Tried to fish Lake Holbrook today. First time for us. Beautiful little lake, but we blanked on fishing. Wondering if my graph temperature sensor is working properly - it showed between 93 and 98 deg. Is the lake really that warm? Also, any tips on fishing? Would love to go back.

Thanks!

I love that little lake, but it gets lots of pressure.

My best fish there have been taken on the west side especially if you can get thru to the other side of the road. I have had luck with finesse rigs on the docks. The south side has some reeds over by the apartments that are good for spinnerbaits.

I've caught lots of fish there, but most were small.

I've done well fishing squarebills and senkos in the far north end. Be REALLY careful up there. Trim your motor up all the way and idle slow. There are a bunch of stumps just below the surface.

In the summer (now) you'll often see them schooling up there. If you can get into a school with a crank, you can catch a bunch really quick

One of my favorite lakes in East TX. I have ran a few trips there in the summer for as long as I can remember.I go there for fun fishing also.

Most of the points there have brush pile's on them that hold lots of fish. Use you electronics to find them. Look for schooling fish mid lake in the mid morning and later afternoon.

Lots of these fish are 2-5 lbs. Stay away on weekends if possible lots of skiers running around and the wave action is crazy.

The north end has some great top water action early and lots of boat houses up there have brush on them also.

Lots of timber up there also as mentioned so be careful.Square bills and chatter baits are good all over the lake.

Good Luck Next time hope you get them.
