Lavon Fishing Report

Sep 28, 2022
GOOD. Water lightly stained; 80 degrees; 5.55 feet low. Fishing patterns are similar, but may change after the forecasted cold front. White bass are good on one ounce white or chartreuse slabs on structure in 10-20 feet of water. Swimbaits will work when they are up on top, but there has been little surface activity recently. Crappie fishing is best after 10 A.M. on structure in 10-18 feet of water with minnows and jigs. Fish are holding 12-14 feet down, with the larger fish hugging the bottom next to structure. Looking shallow as the sun is coming up, around 8:30 A.M fish start hugging structure as the sun gets higher. Black bass are good using topwaters for the first half hour of day light. Switch to white and chartreuse spinners with a paddle tail swimbait as the trailer, Carolina or Texas rigs, and crankbaits as the sun comes up after 9 A.M. focus on brush piles in 10-20 feet of water. Live scope helps with that approach. Alabama rigs on deep rock piles 15-25 feet of water. Catching better numbers 5-10 feet of water, but the next day they might be 10-15 feet deep. Cloudy days the bite is shallow, and sunny days the bite pushes deeper. Catfish are great in 5-15 feet of water on ledges and flats using cut drum or sunfish, and gizzard shad. Find the huge bait schools that blacks out your fish finders. The cats will be trailing and eating the main school of bait. Bobber your baits off the bottom or even with no bobber using a santi rig. The fish are feeding great right now and there are lots of double digit fish coming over the rails. Sunfish are great on brush 10-20 feet of water using earthworms, crickets or even bacon. Leave a strip of bacon outside for a couple hours and let it tighten up, then use a pinky nail size for bacon bait on a very small hook. That way you won't have to re-bait every time you set the hook. They are very easy right now. Report by Carey Thorn, White Bass Fishing Texas.
