Never been on the lake gonna be there this weekend. Looking for into on running the lake a good ramp to use. Probably plan to launch up in Kickapoo and fish up there some then launch at a teams down south to fish that end later in day. Always hear about the stumps on this lake not wanting to run into anything. Thanks TFF!

If you launch at Kickapoo, there won't be any running. So you're good there.

The rest of the lake, not so sure. In a nutshell, anything north of the 155 bridge you better be on the East bank. There are some widow makers in front of The Villages, then you're clear north to the woods. If you've not fished it before, personally I wouldn't run a boat any further North or West of the Villages.

I'm sure some others will chime in. I still get puckered up running around there, and I was running a boat through the woods up North in the early 80s. FYI, there's PVC with rebar marking shortcuts up there. Been there forever. grin

WATCH OUT FOR STUMPS! North end is full of them and with the water up they are all about 6" under water. You WILL hit them, hopefully you will be slow enough for no damage. Once you get south of the bridge it is a little more open, but as bigfish said stay on the east side if you are "running".

Don't come looking for me if you loose a lower unit. The map is for "general idea" purposes only.

I highly advise you that if you put in a Kickapoo stay there, maybe run the powerlines to the other side than idle North into the river. Do not try to run South from the power lines your first outing, it will be your last for a pricey few months!

Yes, we have our share of Meth-Heads in the area, don't leave anything visible in the truck. Should be fine after sun-light there, its the hours before sunbreak that are a little shady theft wise there.

Also, if you have a spare prop you don't like, put it on for idling in Kickapoo (trust me), your prop is going to get worked-over unlike any where else idling that stump field for the first time, lol!

Everyone gave you good solid advice. Kickapoo is definitely a mind field but as long as you idle sloooooowwwww you will be ok. The only place you can run is along the power lines but be very cautious and stay tight to them. If u want open trouble free water fish saline bay its on fire right now. Fish stay shollow year round on them waters. Good luck brother.

Most of that lake is a nightmare to run dude. Be really careful. I've never seen more "pucker factor" on a lake.
