FISHING FORECAST:  May is “hump month” on Lake Livingston.  White Bass will be stacking up on mid lake and lower lake humps in 11 to 17 ft. depths. This is where Whites can be caught in big numbers by vertical jigging slab baits.  190 roadbed, the “ hump” by Pine Island, Dove island and humps in Penwaugh Bay are just a few spots.  Position your boat right over the hump drop the slab straight down to the bottom, pick your rod tip up and let the slab fall again. The fish will often hit a falling slab. White and chartreuse are some of the best colors.    

Lake Livingston consists of over 90,000 acres of water and 450 miles of shoreline.

 SPECIES REPORT:

Black Bass – {largemouth} Fish black and Blue Lizards and June Bug Baby Brush hogs around the logjams now. Throw white spinner baits around shallow wood and rocky points.  Some good fish still being caught on Charlie’s jigs fished around docks in Newton, Upper Carolina and Bethy Creeks. 

Catfish – Fish the old 190 roadbed now for Blue Cats and Channels. Drop chicken liver and fresh shad down to the old bridge rails. Windless days are best. Use 20 lb. test to prevent break offs here. 

 Crappie – Look for Crappie to move in to the deeper boathouse mid lake and lower lake now.  Fish minnows about 6 ft. down under a slip cork.White Bass – Whites will be stacking up on mid and lower lake humps and can be caught here in good numbers on Tsunami Zombie eye jigs.
