Bass still at multiple depths

Don’t count out the big bass in the winter.

At Lake Fork, water temperatures remain about where they were last month, and guides have been reporting success.

“My clients and I have been having great success around shallow grass in 2-4 feet with lipless crankbaits like the 6th Sense Snatch 70X and a shallow-running Movement 80X in pro red shad and shad drone colors,” said Lake Fork guide James Caldemeyer.

Bass also are holding in mid-depth creek channels and on deep structure.

“We have been using a 1/2-ounce black/blue Santone Rattlin’ Jig, flipping timber in 8-14 feet depths,” Caldemeyer said. “The deep bite has also been very good on flutter spoons and umbrella rigs fished on main lake structure in 22-32 feet.”

As the water temperatures dip into the 40s, Caldemeyer expects a shallower bite will be slow in the morning until it warms up later in the afternoons. But mid-depth and deep fishing should remain steady.

Some large smallmouth bass also have been landed on lakes Grapevine and Ray Roberts. A potential lake record smallie at 4.95 pounds was landed at Lake Grapevine last month on a square-billed crankbait, and a good stringer of largemouth and big smallies was landed at Ray Roberts on several lures, with a jerkbait being the most successful according to Internet posters.

According to Falcon Lake Tackle’s fishing report, the bite was described as decent with all sorts of different tactics being used.

“Most people are using Carolina rigs with a fluke in the deepest water they can find,” said James Bendele. “But the people fishing shallower have been doing just as well.”

Bendele had recent success with a chartreuse square-billed crankbait and a chartreuse lizard and craw. The fish on the border reservoir were already full of eggs last month.

Texas airgun attracts attention at SHOT Show

One of the biggest attractions at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas turns out to be a homegrown airgun.

AirForce Airguns of Fort Worth introduced the sound-suppressed TexanSS Air Rifle in .45 caliber at the show to a crowd.

The new air rifle is the much quieter version of the AirForce Texan, which remains the world’s most powerful production air rifle, according to the company. The TexanSS is slightly smaller — and a lot quieter — than its full-throated namesake.

The TexanSS features a precision rifled 24.75-inch barrel that will push a lead projectile to deliver up to 400 foot-pounds quietly. The rifle has an overall length of 45 inches and features a patented side lever action for easy loading and cocking

The suppressed airgun shoots a 405-grain bullet at 900 feet per second and allows three full-powered shots before needing to refill the air cartridge.

“We wanted to minimize sound while retaining as much of the Texan’s power as we could. This air rifle strikes that balance perfectly,” said AirForce CEO and Founder John McCaslin.

First look at Nikon’s new rangefinder binocular at the Shot Show in Las Vegas. The 10×42 LaserForce has a 1900 yard range, ED glass and many other cool features like the incline technology. Oh yeah, they come with the No-Fault repair/replacement policy. I ordered a pair and will have some field test reports soon. #lonestaroutdoornews #shotshow2017 #showshow #nikonsportoptics #hunting #deerhunting

With Monday counting as a holiday for many, outdoorsmen got an extra day of hunting and fishing.

LSON’s Craig Nyhus helped guide some duck hunters Saturday. It was slow, but Dakota, the newsroom dog, got in some good retrieves. Nyhus also got the opportunity to enjoy the Houston Safari Club’s annual convention over the weekend. Mike Hughs finished up his hunting season by cleaning his guns. He’s looking forward to some bass fishing soon, so working on the boat was next.

Post cold-front fishing along the Texas coast is great, according to Capt. Nathan Beabout.

“It started of slow today, but from 10:30 a.m. on the bite was aggressive!” said Beabout. “Nothing big, but nice solid 18- to 22-inch trout.”

Beabout reported 25-35 keeper trout and reds caught on Down South Lures, Magic Grass, Strawberry Wine, and Corkys.

“We concentrated our wades in knee to thigh deep water,” he said, adding a few fish were kept for dinner but the rest were released.
