Thanks for the tip. I haven’t tried a wacky rig yet but have seen their effectiveness. I will give it a whirl!
Do you know if this lake gets any thick grass mats during summer?
Fished Saturday and Sunday. Caught gills in 6-8 feet of water along weed edge. Had to work for them. Pink jighead with small gulp minnow. Last Monday they were just about jumping in the boat. Big change in weather or are they done spawning? Kept a few for a fish fry. All were 8-10 inches. After this winter I thought the gills had left but maybe I need more practice ice fishing.
The levels are 5-6 inches lower than normal. I keep my boat in a slip and can see the level on the docks. That is also what SAWM is saying too. Someone talked too the media and said it was a foot low and they took it and ran with it. More fake news??
I was wondering how the lake levels are. I've seen on multiple media outlets that they have lowered the water levels. I launch at county park and never had a problem with my 18.5 fiberglass boat. Just thinking launching could be questionable and the old 3' deep areas might have to be careful.
I will be fishing this lake in a couple of weeks. From google earth it looks like this lake has some extensive weed beds in it. What type of weeds are prominent in the lake? Is there any gravel or rock in the lake or is the bottom sand an muck? Thank you in advance for any info.
