A few of us were able to get out to South Lake in Farmersville, Texas on Saturday morning. We were on the water by 6:45am, just in time for the morning top water bite. It was very humid from the overnight storms but the cloud cover was a nice break from the Texas sun. Winds were calm for most of the morning.
I started out fishing the NE corner of the lake, throwing my good ole hula popper in pockets of water clear of the heavy vegetation. I ended up with 5 on the day, 3 on the hula popper and 2 on a drop shot finesse worm. Nothing of any size, but I wasn’t complaining. Also had several misses on the frog. Nothing like that top water surface explosion. We were off the water by 11am.
After South Lake and a quick bite at Whataburger, I headed over to my ponds to close out the day. I ended up fishing til 4pm and left em biting. I lost count after # 12. They couldn’t resist the dual drop shot worm setup I was using. I alternated between zoom watermelon red finesse worm and green pumpkin trick worm. I almost exclusively fish worms Texas rigged but on this day, the drop shot technique was very efficient and very fun. Probably not anything new but I tied 2 #6 hooks/worms on the drop shot about 12” apart from one another. Two worms = double your chances, right?
