In one of your posts you mentioned you live on Kelly/Dudley, With the pike regulation (release all under 30") for quite a few years now. You would think that the lake would be loaded with decent ones, I don't find this to be true at all, just a few small ones. This goes for the bass too. Do you know if there are any number of decent fish & they are more elusive because of the clarity, depth & massive amounts of cover? I experieced this on Reeds too (also regulated) fish here & there but not what you would expect with regs in place, providing people abide by them.

Input from anyone else?

Thanks, L2f

They are in here wink.gif I pulled a 33"er a few weeks ago jigging for crappies.

I personally have had better luck on the Kelly side (boat launch) with a big ole sucker minnow and a bobber, off the deep hole where the weeds come up to the south, in about 8 to 14 FOW. I have also caught a few large bass this way...which kinda of surprised me.

On the Dudley side, left of the channel, I have 2 favorite spots, and have done very well for pike n bass. Next time you come out to this lake, give me a shout, I'd be happy to show you a few things about these lakes.

I wanted to thank you for you're reply & invite, we did get over there before I read you're reply & did have some fun. Got a really nice bass a short distance from the access & as I landed it I heard a noise & it was some people sitting on their deck watching the fight clapping. I showed the fish & let i swim. In the course of the evening we caught two more bass & 3 pike nothing big, but fun. I did have one on that felt very respectable, but it got off, ah well, another day. I'll post when we come again.

Thanks again, L2f

My son & I went to Roberds a few weeks ago & I couldn't believe there was no sign if the grass island there!! No old stubble or new emerging sticking up at all. Nothing going on that day there. So what were you having a blast with? L2f

Bass in the docks like no other! Average was around 16". Had 3 about 19". A few on a chatterbait. Lost the biggest bass of my life in a tree. frown.gif We had 1 dock that produced 8 fish! Close to a 30 fish day. Amazing day overall. smile.gif except the sunburn...
