Now is a great time for anglers new to the lake to come. Tie a crank
bait, rattletrap, spinner bait, soft plastic, or jig on your line and
cast the shoreline…you will catch bass! Most fish will be 12” to 14” but
you’ll occasionally get a 4Lb to 8Lb fish to keep you on your toes. I’ve
noticed the larger fish usually like a “roof over their heads” (under a
log, on a deeper point, in a brush pile, inside or beside cover).
You can view pictures of recent catches at
I’m mostly booked April and May but have plenty of June dates available.
Call now to book a trip for the best “Big Bass’ fishing of the year.
See ya on the Water!
