Make sure to fish the inside weedline on the north shore. There will be alot of fishing in the shallow water in the reeds also.

This lake is a very popular lake to fish bass on. I know there is alot of water out there, but do you think this lake gets its beating all year long, where later in the year, the lake is at a point that there has been so many boats out there?

There is SO much structure out there that if you cover water and pattern your pick ups you will be able to find them. But with so much water that can take most of a day. A buddy said he was out last week and saw a bunch of boats in the usual bass haunts, so we went after eyes. He said he was able to get a few 'eaters'. I on the other hand haven't really gone after eyes in there, mostly bass.

A good buddy of mine was out on one of the tournies on sat and did pretty well. He got a ton of fish but didn't find the decent ones till about an hour b/f weigh-in. Said they started at 6 and were culling by 7:05

Ocf1- In August you will see me in the middle of that lake fishing deep water humps, points and deep weed line. The later the season get the more i finesse fish (because of pressure) with a shaky head worm or a drop shot. But sometimes a 10" power worm will catch a lot of fish late in the season. smirk.gif

Not going to give all my secrets, But. Look for the weed lines, I usually cast a White or yellow spinner bait. You will pick up Bass and northern. If you go out to the East basin, keep the boat in about 5 FOW and cast the Humps. Work both deeper and shallower and you will find Bass and Northerns.
