Post subject:  Fishing lake Houston in mid February and March

Hello, I am looking at taking my wife fishing next weekend. We have never been on Lake Houston before. We like catching large mouth with lures, working structure, banks etc. What color soft plastics are good this time of year, type of swim bait, color. What part of lake do you guys suggest. Cold weather fish, I am usually looking in deep water. Any help would be appreciated

Black , Black/truse, Black/blue. Pitching deep docks with jigs on south end weather permitting.
jigging black or blue back chrome spoons off ledges and humps along river channels..

if bad weather fish upper end of lake in the river forks or bayou. pitching to downed timber
Points and creek inlets. slow rolled spinner baits white with brass or copper blades
deep cranks. Gold/ black back. black/ blue back. Did i mention black.

Thank you very much, I think I might go with some black in color. That spoon idea sounds fun, I haven't thrown spoons in a long time. Do you have a good boat ramp to recommend?

BJ’s is the best place to launch from.

the boat ramp at BJS is kind of shallow if you have a big boat . Ponderosa marina is a
deeper ramp and safer for bigger boats. for fishing the bayou and east fork. $7 launch fee

duesen park has a big good ramp for fishing the south end . but it is not good if you
have a north wind this time of the year it blows right into the ramp and the south
end can get very rough and very quick. Free launch.

the ramp at lake houston marina east side of 1960 bridge is a good ramp but $10.00 launch fee

Is BJ’s okay for a 21 foot bass boat? Never launched there before but thinking of it if it’s safe. Boat is only a year old so don’t want to do any damage if I can avoid it. Thanks

I think 21’ is considered big. And a year old???
Pay the $10 bucks...

Thanks, I had definitely rather pay the ten bucks if it’s safer. I plan to fish the east fork so thought it might be easier to put in there. I have run from Ponderosa to the east fork but not in a year so my concern was that it’s changed with the hurricane. I’m not very familiar with the lake. Appreciate the info.

you will tear your lower unit up trying to launch at bjs with that big boat .
Ponderosa . lake houston and duessen park are all good to launch a big boat
like that.

Then stay out of Lake Houston. Go to Fayette or somewhere.

C130..just run it slow down Luce's from Ponderosa ramp. I haven't been since the hurricane (back surgery) but used to swing way south at the mouth of Luce's. You can see the sand bar on Goggle satellite. Maybe sit there a while and watch what others are doing.
You sell your toy hauler?

Just watch me... I seem to find all the sandbars (more than once, too).
