How to find bass fishing report for Texas

Finding a bass fishing report for Texas can be done by going to the Texas Department of Parks and Wild Life website at http://www.2eggmarketing.com/answers/Assets/PHP/%22http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/%22. The Texas Department of Parks and Wild Life gathers information from fisherman that use any state park or state controlled body of water (lake, river, and reservoir) for fishing. The website does not have a charge for any of this information it can be accessed for free by anybody. The information will usually include the types of baits and or lures used along with techniques, hot spots and the time of day. This information is gathered either by the word of mouth or by the fisherman volunteering the information at a visitor center at one of the state parks. After gathering this information the website will be updated. In some cases it will be updated every day but the normal is once every week during the peak fishing seasons. You may not be able to get a bass specific report but you can look at information pertaining to the lake you would like to fish in and from there you will be able to see how good bass have been biting in that lake. Using this website will also give you a lot of good information that doesn’t have anything to do with the current bass fishing report but may help you decide on a fishing trip in the days or weeks to come. Some of the more helpful information will be about current water temperatures and forecasted water temperatures in the weeks to come. Information on spawning activity can also be found here and will definitely help out in picking the perfect time for heading to the lake for a successful day of bass fishing. You will also be able to see any fishing or boating restrictions that might be in place at the time you are planning your fishing trip and this will allow you to plan accordingly and not end up at the lake with or without something you needed or possibly with something that is restricted at the i.e. baits or tackle. There may also be closures around the park you are interested in visiting and by seeing these ahead of time you can choose another location ahead of time saving you the hassle of driving out just to find your favorite spot or boat ramp is off limits.

Sporting goods stores are another good place to find bass fishing reports especially the larger stores like Bass Pro Shops or Sportsman’s Warehouse. During the peak fishing seasons these stores will have fishing reports along with any other helpful information posted in the store. The entrance to the store at Sportsman’s Warehouse is where this information will be posted. In most cases the fishing reports are found on the right of the entrance and the left is usually used for pictures of trophy fish and game that has been taken in the area. These fishing reports will have information on various places that are popular in the area but will not be only for the state parks or state controlled fishing areas. The information found here will be volunteered from fisherman that have been fishing in the area recently and will probably be limited to size and numbers of fish being caught. Make sure the fishing report you are reading is dated so you don’t go out without dated information, in most cases the store has a good handle on this but people make mistakes and one of these mistakes may cause you a disappointing day at the lake.

If you use GOOGLE or another search engine on the internet and put Texas bass fishing report in the search box you will get a lot of websites to choose from. http://www.2eggmarketing.com/answers/Assets/PHP/%22http://www.wmi.org/bassfish/reports/texas%22, http://www.2eggmarketing.com/answers/Assets/PHP/%22http://www.bassdozer.com/bass_reports%22 and http://www.2eggmarketing.com/answers/Assets/PHP/%22http://www.txfishing.com/central.html%22 are good examples and a great place to start. With the popularity of bass fishing a lot of these websites are dedicated to just that and you will not have to surf around through a bunch of other fishing information that you are not interested in reading. The fishing reports on these websites will also be free because these sites make their money advertising and selling merchandise. On some of these sites the information will be a lot more thorough than that found any place else because the fishermen can post their own stories allowing them to go into great detail about what, when and where has been the most successful fishing for them. The website will have all of this information broke down by date and location so you can see if the bass are more active in one part of the state. Information on specific species of bass may also be found here if you prefer to fish for one or the other.
