CANYON LAKE, TX – The forecasted threatening weather prompted inquiries on whether there was even going to be a tournament last night but as predictions go, especially when it comes to weather, you just never know. The storms missed Canyon Lake entirely and the 49 teams that showed up were blessed with temps in the upper 70’s, but there was a little wind which got stronger as the night progressed.

Taking 1st place with 13.53 pounds was Charles Whited and Trey Groce. It was Charles and Trey’s fourth Thursday Nighter of 2018 and their first win, but the 2nd time to bring a limit to the scales and get paid. Charles and Trey drew boat 58 and were the second to last boat to be released which seemingly helped them. The team said they started off on some brushpiles with just a couple of small fish to show for it but it wasn’t til late after the sun went down that the team got things going. Charles and Trey fished deep water throwing Tx-rig power worms (probably in pumpkin seed) and Carolina rigs very slow across humps and points to fill out their limit and cull 3 times. Charles and Trey took home $780 with the win.

2nd place went to Matt Hudson fishing solo in his first Thursday Nighter of 2018. Matt only had four fish but 2 good ones including the big bass of the tournament that tipped the scales at 6.36 pounds. Matt mentioned he graphed some trees in the 17’ to 18’ depth that were holding some fish, came back around and throw the shakey head in there and on his 3rd cast caught the big girl. A few casts later and he hooks up with his 2nd biggest fish and then adds a couple of swimmers to get him to a total weight of 12.78 pounds and takes home a total of $705.

3rd place went to Chris Davis and Eddie Bowers with 10.94 pounds. Like the other winners, they too were fishing deep water. The team said the key for them was fishing slow…real, real slow almost like catfishing. They were dragging soft plastics on a ledge that dropped to 50’ of water. It was the teams 3rd time to bring in a limit and 3rd time to get paid.

Mayfly hatch was in full swing last night and they were on everything. Still fish getting caught shallow and with the wind last night there were bunches caught in 3’ or less, just not very big. Brushpiles appear to be over loaded with small bass and the bigger fish according to reports are a little scattered and holding on deep points and ledges.
