Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report April 2003

Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report April 2003
The lake is at 170.84 ft. and slowly falling, high pool is 172 ft. Water temperature is ranging in the lower seventies. One generator operating 8 hrs per day. North end of the lake is clear. Last weekend’s cold front and high pressure slowed the bass bite down from what it’s been. A lot of bass have moved off the beds and are in a post spawn pattern and in a transition stage. Soft plastics, wacky worms, and flukes, still working in shallow depths and CR and Texas rigs working along creek channel drops and main lake points as the bass start moving back into deeper water. Alt copy goes hereMost of the White Bass have moved back into the main lake. Good reports coming in on large numbers and good stringers. Work the river channel sandbars with slab spoons, and tail spinners. The bream are moving on the beds and should only get better as the water continues to warm. Crickets working best. Good reports of Crappie being caught before last weekend’s cold front in 2 to 3 foot of water on shiners. Work the back of the coves and outside edges of the buck-brush. Good reports of Catfish up to 60lbs coming in on trot-lines strung in 4 to 8ft. of water. Live bream working best. For all the bow hunters, huge gar and carp working the shallows. A 170 lb Alligator gar was brought in last weekend. For anyone interested, I have a guide who is rigged up a platform boat and all the gear for bow hunting. If interested in booking a bow- hunting trip, just give me a call and I’ll set you up. Greg Crafts Toledo Bend Guide Greg Crafts Phone: 936.368.7151 gcrafts@bigfoot.com
