Catching Big Bass at Cedar Creek lake Texas, March 30 31 2015!
Was working in Athens Texas for 2 weeks in the spring of 2015 and decided to pull my bass boat down to work with me the last week there. Glad I did! I caught a huge 6 1/2 to 7 lb largemouth (scale weighed a 10 lb bag of potatoes at 8.15lbs when I got home) and a plus 4 pound too. Two days of fishing I caught my limit in under 4 hours of fishing each day. Bags of 18-19 pounds the first day and almost 12 pounds the final day. I caught most of the keepers both days on a KVD #Strike King wht/chart spinner bait, a #Keitech Impact paddle tail rigged on a ball head and a #Zman Chatterbait with a Fat Impact 4.8 Keitech in Sexy Shad color trailer.
Day 1 Video; A 6-7 lb and a 4 lb plus (Release and Details, Conditions, Lures
Day 2 Video; 5 15″ to 17″ keepers, in the boat.
Caught a couple huge largemouth bass first time fishing Cedar Creek Reservoir west of Athens Texas. Water temp in the mid 60’s so spawn was on, though I found some pre-spawn and post-spawn fish also. Biggest was 6 pounds 10 ounces (my then personal best), but found my scale was weighing light by almost 20% percent when I got back home. Caught 5 keepers, all over 2 lbs, and a 4+ big one too and a couple of non-keepers, not quite 15 inches long. Did so well on Monday, decided to fish the 31st also, and caught a small limit of mostly 2 pound males.
