Any tips for off the bank or with a boat?

I haven’t fish MC in years. Had better luck in the fall out there fishing from a boat. There was one community brush pile but it got moved and I’m not sure it’s still there. A buddy and I made a brush pile, I’m not sure it’s still there or not, haven't looked for it in 6+ years. Caught a few fish around the spillway drain.

I just got a boat, registration hasn't come back yet. I've been fishing off the bank there for several years off and on, never had much luck. I see there are a couple of underwater hills in the topo map I found, so that's worth checking out. The spillway has a pretty quick dropoff, so I'm not sure how good a spot that is during the spawn.

This lake doesn`t seem to have a major creek so first thing I would do is give it a once over with the Navionics Chart Viewer and look for Deeeep water POINTS & DROP OFF`s before I left home.Navionics shows four points & I would run "S" patterns on each one starting @ the north end and work my way towards the dam until I found something ie: structure or fish. Just my opinion it`s not a hard fast rule I don`t know they could be just roaming around following bait. To be successful you have to put in the work this time of year.Spider rigging would`nt be a bad idea if the lake doesn`t have a lot of submerged timber. coolio

I'll definitely be going out and trolling around to see what I can find.

Scan the area circled. There’s brush there but I’ve only done good in 80* water temps
