    Striped/Hybrid/White Bass Reports
    When out in my dingy at 5pm for some twilight fishing, since there was hardly any wind. Pitched worms into the sticks for a while, got nothing. I did hear bass way back in the reeds jumping. For some reason they seemed to be laying deep in thick cover. There were some other boats doing the same...
  2. Decker Lake 10/18/2016

    Black Bass Fishing Reports
    Got on the lake at around 7:30am. It was incredibly windy and difficult to fish all day. We started out at the discharge with with no luck using a Booyah Pad Crasher. We ended up going to the cove across from the discharge because it was somewhat out of the wind. The Pad Crasher wasn't...
  3. Decker 7/30... Slow, but satisfying

    Black Bass Fishing Reports
    My buddy recently got an old john boat with a decent motor on it so we decided to wake up at 4:30 and head out to Decker. Ended up getting on the water as the sun rose and hit some of our favorite spots on the North side with frogs. We got a few blowups but couldn't set the hook with the frogs...
  4. Lady Bird vs Decker

    Tips and Techniques
    I was looking to do some kayak fishing this weekend and was going to either try out lady bird or Decker (Walter E. Long). Could someone offer me some advice about which would be a better option right now to fish? Also. Are there any identifiable spots on either lake to do some bed/sight fishing...

    Black Bass Fishing Reports
    Of course, the one day me and my dad can go fishing, our go to lake is closed. We haven't been on lake Travis in a year or so, are there even any open ramps? Thanks
  7. Decker Lake Tomorrow Morning (9/29)

    Bank Fishing Reports
    Here I am again, asking for last minute advice, the night before I plan on going fishing. I've lurked a little and saw that there was some luck with stripes and whites, but all trolling from boats. Has anyone had any recent luck in the hydrilla and reeds near the launch ramp? Is the fishing...
  8. Decker 8/12

    Striped/Hybrid/White Bass Reports
    We hit the water at 7am fished until 10:30. Caught a dozen LMBs, 5 whites, 1 drum, and 3 Hybrids. Trolling crank spoon combos. Water temp. 94. For over 2 hours the fish were chasing the shad to the top all around us. Was pretty exciting seeing all the action. The LMBs are schooling as we...
  9. Jug fishing rules - colors & legality on lakes..

    Miscellaneous Info
    I've heard that only white jugs are allowed on Texas lakes, is that correct? I have some old orange "juggers" from 2003 that I still would like to use. Also, is it legal to set jugs on Decker Lake aka Walter E. Long? Just curious if a city lake has its own rules. Thanks in advance! CB
  10. We like to fish, not boat

    Black Bass Fishing Reports
    Gotta be honest here... my boyfriend and I have faithfully relied on Austin Bass Fishing for months now to get the inside scoop on where the fish were or weren't biting, and when it wasn't too scorching hot or tornado-style windy to get a decent tug on your line. What we have not done yet is...
