Access: Many ways of access. Bank accessibility: 95% of bank is accessible by path. Pressure: moderate Water: Clear. Vegetation: pond is a soft bottom pond with underwater grass mats. This makes the water vary clear. Baits for bass: since the water is so clear and there is vegetation below the water, you should think natural. Depending on other conditions will determine baits. - topwater (popper, spook, and buzzbait) silver in color with black back or other natural colors. In the back of the pond near the creek might be a good spot for hollow body frog. - moving baits (spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, shallow trap, blade baits, swim jigs, swimbaits, and more) in natural colors. White/shad/shiner/gizzard colors -soft baits (speed tail, Curly tail, senkos, flukes, and more) keep them suspended and out of the thick. Bass were chasing baits and I was using a weightless fluke as a follow up bait. Natural colors. For worms I prefer watermelon red flake, red shard curly tail, or other natural colors. White flukes. Weightless will be your friend on 8-12 lb clear line (mono/Fluoro or leader) Fish activity: fish seemed yo be against structure. There are aerators, duck houses, fountains, reeds, a dam, and even some grass/mossy slop mats.

This lake is my bottom B!t¢#

This lake is my not-so-secret honey hole; It consistently produces bass over 4#. All the people complaining about it being shallow and murky obviously don’t know how to catch fish in shallow, muddy water. I have caught fish on the bank, in a kayak or using a fly rod. Aside from monster bass, you can also catch sizable cats and carp. I have won an all Texas water fishing tournament on this lake.
