I fished tournaments there many years ago. We took 4-5 maps as there are so many trails. Great lake to fish....spring is good to use while spinner baits to catch the chain pickerel.

Next to the cypress trees is good with a stick bait. Cast and let it sit the just the slightest movement....and WOW the bass are excited.

Fun lake to fish, just watch for the snakes and alligators. Interesting that you can be sitting in a timber area and hear a speed boat coming then pass you by and no wake....

good luck
Using the site for a while...this is really great to share fishing ideas and success with others.

There are some huge panfish in there. I fished it one day from the dock in the State Park...saw some Chain Pickerel swimming around as well.

I'd love to get out there on a boat and fish all the cypress stumps and knees

The lake is pretty shallow in general. I would fish around big green break, little green break and buzzard bay around cypress trees and duck blinds.

paddle down river from the state park ramp (east) and you'll see lots of downed trees not too far down plus plenty of private docks to try as well. If that doesn't work then load up and go to Johnsons Ranch, fish the opposite side of the river in the pads, you may run into a bunch of yellow bass (which I like when they get some size on 'em) but there are crappie there too.
