Fished it on the north end once about a month ago and didn't even get a bite. Marked fish, but couldn't get any comitment. We went out after supper so maybe try earlier on?

Good luck

The lake is decent for crappies. It doesn't get that much pressure but the numbers are also limited. I have not fished it this year but fished it about 3 yrs in a row and did get a few each time plus size. I believe everybody tries the deep hole but I have never found success there. I recommend working the 12-15 feet area's and look for dips in those area, they will hold the crappies. We always drilled about 15-20 holes in an area. You will understand when you try it. Ex: typically area will be 12-14ft, and in a certain area will be 16ft. Just watch out for the over abundant gators, they always claim your fav. jig.

Fished it twice this winter and not a bite. I've had good luck in the summer for sunnies, bass and the occasional crappie.
