FIRST REPORT: Went out Friday afternoon and made it until dark with my family and in-laws, about 3 hours. Managed to get my nephew a PB 11lb blue cat. Winds were light and variable. Did a little drifting and used the trolling motor a bit with side planers. Fished just south of 1960 and just north of the power lines where I saw some spots on a Hot Spots map. Granted I know nothing about the lake. Had no other bites. Fished with a bit of shad and carp I net at the ramp. The fish hit a strip of carp. Water ranged from about 9’-25’. Most shad activity I saw was in the west Fork where I launched and not in the open water. Should I have stayed in the rivers?
Do these fish move to deeper water in the winter like in other lakes I’ve fished? Not real familiar with Lake Houston.
Figured y’all would enjoy the update even though I have no clue what I’m doing
Have a good weekend.
