Never had any issues. I thought the base was off Eagle Mountain Lake. I fished around 199.

Nope the JRB is on lake worth, they dont like people trolling around near their beach at night, even though its perfectly legal (im not aware of them getting any kinf of special control over the waters around the base) The JRB is on the inside (south east) of the 820 bridge

No Gator Gar up there but there are some real Alligators up in the Nature Center. We had one get in a Koi pond in Benbrook and we called the Nature Center to see if they wanted it. They said no thanks we have plenty! Heard TPWD took a six footer out of the lake last summer that was being a pest.

Anyone fish this lake regularly. We went and fished it last night and to say the least we were not impressed with the areas we fished. We had high expectations as I heard it was a good lake. We shot maybe 10 fish in 3 hours and was shooting 90%. Saw some smaller gar roll out away from the boat and a 5.5 to 6ft roll about 50 yards out as we were stopping for the night. Just really seemed to hit or miss and might have just been last night for some reason.

Just curious if anyone fishes is often that can convince me to make another trip back before making a final judgment.
