Guys, me and a buddy are wanting to catch some smallies. We haven't ever caught one and it's on our list. Where can we catch some big ones in or close to Texas? I know big might be a relative term when they pump out 5lb plus up north but I really don't know what to expect. I always hear they like the cold better so is winter the best time or some other time? I'm really not looking for spots, baits, etc. I would appreciate any help, but give me
a lake name and I will catch them.

Don't know how far you want to drive but I like Broken Bow Lake (OK) for smallies.

Broken Bow and lake Murray are my favorites. The brownies are lots of fun and good fighters but 5 lb'ers are rare around here.
I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don’t have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don’t have a curfew I have a driver’s license and my own car. The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant. And I have a bass boat.
Life is great!

Lake Belton has some good smallies. Best place for smallies I know of in central Texas.
