Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report February 2003

Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report February 2003
The lake is at 169.18 ft., high pool is 172 ft. The gates are closed and both generators are shut down. Water temp is running in the low fifties. North end is clearing but more rain is expected this week . Alt copy goes hereBlack Bass: A wide range of patterns and lures are catching some good stringers. On the north end of the lake, there is not much water in the bushes so we’re concentrating on main lake humps and ridges, creek channel points and bends, and river channel shelf and ledges. Carolina rigs with watermelon, black/blue and pumpkin working well in 8 to 14ft depths. Crawfish colored traps and 3/4oz spinner baits are good to cover a lot of water to locate your fish. Jigs in black/blue, camo and brown/orange when fished around lay-downs, brush tops and structure also are productive. The bass are staging and bunching up so if you catch one you should catch some more in the same area. As the water continues to warm, look for the bass to start moving into the shallow spawning flats. White Bass are making their annual migration up the river. Better reports of Whites being caught on red and white Road Runners on the river from Yellow Dog and north. The Whites are slow from the Logansport bridge and south. Crappie have been slow and are moving from their deep water holes to the back of the creeks. Greg Crafts Toledo Bend Guide Greg Crafts Phone: 936.368.7151 gcrafts@bigfoot.com
