Just got back from Yequa Creek looking for whites possibly spawning. Threw small spinners and crank baits for 3 hours and not a bite. Water possibly too high and swift currents due to recent run off from rains. Will try again in a week.

Hit the water at birch creek around 6:00am Water was smooth early on, got rough due to weather. It was slightly overcast and had a little rain around 10:00am. We used white crank baits behind the island on the opposite side of the lake. We hit 3 large crapie right off then fishing slowed. Caught 2 largemouth bass in the next 2 hours and called it a day.

My tip for smallmouth bass is find a lake that's been stocked with them.

Somerville Lake White Bass Rating:
3.5
Somerville Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- White Bass typically will start spawning (usually in any major rivers/streams they can head to, upstream
from the main body of water) when the water starts reaching the mid 50s to lower 60s (Early Feb-Apr in
this part of TX). If they can\'t make it upstream, they tend to spawn off windy lake points and similar
areas. White Bass are most active when the water temperatures is between 63 degrees and 76 degrees.
They often frequent sandbar humps in relativity shallow areas of lakes at these temps, eventually
ranging across much of the main lake following schools of shad except for the dawn and dusk hrs when
they move closer to shorelines. Above 80 degrees, the activity starts to decrease. In late fall when the
water temp dips below 50 the activity falls off.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
