Austin Bass Fishing Info
I'm interviewing for a position in Austin and so far things are going quite well. Can some of you guys give me some info on what the fishing is like in your area? Which lakes are the best? If it's not a local lake, how far a trip is it from downtown Austin?
I currently live in Knoxville, TN and I've been fishing with a club here for years and I also started fishing the BFL circuit as a boater this year. The job opportunity sounds great, but fishing is the only major hobby I have so I want to be sure I can be happy with the fishing in and around Austin before I accept a position there (if the position is offered).
Thanks in advance for any insights you can offer. I greatly appreciate it.

All of the good lakes are pretty much 3 to 5 hours away.
The ones in Austin only kick out tiny fish and you've got to fish all day for them.Toads for breakfast=> lunch and dinner!!!

Welcome to the forum. Austin is surrounded by awesome lakes and has a world class fishery less than 20 minutes from downtown. When you get down here, I encourage you to come out to a Wednesday night tournament on Lake Austin and meet some people, pretty great community of fishermen here.International Ambassadour of the Royal Order of Lightning Wolves

I saw the fish porn thread already, but I was trying to get a little more info than just pics. Around here you can see some huge fish posted, especially when checking the Chickamauga forums. But the rest of the lakes can be incredibly fickle and humbling to even an experienced fisherman.
I guess what I'm getting at is: Which lakes are fun to fish and offer lots of structure / options? I know it's not common to catch a 10 pounder for most people... I just want to make sure any potential move I make will keep me satisfied.
I'm not opposed to traveling to Falcon or Amistad, and would certainly do it at some point. I just wanna know if I'll have enough "good water" to fish come weekends and such.
