The fishing on Big Sam is falling into a true summer pattern with the exception of fish still remaining in the bushes. The lake is a little over 4 feet high right now. The shallow bite remains spotty with flukes, senkos, TX rigged worms and small crankbaits working best. However, if your looking for size the jig bite is getting good. The bass are grouping up in the grass and are buried in the middle in 13-17ft. Most fish appear to be on the bottom and are hitting the bait either right before it hits the bottom or as you start to shake it. The bass look excellent, like footballs. Today we caught fish on a 1oz Stanley Camo jig with TX smoke craw and on a Gambler paddletail worm pumk/grn flake. If you would like to book an instructional jig trip this summer or just a regular trip please email me or call 409-698-2227 and visit my web site for more info.
