We stayed at the owners retreat which was amazing.  Craig was kind and very hospitable.  Top class accommodations.

the cold front came in and the weather was frigid.  In fact being a born and raised Texan I have never seen fishing line freeze and create ice spaghetti coming through the reel!  All the lakes are beautiful and amazing fisheries.  I sometimes hesitate to write much on my reports as I did not feel like we did great and I don't want to sway people from fishing this property.  However we all probably want the same thing: enjoy angling with as much information as possible:  that said due to the time of year and weather pattern we caught every fish on the bottom. We could not get them to chase anything- A rig, chatrerbait, crankbaits or flukes.  The bottom worm or salamander was all we could find to produce bites.  The boats are nice and there are so many “fishy” areas that I can't wait to go back in the warmer months.  Even though the sun was out the air temperature was 20 so we had to layer up.  Good solid bites but only had a half day here.  This is the lake I'll come back to next time for sure.
