Got on the water this morning and fish were working in the hot water outlet. The water temp was 86 in there today. The bass worked shad till about 9am on top a small heddon tiny torpedo was my top water bait of choice today. I also skimmed a fluke jr on top to catch some of them also. I caught some Bass on a trap out in the main lake today. A Bass color trap was the ticket for me today.

Fished with my wife from 5:30PM till 8PM at the discharge. No other boats on the lake or trailers in the parking lot. Windy as HECK...like to blew us off the water. I used a Excallibur zellpop topwater and caught a nice 4 lber (19") and my wife caught one about the same size and it got off right at the boat. Then I used a firetiger colored Fat Free Shad CB and caught another about the same size but it got off before I could get it in the boat. Had a great time except for the constant wind. Put my anchor down to stop the drifting. Trying Georgetown today after work with her again. Trying to get her to catch a "large" fish so she will understand my obsession for the sport. haha

Hawggobbler-saw your truck, and noticed lots of boats in the discharge. Seems like those fish would be looking for cooler water! I fished just around the bend in the area just west of the power lines, and let the bad wind sweep me north. Caught what may have been my PB at Bastrop (camera batteries dead, and lost my scale) along the grass with a blue culprit T rigged(my guess 7-8 pounds).
I keep expected to see evidence of all these fish being caught previously by others given the heavy fishing pressure on that nice little lake. So far have not noticed any tears in mouth parts or embedded hooks. I'm thinking at some point LCRA needs to let us take some fish out of there so the middle sized ones can eat and get bigger. Catch and release may not be a great long term fomula for big bass growth.

Everyone needs to keep there small ones. I keep trying to get the Monday nighters to keep all their small ones, but I always here the comment of"if we keep all the small ones it will be hard to win a tourney". I have noticed fish with major swores in mouths. I even had a fish the other day that had a gill ripped out and dangling. Figured it should have been dead by now. People would start catching more overs if the number of small fish would come down.
