I appreciate that... Lakes can be so different, like Belton, theres places that hold fish in timber, but if you find brush in an area of timber, thats wnere they will usually be, you can fish a line of timber 75 yards long and hit every tree, and get nothing, but find a brushpile somewhere near it, and bingo.
And take lake waco, LOTTA old rotten standing timber, but very few areas hold fish,you gotta be in 14 feet or more.. They may be holding at 8 feet in 18 feet but wont be in 10 feet timber at 8 feet. Now bass, they will be in that shallow timber, I guess they own it.
some of the central texas lakes have mostly old cedar, some trees I bet have been where they are 50 years , they have a decent size center trunk, but the limbs dont usually grow very big, and the algea doesnt seem to grow on them much, so they dont hold baitfish or crappie much that I personally have found..
