(May. 27, 2010 - Tyler, TX) June and what it has to offer us. First of all did you know that June is the official month to take a kid fishing? Thats rite every year the Parks and Wildlife Dept set up a special weekend for you to take a kid fishing and if you don't have your license well thats OK to because everyone gets to fish that weekend for free, and now that you know then theres no reason to not take your kid and any of his or her friends with you so get out on the water.

Now here is what you can expect when you go fishing. Most all your lakes are at full pool and you will find Lakes Palestine and Fork about the same Fork is at near full pool and Lake Palestine is about four inches low, the lake is clear for the most part on the south end and stained to muddy up north. Fishing overall has been very good from large mouth bass to catfish. Now here is what you can expect to find your fish doing most all month long.

Bass will be good up north in the creeks and on the river where you find grass along your channels and in or near the sloughs that run off the main channels. The best lures to use will be yellow magic poppers, Mr. Twister Hawg Frogs and the all time famous Shimmy Shaker in the blue fox color. Fish each of these lures early and late for best results.

Down south you will find bass doing very good on your main lake points and back up in your main lake pockets and creeks. The best lures will be the Shimmy Shakers in the blue fox color and yellow magic poppers early and late, in the mid day when it begins to get hot go to a big crank bait or a Carolina rig using a French fry in a water melon color.

Remember that you can go home a winner if you fish slow, cover your water well and present your lures in a manner that looks normal to the fish.

Crappie can be caught in water depths of 14 to 18 feet of water where you find brush or some sort of structure. Bridges offer lots of good cover and are very good places to find crappie after the spawn is over. The best baits to catch your crappie on are the Mr. Minnows made by and distributed by the fine makers of the Mr. Twister Lures. The Mr. Minnow is one of the very best crappie jigs I think I have ever fished in all my years of fishing. They come in several colors so get by your local tackle store and ask for them by name ask for the Mr. Minnow made by Mister Twister lure company.

If you out on lake Palestine and run short of your Mister Twister Products then stop in at The Lake Palestine Resort he carries several Mister Twister products for you to choose from.

Sand bass will be good early and late in June working your main lake points with Rat-L-Traps and chrome/blue and jigging spoons.

Catfish will be good in the shallows on punch bait and liver around brush or docks. Fish slow work your areas good and you will always go home the winner.

Until next month remember to keep only the fish you can use and release the rest so that our kids to can enjoy the great sport we call fishing
