CANYON LAKE, TX –If you’ve read the previous Thursday Nighter re-caps, this may sound a little redundant, but the wind blew again last night and it blew hard. 50 teams and 96 anglers were greeted with sustained winds of 15-20mph and gusts up near 28mph and it didn’t let up all night. Also not letting up is Charles Whited’s terror on the rest of the field. Charles Whited teamed up with Ty Brumley to weigh in 13.17 pounds good enough for the win and took home $810. This was Charles 6th win of the season and Ty’s first win. The team mentioned they had to hit several areas to get their limit focusing on depths less than 12’. The team caught most of their fish on trick worms and dropshots around brush. The team took home $810 with their first place finish. So far in 2017 with 10 events now in the books, Charles has won over $12,000 with the Skeeter Real Money bonus included. That’s a pretty good pay day on $40 entries.

2nd place went to our 2016 Anglers of the Year, Justin Hummel and Leonard DeBraska. It was the teams second top 3 finish of the year and they stayed shallow all night throwing craw baits and worms in shallow cover. They had a limit fairly quick and culled up 3 times before dark to get to their final weight. They took home $460.

Big Bass went to Brandon Kitchens and George Escamilla with a 5.18 pounder just narrowly topping the 3rd place team of Jeffrey Piel and Dennis Nassir’s 5.16 pound fish. Brandon said they caught their big fish also in shallow brush on a senko. It’s the first year for the team to fish a Thursday Nighter and already got a check good for $250.

Reports from earlier in the week would had suggested that it was going to be a slug fest come Thursday night. But like all Thursday’s, the wind picked up dramatically stirring up much of the shallow water, in addition keeping most boats off main lake areas and points. The key for the winners this week was shallow water. The blue gill spawn is in full effect, and the bass are with them. Fishing over all was a bit tougher this week with limits and the average weight of fish both down. Unlike last week, the bite turned off once the sun went down. A few teams reported to have caught fish after dark, but the majority of the bigger fish were all caught well before sundown and that included the Big Bass. Dropshot, and tx rigs were most teams go to this week with some teams catching fish on crankbaits. Topwater bite was non-existent according to those that tried to throw one.
