Default lake tawakoni Blackbass??????

Hey Guys

Just thought I would ask. I have been going to lake tawakoni this year because we have a camper there now and for the life of me I can't seem to catch any blackbass in the lake ( Sorry I did catch 1) lol but it seems to me that I have either lost my touch or that dang lake is not easy when it comes to blackbass. Do any of you know any tricks or tips you can give me to help catch blacks on this lake. color lures worms or any advice would be great
Thanks

I would try a rage tail shad on a 5 ought wide gap hook. Run that puppy at different depths starting shallow and going to about 5' deep and as parrallel to the bank as you can get. Vary your retrieve and even stop in once in awhile. Do this toward evening around any stumps you can see.
Maybe, if you catch her in the right timeframe, you will put the first fish from that lake into the share a lunker program...
I caught a 4 last night off the bank using this technique in Lake Houston and it it is fairly similar to your lake; stumpy, no grass, fairly shallow etc...
Try it!

That lake fishes tough. In our tourney a few months ago we only managed 1 dink off the dam. We hit docks, coves and grass with no luck Big bass came from the pads next to the ramp at duck cove.

I have not fished that Lake in years. We used to camp there when the kids were young because the campground we would stay at had a waterpark. I used to kill them on a buzzbait around the boat docks that had grass around them. If it get's to tough remember lake Fork is not that far from there

If you are after black bass, you should obey by T Wok law...."If you aint kicking up mud with your trolling motor, you are fishing too deep!!!"
The lake has been really tough this year for everyone. Try spinner baits

That is true. I have always heard that the bass never go deeper then 5 feet on that lake.

That’s true in a lot of lakes were stripers are the dominate fish. They know if the move out deep they become the bait.
