Hopefully someone will post some usable current fishing tips but Granbury is a tough bass lake for me. Find the sandbass and the grandkids can have a blast. Went a week ago and went from Rough Creek ramp all the way up the Brazos River way above Tin Top just sight seeing with my wife. Beautiful....except the wakeboard boats! You’ve really got dodge the breakers that come off those boats.

Rick,
Take them boys down the road and go to Squaw. They will have a lot better chance with bass if that is what they are shooting for.

Texas rigged 7” .Berkeley blue fleck power worms are a constant for kids to catch squaw bass. Grownups too for that matter.

To fish Granbury, you have to be finished by 8 - 8:30am on Saturday and before noon on Sunday. Wife and I were out on Sunday after lunch and there were 5 - 6 ft waves from the wake boats. The lake never stops moving as the waves just bounce from one side of the lake to the other. There is very little natural bank to absorb them as 99% of the shore has a bulkhead. You have to stay in the marked highway or you will sink your boat. I have seen it happen. A boat sinking is amazingly quiet.

Fish docks and retaining walls. The lake has bouys from the dam to the river. Very few places you need to actually follow them

I live on the lake and if you're unfamiliar with the lake, I agree 100% to follow the channel markers. There's some places if you're 200ft off of the marker, you're in trees and I don't mean little willows but huge 1 foot diameter trunks. It's amazing to watch the wake boats go flying through a forest with no care in the world and many of these trees are only a foot under the surface. During the drought, many owners along the shore tried to go out and chain saw down these trees and were fined by the Brazos River Authority saying it's "their property".
Just be careful...

It's been so tough lately that I haven't even gone out. Crappie are good on minnows in 15 feet in the trees, bass are the slowest I've ever seen. Combine the flooding over the fall/winter with the 100 degree days and you can understand. We've been out twice and skunked both times. Caught 70 crappie one day and while fishing for them, had a school of sand bass pop up all around us but it's been unusually slow this year. Haven't caught a striper this year. Hoping it starts picking up with the temperature changes in September and we get back to normal.
