Lake Austin near West Lake Hills, Texas
If you are interested in catching bass the best baits for you to use are spinnerbaits, soft plastics, live bait, swim baits, and jerk baits. The best spots are weed lines, fallen trees, and majoy inlets/outlets. In summer since the boat traffect is so heavy I recomend you try fishing at night since the water is co clear. Night fishing is good year round anyway though. For panfish your best bet is to fish weed lines, inlets/outlets, and fallen trees with small jigs, live bait, small crank baits, and small spinners. For catfish your best bet is to fish with dead fish, wroms, cheese, and any dead, rotten meat you have in deep holes all the time and shorelines at night. Night is the best time to catch catfish. Also if you catch a grass carp you have to throw it back because of the Triploid Grass Carp Permit thing. Good luck fishing!
