There is a lot of guys who like to catch big fish. Especially when it comes to tournaments.
Here is my record of big bass caught on Toledo Bend.
This was before they stocked Florida strain in it.
9 LB - 4
8 LB - 378
7 Lb - 562
Did not count 6 lb but estimate- 700 plus
98% were caught on same rig between December and March with the majority caught in January after cold weather had settled in for at least 2 weeks.
You can read about how and where I caught these bass in my new book.
Depth on brush piles were 20-25 ft drops but on the river bank of 15 ft drop to 45 ft fish were 25 to 30 ft on tree roots that stuck out from steep bank.
The Rig- 3/8 oz black/yellow bass buster hair jig with Uncle Josh Spring Lizard Water Dogs. Fished it all day and very rarely got hung up.
Average number of big bass per trip out of one brush pile was 2-7
Aver number of casts per pile 20
Brush piles were created when bull dozers cut boat lanes. They would push the trees until they were maxed out weight wise then turn and push them to the side. One particular boat lane stretch of about a mile had a slope on the west side which created a slide when they push the trees over the edge.
We would anchor in the boat lane and cast into the pile on the slide. It was not a matter of whether you would get a bite but a matter of whether you would get the fish or he would get you.
My best day was New Years eve 1977 10 bass weighed 86 [Linked Image]
lbs.
Good luck and have patience

I recall fishing on Toledo Bend when I was a teenager (late 1960's / early 70's). The trees were still everywhere and you had to basically traverse the path of the river/creek to get to your fishing spots. It was a great lake then. It's been decades since I've fished there.


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Why do we fish for largemouth bass when other fish taste better?
