Lake Conroe Fishing Report April 1999

There are a number of different patterns for black bass on Lake Conroe right now. A number of fish are spawning throughout the lake. Caney, Little Lake, Atkins, Lewis, and Live Branch are some of the creeks that I have been hitting and finding bass on the bed in the backs of all of these creeks. The new Stanley Tuba Tube has been my top choice for the spawning bass. The shallow bite from 0 to 5 feet of water in the backs of these same creeks has been good on the Stanley Platinum Wedge ¼ oz spinnerbait. The best colors in this bait are golden bream and chartreuse white combination. The double willow gold bladed spinnerbait has been a productive bait for me and my customers all spring. Points have Carolina rig and crankbait fish on them. Most of these fish are post spawn. The bait of choice on the Carolina rig is the Bass Assassin chartreuse pumpkin fry assassin, and the grasshopper fry assassin. Medium diving crankbaits like the Bandit 200 and 300 series baits chartreuse/blue back, and also the Norman Middle N’s in chartreuse and pearl/green back. The topwater bite has been good early around shallow docks and rip rap on Rico’s and white buzzbaits. Wacky worms in junebug, green pumpkin, chartreuse pumpkin, and grasshopper have been effective on the shallow fish. Mustads weedless Finacky hook is the best hook for the wacky worm with its built in 1/32 oz weight attached to the hook shank. Bill Cannan Professional Fishing Guide
