Weather - Partly Cloudy
Wind - 10 to 15 all day
Water Temp - 64 @ the Bluffs, 68 @ Qinland, 70 @ City Park, 78 in Bull Creek, 74 @ Walsh Ramp
Water Appearance - Stained green, visibility to 5', becoming turbid in the pm due to recreational boating

Partner and I fished from 8 'til 7 today, with a 2-hr mid-day break at The County Line for lunch.  We fished real hard for 20 or so fish.  Ended up with 6 keepers, best 5 going 10 lbs.


Got on the water a little late due to late night downtown Friday night.  Best bite came between 11:30 and 12:30 at the docks near Ski Shores on Wacky Worm.  We caught 'em good on Watermelon Green Senko and 6" Zoom Trick Worm.  Saw several large fish (8lbs +) cruising today, but couldn't get 'em to bite.

We caught most of our fish in and around docks.  The "grass" bite was not as productive as yesterday.  Shakey-head was shakey.  Tried the frog over grass; no luck.  Tx-rig Mutant was no good either.  No luck with the fluke over the grass.  

We struggled in the afternoon.  I believe this was due to the amount of boat traffic on the lake.  Saw some real idiots out there riding close to the banks, docks, US, and even full plane in <3 FOW.  There are a lot of inexperienced boaters out there; beware!

Only saw a few other bass boats today.  

Take care,

Wurm

With catches like that u should fish the wed. tourneys.  You could make some $$$$.  

...kinda ironic how the best bite was on a "wacky" setup for you
I've fished several TTZ Weds Nighters in the past and had a blast.  Hard for me to make it out right now with work schedule and two in diapers at the house.  I will be back, though!

I always try other techniques, especially when conditions match them; however, I have my best luck with the WW.  Not only is it my confidence bait, but it's a lazy bait, enabling me to pop a top, kill a sandwich, and blab about how crappy the Astros, Economy, Cowboy's Draft, etc...... are going these days.  Just more relaxing for me I guess.  Sure would have been nice to pull something out of the grass with the Spro Frog though :-/

Nice report Wurm...you guys always seem to keep the effort up and find the fish.

If I don't get bit in 10 minutes on LA, I go back to cursing the lake and taking my frustrations out on the beer cooler :-X

Nice report Wurm. Sounds like a great day on the water with 20 fish. Too bad about the idiots. Seems like there's more every time I go fishing, and I only fish during the week.
