Toledo Bend - TX,Huxley
April 2014 fishing forecast

Great news! Huxley Bay Marina is back in full operation. The restaurant has been completely renovated and is serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some of the rooms at the motel have also been renovated. The marina has 30 R.V. spots and 42 covered floating boat slips with power and secured gates. Live bait, fishing supplies and convenient store supplies are also available. Donít forget, the marina is only one of a few that has a deep- water boat ramp where you can access the main lake at low water conditions. Itís great to see the enthusiasm the new owners, Buck and Sandy, are putting into the rejuvenation of the marina.

The lake is in good shape with plenty of water. Itís been holding about three feet below high pool.

Spring has sprung, the weather is pleasant and weíll be catching a lot of fish across the board in April. You can tell we had a long cold winter this year. One measure is the price of crawfish; they were running as high as $8.00 a pound in March in our neck of the woods, ouch! Those Mudbugs just didnít want come out of the ground as winter hung on later than it should. As such, the spawn is starting later this year so we should still have plenty of fish in the shallows.

April is usually a transition month with a lot of fish already spawned and moving back into deeper water. Some bass will still be on the beds and in shallow water while others will have spawned and will be moving back out to deeper water. Moving off the beds they will try to find a comfortable environment where they can recuperate from the spawn and gradually move into their summer haunts. The bass will migrate along the creeks, ditches and secondary points; so concentrate in these areas especially areas that have some type of structure or cover. A variety of baits will be productive from top water plugs, buzz baits, spinner baits, frogs, jerk & swim baits, Rat-L-Traps, shallow to mid diving crank baits, finesse plastics and your variety of worms, lizards and jigs depending on the area you target your fish.

Usually in the latter part of April the Bream will start moving into shallow water for their spawn. An ultra-lite spinning rig, cane or glass pole and a bucket of crickets or worms will surely fill up a chest of big ole bream. Look for ďhoney-coneĒ circles in the shallows to locate the beds.

Look for the Crappie in the backs of the coves and pockets. If you donít find them shallow, follow the points and bends in the creeks as they head back out to deep water.

The White bass are finishing up their spawn in the river proper and are heading back into the main lake. Some of the best fishing can be had this time of year as they bunch up on the north end sand-bars. Slab spoons, tail spinners, Rat-L-traps or live crawfish work best.
