Fished Saturday from 7:00-2:00. Water stained, 73 degrees. Winds 15+ from the South.

Started the morning in Jones Creek. Caught a 2.5 lber at about 8:00 on a brush hog. Braved the wind and moved to the midlake cove I had fished last weekend. Ended up with two 3 lbers and a 4-3. All on brush hogs in bushes, except for one dink caught on bluegill pattern crankbait.

The ride back to the state park on the South shoreline was sketchy to say the least (3+' waves across the entire main lake, and I'm in a 17' boat). No crowd at the ramp, which was greatly appreciated.

The two closest brushes with death I've had on the water were both at Tawakoni. That's an angry lake when the wind is up. Lots of ramps out there. Pick a section of lake and launch and stay there and avoid the main lake if the wind says 15 or higher. Lots of fish to be caught all over that lake.Well done Drew

Jones creek is a good ride from the State park

Sounds like a fun day of fishing.

I had nearly the exact same rough water experience out there about 7 years ago. Had just got my previous boat (1 year old Legend Alpha 199). It was the maiden voyage and my cousin came with me that day to practice for Champs which was the next weekend. We launched in State park knowing there was a big front coming later in the day which was forecast to hit about 3:00. We had run East and were in Cedar and had been hitting all the pockets and flooded willows. Then about 11:30 we say, what's that noise, all realized that front was 3 hours early. Wind was howling NW at about 30. We decided its time to run the gauntlet back to State Park. Just like you - there were 3 footers. Funniest part is we make it across with just some white knuckles and elevated heart rates only to relax as I point the boat South towards the ramp and WHOOSSH....speared a wave in 10' of water and we were both soaked and the bilge pumps took care of the rest.

Where are the areas of the lake that timber is bad where you don’t want to run?
I’m going this weekend

Jones Creek feeds into Soutwest branch of the lake. Due West of the state park.
