West Point in Mustang Creek
Location #1, #2, #2b, #3
There is no grass in the back of Big Mustang Creek – Bob Roberts 2/17/19
South Pocket West of West Point – A great place in Big Mustang is west and south of the previously mentioned long point location #2. This area here contains a pocket that has a little gut that runs into it. Notice where the creek bends, these fish will move up here right through that gut and hold there. This pocket has a tree line running up the middle of it to about 2/3 of the way to the back of it.
Timing: March pre-spawn and spawn
What to Do: Fish every bit of this water. Be aware that that the fish will move in to spawn and they will follow this tree line. Fish this tree line with a jig, Carolina rigged lizard or a Texas rigged lizard. The back 1/3 of the pocket is where this tree line stops. You will also want to notice the vegetation growing around the shore-line. If you go back there throw the watermelon super fluke. If this cove is in a pre-spawn mode throw the suspended rogue. If the bass are bedding, catch them with the bubblegum 6″ Gene Larew Hog Crawl.
Location: #2 & #2b
You don’t ever want to fish Mustang with out fishing this point. This would be the location where the creek wraps around the point due west of Kidney Creek. The creek here just hugs this bank. Everybody fishes here. You can catch an eight and half pound fish in here in late March when it’s got the good grass on it. It’s good along this point and back to the east and south. You can fish it with a variety of lures. Know this, you are fishing a major creek bending around a long point with trees and vegetation located all around it. Add to this bait fish and you will catch fish feeding and schooling here in the early fall. This area will be an area that holds fish through much of the year. Let the season pattern tell you exactly how and where to fish this. This is an outstanding structure all around this long land point. Now don’t overlook the area east and south of location #2 where it goes south all the way into that small cove area where the fence is. All up and down that bank is a good spawn area that produces some good fish there. This area is a good area to catch 8-½ lb. Fish.
Timing: You can start fishing this in Late March.
What to Do: Use top waters with propellers, rattle traps and slow falling super flukes in this area. Throw spinner baits in here and also throw the Hawg-Craw in there. Pre-spawn is 52 to 60 degrees water temperature-throw red rattle traps, chartreuse/white spinner baits, suspended rogues, and black/blue jigs. During spawn (at 64 degrees water temperature) your best shot in here is a lizard-either Texas or Carolina rigged.
Long extended point.
Timing: March pre-spawn and spawn.
What to Do: Fish with Rattle traps and white spinner baits.
