Had a very entertaining day on Stillhouse today catching 30-40 schoolies. I caught the majority of mine on a chome tiny torpedo worked very, very fast with quick, short twitches. Sometimes I could even get a blow up when they weren't actually actively schooling. All were caught in 10-25 feet of water.

My partner caught most of his on a Tiny Fluke on a 1/8 ounce jighead. He probably caught more, but I had more fun with the torpedo. :D

We stayed on fish all day until 3:00pm when the wind shifted from the East. All bass were 1 to 2 pounds. Some were very fat, but some were very skinny as well. Water was 85 degrees and clear.

Look for the big cranes setting on stumps and gar rolling on top and you'll find the schoolies. The cranes and gar are picking off dead or injured shad. They ain't stupid! :eek:

Most of them were border line. Much smaller and thinner than the schoolie footballs of Bastrop and Fayette. But the water is so clear that sometimes you could actually see them coming up in groups of 5-6 fish. I couldn't work that torpedo too fast. We had a good wind all day which I'm sure produced some good current.

Here's a link to the Tiny Fluke. He used Smokin Shad I believe.

Thats a really cool and informative report. Thanks for sharing. Glad you had an awesome time. That had to be some good fun - having all of those buggers, little or not, smash your topwater. I totally wanted to get out today in that rain, but I just didn't have the time. Perhaps tomorrow! Hmmmmm - I NEED TO GO FISHING! :)
