Want advice from experienced offshore guys. I marked several spots on one of my home lakes where I’d start graphing. Trying to find where on these areas that would hold fish. It’s Aquilla Lake, central TX.

Y’all grade me on my spots. I do understand that I would now how to graph over these and find where the fish would actually be within these areas.

See if I’m on the right track.

You really need to spend some time and fish each place.

I am semi electronically challenged, only having early side imaging on my boat but I've found good spots for 40 years by marking a map, then spending time at each one noting the ones that had potential.

Yep. Gotta get out and check them slowly and check them often. Find the spot on the spot that holds fish consistently. AND THEN TELL NOBODY.

I will be glad to help you on your questions about the areas; but only one of those screen shots have the DEPTH on the screen shots. Blow up your areas a little more and the depths will appear.

The trick now is not finding THE spot but finding the fish and figuring out how to get them to bite and that presentation can change daily with pressured fish. Thats not a very big lake so maybe take less time but the spots you marked are very obvious and I'd guess have been picked over well by the DFW guys and that lake has gotten pounded during lockdown. Whats different today than years ago is there are lots more good fisherman and todays mapping and sonar have made finding those honey hole spots much much easier, on a lake that size there really are no more secrets.

I would say dont only concentrate on the river swings. The top 2 left pics I would say there are 25+ spots I would be graphing. Especially around the levee ridge/pond dam. Never fished the lake, looks interesting. Look for less obvious spots. Sometimes they stack up on long slow tapering drops as well as the sharp drops. Other times I have noticed it may only take a 3-5' drop. Most important fish will be near the depth the bait are holding at.
