It was a fun filled memorial weekend at the lake and to top it off the fishing was great. The crappie were active around the 15ft depth. Minnows seemed to be the best method for catching crappie; most were caught around the docks and various brush piles on the lake. The channel catfish didnt take the weekend off as they were biting on most baits including, dough bait, chicken liver and minnows. The bigger channels were seen caught around brush piles in 18ft of water. The fighter jets of the under water environment, aka Sandbass, were active around the 6ft-10ft depth. Some very nice sandies were caught around the sand bar and south east shorelines with light colored crank-baits while trolling. A few saugeye were seen caught on shad colored crank-baits. All appeared to be well under the 18 inch mark. All in all we saw alot of great fish and even more happy campers.
Until next time, Keep fishin friends...
