I have not been out there for 3 weeks but at that time I was pulling the bass out of water dept about 10 ft. My fish finder at water temp at about 51 degrees give or take a degree at that time in those areas. Course that is in my section (near the allen steam station launch).  

Where is your tournament at on Wylie?

Alright. Yeah it was before our 70-80 degree days. Keeping in mind we are getting over 4 days of rain and gloom, it may be back down a bit.

Good luck on you tourney, shot us some photos if you can.

I went out monday. I got a few fish very shallow. I think they were making there beds but thats hard to know as its hard to sight fish on wylie. But they were in less than four feet of water. But as M starr said most of the fish on in 10 ft +-. They are still transitioning to bedding and are pretty eager to eat any baitfish imitation. I would try a jerk bait on points, structure, and channels that are between deep and shallow water. I caught a 4 + lber on a jerbait fishing a point that was next to the river channel but gaurding a shallow cove. Good luck. Tell us how it goes.  :)

I wish i could give ya some advice although  the times i have gone to wiley this year have been to screw arround on my boat lol.

If you can find the Firestation (on the water their boat garrage) Go under the lil bridge you see back in that cove you can sight fish assuming you can run your boat in REAL shallow water 2-5 ft I seen a few arround the 5ft mark on the finder but didnt stop to fish.... Yeah i know someone kick me.,

I am heading out into Wylie today. I tell you it has been a frustrating lake for me overall.

I love it, there are a lot of premium places to fish, but I will be darned if it is not the most finicky lake. So far I have about a dozen good holes. They will be active for maybe 1-2 weeks, then nothing, maybe all year. So many places I have found there that are absolutely picture perfect Bass habitat that will yield nothing.

It is a good challenge though and after fishing Wylie, when I go to some of the other places I fish (like my mothers pond) I absolutely catch the crap out of everything.

Anyway, I am looking forward to today. I am guessing after 5 days of rain we are going to have some seriously clouded/muddy water. Got all sorts of vibrating, rattling, noise making stuff on deck in my box.

Let everyone know how it goes.
