It has it's moments like every lake. Lake Tyler is nothing like Fork and takes a bit to learn so don't give up easily on it. There are some big fish in it. There really are not many stump fields and you can run it pretty easily. This time of year dock fishing will do well and later in the day move off main lake points and humps with a 10" worm or deep crank. There are lots of brush piles all over both lakes working them usually gets ya bit. Start out in the brush you find with a smaller profile like an ultra vibe speed craw or a strike king rage craw. I like to use a 1/8 oz weight with these baits. Look for these pile in 10' or less. When over 10' I like to up my weight to a 1/4 with a larger profile bait. Also, there is lots of shoreline grass that you can pull a spinner bait or chatter bait through with some success. Good luck out there.
