From surprise Hell YEAH,
just throw buzzbaits and spinner baits this weekend, especially if the wind is blowing,
once the cold settles in Alamo wil be a blade bait heaven with bigger fish and 50-100 fish days. the blade bait usually last the entire day as well.
on the cholla ramp ( not the ranger station ramp but the other one) just go straight across to the other side and start bangng the banks., you will be fishing the bank on your left and the really long points as well.
like red said its goig to be slow for a few days due to the cold front but when it sets in its going to be on fire.
almost every bank on that lake produces fish. shallow and deep.
Good post, I was just about to post the same thing... I'm going next weekend (10th or 11th) for the very first time and was wondering where to start off, but Del answered that one... Any other advice for an Alamo noob??
Wed am wife and I fished 4 hrs off bank at Pleasant. Not a fish. Didnt take the boat because of wind. Then decided mid afternoon to head over to Alamo to check out ramp locations camping etc. Used to fish it often in the 70 's. After checkin everything out we had less than an hour before dark to fish off shore. All hell broke loose. Wind was howling into the bank and first cast on spinerbait bait caught one. Caught another one two or three minutes later. Handed wife my pole with spinner bait and she said she had three hits. I put on a zara spook and caught two more and then another on a spinnerbait. No luck on a buzz bait . But five fish in half hour was great action and made the day after zip at Plez. What a great drive back to Wenden with the windows down 3/4 moon and finally a cool breeze. It was great.
def. worth the trip. i was up there til sat evening & had to leave due to motor troubles. but all day fri and sat was killin em. even w/ the wind blowin like it was, the fishing was way too good to pass up. main lake points in early am and the flats in the afternoon produced my dad and i over 60 fish per day w/ about 15 of those over the slot. cranks, flappin hogs, senkos and chatters were killin em on both days, even caught 8 slots burnin swims over grass beds.
