    Hi Texas brothers...anybody have any places to go from shore near Austin that they are willing to share? I'm coming out for work for a few days in early January and figured I'd get at least a few hours in somewhere in the area.

    Obviously I know it's going to be tough from shore that time of year but it's worth a shot.

    I live out by Belton lake. Its a good hour from you so its probably to far, but we are still catching channels near the fishing dock at Temple Lake Park.

    I don't know the timing of the trip yet so it may not be. I don't mind driving it as long as I have the time to do so. Thanks.

    Belton Lake and Still House Hollow are two great Reservoirs with depths of over 100 ft, great fishing and within 15 minutes of eachother. I have caught plenty of fish there, cant wait to come back and try them with the knowledge I've gained in Virginia

    See if you can get some access below Mansfield Dam. I also hear that downstream from Austin is also good on the Colorado. Bait up a hole from the shore on Lake Walter E Long....
