CANYON LAKE, TX – After 10 weeks of heavy wind we finally got to see what it feels like to fish in normal conditions. With winds blowing 5-10mph and almost 0mph just before launch, most didn’t expect the night to turn out like it did. Average fish weight went up from last week, as did the number of fish caught, and the amount of limits. We also saw a heavier stinger than last week and the heaviest we have seen in a month when Justin Hummel and Leonard Debraska came to the scales and filled the weigh basket with an impressive 16.07 pound bag. What was more impressive about their catch is almost all the fish were the same size. The team reported to again fish shallow targeting brush and rock with soft plastics and put together a great sack and was able to cull 6 times. With their win the team won $830 for first place as well as an additional $500 for fishing out of a Skeeter. So far in 2017 there has been $8000 awarded in Skeeter Real Money.

Following up their win from last week with a second place finish was Charles Whited and Ty Brumley. This team again moved around a lot and started the day up near the river where Ty was able to pick up 3 keepers pretty quick. The team fished both shallow and deep throwing trick worms and a drop shot to get a limit and 1 cull. They mentioned that all fish were caught before the sun went down.

Fishing in only their 2nd event and already taking home a check was the young team of Darren Zipp and Michael Martin. The team narrowly edged out the father and son team of Blake and Cade Dornburg by less than a ¼ of an ounce with 11.10 pounds. The team found some fish in some brushpiles and on a rocky stretch and were able to capitalize throwing soft plastics.

The fishing on Canyon last night was pretty good. The wind picked up as the night went on, but it was manageable and kept anglers cooled down. The shallow bite with soft plastics again produced for most of the anglers in the money, and most fish again came before dark. With sunset now pushing 9pm, the after dark bite is becoming less relevant. Over the last several years on Canyon Lake 9 to 11pounds would likely win a Thursday Nighter, and if not, it would get you paid for sure. That is no longer the case. The 14 inch fish are now pushing 2 pounds and there are more 3 pound fish in the lake then we have seen in recent years. It has taken no less than 13 pounds to win a Thursday Nighter this year and more often than not 15 pounds or better is what you need to get it done.
