Me and the Family heading over for a night in a cabin and a couple days of fishing this week end. We have never even seen the Lake. My initial plan is to hunt up some trees/channels in 20-30' of water. Anybody have any favorite areas they wouldn't mind sharing for this time of year. We will be launching from the Sate Park.
Also afternoon activity ideas would be welcome
Thanks
Love this forum

I'll be out there as well but banking it. I have no advice from a boat but best of luck!

The wind is going to be strong out of the north Saturday so watch were you leave your boat tied off at. As far as fishing goes fresh Shad and main lake points and humps should produce.

All over the dam area can be great fishing! Just find the large humps stacked with fish, drop some fresh shad (which you can get below the dam) and hold on!

The wind changing should make it better. And if you go behind the spillway to get Shad don't let your net sink to far or you want get it back in one piece.

If you are launching from the south side park be careful if the wind is blowing out of the north. That lake can get ugly in a north wind.

In case you don't know the lake is still 5 feet high. Doctors Creek SP camping area is closed. The other boat ramps just reopened. They are still letting water out at the dam. You throw a net in there you better hang on. Nobody has been fishing the lake only the spillway area. I drive across the dam all the time and I've seen one boat in the last couple of weeks. The water still looks like chocolate milk. Sorry for all the bad news but I thought you should know.

Man the lake is fishing good Iam on it nearly everyday. South sulphur boat ramps never closed I was still running trips when it was 7 ft high. Muddy water does not hurt the catfish as long as the water temp stays down the fishing will be good.

Do you have to throw for the shad way early or can a lazy man find them later in the morning?
