    It's been two months since I've been out at the barge. I usually call, but they tell me that the fishing is really really slow. I can't see spending $7.00 and then not catching anything. So ya'll if any of you have been there in the past few weeks or days I would really appreciate it if you can tell me if you have caught anything. I am having withdrawals really bad.:eek:oooh:

    That old fishing barge has LOTS of history! I remember well the previous owner, Joe Jagoe. He was a great fellow that owned and operated the barge for many years. It's a well managed barge that does an excellent job catering to the public. Ole' Joe would be proud today to see his barge still going strong! Good fishing! Luke Clayton

    Luke Clayton here.
    You might try one-sixteenth ounce black/chartreuse jigs dropped vertically into the heavy brush, especially during low light conditions- ie. early morning. These fish will be on a subtle bite, so watch your line. I used to fish years back with the previous owner, Joe Jagoe, God rest his soul. He was one very nice gentleman and I never think of the LEWISVILLE FISHING BARGE wikthout thinking of my old buddy Joe.. I haven't fished here in years but remember the crappie bite to get really good during the coldest weather of the winter., Just watch your line and don't espect those crappie to jerk the rod out of your hands, though... GOOD LUCK!
