About the lake:
Location: On the Colorado River in Burnet County, near the towns of Marble Falls, Kingsland, and Granite Shoals with a surface area: 6,449 acres. Impounded in 1951 it has a maximum depth of 90 feet.
The shoreline surrounding Lake LBJ is highly developed, with miles of bulkhead and boat houses that provide cover. Several creeks wind back off the main lake, providing shallow vegetative cover in the form of water willow and spatterdock. The area near the dam is rocky and clear, while the upper end of the reservoir is more sandy and stained. A small power plant is located in the Horseshoe Bay area, discharging hot water during the winter, when forage and game fish will concentrate in this area. Many submerged brush piles are hidden beneath the surface and can provide excellent angling opportunities if located. Don’t expect these “honey holes” to be advertised, good electronic sonar equipment will be needed to find these structures.

Captains will be recognized with the Academy Captains Awards including a $50 Academy gift card for the winning Captain and another $50 Academy gift card in a random Captains drawing.
