Lake Livingston Bass Fishing Report May 1996

Black bass: Some bass are still spawning at the time of this writing but the majority of them have spawned out. The bass that have recovered from the spawn will be aggressive and ready to feed. Sluggos and jerkbaits as well as topwaters and crankbaits are some of the baits these bass will eat. The number one bait this month is usually a buzzbait. Fish can be caught on a buzzbait here all day on overcast days and sometimes all day on sunny days. Pop r’s and Zara puppies fished around shallow cover are also effective this month. Carolina, Harmon, Bethy, Caney, White Rock, Newton, and Sandy are all good creeks on the north end of the lake. Crappie: Live minnows and crappie jigs fished in brushpiles 10-15 feet deep should be one of the top patterns for crappie this month. Also standing timber in the creeks hold good numbers of crappie. Catfish: This month catfish will be spawning so they will be shallow, especially on the bulkheads. Night crawlers, shad, chicken liver, and prepared dough baits are just a few of the baits these spawing cats will eat. Bill Cannan Professional Fishing Guide
