Lake Amistad


One of my favorite lakes in Texas is Lake Amistad on the border near Del Rio. It has clear water, a lot of cover. and I've had some great days down there over the years. The last 4 or 5 years have been rough for Amistad, however, with some kind of fish kill that made fishing really tough. I have been hearing good things recently though and went down last week to film a show for Fishing and Hunting Texas, and, wow! It was great. First, there is cover everywhere - shallow bushes and grass. We caught a ton of fish, mostly in the 2-3 pound range. But had one giant, an 8 pounder. I look forward to you seeing the footage! I caught most of them on Crankbaits including a Strike King KVD 2.5, 5xd and 6xd. It was an awesome trip, and I look forward to another trip as soon as I can!
