That's a pretty good lake to start with. I go up there every year in early june and always slaughter the bass...now that it's later in the year they're probably gonna be pushed out from shore a little bit...two island has lot's of main lake structure in the form of rock bars and sunken islands though. I caught all my bass in the shallows inbetween all the islands, but now if you can find deeper channels inbetween the islands that would be a good bet too. 3" power grubs were the ticket, but anything perch colored would be good too. Nearby devil track lake is good too, same tackle will catch all the bass you'll want there. Both lakes have good numbers of eater size 'eyes.

Just troll a worm harness with a leech or a crawler. You won't be able to shake the bass of your line. Two Island is your best bet at catching a trophy. You just might catch some walleyes as well.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
