Results of our tournament on LBJ this weekend were mixed. Several fish over five pounds were caught but the majority of catches were small fish. Topwater produced bites. Jerk baits and crank baits did well. Some were caught around docks. The best stringer was just under 12lbs.

The nice aspect about this lake is even will all the development and the number of houses on the water, the lake is mainly a weekend and summer attraction. I saw very few people on Friday when I practiced and not that many more over the weekend. In fact, there were more deer than people. Seriously, all the millions of dollars in housing and hardly anyone was there. Certainly not like Rayburn or Livingston. I am sure the time of year played a part and summers are crazy with people and boats. So, if you are looking for a lake to fish tournament in the off season, then you should check this lake out.

What area of the lake were you fishing? Main lake humps, creeks, where were you getting the most bites?

A national fish hatchery just down the road.
Inks lake should provide some of the best fishing in Texas.
Its a tough lake to fish for me.

Uh...I'm guessing you're not on LBJ very often. It is usually a cluster flock of wave boats and jet fleas. BUT, there's some good fish in that lake. How many teams were there? 11 + pounds sound really light for that lake.

I fished it the other day, and only caught a couple of 2 pounders. I don't know that lake though, so I was just guessing at where to fish. Caught them both on main lake points in 5-6 feet of water. One on a spinner and one on a crankbait. Gotta get out with ya fivebites! Might be springtime at this rate. Life is interfering with fishing time!

Well I'm officially old and senile. My brain read INKS Lake.
How in the heck did I see that I don't know!
Kinda embarrassing to admit .

I rarely fish LBJ but instead I go to Buch

Yes LBJ is a freak show of boats.

I have been fishing LBJ for years it hasn't been the same for some time. The locals are blaming the Zebra Mussels and I've been blaming myself. It used to be easy for me to have a 20 to 30 lb stringer on any giving day but lately it just ain't happening. I was on it in mid November, Monday thru Thursday, sun up to sun down, and it was very slow. I missed a few big'uns and boated a couple dozen 3lb and under. I fished everything from the dam to about two miles up the Colorado. I had 23+ lbs in this pic when times were good. [Linked Image]
