For big blue cats.... most lakes are capable of producing big fish. Just get fresh bait, and the best time to go is December-march

Tawakoni and Texoma come to mind first.

But, a couple of sleeper lakes are Lake Worth, WRIGHT Patman, the Sabine River just above Toledo bend...

A few honorable mentions too: belton, Livingston, Lewisville, Cedar Creek, Cooper and Arrowhead.

TEXAS is blessed with some great water for Big blues.

If you live close to Livingston I’d learn it first. Great Lake.

livingston is a big lake with a lot of food, I’m sure it’s got some monsters in it, but at nearly 90,000 acres you’re best off taking it one section at a time.
