No doubt, living in West Tawakoni will lead you to the lake. Most of the year you can get out on a boat, go swimming, or get your suntan on. Many who live here just love to fish.
Lake Tawakoni has all kinds of great fish that include blue catfish, hybrid striper, white bass, and striped bass which can actually be fished all year round on Lake Tawakoni. The catfish here are outstanding. Thereâ€™s a reason itâ€™s called the Catfish Capital of Texas!
If you are new to our lovely lake area, you may not realize the fishing potential. We got some tips from our friend, Mickey Casey, a local Lake Tawakoni Fishing Guide.
Sometimes fishing can be like hunting. Striped bass, white bass, and hybrid striper will move a lot and follow the shad around Lake Tawakoni. If you are fishing a spot and do not catch a striper, white bass, or hybrid striper, move to another spot. Keep moving until you find fish that are feeding.
Never use frozen bait for Lake Tawakoni blue catfishing. Fresh and frisky bait is very important to your catfishing success on Lake Tawakoni.
Make sure your boat batteries are charged up and ready for a full dayâ€™s use. Add distilled water to your batteries twice a year and keep them charged. You may have to run your trolling motor all day if the wind is up.
If you fish live bait, make sure you have a quality tank to keep fish alive. Casey suggests you spend money on your bait tank and also treat the water with rock salt or chemicals.
Many find luck with blue catfishing slow drifting across flats on Lake Tawakoni. Drift speed is very important and you should always have a drift sock out. If you have a big boat two drift socks may be needed.
Lake Tawakoni is the Catfish Capital of Texas, and each winter you will find anglers from all over the USA trying to put a trophy in their net.
Hopefully, if youâ€™re new to The Cloisters of West Tawakoni, you can get out on Lake Tawakoni and catch yourself a tasty catfish or bass thanks to these tips. Happy fishing!
