Dang I was gonna try in back of lanan Saturday but maybe I should try another place

 

Yesterday just seemed like a tough day so I wouldn't give up just yet.  There is plenty of good offshore stuff in lanan too if that creek doesn't produce.

I know it would make me feel better 😉

Who has the water temp readings from today?

 

To too back check what my fishfinder is telling me.

 

On the main water of San Miguel I'm getting 54.2 back of the coves I went too this morning I'm getting 61.4 to 62.3 degrees.

 

Think my finder isn't reading correctly.

@A5BLASTER sounds close to what I'm hearing, it depends on where.

It seemed right too me, from what I'm use too seeing this time of year but never hurts too double check it.

 

As always the back end of San Miguel is where I play the most.

Oh no I can fish it just fine with out a temp gauge.

 

But with the junky weather and the attic blast coming my old bones just ain't feeling it right now.

 

Time for a break till later in the week when the weather gets better and hopefully stabilize just a bit.

 

My rebuilt knee just can't take this weather.

My dad saw 57* yesterday so you are probably not far off.  He was there for 3 days and did not get one bite.  Hopefully we can next weekend in my boat and find them off of the bank.

We fished today. Spent 80% of the time trying to get around the lake in the “light and variable” winds🙄 and graphing. Three foot rollers out there today. Found plenty of fish, they just didn’t want to play.  Caught 12 today in 12-18’.

I've been lurking here long enough to feel like I know some of you personally so I figure it's time to make an introduction.

 

My wife and I live in Lumberton and previously spent our weekends beaching it on the Bolivar Peninsula.  We enjoyed the beach but dealt with significant hurricane damage from Rita in '05 and Humbero on 09.13.07.  One year to the day later (and six months after completing renovations from Humberto), Hurricane Ike hit us on 09.13.08 and left us with nothing more than a few chunks concrete slab. 

 

Ike was a blessing in disguise as we finally realized the Good Lord was gently nudging us to the lake!  It took a while to recover but we were blessed to finally find a lakefront paradise on Housen back in 2015.  Haven't even thought about the beach since and now spend almost every Friday - Sunday on TB.

 

Having entered the sport in 2015, I'm a novice angler (at best).  My personal best was just over seven pounds in mid-Housen; haven't come close to that since!  I spend most of my time on TB and launch from a little private community ramp.  We make occasional trips to Rayburn and spent seven perfect fishing days on Lake Amistad last year.

 

That's about it.  Just wanted to say hey and more importantly, to finally take a minute to thank all of you regulars that share your expertise on this forum.  I've learned a great deal about TB and about bass fishing in general from y'all!

 

If you see an old, fat, grey-haired guy mid-lake in a red/white Nitro Z20 struggling to tie a knot, good chance that would be me so come say hi...  :fishing2:

 

Y'all have a Blessed Weekend!

@Greg35 How y'all are?

 

Welcome aboard!

 

Spent many a day running the beaches of the Bolivar Peninsula.

 

I live on the Louisiana Gulf Coast & can testify to the damage caused by Rita & Ike.

 

Looking forward to your fishing reports!

OK everyone, trying to determine if this is a spot. Dorsal fin is connected, jaw line does not pass the back of eye, but no tongue patch. Your thoughts?

Did it have the small black stripes across its belly?

The only sure fire way to tell a spot from a largemouth is by the jaw line. If the jaw line didn’t extend past the eye, it is a spot.  That is how wildlife and fisheries check them.  I’ve caught many spots with no patch on their tongue.

Here is the jaw line, called Game Warden, waiting on call back.
