I'm gonna try to get out on busses for the first time this weekend, and was wondering if anyone can help me with an area from shore to fish?

No problem. He caught it on a spinner bait on the east side of the south pool about 250 ft south of the dam near the bike path in that small cove........

Hey ds, thx for the heads-up about the muskies in the South Pool bc I have fished in the south a lot and never ever caught a musky there,  but I'm sure that they are there... where abouts were you guys and what type of lure or bait did he catch it on? Thx again bro!

Hey Anthony, i also fish busse pretty often and idk about muskies being in the South Pool but for sure in the main...  I have had good luck catching them around the South dam on the main pool side with Square bill crankbaits !  Hope this helped some , always good to give a fellow fishermen info and also great to receive info from a fellow fisherman. Good luck!

Hit the main pool yesterday with a buddy between 1- 6 ... very windy but sunny, tried all sorts of different lures and even pitched few fallen timber. Nothing but my buddy got a few hits and a small dink! I only got 1 hit the whole time, not a good day but nice sun and  conversation ... maybe better luck next time!

Thx Kenk,  for the info and the article was very helpful. I kind of thought it was somewhere through there like it was last year. I will be out there fishing for trout at sunrise on Saturday 15th... see you  trout guys out there!
