CANYON LAKE, TX – Rapidly fluctuating lake levels must play a role in the improved fishing at Canyon as Charles Whited and Ty Brumley break the heaviest 5 stringer record which was previously set at the last Thursday Nighter on Canyon.  Charles and Ty (whom was fishing his first ever tournament) weighed in an impressive 18.70 pound bag with a 7.28 pound big bass.  The team got things going throwing spinnerbaits and crankbaits in the newly flooded vegetation.  They targeted fish behind the stick ups in shallow water ranging from 2 – 5’.   Ty caught the big fish on a spinnerbait early, and the team mentioned the fishing was pretty steady for them as they caught 12 keepers before the lighting started at 9:00pm which sent the team to the dock early with several other teams.  The team took home $830 with their first place finish and Big Bass bonus.

2nd place went to Eddie Mckinnis.  His night started out slow, but for him once the lightning started so did the catching.  Eddie explained that he was headed back to weigh in just before dark with the lightning still off in a distance when he decided to hit a point on the way back to weigh in.  He fired out his C-rig and drug it across the point in 9-12’ of water and immediately got bit.  Eddie said the bite was subtle, “I could barely feel the fish.  I’d drag it and hit a rock, then let it sit and then notice my line moving.”  Eddie mentioned he caught all 4 of his fish from the exact same spot on the point, but just couldn’t get #5 to bite before the lightning go to close and sent him in.

3rd place went to Daniel Rodriguez and David Jara.  We didn’t get an interview from them, but can only assume they caught their fish on jigs, and caught their last fish to fill their limit on their last cast as usual.

4th place went to Ryan Ash and Pat Amick who were fishing their first Thursday NIghter together, and Pats first Thursday Nighter of 2016.  They said the key for them was shakey heads in 6-10’ of water.  Their bag was a nice mixture of smallmouth and black bass.  The team mentioned catching several fish, just didn’t get the big bite.

There were several solid fish weighed in tonight, and despite only 5 limits being weighed, there was a lot of fish caught.  Fishing has definitely improved and the fish are as healthy as we have ever seen on Canyon.  The lake is still up several feet and dropping fast but some ramps remain closed.    Topwaters shallow as well as spinnerbaits and crankbaits are catching numbers and size.  Fishing deep with soft plastics seemed to catch the smaller fish.
