Just fall in line . The Internet has done its job on that lake. The main boat lanes look a lot like I20 on the weekends. No matter where ya go there will already be boats there or will be before you make a cast. And if you catch a fish get ready for who ever saw it to be in your back pocket before your next cast.
I've seen this same thing happen to a few different lakes. Some pics get added on the internet forums and some stories get exaggerated every time they are told, and then all of the sudden people start driving 500+ miles to fish for a week because they think it will automatically be a smash fest. A lot of people have been having a different experience on the bend lately I'd be willing to bet. There are still several sacks being caught, and there always will be. But it's not an automatic trip of the lifetime where you're guaranteed to catch toads all day every day like some people make it out to be. And like you said, there has literally been an insane amount of boats in every creek arm you run to. With that many boats on the water every day, even during the middle of the week, I would hope we are still producing 10+ pounders often. It's crazy.
