I can tell you that Belton can be very tough at times to fish for LMB.
And if your going on the weekend, watch out for the Temple park area, lots of jet skiers, para sailers, etc.
And they are oblivious to anything around them.
As for the lake, it has very steep banks in a lot of the areas. You can be ten feet from the shore, and be in 20 feet of water. And the middle is pretty deep.
Not a lot of vegetation
, and I seemed to have best luck flipping the docks and houseboat areas.
Don't get me wrong, I love Belton, much better then my home, Lake Waco.
