Lake Hendricks

8 posts in this topic

About 25 years ago we used to pick some nice, close to 2# perch on Hendricks. I haven't heard any solid stories from there the last few years, but heard through the "fish vine" that they were still there. Anyone tried it the last while?

NO,NOT LATELY. SAY THEY HAVE BEEN GETTING 2# SILVER BASS THERE. LOOK FOR THIS LAKE TO TURN ON IN THE NEXT 2WEEKS. IT USUALLY HAS A JULY BITE. MAINLY ON RAPS.

Actually, they are white bass. Many people call them silver or striped bass, but they are really white bass. However, they can be fun to catch.

They are also good to eat if you gill and gut them right away and put them on ice....then trim the dark red belly meat when you filet them....also good smoked...but what isn't?

Smoking is one way to make catfish edible!

A buddy of mine wants to go fishing later this week...maybe we'll try it there first. Back in the '80's the only thing they would bite on jigging was a white tear drop jig or plain gold hook with either a crawdad tail or the lighter-colored half of a nightcrawler. I caught one there that was over 2# back then, plus lots of other jumbos. Thanks for the info.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
