CANYON LAKE, TX – 84 anglers were again greeted with stiff winds as the 6th event of the season got under way.
Making frieds with the wind was Lee Beuershausen and Charles Whited as they went big and won big to get thier 2nd win of the season. The team set a new weight record, weighing in 19.51 pounds which is the largest bag to be weighed in on a Thursday Nighters on Canyon Lake. With the win they also cashed in on the Skeeter Real Money Bonus that got them an extra $3000, won BIG BASS with a 6.89 pounder to win another $235, and to top if off won the BOERNE MARINE BONUS for the trifecta. All in all the team won nearly $4000 for the second time this season. The team said they fished 3 spots all night in the mid and lower sections of the lake. Throwing “power worms” and swimbaits in 10-20′ of water around isolated cover got them just five keepers all night with the big fish coming right at dark and a solid 2 and half pound small mouth late in the evening to fill out their limit.

2nd place saw some new faces as Kenneth Wick fishing his 4th ever Thursday Nighter and Chris Newberg his 11th event earned their first Thursday Nighters check with 4 solid fish that tipped the scales at just over 12 pounds. The team drew boat #40 and were one of the last to leave but needed just a little more time to get their 5th fish. They also caught their fish on “power baits” fishing 10-12′ of water and caught all their fish before dark in the first hour of the tournament. They team won $410 for their great finish.

Finishing in 3rd place and earning their second payday in 2017 was Chuck Ware and Ross Wright. They brought in 9.78 pounds that earned them $230. They also got a late number drawing boat 51 but it didnt seem to matter. The team fished the mid lake area and mentioned that they had a limit in the first hour and culled by ounces several times through out the night. They mentioned “10” power worms” (which must have been rigged on a drop shot) was their bait of choice. The team focused on hard woods around points and creek mouths.

There were three fish over 6 pounds weighed in, and a few solid fish in the 4-5lb range. The smallmouth bite that dominated last week has slowed tremendously as there was only a handful weighed in. Hardwoods on points were holding several fish albeit on the smaller side, but they were eating just about anything that had a blade on it, or a soft creature style bait. Several small fish are also still lurking in the flooded stickups near deep water. Water temps in the mid 70’s and water clarity a bit off due to all the wind has hindered the topwater bite so far on Thursday nights.
