Head now to Lake Tenkiller for some hot sand bass action.
Large schools of sand bass were surfacing this past weekend and anglers were having a great time catching big sandies on top-water.
“It was like Texoma of old,” said Gene Gilliland of Norman, who was fishing a black bass tourney on Tenkiller, located north of Gore in northeastern Oklahoma.
Anglers were catching sand bass weighing 2 and 3 pounds along shallow humps and points. Hordes of threadfish shad were spawning on the lake and the sandies were chasing.
Now is the time for threadfin shad to spawn, and other likes such as Broken Bow could see the same kind of white bass action in the near future.
