ALAMO LAKE: Well folks, after being on the road so much and dealing with some personal stuff in my life I'm determined to try to get some information out to you.
Case and point: it's 2 a.m. as I'm writing this. This is hot off the press as of a few hours ago. Junior and I went out tonight from 4ish in the afternoon till dark. We did really well throwing baby brush hogs. We had better luck throwing green and red flake.
We started up by the dam and let the wind blow us down to the ramp/dock area. We boated a total of eight bass, one redear, and two catfish. The bass seemed to be suspended in about 10 feet of water and hit everything on the drop. I think the biggest fish we boated was around 4 pounds. since Junior has not fished with me in more than a year ,needless to say, he had problems with his gear.
After a year of your reels sitting in a closet you might want to add a little gear oil and at the very least change your line. As he continued working out a birds nest I continued to boat bass. This in turn honked him off, which in turn cheered me up. I had a blast and he went home frustrated.
Were going back out tomorrow (Tuesday, July 7), so we will see if he changes out his line. Anyway, fishing is pretty good right now. I have some friends who are doing well with the nighttime crappie bite up by the dam.
They're using crappie lights and jigging minnows. If you're coming out plan on bringing your own minnows with you. I'm hoping to have some delivered by the end of the week. We're still using the old rental boat area to launch. It works great and we have the dock there.
I think the lake level is at 1090ish with releases of 25cfs. remember to bring sun block and stay hydrated. Well that's it for this week. Everything is blur so I'm counting on Nick to run this through a spell well. Hopefully will have more next week.
