East Texas Bassin


All across the state of Texas, there are many, many small lakes that harbor really good bass fishing. We had the opportunity to film on one of those small lakes a couple of weeks ago and had an incredible trip. The first bass we caught was a 6 1/2 pounder out over hydrilla, and from that point on, it was game on! One thing many of the smaller Texas lakes have in common, whether in state parks or near cities, is a lot of vegetation. And any time you see a lot of vegetation in a lake you can count on really good bass fishing. This particular body of water is very similar to Rayburn or Toledo Bend - deep grass and big bass. As spring progresses in Texas, don't always look to those giant bodies of water. Try some of the smaller lakes, and you can truly find some hidden gems.
