Supposed to go to Lake LBJ in January for an extended weekend. Anybody have info on fishing that lake? I've got a boat and fish Buchanan fairly often. TIA

My lake!! Fish the canals. Find very still water and fish it slow. If you think you are fishing too slow, slow down some more. Get on Google Maps and pick some canals. If you don't get a bite in one, try another, some hold a lot more fish that others, go figure. Wish I was going too. [Linked Image]

Dead filamentous algae. I hate the stuff. It's bad enough when it's alive and green.
