In case anyone was wondering about the fishing there from right next to the bridge, there are some giant carp out there. I was out on Sunday and just threw out a crawler to see what I could get and ended up with 3 carp over 10 lbs. It was pretty fun and I had the shoreline to myself (except for the occasional boater passing by). All in all a really fun day in the sun. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Dilleyo--- what area of the shore, along the rock bank or down towards the public launch? If you don't mind sharing some info you can email me at wks1974@yahoo.com

I was on the rocky shore, there is a little concrete area almost like an overlook just to the east of the bridge. I just pulled up a chair threw out the line and relaxed. It kinda sucked taking them off the hook though because you have to walk on the rocky bank and try to keep the fish on at the same time, but well worth it.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
