Two of the lakes I fish, Alan Henry and Oak Creek have tons of cover. Especially, AH, the entire lake is basically the same everywhere. Maybe I'm just not a great fisherman but I have never found a spot that just produces more fish than others. It seems like all I can ever do is pick a fish off here and there going down the bank. Every once in a while I can catch two in the same bush. I also have never found anything off the bank at AH that produces. And I have spent hours trying to graph with my SI unit to find deeper fish schooled up. When I am catching them it's basically everywhere I go.
Now Lake Amistad is a completely different story. I've sat on a long point and caught tons of fish off of the exact same point. I've also found ledges and humps and coves where there are just way more fish than other places. Amistad is mainly a rocky lake with intermittent areas of grass and trees. Much different than AH or Oak Creek.
Lake Sweetwater, which is about 20 miles from Oak Creek, (and is practically dry now
) is much different as well. The dam holds a ton of fish, and there are certain docks where I can catch 10 fish and others where there are none. The reason is because some have piles of rock underneath and the rest are a soft bottom.
So my question is this... Is it possible that some lakes are harder to fish due to there being to much cover? Seems like all the lakes I fish that have much less cover it's easier to find and catch more fish.
