Bob Sandlin Fishing Report
- Feb 22, 2024
- FAIR. Water stained; 55 degrees; 0.34 feet above pool. Crappie are fair in 15-20 feet of water with minnows or jigs. Sand bass are excellent with fish stacked under the Texas State Highway 21 bridge with yellow or white slabs. Catfish are fair in 20 feet of water on baited holes with cheese bait. Report by Marty Thomas, Lake O the Pines Crappie Fishing. Bass are good in shallow water with some starting to set up on beds biting lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits, Texas rigged lizards and chatterbaits. Most bass are in 10 feet or less. Expect fish to be spawning in the full moon this weekend. Report by Mike Stroman, R & R Marine. Black bass will be active in the backs of creeks and coves, shad pattern streamers in white are a good bet. Crappies will start their move towards the banks soon, try wooly buggers and small fish patterns fished slowly. Try streamers around retaining walls on warm sunny days. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service.
