Another convenient lake for members who live in the northern part of DFW metroplex. This 19-acre lake lies 9 miles south of Muenster. This soil conservation lake is relatively shallow with most depths less than 6 feet. There are depths to 11 feet near the dam. The lake has a forage base of bluegill and an abundance of gizzard shad. The gizzard shad pose both a positive and negative for the lake. The positive is that the bass in the lake is well over their average weights and the lake has above average-sized bass. The negative is that the bass densities are lower than we like; likely making average catch rates a bit lower. The water clarity is usually about 12-15" except after a heavy rain event which could make the lake less than 10".

We are not harvesting bass at this site.

There is a 12 foot jon boat for members to use.

Lodging is available at this location. A completely restored 2 bedroom 1 bath home, aka, Miss Kittys Place, sits about 1/2 mile from the lake and is perfect for two anglers or a couple who wants to get away from all and yet be just less than 45 minutes from the northern part of the metroplex.


We are not harvesting bass at this site.

Please remove all trash including soft plastics from the club boats.

This property requires a 2 adult minimum.

Please allow 48 hour advance notice for booking the cabin.

Great day on Tara lake

Honestly I didn't know what to expect when booking Tara Lake. Looking through the previous reports it seemed to be a 50/50 chance of getting on them. Within about 10 mins of being on the lake I could tell it…
