    Welcome to the BOC Brother. I've never heard of this lake, where is it ? How big is it ? Hang around and I'm sure somebody will post that they have fished there. Enjoy the site, lots of really good info.

    I fished it 1 time about 10 years ago. My buddies and I used tubes and kicked around the south end of the lake. It was about July. We used spinners and caught alot of 6-8 inch bass. One of my buddies hooked into a really big one but it broke his line before he could tire it out.

    Amon Carter lake is just south of Bowie.. Old Bowie lake is north of Bowie.
