I plan to go catfishing tomorrow night on lake travis. If anyone knows where sandy creek is thats where I will be. Right off the bank it is a steady drop off for about 30 feet then it hits drops off a ledge I believe. My plan was to fish here with a 3/4 oz weight on the bottom and a size 1 circle hook a foot to 2 feet up then just fire it out there. Is this a good location and tackle or should I go to the cove around the bend that is about 40-50 FOW straight off. Also, I have some dough bait I was gonna try and I was gonna cut some perch as well. Any other recommendations there? Finally, I was thinking about starting about 9 and fishing until 12 or 12:30. Is this a good time frame? I'm open to PM's if you have any info you don't want to share openly.

I'm not sure. I know you can't on the LA side of the dam but there is a lot of camping on the LT side. You think that would be a good place?

Oh alright. I'm kinda new to fishing by myself (meaning without dad haha). So I'm still trying to learn the ins and outs and LT is right by my house.
