ring fry

East Texas Weekend

Recommended Posts

Left SE Kansas Wed. afternoon to fish a few days.  

Thursday AM.  Fished Tyler State Park.  64 acres.  Wind was howling.  Only caught 3 fish.  Fish #1 was on a red trap in about 3' of water near the ramp about 15" long.  #2 was between there and the dam on a carolina rigged ring fry in about 12' of water and weighed about 3#.  Fish #3 was caught off the boat dock by the marina/store.  It hit a black n blue jig n pig in 9' of water and weighed 8.7#.

Thursday PM.  Went to Hawkins and caught 4.  All were about 2.5# on jig n pig.  And several pickerell on traps and spinner baits.

Friday.  Lake Fork  0 fish untill 4:00.  From four to 8:30 ended up with 17.  Two over 6#, 1 over 5# and most of the rest between 2.5 and 4#'s.  Every fish was caught in 4' or less water, on a black n blue fleck swimming senko with the tail dipped in chartruse spike it.  I was slow swimming it with a 3/16oz. weight.  In Williams and Little Mustang Creeks.

Saturday.  Lake Holbrook.  Caught 15 fish with the largest one being 5.04 all on swimming senko.  All fish were shallow and most were in or next to the reeds.

Sunday.  Fork.  Fished from 8:00 till 10:30 before the wind and storm blew me off the lake.  Caught 5 fish with the largest being 6.40#, again all shallow and all on swimming senko.

Got home to see the last 26 seconds of Davidson/KU game.  Overall a great trip for #'s and decent quality.
