April and its weather has been a challenge so far. One day its sunny , the next day its 25 mph winds out of the north,  and the next day your wearing your winter jacket.. But the fishing still has been very consistent with catches. See a lot of Redfish and a few Stripe Bass being caught. The kyackers are catching them long lining crank baits. Bank fisherman using shrimp and live perch are doing well. For the down riggers, soft plastics and spoons are doing very good.

 Starting to see signs of the summer patterns setting in.  For the most part, the fish have been in the back of the lake.

 Rain, we have been seeing a lot of it lately. It moves the fish around some. Most of the time the redfish will move up to shallower water. Seeing a lot of action on spoons. Play it by ear on the size and color, try different combinations until you pick a fish. Then just duplicate it. Seeing a lot of people anchored up and using shrimp and catching them redfish. Calaveras Lake, Braunig Lake, Canyon Lake and Choke Canyon Reservoir should be producing fish, you never know until you wet a line.......

Calaveras Lake is on fire for Redfish. The boats are loading up with them right now. They are biting on pretty much everything you can throw at them. The 181 one cove is where most of the action is , but the two cove on each side will work to. We had a group company fishing charter this week with three boats and we put 41 keeper redfish on the cleaning table. There catching redfish at Braunig Lake to, pretty much in the back of the lake behind the jettie. Spoons and soft plastics will work there to.

Calaveras, Braunig & Canyon Lake's Latest Blog Entry

August 15, 2018 

 I fished Braunig Lake the other day, due to it being so crowed at Calaveras Lake. With the rain we had the other day, the Redfish fishing has slowed them down some. But the bottom bite for them has been decent. Its been more consistent  than trolling. Fish bites, live bait and head on shrimp been the top producers. Just keep in mind, there is a lot of boats in certain areas of the lake. Be opened minded and that these areas are a community fishing hole. You don't have to make long cast to catch them. Don't forget about Canyon Lake, the White Bass and Stripers should be on there summer patterns. 1 ounce jigging spoons should do the trick there. Call Captain Nixon to get on some of that action.

 Don't forget the Redfish spawn is right around the corner. White Bass run too, Nuecess River and the Guadalupe River for those tasty fillets.

November 14, 2018 

 Bones Fishing Guide Service, Catfishing is in full swing at Calaveras Lake and Braunig Lake. Shallow water, Flats, Points and Deep water areas are working. If they are not biting in one are, move around till you find them. Cheese Baits, Shad and Shrimp usually works best. Don't forget about trying some chicken livers. On some warms days, you might be able to find some Redfish mixed in with them. There is a lot of pot licking going on at the Lakes, LOL, but that's how it goes on them two small lakes. Try bottom fishing, free lining, drifting or even old reliable bobber. Remember, what didn't work today, might work tomorrow!

Calaveras Lake, Braunig Lake, Guadalupe River, Nueces River & Canyon Lake's Latest Blog Entry

January 4, 2019

 Bones Fishing Guide Service,  up dates are finally here. I've been at Canyon Lake a couple of times. It's either really good or just ok. When the fish are on top, it's pretty exciting. It seems the whole lake is bubbling. White Bass, Stripe Bass and Large Mouths are feeding. If we had the magical match on what they are eating, we would sink the boat with fish. But, that is fishing. Now, there is word that 99 bridge is producing some very nice limits of white bass. There is finally some water in there, Yes can launch your boat. For the Nueces River, We are seeing some mix bag of male and female white bass. Not sure what is going on with the rapids, but i'm pretty sure they are catching there too. Water temperature is around 59 degrees. Also, the water is up at both the Guadalupe River and the Nueces River, at least 4 to 5 feet. So be careful when boating up and down the rivers..

April 9, 2019

 Bones Fishing Guide Service, (Calaveras Lake & Braunig Lake Fishing),  Redfish started around March 15th, and its off to a slow start. They are way behind schedule. For both Calaveras Lake and Braunig Lake. I'm seeing from all the fishing guides out there about the same results. averaging 1 to 4 keeper redfish. By watching facebook, it seems the night fisherman are doing better. Over all San Antonio's fishing is only going to get better, especially when the sun decides to stay! My biggest recommendation is to cover a lot of water or grind to you find them redfish. For the Stripe Bass, just pick up your speed and hold on, because out of the blue , the Stripers will nail your bait.

 For Canyon Lake Fishing, I'm seeing some post of catches of Crappies. They should be ready or are spawning. So load up on some minnows and jigs, and hit the water. Now the bass should also be spawning or getting to. Beat the backs or cover a lot of shore line.  Thank you for choosing Bones Fishing Guide Service, Trips & Charters

 Bones Fishing Guide Service, With the the rising temperatures, Calaveras Lake fishing and Braunig Lake fishing has been real consistent for catching Redfish and Blue Cats.
