Hi All,

I'm planning to tow my camper to Cypress Springs for the weekend. I'll be fishing Saturday evening and Sunday. I've never fished the lake, so I'm looking for some tips to get me started in the right direction. I've read about the docks on the lake and will plan to hit those. Any idea if they are shallow or deep right now? If I could find some fish for my wife and 9 year old daughter to catch, that would be a big bonus. Any help appreciated.

You really shouldn't have much trouble find fish given the huge population of spotted bass in the lake. Since you are fishing over the weekend the real issue will be staying away from the waves that will be coming from every direction from the ski boats and jet skis. Our lake has retaining walls on 90% of the banks so the boats create a washing machine effect on the weekends and holidays.

If you are staying in Walleye Park, you can fish back in any of those 3 finger creeks and stay away from them for the most part. In the middle of those 3 fingers there are some really good deep docks on the left hand side as you make your way in. The creek channel runs really close to a couple of them. The 3rd finger closest to the dam also will have some fish in those pockets. They seem to never leave there year round.

If you want to brave the washing machine run a little West and fish some of the points. This time of year the spots can be loaded on them and can be caught with a c-rig with any bait that has a little charteuse in it. I normally throw WM based baits with the tails dipped. Specifically a HooDaddy Jr in Ultimate Green or Green Pumpkin/Chartruese Pepper. Nearly impossible to not catch some spots doing this in those areas right now.

I'll be there tomorrow-Monday. Wave if you see a red/white skeeter 21i ! Points and docks is what I'll be fishing. Dropshot and shaky heads. 6" watermelon red truck work with tail dipped chart.

You guys are awesome!!! I'll be in a Silver/Black/Maroon Skeeter ZX21 with power poles. I'm taking the tube to pull the kids around some during the day. If the waves are too bad, they'll get tired of that quickly. laugh

Good Luck Ronnie. If I see you I will swing by and say Hi.

I fished there Mon - Wed. Caught at least 25 per day, most during the morning bite from 5:45 until 10:00. Unfortunately most were small but your wife and daughter should really have fun.
Topwater right against the seawalls very early produced lots of blow ups. Then plastics against the sea walls and around docks produced lot of bites. Late evening saw a few larger fish.
Will not be there this weekend but good luck, I am sure things will be changing with this heat. Let us know how it goes.

These are some terrific responses to a member who simply wants to get into some fish. I'm proud of all three of you for giving TwoLakes some solid recommendations for getting on the fish.

Buzz a rage toad against the sea walls and Banks early and you'll get some better fish....just enough speed to make it work

Anybody fishing the far west end in the lily pads? Is it worth an early morning try?
