Hi guys,

What been everyone's experience shore fishing at Beck? I'd like to try it out but just want to get an idea of what to expect. Thanks.

what kind of lures do you use? what spots do you fish?
I have been successful with texas rigged worms, wacky style senkos, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, flukes, and swimbaits. I like to fish the NW side of the lake, but you can catch fish anywhere.

I found it pretty difficult to fish there because of the tall grass all around the shallow. It was frustrating to clean off the grass at every retrieve so I stuck with the top water bait and managed a dink in one hour. It seems like mostly dinks are caught from the shore. However, it's a whole different story if you have a boat as you can see from some of the posts.

That tall grass was cut off sometime in mid season I believe, witch sucks by the way. I have caught some nice size bass out of Beck.

BgBass is right. I miss the weeds too. Those weeds are a pain to clear off your lure every cast, but they also harbor some nice fish. The early summer weed kill thined that stuff out a while back. I like to work spinnerbaits through any pocket I can find in the remaining weeds. And maybe twitch a weightless creature through every now and again.

i fished there yesterday, and let me tell ya, after all that rain it seems like the weeds just clumped all up at the shoreline, i lost 3 lures and no bites, and i usually land at least 1 bass everytime i go there. Was a let down. (2 of those lures were weedless btw)
