> What they’re saying: “Pretty much everywhere (in the South) is fishing tough right now and Lewisville’s no different,” said James Biggs, who guides on the lake. “It’s fishing a little tougher than I expected it would be. The lake turned over and now it’s stabilizing, but the fish are just scattered. A jig or a shaky-head is probably the most consistent way to catch ’em on the dam. You can catch them cranking, but the dam generally gets so many boats on it that it’s hard to cover water with moving baits. You’ll have a boat in front of you and behind you., One thing that the decreased recreational traffic will do is open up the marinas to anglers. There are (several) marinas on the lake, so skipping docks and boat slips will be a major pattern. Every marina on the lake has tournament-winning fish; you just have to figure out how to catch them because they get a lot of pressure. There’s also some timber, rocks, there’s offshore structure, shallow wood. I feel like the way this tournament is setting up, you can really fish your strengths and do well.”
