Gotta go get new trailer tires today. Had the tread on a couple year old good year marathon come apart last week. Whipped around and busted the taillight, broke the fiberglass fender all up. Rigged it up and continued on to Gibbons Creek and flat out killed it. Totally worth it! But now I’m out of the game till I get all that fixed. You guys catch some for me!!!!

When I'm not chasing the bucket mouths my wife and I love to break out the ultralight tackle and hammer the gills. Conroe has a great eating population of bull bluegill. My favorite eating fish. We caught the mess out of them from our neighborhood marina.

That looks like a blast! I hope I can put her on some. We'll be launching at Stowaway Marina. I may try the bulkheads first. It'll be our first time looking for bluegill.

Lots of huge blue gill under 1097 bridge. You can tight line a worm and split shot against those columns and have a ball catching huge ones. Around 15 ft depth.

Dug worms today. Will be catching perch for bait later or in the morning. Them big ol kitty cats love them some big perch even after they been frozen in salt water. Also packaged up 4 gallons of my homemade catfish cocaine dough bait.
Should be good for the next 2 years. 2 five gallon buckets of chum working and getting stinky. Milo and cottonseed meal sours quickly in this heat. With all the rain this year catfishing in the shallows gonna be hot.

I know there's alot of standing timber north of 1097 and Scott's Ridge. I guess I need to try trolling and scanning the timber early for the white perch, and fall back to the bridge (shade) when the sun comes up? I'm good catching them in the spawn, but get skunked when they move back out.

I catch a lot of big crappie bass fishing with deep cranking baits this time of year. Most of the crappie guys I know catch their down south summer and north during the fall and spring. The south end is riddled with brush piles out deep. Use your electronics to locate them and look for fish, if you don't see them move on to the next and don't waste your time. Its hard to fish open water this time of year with all the stupid wake boats and big *** cruisers that don't belong on this lake. But it is what it is go early and get off early or go at night. If you want to learn the lake sometime give me a shout and you can ride with me or run behind with your gps .

Yes. We normally catch them till about 10 AM and then head under the bridge. I just drive by the pilings slow with down imaging and you can see the crappie suspended. Some columns will have a few and some will be loaded.

You should be golden in the morning. Yoi won't have all the knuckle head jet skis, and wake boats running around. Do you have a side scan or down imaging graph? They help tremendously locating those crappie. Good luck!

Mike D , you're correct on that , Ultralight tackle 4lb line. Best eating fish in the lake. I primarily bass fish "catch and release" but this time of year those big gills are a hoot and taste great.

Mike lives across the lake from me, he has helped me with an issue I had on one of my 9" mega birds. There is also a kid that launches in the neighborhood that actually went and took classes on Humminbird and Lowrance. Kids name is Mason Roach , he knows his electronics .

Yeah that's where I was fishing Scott's ridge. I love trying to find them. I found a lot of them but had a hard time getting them to bite. I bet if I had minnows it would have been a different story.

Mike is a good guy for sure. He didn't just set it up, but wouldn't get off the water until I showed him I knew how to use it. I'm no master at it, but I'd be lost without his knowledge.

My little fishing buddy this morning while I was catch perch for bait. Yellow crowned night heron. A bit out of its normal range this far north and west. Didn't seem afraid of me at all. It flew over by me within 15 ft and started spearing minnows.
