Just purchased a home on Lake Granbury and getting back into fishing after a 20 year break ( fly fished instead). We went out for my first time this morning at sunrise to catch anything that would bite. About 3/4 of the way down the lake towards the dam, we started to fish the shallows and had shad jumping in all directions around us. Made a few casts and caught 7 fish, 6 of them largemouth and one a nice white bass. Was really surprised they intermingled like that. Mostly Rat L Traps and top water spooks. At 10am, it just shut down. Had a great time. Also, was able to break in my new boat, a Ranger 212LS Reata. Have wanted to own a Ranger since I was 10. Pretty happy with the day...

Hey, my father still has a house down there. If the bass aren't biting you can throw a doughball out on a hook and jerk catfish and carp in about hand over fist. 10 lbs of carp fight real good when you've no bass around.

Tons of shad in Granbury and like you said the fish run together. On a recent morning outing I'm throwing a yellow magic and caught black, white and striped bass in the same area. My go to plastic on Granbury is watermelon red zoom speed worm. Good luck out there

Thanks for the advice. Appreciate anything right now as I'm on a very steep learning curve. Big time changes over the last 15-20 years, especially electronics. We were down by the power plant and they just started popping the surface all around us.

Went out to granbury about a month ago. Didn't Catch anything of size but we caught probably 10-15 largemouth fishing boat docks (standing docks, not floating) and fishing steep rocky drop offs. Caught them on docks with a Texas rigged zoom z-craw with a 3/8 oz tungsten or caught them on the drop offs with finesse jigs. Hope this can help.... Granbury is a tough lake in the middle of summer especially because I don't enjoy fishing deep.


Thanking the lord for another day on the water

Probably small fish because of the golden algae bloom that occurred a few years ago took out most of the larger fish

Plenty of large fish to be had, just have to want to fish for them. Bank beating won't get it done. Look in 10- 15ft or so. That's not to say you can't pull some decent ones shallow, but your odds and number of fish caught will greatly increase if you do so.

Beating the banks will only get you tired , use your electronics.

Plenty of big fish in the lake...whether it's Large mouth, Striper, or Sandies. Deep bite is pretty good right now, you're likely to catch some of each kind on the same spot. wink

You guys are talking about fishing deep. This is my first summer with my own boat and summertime fishing has kicked my butt, probably because I am clueless on fishing in deeper (> 10') water. Any pointers or concepts you can share?

My first summer with my own boat as well. So far what I have learned is that if lit can find a long tapering point that extends a good way into the lake I start there. On my home lake If i position my boat in 18-22' of water and cast a Carolina rig on top of the point I can pull a few decent fish off of the edges of the point. Use a heavier weight (3/4-1oz) and about a 3' leader. Baby brush hogs in the color you are Most confident in. I must say, if you really wanna get good at fishing deep you MUST devote time to it. More often than not if I don't get a bite I head shallow and flip, which hurts in the long run

Deep on Granbury for me this year (12ft-28ft). Creek channel edges(steep sides), channel bends, points with structure, flats that drop into creek channel, and bluff wall banks. It will take time for the most part to find the sweet spot in these areas, but when you do they can be worth it. For me, C-rig, football jig, spoons, big cranks, and drop shot have worked. Let us know how it goes. wink

Some tips on fishing deep. I'm assuming you have a finder. Fire it up. Pull up your lake chart and pick an area you feel like fishing. Look in that area for some deeper structure like a point, hump, ledge or creek channel. Set a waypoint on the structure and go there, then idle over your waypoint looking at your graph.

Once you see something similar to this your in business.


That image is what fish suspended over a hump look like on the graph. Tie on a jig or worm and go nuts. Work drops and ledges from the bottom up, points from the top down, and humps from whichever way you like. Good luck, hope this helps!
