For active fish, spinner baits and crank baits are most fisherman's choice. A variety of watermelon green plastic worms seems to work well during the hotter months fished in grass. Early morning top water baits are just about anything that floats. Normally Poppers, Prop Baits, Flukes, or just about any Stick Bait.
Vegetation is sparse on Lake Conroe. Fish are more active during the fall, winter and spring months due to the cooler weather. Fish are active much longer during daylight hours and are normally found in shallow water early morning and late afternoon
Channel catfish are good year-round, Use cut shad or smelly bait.
Bluegill fishing is great just about year around on live worms or crickets.. Target rip pap in deeper water (8ft or more) near start of slope.
Some Lake Hotspots are: Star Step Ridge... use dark Carolina Rigged plastic worms, drop shot with long cast. Bridge Cove Point...use dark plastic worms and crankbaits along docks. Tuckers Ponds...use watermellon plastic worms and lizards on beds.
