Trip Notes: Went out to for a evening session today. Started off working shaky heads off the reeds and ended up with a nice 6.3 lb lmb plus a couple of other small ones. I noticed an explosion of topwater action out in the open water and decided to go get some Shad and try my luck. Graphed several areas of fish and dropped anchor... nada. Moved over to the gravel pit and graphed more fish still nada. Decided to throw some more plastics along the reeds just before dark... not even a hit. Nice little evening session even though the bite was a little slow. Catching and releasing that 6 lb lmb made the trip!

I remember better days on Decker when there was lots of hydrilla matted at the surface.  They must be putting in chemicals in the water.

I was there last Tuesday 04/06, fished 05:30 pm to 08:00 pm, very windy.  We were fishing for bass, however I ended up with 6 hybrids and one 4-pound catfish, and my friend caught 3 hybrids.  All fish were caught on spinnerbait on the discharge side of the lake.

The last time out, the water was over the loading dock. Also, I could not find any hydrilla or grass out in the main lake to fish. I just started hitting the windy shorelines with reeds...

Right now you can catch bass on Decker, using a white/Chart spinnerbait or Senko Bubblegum Senkos (Weightless) thrown at base of reeds. Along the windy shorelines. Discharge side. You have to hit the reeds, let the lure fall and slowly reel up. They hit it immediately once it hits the water, normally.

My $0.02.
