In fact, this is probably your best option if you don’t know the lake regardless of the wind. It can be treacherous. Do not run outside the channel markers, never and not for any reason. If you do, the timber will get your prop or lower unit. I know about that.
Largemouth bass are only a part of the story, however. The truth is Toledo Bend might be a better crappie fishery than bass fishery. Huge limits are caught year round. The crappie fishing is so good that a lot of the guides have gone to party barges so they can carry more anglers. And yes, most of the anglers onboard catch their limit early in the day.
There are lots and lots of places to stay around the lake and there’s usually a place to eat close by, too.
