Myself and fishing buddy Steve fished Lake Bastrop this past Thursday! We fished from 7am till 2pm. We launched our Kayaks at South Shore Park and fished that area. The Hydrilla is thick but we did manage to find several nice places that were holding some nice fish. Fish were in 8 to 12 feet of water. We caught around 50 fish and we had to work for em. Copper Nose Bluegill in the 8 to 9 inch range, Redear in the 8 to 10 inch range,a few Redbreast in the 9 inch range, and several bass in the 1 to 3 pound range rounded out the catch. Fish were fat and full of fight. All fish were released to fight again. The best time of the bite was between 11am till 1pm. Curly Tail Grubs Chartreuse/Black and Gulp Alive Minnows Chartreuse got the best results. We also caught fish on the Gulp Alive Leaches. Plan on fishing Bastrop a lot more! woot

Good stuff Laker...Not quite as far a drive as Fayette...How would you say this lake compares to Fayette ? The water looks very similar...

Bastrop has more Hydrilla beds than Fayette. Fayette on the other hand has more stick ups, and coves. To me Fayette is easier to fish and it seems that the fish are more active by the reed beds on Fayette than on Bastrop. As for fish, the quality is the same. As for numbers Fayette by far! The more time you fish a water body the numbers will usually go up. Bastrop is a nice lake and I am sure there are plenty of sunnies there. Just have to find them and learn the lake better! woot


Gitter: The boat traffic was very light. There was only a few trailers at the ramp when we left!

Thanks Laker! Years back I fished Bastrop for bass and did pretty good. Always love reading post from other water bodies. Brings back memories.
