Default Lake Amistad - June 11,2011 - Topwater and Swimbaits still on .

Time - 6am-3pm Shallow black spinnerbait bite at dawn good for numbers . After sun gets above the horizon , moved out to ledges that broke from 13 to 38 ft. within a boat length with swimbaits . 3:16 6 inch mission fish and the RiverSlung Tantilizer , both in Gulf Killifish color, accounted for 8 keepers in the 3-4 lb. range . Deep diving strike king cranks (6) accounted for a lot of small fish up to 3 lbs. off the same ledges where green hydrilla was found . Around 11am is when things really got interesting . The 3rd wave of spawners that had moved up in May to do their thing have gone from their post spawn funk and have started schooling in earnest , with most ranging from 4 to 7 1/2 lbs. ! You'll see schools of little bass break the surface in a panic . Death waits below ! Using an Amazon topwater (Japanese peacock bass lure, looks like an overgrown spook) you could get these bigger fish to commit and smash it on the surface . If they just slapped at it, go directly to them with a lucky craft jerkbait in ghost minnow and it would take care of business . H. C. Baits new prop bait in tan/orange belly also worked well . Mind you these fish were coming up in 26 ft. of water !!!! As the pics below show, it was topwater fun today despite the wind . I even won my club tourney with 15.14 for 3 and Big Bass with a 7.51 . It was indeed a productive topwater kind of day ! Regards .

Great looking fish. Wish they were all big like that in my neck of the woods.
