Lake Tawakoni
We are at full pool. There are 5000 acres of stumps lying 6" beneath the surface right now on the South end of the lake. You cannot believe the places I have seen boats running on plane this week. A lot of guys got REALLY LUCKY today especially. If ya'll wonder why the 3 guide boats out were not running after the birds every time they flew 100 yards away, this is a picture of where you might have been today with the lake 7 feet low:



Basically if you go North of a line between Wolf and Sun and are in over 30 feet of water, you might wanna keep close to the shoreline when running on pad. I cut through a tiny roadbed cut by using my gps this week, a boat behind me did not make it across the timber without clipping a stump. Just because you see someone else do it does not mean it is safe, they my not have a clue either. Be careful, get a map, stay close to the shorelines and run around the lake instead of across if you do not have the timber marked. Or just have good insurance and a buddy to call grin

Thanks I marked it this winter. I am hoping to get a couple of fish tomorrow and NO stumps. Thanks for the heads up.



The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

I know I saw a boat running full throttle threw there and he got lucky. I was hooked up with a big one yesterday and knew we were getting close to the timber on our drift just from my paths all summer sure enough he wrapped up on a tree and was gone along with the last 1oz jig head I have.

I have the trees marked but as I got closer I slowed down anyway just to make sure. I have great insurance but I sure do not want to use it. I saw several bass boats flying thru there.

I also lost what felt like a great fish that got wrapped around a tree. I could feel him and gave it a lot of slack but it would not come unwrapped. mad

Thanks for the heads up Matt. cheers

That would be me when I was a newbie at twok years ago hammer Went camping there in the Spring, after good rains, and the water was up hammer I would plane from the state park to Sun point and Sun point to Wolf and so on cuz my ASSumption that the middle of the lake is deeper and safer like most conventional lakes? hammer And my trusted high dollar graph and navionics card showed clear paths and no trees hammer

But I got the timbers all marked now thanks to the drought woot

A warning map should be posted at all ramps at twok, imo, cuz I see boats flying thru there too hammer

This post is right on. I only get to fish up there once a year and have been duly warned. Take the long way from the state park to sun point (stay near the shore).

I have a question related to going from finger point to sun point. Is there a fast way to get from finger back over to sun point without going around the lake?

I have never been on Twok. Thanks for the information. Could someone post a map showing the danger areas?

Take in mind, this is a general idea type map I found years ago. It gives you a good idea, but is not accurate.

There's some gas money to be made if someone mapped out the trees when the lake was down.....convert to both Lowrance and Bird and sell the file.

The lake fork boat lanes are the same premise.

You aren't going to get rich because the market isnt big enough and its cost prohibitive to protect the data to avoid the "free share" but nonetheless it could be done to make some gas money with little effort.
