Belton Fishing Report

May 25, 2022
GOOD. Water lightly stained; 77 degrees; 4.31 feet low. The threadfin shad spawn is tapering to a close and thanks to the recent stretch of unseasonably warm temperatures the strong late-spring white bass bite is now past peak. Topwater action in areas where the overnight winds have blown has been reliable for largemouth, smallmouth, and white bass during a short window from 6:45-8:00 a.m. using MAL Originals. After that early topwater action, we have relied exclusively on the MAL Dense used in conjunction with Garmin LiveScope to fish vertically for white bass and short hybrid, which are still heavily congregated on the bottom in 32-50 feet of water. Report by Bob Maindelle, Holding the Line Guide Service. Crappie are good in timber ranging from 18-27 feet of water using ten foot pro SE outlaw crappie rods paired with ATX Lure companies two inch wicked shad. Report by Zach Minnix, Jig N Jerk Guide Service.
