Never been on the lake. Just moved to Austin and Lake Travis is getting tiring with all the dinks. Bastrop is similar. I've heard the average size is better at LBJ and it's closer to me than anything except Travis. I'm used to fishing Fork, Twok, Ray Bob etc, and these deep clear no cover no grass lakes are driving me nuts! Any help? PM me if you don't want it on here. Best place to put in coming from 1431 to Marble Falls? Docks? Grass? Running it? Anything will help!! Thanks!!

Google Cottonwood Shores it’s off 2147, or go to Kingsland Community Park off of Eul Moore Dr. in Kingsland. More docks than you can fish in a day. Grass very little if any, anymore. Running just watch for bouys about mid lake gets shallow real quick. Watch your graph!

Thanks guys...it's on tomorrow morning! As far as putting in, looks like it's either Cottonwood or the Lake LBJ yacht club ramp. Best depth if i'm not fishing docks? I don't have a paper lake map. Is it really deep like Travis or more like E. Texas lakes?

Following. Bought a house there this spring and I can't get em figured out for anything! Keep thinking I should find them stacked up on deepwater humps and ledges but so far I am a failure.

Granite shoals has a couple "neighborhood" launches. Learn how to fish docks

There's still plenty of grass in the lake, but it's not everywhere. There's 2 huge grass areas on the lower lake

The entire length of the dam is covered in grass.

Also, be prepared for the "witches hair" on this lake. It's everywhere.

square bills and T-rigged soft plastics are working pretty well. Every now and then you can hook a good one.

I was just there for 5 days. We smoked them fishing shallow rock early then heading to the docks once the sun got up. Light c rig on the rocks and a jig and whacky rig on the docks.

Also did really good one night fishing the lights.

Not deep like Travis. It's frustrating to fish bottom baits on that lake unless you're in grass or on a rocky bottom, which are few and far between. They are there, but you gotta use your Side Scan. There are brush piles on the lake too. During the Summer I usually go at night and fish dock lights. I don't fish there during the day very much in the Summer; September-May is when I fish during the day there. There are a few good offshore places on the lake, but not near as many as Travis. If you see rocks or a hard bottom out deep it's usually worth a few casts.

Depth doesn't really matter when it comes to docks on that lake. I've caught them on 10ft docks and 2ft docks. Look for isolated docks or docks that are irregular in a row of other docks. Docks that have a clean bottom are usually best. The fish will suspend above that snot grass. You just have to deal with it on that lake. It sucks but it is what it is. Topwater can be good in the morning or evening.

The grass is only on the lower end of the lake. There are several different types of grass but Hydrilla, Coontail, and Milfoil are dominant.

Thanks all! Hit the lake around 6:30. Put in at Yacht club and found some Lily pads. Caught 3 on frog. 2.5 biggest but looked like a good start. Hit the main point near and found out they have a HUGE bell that gongs! I almost soiled my shorts! Got a couple more on a square bill and did find the hydrilla but it was 11am, skiers everywhere, and getting hot. Fished hydrilla half hour and zeroed. Off the water at noon. 5 total. Cool lake. I like the water color and looks like this might be my go to lake rather than Travis. Need to do some map study and hit it during the week!
