I did a job there a few years back. Rented a boat storage and brought out the boat. Fished the afternoons and weekends. It was about this time of year. I did pretty good on bass. Better on crappie. Lots of timber in that lake! I fished around the dam area. Most everything I caught was on crank baits and spinner baits.

It was great years ago. I haven't fished it in a long time but I'm sure some TFFer will chime in.


"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

TPWD might have abandoned the lake as far as stocking and upkeep, but they definitely still make it out there to write tickets!! My girls and I were out there and came off plane outside the no wake zone by the boat ramp ( about 150 yds out). We got the boat squared away putting away tackle and rods. I started the big motor and idled in. My oldest didn't throw on her vest.... Ticket. They were doing their job but it still made my neck hairs stand up a bit. And yes, I behaved myself anyway.


It's only a good cast if you catch a fish...

Don’t get me started about the wardens patroling that lake.

Been there a bunch and never had a problem. Back in July was there and of the 10 bass I put my hand on none were dinks. a few hit the 5lb mark.

I consider it my home lake and its not very good anymore, I will pass on by to whitney instead. There are some old timers that still catch some big fish there but its not a numbers lake for sure, its kind of a mud hole now that theres not anymore grass much, it is a good crappie lake though. Seems to me the state needs to stock it bad but I've heard from there electro surveys they don't think they need to [Linked Image]

Be sure to have your Nav lights on if loading at the ramp at dusk, 'ol Doug does his job but wish he didn't have to be such an A-hole about it.

Guessing you were loading up at dusk and the only one on the water at the ramp and didn’t have your lights on? Classic.
