Fishing North East Texas December 06
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:43:54 PM »

Again it was a great day of fishing in N.E. Texas. The temps were a little cool in the 40s but was actually quite nice unless under power moving to another location. Anyway I tried jigs tight to cover starting out with no real results. I landed 1 fish before abandoning that location and moving to an area of dying off pads. We had similar circumstances here another outing where as the day progressed we started to see some light top water action. So with the possibility we could get a little top water action I put the Stanley Top Toad to work and my friend a Netbait Paca Toad Sr. We tried these for a bit and boated one on the Netbait Paca Toad Sr.. and I lost one near a mat on the Stanley Top Toad.

As time passed the little action that we had seen on top died off. So I went to a Stanley Original Ribbit in Watermelon Red Pearl color. I started fan casting and keeping it down in the water columns 6" to 12" or so. As we slowly covered the area I started getting hit. It wasn't a fast bite at all. As a matter a fact the bites were quite soft feeling like perch tapping in some instances. Never the less after missing several I was setting the hook and boating some fish. I think it was a total of 8 or 9 I caught. I think I had 1 that was under the legal 14" rules the rest were about every size and shape except for any ground breaking monsters.  lo  Down below I included some of today's catch.


Date: 12/06/17
Time of day: 2PM - 5PM
Weather conditions: Cloudy Wind 5 TO 8 mph North North West
Air temps: Air temp low of 43 high 49
Water Clarity: Turbid
Lures and techniques used:
  • Netbait Paca Toad Sr., Color White Pepper, used with Gene Larew 7 mm glass rattle inserted into craw, all on a 1/4 oz Berkley Fusion19 Weighted Swimbait Hook - Long casts in semi sparse dying lily pad fields. Retrieved steady and slow but just fast enough that the feet would kick.
  • Stanley Top Toad, color White - Long casts in semi sparse dying lily pad fields. Retrieved steady and slow but just fast enough that the feet would kick.
  • Stanley Original Ribbit, color Watermelon Red Pearl with Stanley unweighted Double Take Hook - Long casts in semi sparse dying lily pad fields. Retrieved steady and slow under the water but just fast enough that the feet would kick. Best bait of the day by far.
  • Zoom Ultravibe, color Sapphire Blue, used with a Stanley Jigs Hand Tied Punch Skirt in Blue Water Dog color, 3/8 oz tungsten weight, Bass Pro Double Arm Rattler, tied to a 4/0 Trokar Flippin' Hook - Was used as a pitching bait to isolated mats. Biggest and most catches of the day.

Some of the area we started at

As always a great report. Thanks for sharing the details. Always awesome when the air temp is in the 40's and you can still whack a few ~c~
