I received a tip that this Harris County park was good for catching bass. It's a good sized pond--about 200 acres, which they plan to expand to 465. The maximum depth is 32 feet, though the water is low right now. The park is relatively new. I think they opened it in 2017. Over the last several years they report stocking the pond with around 100,000 fingerling size bass.

I spent nearly five hours out there yesterday, from about 8:00 am to after 1:00 pm. I tried every kind of lure... Texas rigged worms and craws, crankbaits, chatterbaits, spinner baits, wacky rigs, ned rigs... Didn't get a single bit or even a nibble. A few people I met said they had caught catfish.

I'm just wondering if anyone here has ever caught bass there, or am I wasting my time?

Thanks.

Talk about a big lake for a park! Looks like a possibility in 2-4 more years. Can you put a kayak in? Little far for me but might send the boys over to scout it.

This time of year, I’d try early in the morning or late in the evening or night. Midday bassin’ isn’t going to be so great unless you’re chasing them offshore on structure. Might be worth it getting out predawn and throwing some big surface baits.
