Fishing Report ArchiveJanuary 21, 2010
Lake Amistad has been acting like its normal winter self. Although the water temps have gotten all the way down into the hi 40's something I have not seen in quite a few years.
My last few trips continue to be productive with lots of fish being caught, although size has not been great, a lot of line tugging action as been had.
Current Patterns -
Shallow: I am taking nice bass up to 4.0 lbs in the old hydrilla that is dormant from 10-20 feet. I have been having most of my success on plastics with little or no action. The bite has been soft and the strikes can be hard to detect so watch and feel you line closely. Many of these fish seem to be relating to the deeper sides of the grass areas.
Mid-Depth: I have been catching better quality fish on flats with 20-35 feet of water on them. Drop-shotting has been my most productive techniques in these areas. The bite is a little slower but the size of the fish tends to be a better average. I have been concentrating on the flats closer to main river channels.
Deep: Very similar to my November report the 40 - 70 foot depth zone is productive as long as the bait is present. When finding the bait at this depth we have been catching fish on drop-shot and texas rigged Tequila worms. The bait has been most predominatly located next to sharper drop-offs on the main creek channels and old river channel. If you can get bit on a football jig in these areas this is where you will catch your best quality fish.
See you at the Lake,
