Toughest yet most rewarding of my local lakes
Avatar of thedustytexan

Lake Woodlands is the first lake I’ve had to study and learn to be able to consistently catch fish. There are some seriously monsterous Largies hanging out in the north end, and plenty of catfish hanging out everywhere. The concrete banks on the north end produce quite consistently with large plastics and squarebill cranks. There’s lots of broken rock and structure along the edges they like to sit in. Most of my strikes come from twitching the bait off the top of a rock and it gets hit on the fall.
