My Wife and I fished Fayette County lake Sunday, Dec.30th. It was a cold gorgeous morning with minimal wind. We went to the outake where the water was up to 92 degrees. It was 60 degrees max everywhere else. I started out throwing a crawdad colored crank bait. I hadn't throw ten times when I got a good solid strike and pulled in a 5 pound large mouth. Fifteen minutes later, got another 5# and a 6#. My Wife switched from her spinner bait to a smaller crawdad crank bait and on first cast caught a 2 pounder. Tried hard but didn't catch anything else.

About 1:00, we had some conversation with another fisherman at the launch. He said he was killing them on Black Saltys. He asked if I wanted a few. My Wife had only caught that one fish, so I said "yes" to his offer. We drifted some deep water and on the 1st bait, my Wife caught a 5#. On the next bait, she brought in another 5#.

We fished the rest of the Black Saltys we were so kindly given but didn't land anymore. All in all, a beautiful day with some very nice fish.

Keep safe,

Sounds like a great time on the lake with your wife. I've never tried the Black Saltys but it sounds like they work... :-)

Thanks for posting the report and I look forward to hearing more about Fayette and other lakes down there since Wes never puts up any reports from the Austin area....
Thank you Lord for my family and the waters I get to fish
