LAKE DUNLAP TX – On a lake that had been fishing very well just days prior, changed drastically and was very stingy for most of the 76 anglers that fished today. Daniel Kurtz and Todd Ivins drew boat 39 and were the 2nd to last boat out, and to top it off neither had been on the lake in several months but in spite of the odds the team was able to figure them out. They fished the entire length of the lake with their first keeper a nice 5 pound fish coming near the dam on their 3rd cast. From there the team ran several areas working themselves back up lake and filled their limit on a variety of baits. On their last cast of the night, clear on the opposite end of the lake to which they started, they made their final cull and book ended their night with another 5 pound fish. With the cull they were able to add 3 pounds to their total to get them over the 16 pound mark and add an eight pound cushion between them and 2nd place.

2nd place went to last week winners on Canyon Lake, Malcolm Kitchen and Jonathan Haag. Like Kurtz and Ivins, they too drew a very high number (boat 37) and decided to just go fishing. Their evening started out with a bang with 3 solid fish just minutes after the release of the boats on a dock not far from registration. After their 3rd fish, all of which were solid keepers, the team mentioned they had mumbled “man, it’s on” but later said they realized, “man, it’s off”. After their first 3 fish, they did not catch another keeper. The team flipped docks with soft plastics to catch their fish.

Bass had been spawning mid lake and were locked on beds as late as Tuesday believe it or not, but have definitely transitioned into a tough post spawn pattern. Smaller fish are still more than willing to bite shakey heads and senkos, and the later the night, the better the bite as many anglers mentioned they just started catching fish when it was time to head back in.
