I have never been to eagle mountain lake before and the lake is very intimidating because it is mainly docks. Please help me because I don't have a clue on why to do/ throw can you help me by telling me what to do like speed fishing or to really slow down and fish slow. Maybe some lures and colors to throw. Maybe some spots to try, I am lost on what to do please help me. Thanks

Smallmouth fight hard, Spotted bass are frequent, and Largemouth get fat.

Slowing down will definitely help. Finesse and slow. There are definitely areas/docks that regularly produce better than others, but that's the fun of fishing..finding those areas!

Our club tourney was out there 2 weekends ago. Lets just say it was a dink fest the whole day. 5 keepers were weighed in and winner was 4.5 lbs 1 fish.

We caught a ton of fish pitchin a speed craw on rocky ledges close to the bank as possible. The sunfish were everywhere and got annoying. All our bites were in 4fow or less and almost all before 11am. Fish were short striking a lot (lots of pinchers/claws bit off) so let them commit to it before your hookset. Also noticed a straight shank or off set hook was better (not EWG).

Colors didn't matter really as most of the water was stained but blue flek and watermelon/purple is what we used. Caught a few on a YM as well in the morning just as the sun came up.

Flipped a chatterbait in the marinas for a couple fish but again, nothing really of size. Lake is tough right now.

Good luck.
