Conover Takes

Cypress springs

April 26, 2015 Lake Cypress Springs Hours 6:15am - 3:00pm
Conditions Sunny Temperature Low 60 - High 84
Anglers 36 # of Limits 10
Fish Weighed 107 Total Weight 236.16 lbs.

The prospects of Cypress Spring being really good brought 36 anglers to the table this month. The weather was beautiful over the weekend, and the fishing was a little tough. Changing water conditions, due to the soaking rain on Friday night, threw a curve ball at the field. Overall the fishing was better than what many have been used to over the past few months.

1st – Randy Conover brought an impressive 16.15 lbs. limit to the scales. His bag included a nice 6.31 lbs. fish that also took big bass of the event. Randy worked throughout the day to put his limit together, catching most fish shallow punching the gator grass and then Carolina rigging drop-offs.

2nd – Dan Phifer finished in the runners up position, bringing 13.34 lbs. to weigh-in. Dan’s fish were all caught shallow around the gator grass, flipping a craw worm. Dan also worked throughout the day to put his limit together after not having a keeper in the morning.

3rd – Mike Dysput takes 3rd place with 4 fish weight 12.28 lbs. Mike had a 6.18 lbs. beauty in his bag. Mike caught his fish shallow also. At the time of the newsletter, I can’t recall what Mike caught his fish on.

4th – Chad Petrie had a 12.03 lbs. limit by the end of the day. He was fishing the shallow vegetation like the rest of the field.

5th – Chad Hensley was 5th for the day with his limit weighing 11.73 lbs. Chad caught his fish on a wakebait and craw worms.

6th – David Porter fooled his 11.29 lbs. limit with watermelon red flukes around the shallow vegetation.

7th – Mike Hughs rounded out the placing positions with his 10.79 lbs. bag of fish. Mike, like Porter, caught his fish shallow on flukes.

Big Bass – Randy Conover takes big bass honors with his 6.31 lbs. largemouth.

Heavy Boat – Dan Phifer and Bill Burleson take home heavy boat honors thanks to Bill’s quick start on the morning and early determination of what bait they wanted on that day. Together they brought 23.61 lbs to the scales.
