Finally made it to Clark Lake yesterday. Never been on the lake, although I have fished for bream from the shore a couple of times. Nice little lake with hardly any boat traffic. Saw 3 other power boats and 2 kayaks. One of the other boats came up and ask if I had some scales they could borrow. They weighed a bass that went 6lbs 3ozs. Very pretty fish. It is appealing this time of year as there are no jetskis or skiing allowed. That makes for a quiet day, as opposed to Bardwell. There is not a map on any of the cards I have in my electronics. I didn't switch card slots to see if there was one on the internal maps. I'll try that next time. I could still mark the brush I found, it just looks like it is on ground. LOL! I never got over idle speed as I don't know the lake at all. I went over some very shallow areas. Less than 2' in a couple of places.
I found 5 brush piles that I fished. I marked a couple more that I didn't stop at. First pile gave up 1 short fish and I thought this is not gonna be good. Didn't get another bite off it so moved along. Nothing off the second pile although I did get some bream pecking at my bait. Third pile gave up 3 keepers on the first 3 drops, then shut off. Fourth pile no crappie but did have something take my bait and run off. It let go and I never saw it. Pretty sure it was a bass, by the way it ran. I was headed back to the ramp, on the trolling motor, using SI when I marked a big brush pile. Stopped and threw out a marker. Proceeded to catch 17 keepers, one went 1lb 6ozs, and 2 short fish. You'll notice there are only 19 fish in the picture. The last fish escaped as it was being put in the live well!
I got on the lake at about 12:30 and left about 6:30pm. Nice little lake and the fish have very pretty color. Only one fish had eggs and she was loaded. Definitely not spawned. Water temp was 73.4. 1/16th oz. jig, Rag-n-Cajun and Texas Toast color. Fish were in about 10' of water.
I'll definitely go back. thumb

I saw what I thought might have been a golf course. If it wasn't it sure should have been. Is it closed now?

Yes, I was kinda worried about launching there. I had only seen single axle trailers any time I'd been there. Launched with no problems.

You`ve found One of my secret spots Rodney WTG! I fish from my 8ftr on it around those lilly pads to the right of the ramp. It has some very NICE SIZE Sand Bass in it also out there in the open water. thumb

This lake use to be two separate lakes.From the point @ the park,there was a land barrier that started west and curved N westardly towards the golf course. It can get real shallow real QUICK swinging around the point towards hwy287 & the Dam.For those new to this lake I would recommend using troll motor only going around the point until you get into 2cents open water.

I've heard Clark has some sandbass. If they're good size I might try to catch a few.
