      I fish the Big Bash tourneys here too (not this year) There's bubbas here that are excellent fisherman. They too are dialed into this lake hard.

      Don't get me wrong. I'm all about sharing and cultivating the sport we love...but when you catch what I am your mouth tends to shut real quick. I tempted ...more to tell you but that info is hard to keep secret. Just wanna enjoy it Should be done in next few days anyway.

      yeah most causal fisherman at BD don't seem to be much of a fishing treat if you know what i mean. hahah yeah just gave out a few pointer for beginners and people ...more not familiar with the lake, after 1 year fishing there i feel like im just now getting to know some patterns and spots.
    5. Ed Hesse 0
      The lake is hot right now. Need to keep this as low as you can. Otherwise we will have a line at the ramp and all our spots will be covered with boats ya know? I'm ...more limiting what info I put out. I'm catching a LOT more than what you see.
