Any info on Amistad?

Recommended Posts

I'm supposed to be taking a trip down to Amistad here in a few days, and I've never been before. I was wondering if anyone has any tips for me, I'm not looking for someones secret honey hole, but just some general tips on like, are they shallow or deep, what colors work best, good baits to throw.... any info someone would like to share about the lake would be helpful. Have anyone been recently, and if so how did you do?? 

 

Thanks in advance, Brad

Hey Brad, I'll preface this by saying I haven't been on the lake in months and I hear it's fishing pretty tough, but I still love fishing there. Super clear water with hydrilla, bluff walls and rock everywhere. It is a great topwater lake. And I'm talking middle of the day, bluebird skies, it "could" be on with a topwater. I always have a big spook and a yellow magic on deck there and will throw them throughout the day when I see something I want to target. Also a great opportunity to catch a smallmouth which is cool. Jigs, C-rig, crankbait, jerkbait, swimbait- Just throw what you have confidence in with natural colors and enjoy the scenery. Good luck.
