|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method & Location|
|Crappie||Fair||8-14 inches||Use live bait or various colored jigs near dropoffs or brush piles in deeper water.|
|Channel catfish||Good||8-30 inches||Livers, shad sides, or other prepared baits along ledges or windy banks. Upper end during rain events can be good.|
|Largemouth Bass||Good||up to 5lbs.||The topwater bite should be good. Throw buzzbaits, walking baits, and poppers around shoreline cover early and late in the day. Spinnerbaits, Crankbaits, or vibrating jigs should all produce fish. If the bite seems to be slow try Texas rigged plastics or Ned rigs around any structure. This is a high density population and harvesting fish below the slot is encouraged to reduce competition within the population.|
|Wipers||Slow-Fair||up to 6 lbs||Chicken livers or crankbaits fish around wind blown banks and dropoffs.|
|Walleye||Slow||curly tailed jigs or crankbaits along the bank near deeper water.|
Please remember to help STOP AQUATIC HITCHHIKERS! CLEAN, DRAIN, and DRY your boat and livewell when leaving water bodies.
Four Georgia Cube Fish Attractors were placed by the fishing dock (2on the East end and 2 on the West end) on the north end of the lake.
DO NOT MOVE FISH OR BAIT TO DIFFERENT WATERS!
