  1. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Plastic Worm

    Numbers of nice bass can be found within the 7-12 foot range within and on the weed edges along the edge of the island drop off on the northeast side of the island ...more to the northwest point of the island. Get out early before the winds come up in the summer. I caught many bass in the 4+ pound range. This area is very close to the boat ramp. Move from the ramp along the east side of the island and work your way around to the west moving deeper and you get into later morning. Work the shallows in 3+ feet that have weeds and use top waters first thing in the morning and gradually move deeper if you've had no luck.

  2. Hey, I'm thinking of coming up there spring 2019. Looking for Small Mouth and Large Mouth. Let's say early to mid June time frame. Any ideas where on ...more the lake to look? Best times for pre and post spawn?
