October 14, 2010

Fishing conditions are providing lots of excitement on Lake Amistad over the last couple weeks.  The cool front that will move through today and last through the weekend will provide some additional fish activity and movement.  The water level is staying stable at approximately 2 feet above conservation pool and the water temperatures are in the mid 70’s.  Some very nice fish have been caught this past week by Lake Amistad anglers.  One very large fish that was caught fell just short of the 13 lb ShareLunker bench mark as it weighed in slightly over 12 lbs.  The best time to hit the lake has been in the early mornings for some topwater action.

Current Patterns - 

      Shallow:  Fishing in the backs of the major creeks around the hydrilla and salt cedars are the most productive areas for numbers of fish.  These fish tend to be on the smaller side but keep the anglers interested because the bites are plentiful.  Look for the hydrilla lines and concentrate on the drains in the middle of the creeks parallel to the hydrilla.  The pond weed grass also is also holding good concentrations of shallow fish.  Spinnerbaits, flukes and lightly weighted worms are productive around ‘holes’ or’ lanes’ in the grass.  The frog bite is still reliable for catching some bigger fish although you will not get as many strikes that the other techniques are providing.

      Mid-Depth:  The areas that have hydrilla in the 15-25 foot zone can produce some fish but it seems a majority of the fish are avoiding this depth zone.  I still catch some fish with ‘punching’ methods in the hydrilla and texas rigging the hydrilla edges.

      Deep:  It was reported through the Angler’s Lodge Tackle Shop on Hwy 90W that the big 12 lber this week came out of deep water on a swimbait.  Congrats to the angler that managed to haul in that monster… what a fish!  Carolina rigging in 30-40 foot continues to be productive as well as texas rigs and football jigs. Anglers should position their boats around the shallow humps with adjacent deep water and concentrate on keeping you bait near the bottom on the break lines to deep water.

See you on the Lake,
