|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method & Location|
|Crappie||Slow||8-14 inches||Use live bait or various colored jigs near deeper structure like brush or ledges.|
|Channel catfish||Good||8-30 inches||Livers, shad sides, or other prepared baits along ledges or windy banks.|
|Largemouth Bass||Good||up to 5lbs.||Spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, or squarebill crankbaits fished around shallow cover. If fast baits aren't working switch to finesse rigged plastics like weightless stick baits, Ned rigs, or drop shots. Buzz baits or Whopper Ploppers are good topwater lures during the summer. There are lots of bass in this lake and the population will benefit from you harvesting fish below the slot limit.|
|Wipers||Fair||up to 6 lbs||Chicken livers or crankbaits fish around wind blown banks and dropoffs.|
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!
