Because Life is Better at the Lake

The BIG Girls Are About To Pull Up


Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at:

Lake level is still +77 high with all gates open and surface temps are 68 on upper end and 60 lower end. The spawn is on. Guide, Eddie Garrett reports that on the northern end there has even seen “fry” balls, but from mid lake to the south end fish are just now starting to pull up on spawning beds.

“We have a warm week coming and it's about to bust loose. We had several windy,cold and rainy days the past week and we still caught them pretty decent. But now going forward this week through April is when I love it,” said Garrett.

He said on the upper end a lot of people are bed fishing, flipping, throwing frogs, crank baits and spinner baits as first big wave has already come in. “We are fishing mid to lower end for pre spawn in cooler temps as the first wave will be in shortly.

“Our best bite has been Carolina and Texas rigs with 1/2 oz. weights with a 18" leader in 3' to 7' inside secondary points, drains and spawning flats.” Lizards, V&M Chop Sticks and LFT creature baits are taking their share of bass.

“On this big warming trend we have coming these fish are about to really chomp and the BIG girls are about to pull up.” Garrett can be contacted on
