Toledo bend in early November

11 posts in this topic

Starting to look like I will be making a trip to Toledo bend the week of the 3rd-5th of November. What can I expect while there, any technique that shines that time of the year.

Right now the lake is fishing different that in past years, previously we would be in 15-20', now it's 20-30'.

 

3 more months from now who knows!

 

I would expect spinnerbaits, traps, & crankbaits to be high on the list.

Thanks Catt. I know it's a little ways away, kayak bass fishing is having the 100 challenge there in November for the top 100 challenge series finishers. It looks like I will be making the cut for the event as I'm in 35th of the 100 plus they are taking top finisher from each state and I'm number 1 there by a land slide for NY. 

 

Its a 22hr drive for me with a 1 in 100 chance at coming home with $10,000 so I'm looking at old reports for that time frame now and at navionics trying to plan.

It's based out of Many, LA, with HQ at Cypress Bend Park. I believe we can launch anywhere on the lake with public access on either side Texas or Louisiana.

Being you're a kayak fishermen & a tournament fishermen at that, I know you're aware of the effects weather can have on you're game plan.

 

The "average", " normal ", or " usual" weather pattern for Halloween is frontal conditions. So far this year has been above normal rainfall! Pack your rain gear!

The back of Sandy has been and will be perfect that time of year for a kayak.

You're like me, I don't generally look for "kayak only" spots.  I look for big fish spots, and deal with whatever I have to when I'm in the kayak.

Quite gallent but I don't think ya wanna be on the main lake in a Yak!

 

My suggestion keep, eye on the "Toledo Bend" thread & make your location selection about 2-3 weeks out.

After diver duck hunting out of it in January on Lake Ontario and hemlock with 45mph north winds I think I've been in some of the worst conditions a kayaker would want. Oh and on Kentucky lake when a tornado came threw last year that was fun.
