Reservation Date : 05/12/2022 AM -
Total Fish/Sizes : 35 bass from 1.5 lbs. to 3.25 lbs.
Lures Used : Fished mostly with 4" Yum Dingers and Trick worms with some frogs

  1. When arriving at the gate, expect to have problems with the lock.
  2. Lake is down approximately 2 feet which really increases the dificulty of fishing in grass.
  3. Water clarity very clear, which is way to clear for me.
  4. Sunny and clear today which only makes things worse for bass fishing.
  5. Wind started out great and then quickly jumped to utilizing front and rear anchor weights..
  6. We were there very early and ready to fish. 
  7. .Immediately caught some nice bass on frogs.
  8. However that quickly ended and things really slowed down for a while.
  9. Eventually we found the bass pattern which was between the shore line grass and lilly pads.
  10. Basically spot fishing between lilly pads which produced some really nice bass and the largest of the day on a weightlyss lizard
  11. Due to the grass we were utilizing 1/32 wts to just get the bait down on top of the grass.
  12. PS: we only fished the first primary lake when you driver in.
