    TSA Lake Whitney April 21

    April 21 The Texas Striper Association will be fishing Lake Whitney. I believe Uncle Gus Marina is going to be host this year. Lake Whitney is about 2 1/2 hours north. This is going to be a great Tournament and I am really looking forward to fishing this lake. Every year this lake seems to produce several double digit fish during the tournament . If you are looking for a realistic chance to catch a DD striper than this is the lake. Team Bustin' Loose will be there and reserved our Cabin at Uncle Gus today!!!

    Location: On the Brazos and Nolan rivers off Texas Highway 22, about 30 miles northwest of Waco
    Surface area: 23,500 acres
    Maximum depth: 108 feet
    Impounded: 1951



    [h=6]Tips & Tactics[/h]Lake Whitney currently provides some of the best striped bass fishing in the state, with March through May being the best months. Bank anglers are most successful fishing below sand or gravel bars on the Nolan and Brazos Rivers above the reservoir. In the main lake, anglers fish on windswept sandy beaches using shad or inland silverside ("ghost minnows") for bait. Boat anglers find stripers in the open reservoir feeding on large schools of shad or near submerged brush or timber. Topwater lures, jigs, and live bait are all effective at this time of year.



    [h=6]Angling Opportunities[/h]Lake Whitney is one of the prettiest lakes in Texas. This, combined with excellent public access and good fishing for many species, makes it a popular destination. It offers top-notch angling for striped bass and white bass, along with unique and diverse opportunities for smallmouth bass and trophy blue catfish. Texas anglers who have not fished Whitney are missing out on a great experience

    TSA COMES TO LAKE WHITNEY - APRIL 21,2012 - Texas Fishing Forum


    I know for a FACT that Lake Whitney is one of the best striper lakes in Texas. So I cannot wait to fish it and have the opportunity to catch several double digit stripers. I have caught 100's of stripers under 10lbs, but never really fished WHITNEY lake with good group of guys.

    Look forward to Saturday!


    PER TPWD:

    Just FYI, The current Junior record at TPWD is only 20inches long. This weekend a junior fisherman could easily beat it!
