CANYON LAKE, TX – A historical night was bestowed upon the 82 anglers who chose to come out on this windy night as they witnessed for the first time in 137 tournaments that no team was able to bring a limit to the scales. Many are hoping the 120K fingerlings stocked into Canyon today grow 13 inches by next Thursday. As the catching has remained tough, the team of Steve Vance and Donnie Marshall have capitalized and have finished in the Top 3 for the 4th week in a row. Tonight however, on their 26th tournament fished, the team picked up their first Thursday Nighters win bringing in 4 fish for a solid 11.28 pounds. During their run the team has stuck to the same pattern of throwing moving baits in stick up in the 6-8’ range, but have said one bait has out shined them all and they credit a lot of their success to it. The team to took home $710 for their win and have already won over $2200 while on their hot streak.

Coming in 2nd place with 4 fish for 9.64 pounds and also catching big bass with a 5.82 pound beauty was Brinton Haskins and his excited partner John Ensico. For most of the tournament, team member John Ensico said he did all the lifting throwing a drop shot in 8’ of water to catch their first 3 keepers. Later in the evening Brinton stuck his c-rig into something he said didn’t move, then just took off and came leaping out of the water. John let the lake and surrounding areas know about it when it finally made it in to the net and on the boat as he knew that fish alone had them in contention. The team took home $625 for their 2nd place finish and big bass and it was their fourth time to cash a check in 2019.

3rd place went to father and son team of Blake and Cade Dornburg. Their night was quite the opposite when Cade hooked their big fish within the first 30 minutes of the tournament. Unlike the other winners, Blake and Cade fished deep and caught most of their fish in the 15-20’ range on TX-rigs. The team took home $220 for their 3rd place finish.

In-spite of the few fish that were weighed in, the average fish weight was a hair over 2 pounds even though many teams had reported to catch several undersized fish. In our quick search that is the highest weight per fish we have seen from this lake in more than 2 years. The lake is uncharacteristically producing 2 to 4 big fish every Thursday night and has been most of the year. We will caveat and say that big fish is a relative term, and for Canyon that is 5+ pounds and depending on who you ask it may be 3+ pounds. Shallow water still tends to the best bet for catching fish and moving baits will help you catch them. Covering water is key.
