CANYON LAKE, TX – Another great turnout and another big pay day with over $2400 in cash paid back out to the 61 teams that showed up to fish on a fickle Canyon Lake in spite of the threat of storms and wind. Out of the 61 teams that entered, 42 teams weighed fish, but in the end it was the hot team of Jason Murphree and Clint West getting it done with 10.93 pounds to get their first Thursday Nighters win. The team has brought in a limit of fish every week in 2018, they finished 2nd last week and won big bass winning $900 then added another $960 with their win this week. With the win this week, Jason Murphree has taken over as the leader in the AOY Standings. We caught up with Jason and Clint to get the low down and it’s more of the same from that team. They are flipping trees with rock mixed in in 8-12’ of water and catching numerous fish. Clint said they caught somewhere around 30 fish and were able to cull a few times with their last 2 culls coming late in the night which were also their best ones. Drawing boat number 58, Jason & Clint were one of the last boats released so maybe that late night bite was the key.

Fishing in their 2nd Thursday Nighter of 2018 and finishing in second place was the team of Jeffrey Piel and Dennis Nassir. This team focused on points throwing TX-rigs and also caught several fish and were able to cull a few times to get up to their final weight of 9.93 pounds. The team also won big bass with a fat 3.66 pounder that won them an additional $305 on top of their $560 for 2nd place. The team said the big bass was caught after dark which has been a feat to do on Canyon in recent weeks.

Just as it has been all season, everyone is reporting to catch a lot of fish, they are just all 13 inches. Zebra muscles are starting to show their ill effects by cutting anglers line making it that much more difficult to get fish out of cover. We’ve heard of some good fish being hooked and lost and a lot of frayed line.
Congrats to all those that cut a check!
