The lake is simply awesome in the winter. I don't care what day you fish, it just doesn't matter. What changes the fishing patterns the most is really dictated by the winds. When it's blowing 25mph out of the North, you are really limited to where you can fish effectively. When it's out of the South I feel there is much more fishable water, but that really means it's warmer. When your fishing a point in the wind and it's 25mph out of the south and it's 50 degrees, its OK, but take that north wind at 25mph and it's 40 degrees, its miserable. I don't think it affects the fishing, just your mind set. I've fished it 15 times this year and have yet to not catch at least 15 fish, but my average size has gone down this year versus last. Last year I caught some serious stringers out there - they have not shown back up in those spots this year, so I'm having to learn more spots. I keep going back to those same spots, cause I know they should show back up, but to no avail yet. Back in November I got on a top water bite that was producing 20lb stingers before 9:00 am but that has gone away for now.
