Long time lurker, first time poster.

I hit lake Georgetown yesterday @ 6am and started at my go to spot by Jim Hogg, caught a Gtown dink on asammy right off, but nothing much after that.  Then I moved up past the camp grounds to the flats right by the main channel.

Bass started chasing shad (around 7:45 am), so I put on a spinner bait and started burning it across the water.  Caught a few with one good one, but the most were dinks.

I then started to put the rod down and head to another spot when the water exploded all around me.  I had never seen this on Gtown.  By the time I had picked my rod back up and turned to cast the school had moved just out of range, but I threw any way.  Bam!  I was rewarded with a solid fight.  I still didn't know if it was a LMB or a white bass, but it put up a heck of a fight.  By the time I got it to the boat it had straightened out my spinner bait and turned out to be a rather large white bass.  It was really solid, I'm guessing 2 to 3lbs which is the largest I have personally caught.  I don't care, it was the most fun I've had out a Gtown for a while.

The schooling action moved into the main lake and I tried chasing them for about ten more minutes and caught on more tiny one.

I spent the rest of the morning trying out new spots I had never fished before.  

The skiers and wake boarders didn't really hit the lake until about 10, so it was pretty quiet out there.

Thanks for posting...

Hybrids can be found schooling on this lake too. Normally out in the middle of the lake, between Jim Hogg and Cedar Breaks parks. However, there are some big white bass, too. Remember to check their tongues. One tooth patch is a white bass, two teeth patches is a hybrid. Hybrids need to be 18inches before you can keep them.

Yeah, I'm not too familiar with the differences between white, hybrid or striped. I have a picture of it on my phone, I'll post it later today (although it doesn't do the fish justice, this thing was chunky). Thanks for the info.
