CANYON LAKE, TX – With temps in the low 90’s and wind in single digits, one could assume that summer is already here, but that didn’t stop the anglers from coming out and setting a new record field of 65 teams (125 anglers). Remaining hot was the team of Charles Whited and Ty Brumley. They followed up last weeks 2nd place finish with a win bringing in 16.90 pounds. It’s been more of the same for Charles and Ty as they continue throwing soft plastics in 5-10’ of water. The team reported they had two 4 pounders and a 3 pounder with in the first 15 minutes on a drop shot. Charles went on to say that when catching that first 4 pounder on that drop shot, that another 4 pounder had latched on to the weight. Although they didn’t get that one, he knew there was fish in the area and it paid off. Later in the evening they moved around a bit and were able to pick up their biggest fish right at dark in some shallow brush. The team took home $1025.

2nd place went to Russ Haberland and Floyd Pace. Throwing a dropshot, shakey heads and other finesse baits they culled their way up to a solid 12.92lbs. It was their 2nd event of the season and a nice pay day of $580.

3rd place went to Mike Bates and Tye Heineman. This team has hovered just right around the money a couple of times this season and were finally able to capitalize and weigh in a solid bag with 11.67 pounds and take home $270.

According to most anglers, there are still fish shallow and feeding on the blue gill that are currently spawning. Some fish have been caught deep on finesse baits, but bigger baits shallow seem to be the ticket for the bigger fish, but you’ll need to cover some water as they are not grouped up in most areas. Many anglers also reported that shallow brush with some chunk rock mixed in were key for them. Drop shot, craw baits, trick worms, shakey heads, and top waters are all working. Smallmouth continue to be weighed in every week which is definitely an increase over years prior.
