Fished out there Saturday afternoon / night. Caught some small bass on shaky heads and 2 crappie on jigs. All were released. What color soft plastics do you folks have luck with out there?

Thanks

The only color plastic I ever really through out there is watermelon(dark green). For the past few months it's I've been fishing them on Carolina rigs and more recently drop shots along grass edges.

2212trinity - are you using clear line? I have been trying bright green mono since the water has that greenish color. Hopefully as it warms up I can tell a difference.

I have been using light floro on most of my spinning reels, heavy greenish line on my Calcuttas for Carolina rigging, and clear monofilament on my bait casters.

Wow! A 10-pounder out of a 180 acre lake! That lake is even smaller than Raven. I hope your lake does not get inundated with fishermen looking for their own trophy.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Good thing this lake is consistently a pretty tough fish. There are some pigs in there, but I doubt the majority will want to put in the time to try and catch them. It's not like LA or TL where you can pull up toads every trip.

Congrats and thanks for posting!

Last week, I bought a little boat for $200 with Lake Pflugerville in mind. It came with a trolling motor but no battery. The wife says I can get a battery with our tax refund check that we'll get in March.

The boat came with two telescopic paddles. After seeing your fish, I don't know that I can wait for a battery!

Thanks for the report. Sharing the report and releasing the fish shows you are very honorable. You have my vote for Angler of the Year!

It's best to check your scale in the meat department. I would trust the accuracy of the butcher more than assuming that there was exactly 4 lbs of sugar in a bag.

My Avatar pic is from that lake about 3 years ago. I edited it so you could not see where it was caught and have been fishing there the past few years quietly but I guess the word is out now. good fish.
