As of 6 PM it is still dry here. But the fish were biting for most anywhere from 1' to 20'.Like two weeks ago the weights are back up.

The LFA fishes every Thursday except T-Day and Christmas on 2 different formats. A 5 fish limit we call LFA and a MLF style format where every fish counts we call Hard Core, 3 special tournaments and an end of year dinner. We are a club of 58+ seniors (Mostly) and are very liberal on members being for off vacations and medical issues. Even though we are practicing social distancing and wearing masks, we have about 10 sitting out from Covid exposure,

Right now we are looking for more members, both boaters and co-anglers – boaters fish for free.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 20)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 75-76 degrees; 2.05 feet low. Bass fishing has been slow due to the Fall turnover, but should improve very soon with the cooler weather approaching. Bass are liking white or chartreuse chatterbaits, shad colored squarebills, jerkbaits, and wacky rigged senkos in shallow water. Crappie are very good on jigs and minnows in brush piles and standing timber in 15-20 feet of water. Catfish are excellent on self baited holes in 20-35 feet of water.
