Any suggestions on catching the biggest fish in the Lake?

I am going to get the lake C&R record and looking for info to get me in the right direction.

What would you do if that was your goal? Areas to fish? Baits? Strategies?

If your info helps me become King of the Rock I will give you full credit when I do my acceptance speech.

Thats one approach.

I was thinking live crawfish on some off shore structure. I feel you have to get out from where the bank fisherman can cast to get some un-pressured, offshore fish. Perhaps big swimbait on the same spot. Big Worm on a C-rig could be an option. Jig is always a big fish bait but I suck at jig fishing and lack confidence in it...so I like to fish what I feel confident in.

Someone told me the biggest fish are up the main creek. Not sure I buy that.

Fish the deepest part of the lake by the spillway.

Find the crappie and bass fish in the same area. You will likely get skunked most days. BASS had a tournament there back in the 90's and I think only one angler caught more than 1 fish. It's probably the worst bass lake in all of Texas, if not the southwest. You can catch more and bigger fish in a nearby golf pond probably.

Pitch to every styrofoam cup you see in the main creek.

Its a tough lake no doubt. BUT thats why I am getting the record. It means more because it is a fickle lover.

Deep water check! Bass with crappie check!

Too many of them to hit them all in a day.

The dam has always been good to me. Med/deep crankbait and shakey head.

Been fishing this lake for 20+ years. It can be tough for those people who are unfamiliar with this lake. My tip is let the wind be your friend! Fish the laydowns, but pitch to any weedbed, especially the ones that aren’t in clusters. Cattails, not yet! Give it a week. Fish evenings.

These are good tips. I am going back Saturday to resume my quest to be the King of the Rock.

Any recent reports or tips would be great! I will let you know how we do. There will be 4 of us going. We will be yakking. Might launch on the north end this time and get back into the creek some. Thoughts?
