During the winter your best bet is to look for structure on that lake. some of the locals have dropped christmas trees in there find them and you will find crappie also. And Dont forget to look for shad . Some will also be in the creek if you can find a deep hole and don`t mind walking the banks. It has only one feeding creek that runs under I-35 to the lake. In the Spring the south back part of the lake warms up first fish the stickups near the long silver pipeline in 2 to 3 feet of water with a bobber. I tore them up back there one season. Good luck

Around the tower on the dam used to hold some really nice fish and numbers too. I have sat out there at night with lights and caught quite few. It's been years ago though. It is inside of the bouys, that clearly say no boats!

Those are usually the best spots, the ones that tell you to keep out. I mainly fish for catfish at the lake, but i would like to get one some crappie, I know around the island there is supposed to be some brush piles, but i haven't had any luck find them

From the lake you have to go down the creek on the shallow end.See my post above this one. It is a map of the lake.
