Punch the hydrilla mats down by the dam with a big jig ...
Color of jig varies by the day
??? There is no hydrilla mats down by the dam. There was about 5 years ago but not in a long time. There is however a lot of flooded grass all along the shores of both lakes. It has been a very long time since I have seen that much bank grass and it is growing a long ways out off the banks. There are pads on the north ends of each lake and some good brush piles off main lake points and humps. All are producing somewhat but still tough out there.
There are lots of hotels in Tyler to stay at if there are no openings at the Marina. Good Luck out there.
