Fished LBJ with my dad yesterday and we only caught 3 small fish. We launched at 6:30 in the morning with 3ft swells at the end of the ramp. The waves were pretty much ripping down the entire length of the lake and they funnel in past the marina and right to the ramp We couldn't fish offshore at all so we just had to go fish docks that had been hit by the sun. Came back to the launch at 2:30 and right before I got off plane we came across a weird wave that may have been the biggest one I've seen on a lake! If I had to honestly guess how tall it was, I'd say it was 6 feet tall. The funny part of that experience is that we barely got wet from that wave. I think the boat hit it at the perfect angle. I'm not sure why the waves are at their worst right there by the ramp, just in that one little stretch. However, I have my guesses as to why: the waves have the entire length of the lake to build up and when they hit the shore and the marina, they rebound and meet back up with the waves that are still building and it creates what I call "water mountains". The two waves meet up and they look like a mountain. I'm just glad I'm able to get out there and fish a little.
Still not as bad as the waves on Pickwick Lake during the Summer....
