  • Water Temp: 50

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: Lack of rain for the past several days has cleared the lake quite a bit. But it has not improved the fishing. I was able to get a fish here and there with a brown spider jig but I did not get a limit. Nothing else worked. ON a side note, I was the only boat on the entire lake. That was a new feeling. Fished from about 9 AM to 2 PM. Lake is high into the trees. Going to try again on XMAS Eve.

    Tips: This is an amazing spring/summer time fishery but I rarely do well in winter. So nothing to offer in the way of tips. Sorry.

  • Water Temp: 73

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: Been fishing here for the last few months and the bite has slowed down for me. Started fishing today at 8:00 am with a buddy. We did our usual and tried fishing in 5'-20' of water from a boat hitting the coves and rock walls. We tried top water, Senkos, Robo worms, and cranks baits. We had no luck fishing these methods. At noon we moved into 50' of water and hooked up almost immediately using both a weightless and drop shot wacky rigged Senko worms.

    We fished till about 2:00 pm and we caught ten fish between the two of us. All fish caught were between 1-2lbs.

    Tips: Try dark colored 3" Senko's rigged wacky style fishing in depths of 50'. Find some structure at this depth by fishing close to boat docks or some sunken trees. The fish don't seem to be as aggressive as they were earlier in the season so I suggest letting them play with the worm before setting the hook. I usually let them make 3-5 tugs on the line before setting the hook.
