We go every year, usually in late May or sometime in June. I made it easy for myself the first time I decided to bring my boat so I didn't have to spend a lot of time learning a new lake while vacationing with the family. Ever since then, I've done the same thing every year I've been and have always caught fish. I launch at the Carsons Creek (the ramp to the left, north Carsons Creek ramp I believe) and I just stay in that area while I'm there. I fish all the coves on the north side of the ramp and by the golf course and I've always had good success. I fish the mornings and evenings and throw Spooks, Yellow Magics, and Buzzbaits a lot during the first 2 hours and last 2 hours of the day. Otherwise I'm throwing a Squarebill, T-rig senko, and Spinnerbait near the rocks and points. I don't make it complicated while I'm there trying to look for them graphing the lake since it's family relaxing time. I just fish simple, always done pretty good, and never got skunked. I've caught some pretty decent fish in that area keeping it simple. Good luck.
