    Tips: During spawning drag rubber worms slowly. Worms work all day. Use Topwater in the morning and at night. Almost anything works aslong as you use the lure slow. Everywhere we ished we either got bites or caught some ish.

    Report: My boy and I had a great week o ishing near the narrows and the banks near Christmas Tree cove. The weather was overcast most o the week, so we stayed with a topwater pattern near the shoreline and had some success. The larger smallmouths and spots were eeding near the bank on rock and wood structure. The bite was very aggressive. The ish were hitting the lure once it contacted the surace o the water. Very un!! These ish were in the 16"to 18" range. I was very surprised. My son and I practiced catch and release and took some nice pictures or the photo album. Very low pressure on the lake all week.

    Tips: We used a super pop r with a special 2 eather trailer that matched the size o the average shad bait in the lake. I tried a texas rig worm but had no success. Top water was the call all week long. I also tried a persuader spinner bait in the all white with willow lea tadem blades. I did catch a couple with a slow roll presentation o this bait. Good luck on your winter ishing and practice catch and release so my boy and I can have another great week at the lake.

    Report: Quality bass ( 2-3 lbs.) on spinnerbaits and worms. Color didn't matter much. Fish slow and hard in areas where you locate ish.Backs o cover weren't as productive as the points. Lots o ish showing in deeper water on electronics but ew takers.My wie and I had a blast but the wind limited where we ished.Good Luck!

    Report: First time up this year. We started in the main lake ishing rom the Marina toward the dam. We caught numerous spots on 1/8 ounce darter head with a 4" worm in about 2-10 eet. We caught several ish on white super lukes in the backs o coves. As you go up river rom the marina, the water gets muddy and the bite tapers o. You can ind clearer water about 3/4 o the way up the narrows. The last couple o miles are just stained and you can catch ish once again. We did manage to catch some jerk bait ish, crankbait ish and spinnerbait ish also. In all we caught 53 spots, one 4 1/2 pounder and the rest all between 1- 1/2 lbs. We caught two small mouth and two white bass. We had hoped the whites would be turned on but no luck but it won't be long I'm sure. This is the place to be i you want alot o action...it only gets better rom here on out !!!
