    Report: Frank & I started fishing at 8:30 a.m.We launched out of Reel Inn trailer park and headed SE. It was windy and the trolling motor was working hard. No bites for first 1/2 hour. We tried spinner baits, Chatter baits & Senko's. I have had good luck fishing Yamamoto grubs 3" & 4" in the past so why not try them again. It did not take long and landed a nice 2lb. Over the next 3 hours we landed about 20 fish. Most fish went 2 to 3 lbs. I made one cast with my 8lb test 6'6" spinning rod next to some bushes near the shore. Fish bite & swirled in the water. I thought it was a 1lb'er until I pulled it closer and then it started diggin in & pulling line. I landed my biggest fish yet at 6lb 11oz! Next two biggest went 3lb lloz and 3lb 7oz. We took a lunch break from 12-1 pm and went back to same area. Wind was kicking up and battery ran out after 1 hour. We managed to boat 5 more for a total of 25 for the day. I love fishing this lake!

    Tips: For us today Yamamoto grubs 3 & 4 inch in white & cinnimon with blue flakes worked the best. Used a 1/8 oz Gamagatsu jig with red hook. Just pich them near the shore line, or any weeds or cover and let it sink. Most fish hit on the fall.

    Larry, I always enjoy reading your postings. They are always honest and full of good tips.

    Water Temp: warm in the sum

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: I fish this lake alot, it has some good bass fishing along most of the west side near the RR tracks fishing the many trees the bushes in the water, and on the S.E. end of the lake in a small cove.
    There is a point there that is a great spot, fish the outside edge of the weedbeds in about 15 to 18 feet of water with my Sink-N-Fool baits in a Red Shad or Watermelon red color. Around the point in the cove there is a good brush pile that the beavers made that is hot also. Just cast one of my sinking baits over it and whind it back with a jerk-pause retrieve. Always just let the bait free fall when it first hits the water till it hits bottom as must of the time a fish will have it before it can sink to the bottom, if no hit do the jerk-pause retrieve.
