CANYON LAKE, TX – The weigh masters and scales were busy tonight as 41 of the 52 teams weighed in a new Thursday Nighters record of 129 fish. The evening kicked off a little sketchy with a lot of wind (as usual) and thunderstorms just missing most of Canyon Lake.

Going solo and taking first place was Charles Whited. It’s Charles 4th win on the season and with this win he took home $830 for 1st place
and another $260 for his 4.85lb big bass. All together Charles won $1090 for 3 and a half hours of fishing on a $40 entry. Charles reported to have caught his fish on deep ledges in 20+ foot of water with brush. Hitting several of the TXPWD brushpiles he caught several small fish on speed craws and trick worms, but found some solid fish late to bring up his total weight to 15.64 pounds.

2nd place went to Kyle Ford and Mike Valerio. It was Kyle and Mikes second time to cash a check this year and things started out good for the team as they drew boat #6. Unlike the winner, Kyle and Mike fished shallow grass in less than 5′ all night long throwing flukes, wacky rigs, and tx rigs. Their bag went 10.96 pounds and won them $480.

Finding their way into the money for the first time in 2017 was the team of Bob Prescott and Dustin Crawford who were just narrowly edged out of second by just over an ounce. The team reported to have caught all but one of their keepers on topwaters just as the sun was going down, then were able to find #5 just after dark. They too were fishing shallow grass. The team weighed in 10.76 pounds which was good enough for 3rd place and $255.

Many teams reported to have caught fish extremely shallow, and even some on beds. Fish on Canyon seem to be scattered every where from 1′ to 25′ of water and are eating just about anything. Topwaters such as buzzbaits, and spooks caught several fish around the flooded brush, rocky points and grass. As much as we’ve been cursing the wind on Thursday nights, it definitely has helped the bite. Once the storms passed through and the wind died tonight, so did the bite.
