Twin Lakes 4/21/13

Postby rigmewacky » Apr Sun 21, 2013 6:50 pm

Originally was headed to Beck Lake and noticed that central was closed at river rd. Now seeing some Beck Lake posts from today I guess there was a way around the street closure. So I decided to give Twin Lakes a little love instead for a few hours. The water was at normal levels just a little murky. I walked around the lake throwing a jerk bait and managed a couple bass but only one was picture worthy. Got a weight of just under 3lbs(2.95) but not a length measurement. I never have too much luck here so it felt good to set some hooks.

Good outing. After the rains it was very high so I assume it came down a fair amount. The playground was in the lake so had to be 3-5' up at peak.
