LM should be going on the weed edges with standard worm rigs, or senkos. Early morning is good for spinners, top water and shallow cranks. Any of the weed edges or cattails should be a good starting point.

My dad had a cabin there for over 30 years, some real hog bass caught and released over the years. Kept one that was just short of 6#, mounted. I've caught some nice LM during the winter on light crappie, sunnie rigs, what a hoot.

I've had some of my best luck on smallies on the south end near the narrows on the rocks. They seem to go deeper than the LM. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
