A treat to catch bass on Lady Bird Lake with Whited

Jim Darnell opines on how local lakes are becoming good options to bass fish

Where is the best lake to catch a lunker bass within one hour of San Marcos?  Well, three lakes top the list: Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake) and Lake Dunlap.

You probably won’t catch a bass to top the 22-pound, four-ounce world record caught by George Perry in 1932 — but you will have a good shot at a double-digit fish.

While bass fishing on Lady Bird Lake in Austin last week I asked my guide, Charles Whited, what lake near San Marcos was the best for big bass.
