Canyon Lake, TX – Another huge turnout and another big pay day as nearly $2500 was paid out to the 115 anglers that came out to Canyon Lake on a hot afternoon. Keeping it going and winning over $1200 was the hot team of Charles Whited and Ty Brumley. The team focused on brush piles throwing trick worms and finesse worms on shakey heads and were able to get a quick limit in the first 45 minutes. Moving around a little bit they were slowly able to cull up before moving shallow and fishing the flooded stickups late to catch their biggest fish of the night and win them Big Bass good enough for $305 plus the $960 for taking first with 15.82 lbs. All together the team won $1265 on a $40 entry.

2nd Place went to Thomas Howe and Phillip Thompson. The team was also throwing trick and finesse worms on shakey heads fishing rocky banks with flooded brush in 10-12ft of water. They reported to have caught fish all night and thought they had the winning fish on. After it got dark Thomas said he felt the tick and set the hook and the fish immediately started taking drag as he yelled to get the net. Thinking they had just won the tournament their heart was broken when Phillip netted a small fish that was caught in the tail. The team ended up weighing 10.63lbs and won $560 and also kept the pressure on in the Angler of the Year race.

3rd place went to Justin Hummel and Leonard DeBraska. This team has come on strong the last several weeks. Just like the 2nd place team, Justin and Leonard are focusing on the flooded brush in the 6 to 10’ range throwing Texas rigged soft plastics. They too also reported to have caught fish all night. They took home $270 for their 3rd place finish.

4th place went to Scott Wilkinson and John Mathews. It’s Scotts 1st year to fish the Thursday Nighters and John’s second, and the team have already got to cash in. They reported to have don’t things a little different and flipped timber with soft plastics. They too caught several fish and culled several times and missed out on 3rd place by a couple of ounces and 2nd place by less than 6 ounces.

Catching on Canyon was pretty good last night as there were 126 fish weighed in. Most teams reported to have caught several small fish. The night started out slow with temps nearing 100 and no wind. Once the wind started to blow just before dark, the bite picked up. Trick worms, craw baits, and shakey heads easily produced the most fish for most teams and the fish are now pushing into the brush piles. There are still fish shallow, but more and more fish are being caught deep as the fish transition into the summer pattern.
