CANYON LAKE, TX – Weirdness continues on Canyon, and if it’s someone’s intervention we applaud you, although we do not condone it, let’s just put that on the record. What other explanation could there be for the increase of shad, tilapia, bluegill and minnows that the anglers are seeing all over the lake with some mentioning they are even finding big balls of it on their graphs. It’s seemingly doubles from week to week and the fish know about it as well. Fishing for the most part remains tough on Canyon for keeper sized fish, it is after all 100 degrees outside. Short fish although seem to be plentiful.
Perhaps Charles Whited and Trey Groce remembered where they were and went back to doing what anglers are “suppose to do” when it’s hot, and that is follow the bait and fish deep structure. The team mentioned that is exactly what they did tonight and it paid off in a big way bringing in 21.38lbs to the scales and setting a new RECORD BAG for a Thursday Nighter on Canyon. Charles and Trey said they were throwing a variety of soft plastics in the old brush/treeline in 12-18’ of water and caught 10 keepers. The big ones came early with their last big fish coming right at dusk that turned out to be the big bass of the tournament that tipped the scales at 7.18lbs adding another $200 on top of their $660 first place winnings.

2nd place went to the Steve Vance and Donnie Marshall, and they also have moved out to a little deeper water throwing deep crankbaits and soft plastics in the brush in 10-12’ of water. They weren’t able to put together a limit, and they didn’t last week either when they had nearly 17 pounds on 4 fish, but did say they caught several fish. They took home $380 for their 2nd place finish.

For the 2nd week in a row Craig and Jason’s pattern has held up and they followed up their 2nd place finish last week with a 3rd place finish this week. They, like the winners, are also fishing deep but have a little patch of something that is holding some fish. They didn’t have a big fish like last week, but they had 5 fat short fish that tipped the scales a little over 8lbs and earned them $215.

The average weight per fish remains relatively high with a 1.84lb average this week, which is pretty good for summer fishing. Two more big fish were caught this week (again, big fish being relative) one of which was caught deep and the other was caught in 1’ of water. There is only a handful of lakes that can produce 20 pound bags in 100 degree heat, and they are either in south Texas or are loaded with grass. Canyon isn’t either one of those, but some might say it’s trending in one direction.
