Went up there last weekend. Pretty lake with lots of campsites. Did some bass fishing Saturday evening and Sunday morning and managed only one smallmouth, which was cool because it was my first smallie.
Then headed out to deeper water to search for schools. And we wacked em. Found a roaming school of sandies hovering right at the 30 foot depth in about 65-70 foot of water. The fish were staying tight to that 28-30 foot depth----it was really interesting to see that line of fish on the screen. Ended up catching and releasing about 60-70 fish or so. It was a lot of fun.
That lake has a lot of points; I could not recall driving anywhere on the lake without seeing some kind of point. Also, it has some tremendous depth changes. You could graph probably any given point and drop from 10 to 70 feet in a length of boat two. I have also never seen as many rocks and massive boulders lining the shoreline and various places on the bottom. They came through very clear on the graph. Also probably what contributes to the clear water.
Speaking of the clear water, you can definitely see the bottom within a reasonable distance of the shoreline; but as you get to 7-9+ foot of water, we were not able to see the bottom. The clear, shallow areas actually made for a weird visual illusion for me because I have never been on a clear water lake. I've only ever seen maybe 3-4 feet down on our north Texas lakes. But when you're floating along the shoreline in 4-8 feet, you can clearly see stumps, grass, etc. that will kind of scare you at first. It makes it feel like you're sitting lower in the boat or something. Very interesting water, for sure.
