I have seen posts about this lake being back up to normal levels now and that the ramp is good now after all the rain we had. I have been waiting on it to get better since i bought my boat and this weekend will be my first time out there. I have never even seen this lake before and i live in Joshua. Hell, i didnt even know there was a lake there until about 6 months ago. Is there anything I need to watch out for in this lake? Any major stumps or anything that is tricky to manuver around that i wont be able to see because of the risen water level? Any thing i need to watch for? I have been to some of the other lakes around here (Benbrook, Whitney, Cleburne) when the water was low so i could see where structure was before it filled up some.

No stumps to worry about the east side around the point gets shallow a ways out, but with the lake up it should be no problem.

I was out there late Sunday evening with the wife and kid for about two hours and caught several BB at the far south east end of the lake. We were using a chart/white buzz bait and a pearl white Zoom Super Fluke in the shallow grass. The wife was using a LG View cell phone that caught NOTHING!!! smirk

It has been at least ten years sense I have fished there (haven't owned a boat in this time). I plan on going back tomorrow and will give a report ASAP.

I have fished Whitney, Cleburne and Alvarado so far and Alvarado sure has helped with my confidence building.

I hope it can do the same for me. I havent really lost my confidence because i havent been ripping fish out of the water on every outing because i am still very new to this and im learning alot. But it would be nice to go somewhere where the body of water is smaller and where fish bite, so you can catch something. I havent had very good luck on cleburne and whitney is sooooo big i dont really know where to go. I have caught sand bass in whitney over by the white bluffs but havent found the bass yet, and i have caught some fish down at Cleburne but it was hit and miss.

CWCW - I fished Alvarado again this morning. I did't find em' in the same place, but I did do well again flipping a jig n pig around the docks and spinner bait between the docks. I was sure the top water bite would be on again with total cloud cover this morning, but I was wrong and learned another lesson on the fly (fish don't play by the rule book). I took a pic. of one of the fish I caught with my phone, but I'm not smart enough to post it yet. She was about 4.5 lbs. grin

Hero - I did the rattle trap thing parallel with the bank trying to catch the jumpin' little bastages! I thought it would be on like Donky Kong, but I was wrong (didn't catch a one). I guess they were running shad up. The bait fish was very small and silver.

Is shad the bait of choice at Alvarado and is there a good population of sand bass?

Thanks for the tip!!!!!!!

Would sand bass be in a lake that small that doesnt have a connecting river? I aways assumed sand bass were more of a river fish that were in bigger lakes or ones that had river access. Like Granbury, PK, and Whitney or a lake that was pretty substantial in size. Anyone else know if Alvarado has sandies? Im used to chasing sandies up river in the brazos north of Whitney.

Alvarado has some nice sandies but I don't think there is a ton of them.
