It’s been a long while since I’ve posted a fishing report. The last few months have been a whirlwind.
I had (unexpectedly) had surgery a few weeks ago and was laid up for a few weeks but have finally gotten my feet back on the ground (or boat I guess I should say) and wanted to provide an update on the fishing few things.
Are The Catfish Biting On Eagle Mountain Lake?
I’ve taken a dozen calls the past few days with people wanting to know if the catfish are biting. It’s October and the fishing in October is always like hot and cold running water for catfish on all of the North Texas lakes and that’s even more true for Eagle Mountain Lake. With the changing weather and cooling water temperatures the fishing will be great one day and then they scatter again so you just never know what you’re going to get.
This is typical for October and happens every year. How long this will last really depends on the weather and how quickly the water cools. The more hot and cold weather we have the longer it lasts.
It’s cool enough now that I’m ready to start scouting for trophy blues.
The trophy blue catfish bite will fire up and get good the more the water cools. The colder it gets the better the bite is.
Generally the best trophy blue cat bite runs from Thanksgiving until late February when the water warms. Every once in a while we get a bonus year where the water stays cool and the excellent big fish bite lasts longer (like last year).
I’ll be doing trophy blue catfish trips on Lake Worth and will run some on Eagle Mountain Lake as well. We caught some excellent trophy blue catfish on Eagle Mountain in 2012 and all indications are that it will only get better from here.
I’ve got some other big announcements that I’ll be posting about some additions and changes to North Texas Catfish Guide Service as well as some other related new. Be sure to check them out here.
