While working Lake Somerville on President’s Day, I broke down due to a faulty engine cutoff switch. A family from Giddings was kind enough to pull alongside my boat until I could correct the problem. Boaters, check all your equipment, even when it looks OK.

Reports of white bass and crappie limits were received by Nails Creek State Park personnel, as well as the website, TexasFishingForum.com, beginning on Thursday the 23rd and 24th. Surprisingly, Saturday and Sunday were not as productive as one would imagine.

The majority of white bass being caught now are smaller males which cause one to wonder where the bigger females are. Some fishermen argue females are still in the lake, while others believe they made it upstream with the initial surge of flood water. Still others believe the females will show up once water warms up to the high 60’s or low 70’s. Whatever the case, fishing is hot right now, so don’t hesitate.
