any of my BCB brothers got info on the bend?  We are fishing our Club tournament there  April 14.  Launching from the Texas side at Pendleton I think.  Since I don't know the lake well I'd like to stay fairly close to the launch area.  The plan is to go over that Friday and practice and spend the night. 
Just need some locations and maybe some clues as to what to look for.
I fished it once, several years ago.  I think we were in the LaNan area that time.

Man have I got the deal for you. Launch and run north to the first arm, that's Patroon. If you go in the back of it, you'll find buck brush full of bass, shad, and fun. If you stay in the buck brush in the middle of the arm you'll find bigger bass, a little slower action but the ole top water is the prefered weapon.

I caught them flipping the buck brush, you had to get deep in it, caught them on Frogs and spinnerbaits. By the time you get there the Shad spawn should be in full swing and you'll have no trouble catching them.

Mike is 100% correct.....I have been averaging 20+ fish a trip out there right now.  All shallow buck brush seems to hold fish.  I was using the spinnerbait and a creature bait.  With shad spawn you should have a great time.

Patroon was just what I needed Mike.  Never caught a big fish but caught plenty and had a blast... just wish the weather would have been better.  ~rain

It's been crazy lately, almost impossible to fish a lake like Todelo. Fronts and winds make big water a brutal affair. Thanks for the follow up.

Yeah I got a tip on some creeks off the main lake but the wind made me nervous enough not to attempt to get to them.  :(
