Best spot on Lady bird lake

I've fished this spot for 6-7 years now and I can say that this has been my most successful spot. there are fish everywhere and for the most part pretty big ones. I've hooked onto large catfish and bass (but usually broke off because I use 4lb line too often).this spot gives you access to two different bodies of water and ample bank fishing area. also there is two hour free parking which is often abused and on a good day there will be parking available. It's a great spot and honestly I don't care if you go to it because Jon B (massive YouTube fisherman) has shown my spot to like a million people lol. it's no secret anymore.

At first look at the water I had my doubts. Bc the entire bottom was covered in this long noodle looking grass. but turned out to be good fishing me and my buddy ended up with a total of ten fish with in a few hours off the bank. the hole park was very clean and well keeped up. The entrance lady that we checked in with was very nice and helpful. would love to go back when I have the chance.
