Because Life is Better at the Lake

Dock Talk - Lake Palestine Crappie Catchin'

by




"Today I had Irene and Neil out again on Lake Palestine.
Irene needed to make a meat run and needed a partner to fish with so I ask Neil if he be interested and he jumped on the opportunity. These two fished together last year as well. So if your interested in a trip and can’t afford it all or don’t have a partner to fish with let me know. Most of the time I can find you a partner to fish with.

Well today was totally opposite from yesterday. We had to work a little for them today. The spot I fished yesterday the fish was gone today. Before livescope I always knew that the fish moved. But with livescope it amazing how much they move, and how many of them will move at one time. And it’s not just certain times of the year, it’s all year long.

Back to fishing we seen two boats out all morning long. You can tell people are getting back to work and school. That’s a good thing.
Today was nothing fast and furious. One here, one there and we grinned it out to get them. A few nice fish the rest are just good eater fish, but we had fun doing it.

We fished submerged timber in 18 to 24 foot of water. With most fish suspended at 10 to 16 foot deep. Fish caught on hand tied jigs in Black and chartreuse and gray ghost.

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.
