Big Texas Bass


Recommended Posts

This is my Home Lake when I am down there. I have a 10.34lb one from travis. It can be a good numbers lake and also can be a lunker lake. And some days it just stinks, with no bites. Lake is a lot like Lake of the Ozarks. Just clearer water, 12 to 15' clear some times .

The 16.4 mentioned in the article must be the one that the Milliken Fishing Youtube channel just posted. Their best 5 that day went almost 60#! A 16.4, two 12s and a bunch of 6-9 pounders. Josh Jones (the Garmin guy) has been posting a bunch of studs lately too. He posted one that was in the 15# range a few days ago. That brutal period of cold must have stacked those giant sows up like cord wood down in Texas!

Sounds like everything is coming from the same lake too. You can bet that place is going to get absolutely pounded to death now!

I lived in Texas for about 8 years.  We did some work retreats to Travis and would do guide trips.  Caught a lot on grubs but nothing big.  From what I remember some years it was super low and others full pool.  That part of Texas is so dependent on rainfall for normal levels.  I had no idea it had bass in it that size it would have asked to change the way we fished!

Been there over 28 years now and the lake is not a constant level lake, Part of the Highland Lakes chain. Mansfield Dam power plant, Lake is a flood control lake not a constant level lake. Can be 30 ft high or during the 4 year drought, several years ago was over 50 ft + low.
