Fished Granger a few times with one of the locals, Big Zee, and still didn't do that great. The ones we caught were pretty poor looking. Granger has had a lot of fishing pressure over the years, and I fear it may be on it's way down.
Forget Lake Austin. Too many druggies and alcoholics on jet fleas and wake boats Travis has some big catfish, you just have to find them. I work on Lake Travis and as soon as I can get caught up with my business, I want to try baiting some holes and then going back and fishing them. There are a ton of coves and creeks that branch off the main lake with thousands of private boat docks. I think baiting around them would be productive, but I just haven't had a chance to do it yet.
I've been told the narrows is pretty good but it's a long boat ride from where I store my boat and I'm not comfortable leaving my truck and trailer in an unattended parking area. Pace Bend may be OK to put in at, but it's a high recreation area with a lot of boat traffic.
