Lake Palestine

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Big Bass


Lake Palestine is a Lake that produces big Bass. Big Bass this time of year love big baits and the baits I like to use are mister Twister Lures 12 inch mag worms. 
The Mister Twister mag 12'' Buzz Worm colors I like are the Plum Apple and the Red Bug on the bright days and on your days that you have less sun light I like the Blue Fleck and the Black Blue Flake.

Heres what I like to do when fishing the big Mag 12 Buzz Worms. I will run  my Lowrance HDS12 on the points in around 12-20 ft water using my side finder and down scan looking for brush piles that crappie fisherman put out. Once I find the brush I will back off abut thirty foot and then cast to the brush. Fishing very slow working my Buzz worms through the brush. I will work it through a few times the I will relocate my boat so that I can pull it slow in different angles. This will be a technique I will use to locate bigger bass in the last days of August. 
If you want to try the new Mister Twister Mag 12'' Buzz Worms you can go to Porters Sporting Goods in Dogwood City on Lake Palestine. Gregg's got a good supply of Mister Twister Lures. Try them their great.

Lake Palestine Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 23)

GOOD. Water clear; 82 degrees; 0.19 high. Largemouth bass are good working Texas-rigged purple worms, white swimbaits, and silver crankbaits near boat docks and rip rap. Crappie are fair on minnows or jigs tipped with minnows around bridges and timber in 15-25’. Hybrid stripers are fair on live bait and slabs in 25-35’. White bass are fair on slabs and swim jigging spoons. Look for birds diving over feeding schools. Catfish are fair on punch baits and live minnows.
