      I fished it about a year ago from a kayak. Another guy said he caught some nice bass right where you were with a top water frog but he was fishing from the bank. ...more

      I did not catch anything so I stopped but believe there are some nice fish there if I could locate them.

      Maybe I’ll see ya out there!
