CANYON LAKE, TX – Despite the winning weights, the fishing on Canyon Lake is heating up. It was also a big change from previous weeks as the bite heated up as the sun went down. Several quality fish were brought to the scales, and several anglers had their hearts broken by losing unexpected “big” fish including tonight’s winners. For the 3rd week in a row, Pat Amick & Ryan Ash finished in the money, but this time, brought home the win and the $890. However; it was the first time this season the team didn’t bring in a limit but it didn’t matter as the team had 3 solid fish for 12.53 pounds. Pat and Ryan had a go big or go home approach (we guess) and caught all their fish on big 10 inch worms on points. They mentioned they didn’t have a single fish before dark and caught their biggest fish just before weigh in. Drawing boat # 57 may have been a blessing, as Pat and Ryan had til 10:20pm to weigh in.

2nd place went to Chuck Ware and Ross Wright and they too didn’t need a limit to get paid. The team fell just short of the win by just a couple of ounces but still brought home a total of $800 with their 2nd place finish and Big Bass prize. The team mentioned that when the sun went down so did their hopes, and they discussed giving in and heading to Baja BBQ Shack for BBQ and burgers. Just as they go to call it quits, Ross gets the tick, sets the hook and revives the team by catching the big bass of the tournament and biggest bass of the year with the 8.15 pound beast. Catching fish in the dark had been a miraculous feat, if not a phenomenon on Canyon in previous weeks, but tonight the team grind through and caught all four of their keepers in the dark throwing drop shots,and shakey heads around brush and points.

3rd place went to Eddie Mckinnis fishing solo. Eddie got a limit throwing watermelon red flukes on c-rigs in 10-12 ft of water and believe it or not, most of his fish came after dark as well.

Small fish are still very much alive and easy to catch on most of the lake, especially around the flooded brush and shallow rock. Spinnerbaits, rattle traps, and small swimbaits are the current top producers with the top water bite still yet to turn on.

Congrats to all those that caught a check. With this amount of boats and quality of anglers, finishing in the money is no easy feat.
See you next week.
