I fished with my friend Charlie on Monday October 11th for the better part of the day.  We fished all over but only caught fish on the shallower side of the lake (the side closest to the boat ramp).  The bass were coralling baitfish against the shallow banks and we were catching them in 2-8 feet of water as they were crashing the baitfish pods or as they were staging in a bit deeper water.  We did catch a dozen or so on topwaters as well, but the best action to 4 lbs was on chatterbaits and crankbaits.
