Tawakoni Fishing Report

Jan 25, 2023
GOOD. Water lightly stained; 52 degrees; 1.10 feet below pool. The entire state has had an unusually warm January which has contributed to a rapid rise in water temperature. This has really turned on the hybrid striper and white bass bite. Our methods for catching them have been more like a fall pattern including throwing swimbaits and slabs. Deeper depths around 30-40 feet have been the most productive, and the loons and gulls have helped locate fish on some days. Trophy catfish bite has been good with fish up to 65 pounds. Best depths have been 18-30 feet of water using fresh cut gizzard shad, drum and buffalo. As a result of the warmer water temperatures, the eater catfish bite in the 1-5 pound range has really picked up. Catching good numbers using fresh cut shad and prepared bait, such as punch bait. Crappie bite has been good in 25-35 feet of water near main lake structures like bridges and deeper timber. Jigs and minnows have been the ticket. Largemouth bass bite is good right on square bill crankbaits and weightless flukes. Report by Captain Michael Littlejohn, Lake Tawakoni Guide Service.
