Any advice for a first time trip out on the lake? Looking to take the boat and go after some bass. Anything would be appreciated.

The Parking lot is still 1/3 under water and you'll have to walk thru knee deep water for about 20-25 feet to get to a pier that is sitting pretty crooked and pointing to left.  Just checked last night.

Yellow, white, and striped bass are not the same species.

Yes Inland Sweep the white bass/stripers, or yellow bass if you want to be a "Technical Terry" have really taken over this lake.  Wouldn't mind catching a nice sized one, but they all are really small.

Has the white bass population really exploded that much in this lake? Haven’t fished it in a couple of years but man we never used to catch those in there.

This is new to me. I have fished this lake for more than 40 years and never caught or heard of one caught.  Anything to thin the Striper population is fine with me.  I have caught some Northern and was hoping they could manage the stunted fish.  Whatever it takes this Lake needs some help!!!

Have heard of channel cats caught by buddies when bass fishing with plastics.  I would think it is a good thing, more and more inland lakes seem to have catfish showing up. 2 lake close to me they have showed up are Lac la belle and Rock lake.  I love cats, both catching and eating.  I would think they could definitely put a dent in any fish that is overpopulated, they are big fish eaters.

Seems like there are more channel catfish in this lake than I first thought.  Been hearing of more and more people catching them.  Any of you guys catch a cat out of here recently??  And I'm NOT talking about bullheads.
