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.
