Toledo Bend Fishing Report-March 2010


As of February 28, 2010 the lake level on Toledo Bend is 171.66 but the lake is on the rise which should put a large number of fish up around the bushes. The water temperature is in the low to mid fifties and should continue to creep up higher as the month progresses. The fishing has been kind of slow for the past couple of weeks but is starting to pick up. Within a week or so the action should be wide open as the fish hit the banks. The month of March is generally a good time to pick a bank and put the trolling motor down. A Texas Rigged lizard or brush hog with a pegged 1/8 oz. weight is almost the only bait I throw this time of year. I almost always use a  Power Tackle PG-144-7’0” with 15 lb. fluorocarbon on my Texas Rig. If the wind blows or it is overcast you can generally throw either a double willow or a colorado willow spinner bait in white or white/chartreuse. I try to throw the spinner bait on windy banks or points if possible. As long as the water continues to rise or remains stable flipping in the bushes is a great way to target better quality fish. Most of the time I target the bushes with a PG-104.5 with 50 lb. braid and a 3/8 oz. weight. The bait does not seem to matter a whole lot as long as its watermelon or green pumpkin but I usually start with a tube or brush hog. I almost always fish from about eight foot to the bank during the months of March and April. Try targeting the inside grass edge or the outer edge of the hay grass. Most of the bushes I flip are usually about one to three feet deep.

Good luck on the lake!
