Ray Hubbard Bass Club - Lake Tawakoni
Ramp: Duck Cove
Saturday June 09, 2012
Lake Tawakoni - Old lake but very popular
with the tournament crowd. This lake may surprise you with the size and
numbes of bass that may be available. Flooded timber, although not abundant,
is found in scattered areas throughout Lake Tawakoni. Docks abound but
many are shallow. Aquatic vegetation is sparse and tends to decrease following
lake draw-downs. As water levels increase, emergent aquatic plants such
as smartweed establish dense areas of cover. The habitat on Lake Tawakoni
is limited, so any available cover tends to attract and hold largemouth
Bass are currently managed with statewide
regulations. 5 fish, 14 inch minimum length limit.
