      I've been staying at Sportsman's Resort on Jonathan Creek, great Crappie fishing, good cabins or hotel rooms and fully equipped marina with live bait and ...more tackle.

      Sportsmans Resort and Marina, they have security 24/7 on the docks! Cabins are priced on par with area. Have stayed there several times.

      Between Moors and Jonathan Creek area is a place called Hesters Spot in the Sun. Nice marina with gas/bait/ice. They have their own boat ramp and decent cottages.

      Missing Hills Resort is a little more rustic but it is reflected in the price as well if you are looking for something not terribly expensive. Chris, the owner, ...more is a great guy and he will fill you in on where he has been catching them recently.

      The map on this app is pretty accurate. South east side gets very shallow. South end dykes are pretty safe on left side to middle. But as water levels change.

      Becareful between islands when running from North to south end. Open water goes very shallow to 3 feet in some areas

      Jim. My first time I went slow until I saw other boats going on plane. I wish I had more for you but it's pretty good practice at least for me to follow other ...more boats as they go throughout the lake. Keep an eye on your chart map. They're a few spots that the regulars stay to one side or another. When in doubt, I use my chart map Navionics. It's kept me safe so far. Sweet lake if u ask me! Have fun!!!! And tight lines bro!
