For a lake this size and the fishing pressure it gets it's amazing how it produces. Of course there are off days, but I always enjoy the experience anyway. Management by the state and the onsite staff... is outstanding. See More

Wasted 2 and a half hours driving to the lake to find out you can only use a trolling motor. 3 hours on the lake and not one bite. I will not be returning here. I can go around the block and catch more fish.
