Lake Tawakoni Fishing Report Capt michael littlejohn
Lake Tawakoni Water Condition and fishing report : 10-31-2022 Provided by Captain Michael Littlejohn, Lake Tawakoni Guide Service. Water condition, lightly stained; 73 degrees; 3.96 feet low. The water temperature has begun to cool down and the fall frenzy is about to start. White bass and striped bass fishing is good with fish stacked on main lake humps and ridges in 8-20 feet of water biting on crankbaits, Alabama-rigs and slab spoons. Crappie are good with jigs and minnows in brush piles in 10-12 feet of water. The blue and channel catfish bite is on fire. Eater size fish, 1-4 pounds, have been very easy on prepared baits such as punch bait and dip baits. Timber on the north end of the lake has been the ticket in 12-20 feet of water. Largemouth bass are picking up and fishing for them is decent. Topwater lures early then switch over to a plastic, such as a brush hog, has been putting fish in the boat near shallow docks, rip rap and other isolated structures in water 1-5 feet.
Apr 13, 2022 Water lightly stained; 61 degrees; 1.66 feet low. Windy, windy, windy! Lake Tawakoni has been hard to fish this past week with huge northwest winds then an immediate turnaround of south winds gusting to 40 mph. With that said, the blue catfish in the 2-5 pound range have still been good and limits have been reached despite the tough conditions. Fresh Shad cut in very small pieces is putting fish in the boat. Look for water in the 2-10 feet range and target wind blown points. The hybrid and white bass bite has been moderate at best this week mainly due to the foot rise in water level mixed w/ very windy conditions. The fish we are seeing on side imaging are in 25-32 feet and moving fast. Slab spoons in 1oz topped with a crappie jig are working. Crappie are good on jigs and minnows in 1-10 feet of water. The spawn is still going strong. Bass are great in very shallow water on small crankbaits and flukes. Target shallow docks and even try the rip rap around retaining walls.Captain Michael Littlejohn, Lake Tawakoni Guide Service.
