I don't see many posts regarding the fishing on LBJ. We just got a place in Kingsland and have been trying to learn the fishing on the lake. All I have been able to catch are perch and gaspergoos mostly. Hopefully when the temperature cools down the white bass and crappie will begin to bite soon. I hear under the bridges are good, but no luck so far. Any pointers?

Thanks.

There is a tourney there this Saturday, so most might be tight lipped until then, if I remember I will gladly give you a report afterward. Some basic information, find grass deeper than 2' fish your favorite plastic in and through the grass and to the outer edge. Good Luck!

My experience on LBJ is hit or miss. Docks are good and hold fish, but getting them to bite is an issue. Weed beds are good and as JR said the grass is good. Have fun!!!

Thanks for the info. Yes I have been trying around the docks some but only blue gill. I'll take your advise and try the weed beds and grass.

JR, where did you hear of the tourney? I cant find any reference to it.

Thanks again!

LBJ is a gorgeous lake and could easily become my go to lake. LBJ is like any new lake, you are going to have to learn it. I like that lake, but I've only fished it once. We got into a mess of white bass that were surface feeding and that was enough to make me want to go back.
I would start out with either a Hot Spot map or a fishfinder chip so you can see where the fish attractors, drop offs and the contours are. I'm assuming that you are fishing by boat. I don't know much about the bottom of the lake, but your FF should help there, especially if you have side/down imaging. I wouldn't mind having a partner to fish LBJ, PM me if you are interested. I don't know much about the upper end, we put in at the yacht club by the dam which is a very nice ramp.

I am definitely going to have to learn the lake. I am fishing by boat, but using a lowrance fishfinder from 2006 with no side/down imaging. May have to upgrade! I will look into the hot spot maps also. Last time I was on the lake I did see some fish surfacing, probably small white bass unfortunately I was not able to stop quick enough and throw a line because the kids were on the tube.

We hit LBJ today. Boated 30+ bass and had fun doing it. I caught mine on top water and my buddy caught his on a lizard. We fished docks and walls. We found out that they were not in the back of the canals, they were just off main lake under docks and on the corners where walls come together. Nothing big enough to write home about but a lot of fun.

I would love to boat 3 bass, never mind the 30 FishKen pulled in. We hit LBJ last Sunday morning, then again Saturday evening and yesterday Morning. Fished mainly down near Sunrise beach in the main lake around docks and walls. Nothing expect a good blue gill and 2 lb catfish under a light. I cant figure out what I am doing wrong and my son is getting a little discouraged with me. Heck, I am getting a little discouraged with me. Might as well and stay home with him and play xbox! I just continue to hope the cooler weather will change their appetites.
