Lots of Fish and Lots of Moss

We arrived around 9:30 am and left around 5:00. The tank is beautiful and unprotected from any wind. Water visibility is about 2 feet. We had a little confusion finding the gate as the coordinates on the directions are a little off. We had to back-track about 60 yards to find the entrance on the other side of the road. After entering through the gate, take the first path to the left. There’s no particular place to launch and we later discovered a 4 wheel drive would have been useful when pulling out of the lake onto the thick grass. Temperatures were between 60 and 85 throughout the day, with some pretty gusty winds in the afternoon. We couldn’t resist throwing from the bank upon arrival and Trav nailed a nice one on a Stik-O #297. I couldn’t make anything happen on my white spinnerbait from the bank. We launched and started picking them up on chatter baits, both hot craw, and white/chartreuse, with and without trailers, around the shallow side of the lake. If you could get a few cranks without picking up moss which was abundant around the banks and on the bottom, you had a good chance of catching a nice fish. We started working towards the dam and basically, found fish everywhere, at times, right out in the middle, throwing Senko’s. Trav hit a couple of nice ones on a 10’ red shad, Texas rigged worm. Most of the fish we caught were in 2-5 feet of water. The bite was pretty consistent throughout the day and we boated around 60 total, the largest about 4.3lbs, most were in the 2.5 to 3.5lb range. These fish know how to put on a show, treating us to several aerial launches with tail dances, and they were healthy strong fighters. All in all, it was a fantastic day. I’d suggest hitting this tank sooner rather than later as the clear water is bound to produce a lot of moss and grass in later spring and summer. If you can deal with the moss and the wind, you’ll probably catch a lot of really nice bass!

This lake has tremendous potential and we caught some really strong fish that showed signs of bedding (red tails). The algae bloom is going to be problematic though. If they threw some bluegill in there and treated the algae this could be a TOP notch premium lake. Fish definitely everywhere.
