I use the map that Dennis Christian has provided as Cedar Creek is not my "home" lake. I fish RC but it has been way to muddy. Thanks to Dennis, I decided to run over to CC and try out his spots. They produced. What I usually do is troll a crankbait behind the boat while I am searching the spots and locating fish. I figure might as well not waste the time that I drive around locating fish. If I pull over fish, I will see if the crank bait picks them up, this is more or less to confirm they are whites/hybrids. Then if I get one, I throw marker buoys and then I use the mepps method on them.
The LMB was caught while trolling with crank baits. The hybrids and white bass that I caught were a mix between cranks and mepps method. Caught about 10 fish, 5 of cranks while locating and 5 on the mepps. Pretty good day thanks to Dennis sharing his wisdom.
Dennis, If you are reading this, I think I saw you out on St.Annes on Sunday Afternoon. Sorry I almost ran over your marker buoy. I did not see it! Thank you for sharing the spots with us. We ended up catching one 22" Hybrid. I noticed you had caught one too.
