Can you run it easily or are there hazards? I think it has timber? Been a long time since I’ve fished it. What about coves? Any general fishing advice for fall? Thank you.

There are hard stumps from not very far west of the railroad bridge all the way to the Cypress end. You can run safely to the second bridge if you stay in the middle. There is a good running route on the south side also but, its tricky. The east Community cove point is shallow for a good ways out. There is a post on here that shows an aerial of the running lane. Hope this helps some.

Trim it high, if you cannot see it then you're good! JK


There is a lane in the "middle of lake", basically from the railroad bridge to 1519

Thanks for asking Frank, I was wondering the same thing.
Haven’t been in a long time and don’t want to tear up my new lower unit, LOL

Nope to that.

Last trip out there was fun for me! Quite a few bass, and caught a handful of crappie for dinner. I’d love to have a waterfront home on Sandlin!! Come on Dillon, you know what I’m looking for 😁😁

We are trying to find one under $300k! It’s darn near impossible!

We bought on Sandlin in August of 2015 left thd Dead Sea of Lake Granbury and moved here full time in 2018. Love it ! Still learning the Lake and where to be careful. Since Monty closed water level is pretty consistent. Compared to the Lake Lice traffic on Granbury this place is heaven!
