CANYON LAKE, TX – As the temps continue to rise so do the frustrations of the anglers and for good reason, as we’ve seen a decrease in the amount of limits and overall weights from week to week. Fishing is getting tough, but it’s tough for everyone and those that are to able catch 5 fish of any size or just luck into 1 good fish as we saw last night all have a chance at getting paid. Jason Olivio and Joey Rodriguez however have got something going winning for the 3rd time in the last 4 tournaments. Although last night they didn’t have a limit or the big bass, they had 4 pretty solid fish. They again caught most of their fish flipping a creature bait with their biggest fish coming on a topwater frog. They did mention that the bite has slowed down for them, but at any rate with this win they have won over $5000 in the last 2 months.

Coming in 2nd was Tyler Stanley and Kevin Jackson with 4 fish for 8.07 pounds. It was their 2nd top 3 finish of the year but the fifth time in the money. Tyler and Kevin have been pretty consistent bringing in fish every week and they did it again throwing soft plastics on ledges in the 12’ range.

3rd place went to the current AOY leaders of Thomas Howe and Phillip Thompson whom have just about have the title wrapped up for the 2nd year in a row. They actually had a limit for 8.02 pounds and was less than an ounce out of 2nd place. Shakey heads again in deep water was their weapon of choice.

Fishing on Canyon is tough and is going to remain tough until we get some cooler weather or a lot more water. Small fish are seemingly plentiful with many anglers reporting to have caught their fair share and they are being caught anywhere from 30’ to 1’ of water. The big bass of the event came off a bush in 2’ of muddy water on a jig, but finding fish bunched up is proving to be a feat.
