Obviously having good fishing knowledge will help in catching. There are massive bass in this lake. My personal best in 5 pounds, lost bigger, and have seen friends pull out bigger. 90% of the time I fish from the dock, and usually catch 1 to two fish over 3 hrs on average, sometimes none, but thats fishing. I have a lot of success with watermelon senkos with red fleck, also watermelon fluke, and watermelon red fleck havok pit boss. the are out there for sure.

I have fished in this lake twice for largemouth bass. First time no bites, second time I caught one small bass. A beautiful lake with pads and grassy shore line but I think the lake is too acidic with a 5.0 pH of the water. This does not make for a decent bass fishery.
