Intend to launch around 7:30 AM. Fish here a lot during warm months. Never fished winter. Will be targeting crappie on a few key areas including brush piles. Often catch respectable LM bass (unintended). Lake has good size sand bass, catfish and even carp. I am a fisher & only part time catcher, but if you show up I can tell you what I know about parts of this small lake. I will be in either a yellow Hobie PA 14 or a large aluminum canoe w/electric motor. Small lake, no wake permitted, single lane nice launch ramp; room for about 12 vehicles, maybe 5 or 6 with trailers. Not too much activity at launch ramp during warm months, so I don't expect any parking issues during winter. Hope to see some of you out there. - D.L.

Brad, Barry, all sounds good. Barry, there are 3 major brush piles I'm aware of, during warmer months one out produces the others hands-down (don't know why). There's also another area that I found by total accident that attracts crappie - I think significant timber scattered across the bottom there. I'll likely start with jigs, but might transition to minnows in more open water and move around slowly. If all that fails all go to long line trolling crankbaits, but usually often results in LM bass (warmer months). - D.L.

Hi all, 3 total canoe/kayaks Sunday on Cedar Lake (Cleburne State Park). Met hobie14 (Barry) for first time. I was in my aluminum canoe w/electric trolling motor. Couldn't buy a bite on minnows or jigs on favorite two brush piles, or in fish bay. Ended up with the old stand-by, long line trolling Rapala shad raps in deep water. Caught 2 solid sand bass, largest exceeding lake record - approximately 1.5#, 15.25 inches. Certified scale I was sent to, Bubba's Bait & Tackle, Alvaredo, was non-operational and hadn't been since 2014! Oh well. Still a yummy sand bass. Fishing overall slow. Surface water temp 49.6 degrees. Marked bait balls & groups of larger fish in deepest water. Occasional bass breaking surface. Became breezy out of South, but manageable. The new floating fishing pier adjacent to the launch ramp is beautiful. There's a dedication ceremony there at the end of February with some fishing activities. Saw lots of deer on way into park. Remains very nice park, quiet place to fish. Several groups of hikers walking around lake. - D.L.

Missed this this weekend
I was the third boat out there in the Jackson Cuda at the dam
Got on the water at the first ray of light and caught a few bass in the first 30 minutes and then it shut down.
Thought it was going to be a great morn.... Wait... It was just being out there

Just an FYI, if you catch a water body record, you can send the scale that you weighed it on off to be certified and submit it to TPWD. IGFA will do it for $40 if I remember correctly....
