Fished Lake Conroe this weekend for the first time. I've heard the stories and this lake didn't disapoint!!! My buddy and I fished the Oakley Big Bass Tournament and it was incredible! All but a few hours took an 8+ to win with a 10.74 to win the whole thing. I'll be coming down here more now. Definitely one of the gems we have in Texas....you Houston folks take care of this pond, it's a dang good one!!!

Oh, the Oakley tournament was as well ran as any I've seen, Scott Gordon is a guy I have known for awhile and did a heck of a job. I'll fish it again for sure

Grew up fishing there a bunch, when you hit it right it can be awesome, they definitely live there. But kind of like your old stomping grounds, it knows how to humble you as well.

It sucks compared to what it used to be with hydrilla if that tells you anything. And it's still one of the better lakes we have in east texas. Congrats on a great weekend.

It was awesome with the hydrilla. Ten 30# stringers in Bassnbucks. Not a SAL since they killed the hydrilla. Still has some pretty heavy fish in it.

It was fun, and boy did the fish cooperate for some people. I've fished it several times and this year I finally had me a money fish on, got off at the boat, I laid down and almost cried, it was a good one.

See y'all next year!

WTF are you talking about? TP&W took care of this lake a few times now with thousands of grass carp.

Come back any weekend in the summer and you'll see how Houston takes care of this lake.

What an amazing weekend and it was great seeing so many North Texas anglers fishing this event as it is my favorite each year. I don't have the official total number of entries but it was close to (800) which was a significant increase over last year, and there would have likely been more had the weather forecast not been so bleak. I also applaud all of you that gutted it out today in the cold and relentless rain.

Lake Conroe did not disappoint as we saw a lot of big bass in the 6-8 pound range. The recent cold fronts pushed the bass off the beds, but those that either caught them or attended the weigh-in saw just how fat and healthy these bass actually were. Had we not had this stretch of cold weather this event could have turned into a sight fishing shootout! With the warming trend this week Lake Conroe is about to explode!

Ronnie, it was great seeing you again and you fished a great tournament. Thanks for the kind words! As always I can't wait until next year for next Oakley Conroe event. I will likely be back at Conroe on March 22nd hosting the next BLT at Stowaway Marina.
