Oh yeh. More than anywhere else in the lake. I guess that the stumps that are two inches under the surface keep most out of the area. roflmao

We marked one on our GPS yesterday that literally was visible before the wind picked up....barely....and totally hidden with the slightest waves. It's in an area that 99% go through...ON PAD HAULIN AZZ...leaving and entering the Lloyd park ramp. Be careful.

Been a while since the "Pool" was at "pool". Not over. Some of these will start to claim a few nice boats.

Thanks Steez, I had a feeling you would chime in. I was back there today looking for baitfish but couldnt find anything in the creeks...

Seems like the lake is dropping quite a bit, they have to be going somewhere

Do you mean the west arm or the east arm? I have had success south of the bridge on the west arm, I went south of the bridge on the east arm today but I don't know it well enough to do anything but idle, I went back there quite a ways, but I didn't like the few areas I saw and everything south of the bridge is real muddy.

Since the party boats are out in full force now, I may need to go down there more often.

I did see three bass boats in the span of about 2 mins stay on plane on go under the bridge. Idiots.

Sounds like both areas (east and west) are about the same when it comes to hidden grenades...

Been driving that area for 2 years and never saw it until about 6 months ago. Can't believe that I never hit it. Marked it too for one of those foggy days.

Was fishing a point yesterday. Guy pulls up pretty close but I thought he was just going to start where I was and fish away. Nope. He drops the trolling motor and goes straight over my line between me and the point. Maybe 20 yards. Didn't even acknowledge that I was there. That was first time. Happened 2 mores times throughout the day with different boaters.

Went down there Sunday and it is still too off color for my taste. Catching fish on major points on a CR Fluke.

Upper east arm above the the Lake Ridge Parkway bridge? Lots of water up there. That's where Mountain Creek comes in. Used to be able to put in at Britton Park and then you were already "way up the creek". Closed last time I looked. That arm also used to have a boat lane clearly marked with buoys but DO NOT trust the buoys you see. They have not been maintained in years and there is a lot more timber south of the Lake Ridge Parkway bridge than you see.

Britton ramp is open you can run all the way to ramp if you know the run. But as stated above don't trust the buoys

I went up in there Sunday morning - I was the only boat in the area. Water like chocolate milk and couldn't mark a single fish
