Houston Area Bass Help Me!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

           I am new to the Houston area I am here for the next year for work. I do not have access to a boat and was wondering if there were any land access ponds and Lakes that produce good Bass with out the need of a boat? I am also willing to work on my days off to help land owners in exchange for permission to fish private waters.

 

Thanks, keep rippin them lipz!

Zach M

All the major subdivisions have ponds with bass.the woodlands,Katy,sugarland. The bayous under hwy have decent fishing. Almost no bank fishing is allowed on condos these days unless you go to national forest.

Good to know, are "no bank" areas typically posted?

If you're willing to drive out to the Cypress area, there's a couple of spots that are good for bank-walking. One is near FM 1960 and Hwy 290 on the NW quadrant, behind Goode Co. BBQ on Wortham rd. You can see it on Google maps. It's a pond that's in a residential area, but there's a powerline field on one side, a bayou on another side, Wortham rd. on one side, and grassy field on the 4th side, so it's pretty well separated from houses. I always park in the business park about a block away since there's no place to park around the pond. It has a sidewalk/jogging trail that goes all the way around and I estimate it's around 4-5 acres. I always have luck pulling out some nice chunks from it, and although they aren't that big (1-2 lb.), I did hang and lose one that looked closer to 3 lb. Ned rigs, finesse worms, and squarebills do the trick for me there.

Also in the Cypress area is a really large pond / small lake that's about 60 acres. It's on FM 1960 (actually Hwy 6) near west road. You can find this one on Google maps also. It has a large parking area and it also has a sidewalk that goes clear around it. Lots of bank area. There are weedbeds that grow from the shoreline out to about 20 feet in some places and you can find bass in them especially in the morning. I like to throw a weightless senko and drag it across the weeds. I've caught them there between 1-3 lb. but I've talked to a number of others who have seen folks catch 7-8 pounders there. I've heard a frog works good for the big ones although I haven't had much luck with them myself, but have nailed them on the senkos. The bite turns off a couple hours after sunup, so it's best to get there super early or late in the afternoon.

Awesome Bro! Thanks I'll have to check those spots out. If there is ever a break in this rain I'll be out this weekend. Again I appreciate all the help I am going to put it to good use.

Keep Rippin' Them Lips!

Hey Garvin is it the one Copper Village Trail goes around?

Sorry, I told you wrong on the second one. It's at Barker Cypress and West rd., not Hwy 6 and West. It's right across Barker Cypress from Lone Star College. It's called Horsepen Creek Park. Sorry, I don't know anything about Copper Village Trail.

Luce's Bayou on lake Houston and the northern end of lake conroe have always been good. Also try in public pond you can find almost all have a decent bass population.

 

I would also look at the facebook group Houston Bass Slayers they fish alot of ponds
