I swear, this lake is a harsh mistress.

We started in hope of catching a few stripers and/or whites.  Having no luck, we tryed LMB fishing.  Little luck there so we tryed crappie fishing.

We continued to mix it up all day (8:30am - 3pm).

Landed one decent LMB all day.  May not seem like much to some of you tournament fishermen, but I'm a novice and it was my PB on Buch.  I'm pretty dang proud!





Caught at Cedar Point on a 7" wtrmln/pumpkinseed senko; T-rigged; 3 1/2 lbs.; 18 1/4".

Admired her and released her (kinda like my love life).

good luck!

Buchanan may be like a harsh mistress, but she won't complain when you drink beer and piss all over, won't blow a gasket when you indulge in another lake every now again, and will still put out even when cold. Wouldn't kick her outta bed for eating crackers.

Nice Buch bass! Good work releasing her to get even bigger.

Last time I went fishing on buchanan the only bass we caught was an accidental two pounder in the throw net in silver creek. Maybe try around that peninsula surrounding the blackrock park, caught many stripers there day or night in different weather less the hot months, good luck and good catch

Now that's funny, right there! I don't care who ya are. ~ Larry the cable guy.

Yep, she may be harsh, but I still luv her/Buch!

"Cedar Point?"

Hard to describe in words. It's north (upstream) from the old Hi-Line. A free, LCRA, primative camping site and launch. There's a map in the "Striper/White" fishing report entitled "Buchanan 1/17/11."

-----

We tryed the mouth of Silver Creek, lots of fish on the graph, but no bites. However, I sincerely appreciate the advice. Talked to some guys that said they'd caught a 5 pounder jigging a chatterbait (never heard of that) the next cove upstream from silver creek.

------

The gentleman's right about Buch getting dangerous quickly. I spent a lot of time on Buch as a kid (young man), but I was mainly into water skiing back then. Anyway, we were blind sided by a southern storm while we were in Morgan creek (Bee Bluff, some of ya'll know of it). We confronted 4-5' swells trying to get back to camp at the spillway (back when that was free too). Ended up porting and getting a ride from a kind home owner. Never forgot it. I ALWAYS watch the weather on Buch.

Thanks for the Kudos, everyone!

good luck!

Mike,
Thanks for the word of warning. When I fish Buch, the kayak stays home. I fish out of a 19' CC bay boat.... however 6' rollers does not sound like good times on the water...

man yall dont be badmouthin my favorite lake :) you were in a good spot just keep chunkin. iv always done realy well at buchanan theres always plenty of bass shallow year round just pay close attention to depth and structure when you catch one, they are pretty easy to pattern. this time of year a crawfish colored crankbait fished 10ft or less will get you bit every time. fat free fingerlings in rootbeer chartruse are my fav for the upper end.
