that. I knew once that lake got some decent water it would start pumping out giants again.

Its happened bunches of places, same deal with Amistad and Falcon after Bassmaster tournment shows in 2006 and 2008. The weather ended up hot and the toads they left floating dead at Falcon that year was heartbreaking. They changed much of the weigh in procedure and bag line after that.

I'm determined to get back on the water this year. If I don't, I need to sell my boat. $90 a month to store something I don't use is ridiculous.

Ivie was probably the best lake in texas from 1998- 2011. Then it got really low and had bad golden algae outbreaks as well . In 2000 I caught a 8.96 and a 9.02 in a big bass tournament there that paid top 30 places I got 31-32nd place and won one hour with the 8.96 and got third in the hour with the 9.02 .

Choke, Amistad and Falcon all were better at times during that period, Falcon has head and shoulders above any lake in the country during one time period.

BASS killed tons of fish on rayburn last summer. Hundreds dead by the weigh in location.

Still pumping out hawgs!

Now that we have a place at PK, I’m getting serious about it again. Caught one just over 10 and broke two off last fall.

Fishing was not good. Of course we didnt sit on any one structure for extended periods. Was more to get out and run the boat a bit. We did cast probably 50 times and no bites. Fished from 3’-14’ of water. Mainly around rocks. The deep brush I know of had crappie guys on it and I didnt see them catching much either.
