CANYON LAKE, TX – A lake that had reportedly been fishing great for the last 10 days definitely lived up to the hype on this record breaking evening. 46 teams came out to witness a new heavy stringer record and new big bass record for our Canyon events. Taking first and weighing in 17.80 pounds for the most total weight ever weighed in on Canyon in a Thursday Nighter was the team of Charles Whited and Bill Polkinghorn. Charles and Bill said the fishing was fast and furious. “We had a limit for 10-11 pounds pretty quick on power worms up shallow. Then just before dark we came into a school of solid fish and were able to cull out our entire limit.” The team mentioned they caught close to 30 keepers and culled close to fifteen fish in the 3 pound range. Even though they set a new total weight record their weight could have been more. “We were throwing crankbaits and we both hooked up at the same time. Bills fish took off to the right and mine to the left and our lines crossed and got tangled. We saw our biggest fish of the night come up and then the lines cut each other and snapped.” Crankbaits, swimbaits, tx- rigged worms, and topwaters were the weapons of choice, but the team said they didn’t think it really mattered. With their first place finish the team took home $730.

Our 2nd place team of Chris Davis and Eddie Bowers also set a record with the biggest bass ever weighed in on Canyon during a Thursday Nighter that went 9.08 pounds. Their night also started out with a bang as they caught the big fish on their 2nd cast of the evening. Asked what they caught it on, Eddie said “in a willow”, but we were able to get more out of him. Eddie said he flipped a tx-rigged soft plastic into a willow tree sitting 3-5’ of water. With no net in the boat, he worked the fish around the boat a couple of times before they were able to lip it. The team finished out the night with 3 more fish for a solid bag of 14.75 pounds. With their 2nd place finish and Big Bass they took home $690 for their efforts.

3rd place went to the current AOY leaders Justin Hummel and Leonard Debraska. As consistent as any team has been this year, the team again weighed in a solid limit for almost 12 pounds to extend their lead in the AOY Standings. Fishing mostly shallow water and flipping plastics in rock and brush was the key for this team. With their 3rd place finish they took home $240, and with a Boerne Marine receipt they also took home a custom Skeeter TFO rod.

With 10 limits weighed in and many more teams with 4 fish, the fishing on Canyon is as good as it has been since mid February for numbers. The fish are schooling on points in 30+ foot of water and anglers are able to catch as many as they want using topwaters. White bass and striper area also mixed in with the black bass, but it all comes down to finding the right schools with the quality fish.
