They are running up Caney creek and Peach creek, but all males right now. I got about 6 keepers and had at least 20 throwbacks this morning. Biggest one about 13".

Good report. I went over there last week and two sets of father/sons walking down to the split so I went elsewhere. I may take yak over there Friday, weather dependent.

I just got back from a quick trip. Took the yak and paddled down I would estimate half a mile to a deep bend I used to get to in my boat. Like most, this one is about 1/2 as deep as most of the holes I fished last year. I trolled back and forth thru there, nothing on ffinder, and then started to head back upstream, still trolling. As ffinder showed 3-4 ft I started picking them up one after another. They were on outside of two big holes that I fished. Color did not matter. Saw 2 other yaks just getting started and 3-4 waders, not sure why they are keeping 10in fish as they dont filet worth a damn. I stopped counting at 40, no females at all.

I also forgot to mention that I got some lines tangled and beached the kayak to get them cleared and when I stepped back, I went THIGH deep into quicksand. I have fished Spring Creek before J Jones was there and I buried a KX80 one time on that big beach back there that it took us 2 tries to get it out. Dad had an old Bultaco enduro ( wish he never sold it) 250 that he used to ride back there, it was king. There was a lot more of it years ago all along Spring Creek and Ive not stepped in anything like that in over 30 years. I was within reaching distance of my yak but it happened real quick!!!

There is more than you think on Caney. If not on plane I get hung on that bar just below the sand mine breach a lot and have to get out and push across it. I always keep a good hold on my Power Poles while pushing so I can pull myself out when I sink.

Ahhh Spring Creek. A group of us kayaked and canoed from Pundt Park to Carter park. Precinct 4 supplied the canoes and let me drive down my Raptor to the edge of the creek to pull everybodies kayaks up the hill. When I went to come back up the hill I BURIED it. Come to find out a Precinct 4 Constable had stuck a 4 wheeler there the week before. Ended up having to get Milstead Auto to bring out their offroad wrecker (ie old Chevy with super swampers plus winches front and back). Took them winched on one tree while winching me with the other plus me driving in 4X4 with rear locker engaged to get out. Had to stop twice to let their winch and my transmission cool. I ended up frying my torque converter. They kept laughing about a Chevy pulling a Ford until I offered to let them attempt to drive through and then winch off me lol. Did not get any takers. Only time I have ever stuck my Raptor. That sand is soul sucking.

Went again Friday, water temps had dropped to 54 ( from 62 Wed) and it hurt the bite, and I hurt my back getting out of the yak, laid up now. This rain should get them going real strong by mid to end of week. This might be enough water to reposition a bunch of fish trying to spawn.

I bank fished east san jacinto river just downstream of fm1485 Saturday afternoon for 2 hours and left with 15 decent males, threw back probably 10 or more smaller males as well. I saw 2 kayakers with full stringers leaving g when I arrived as well as 2 groups of bank fisherman leaving with full stringers as well. All said caught mostly males, maybe a cpl females. I had fished same area earlier in week and only caught dozen or so undersized males. So was good to finally bring in some better sized fish. Didnt see any active spawning activity Saturday either. Not sure how far downstream from 1485 bridge it is if walking the creek, but cant imagine it's more than a mile or two. Saw cpl vehicles parked at caney creek and 1485 and several pulling into LHW park when I passed by. Upcoming weather may make it a tougher bite but they are definitely starting to show up in some numbers.

Caught these on Saturday (2/29)on the main lake by the 1960 bridge, found bait on the sonar and decided to give it a try and tore into some fat white bass on deep diving cranks . Thought I had on my first hybrid bass but ended up being a huge WB that was 16.75 in and 2’10 oz . Definitely the biggest I’ve caught on lake Houston or probably ever . I was surprised to see them still in the main lake, they were all full of eggs. Kept 10 caught about 20 or so. This was all within a hour right before sunset

nice full of eggs for sure the males are up creek
some females are still in the lake getting ready
to make the run up river or one of the creeks to
find fast moving water for the spawn.
