How big of a boat? The landings should be good enough for any normal fishing boat, heck there was a 40 foot houseboat 'thing' on it a couple years ago. Be careful of the sandbar that stretches across the west arm, and the various rockpiles. When the water is low like it probably is you can damage a prop pretty easy. And they really aren't marked well on any map I have found. Lindy rigs always work well, and jigs will work as well. You will know where most of the spots are because boats will be all over them. Look at a map and find the small humps they are all over the lake, try those and the area just east of the sandbar is good also. Good luck, I won't be up there for the first time in ten years but there are some nice 'eyes in there.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.
