The South Region Championship will be held September 24th and 25th on Choke Canyon Reservoir. Twenty-three anglers fished four events and are eligible to participate in the championship. More info will follow.
Final stop on Coleto Creek for the South Region turned out to be a
struggle for most of us fishing. With all the rains from the previous
weeks turned the water color to a tea color but did fill the lake to its
full level. With sixteen anglers fishing and only four anglers weighing
in a full five fish limit indicated that the fishing was tuff.
Rick Shock did prevail and figured out how to catch a winning stringer
of five fish for 12.68 lbs. as well as Big Bass tipping the scales at
3.96. Mike Robbins came in Second with a five fish limit of 9.69.
At the conclusion of our last tournament, Dan Rodriguez finished as the
South Texas Region Angler of the Year. Congratulations Dan for valiant
Cloudy and windy conditions
made fishing for keepers very difficult. Only one five fish limit
weighed in the on Sunday while everybody else ended up on the short end
of their limits. Good news though is that Amistad is bouncing back and
it can only get better. Comments were and I quote “a lot of short fish
caught”. Which means they had great spawn. Lake is looking great with
the grass coming back in depths up to 25 feet.
After weigh-in completed the winner is Cory Leita topping the scales at
11.09 with three fish and finishing in second place Dale Thayne’s five
fish limit of 9.02. Big Bass was captured by Gonzalo Nandin weighing in
at 4.75. See results. Year to date standings are here.
Falcon Lake is down six feet over the last two weeks which means the
fish are biting. Unfortunately a lot of little ones and this means a
great spawn. Everybody caught tons of fish from 30 to 40 a day on
plastics, jigs, square bills and deep diving crank baits, spinner baits
even some top water action going on. Even heard of some bass schooling
from some of the participants. After it was all said done Rick Shock
ends up victorious with a five fish limit totaling 20.16 lbs as well as
a 7.34 Big Bass. Dan Rodriguez follows up with 16.70 lbs to capture
second place. See complete results.
