There might be one. When I went by on Thursday they had pulled two of them.
I always see swarms of fish marked on my locator at those and other depths on La Belle. I also see lots of carp in the water with my eyes. I've come to the conclusion those marks on my screen are mainly carp. And the smaller fish are schools of yellow bass.

Got out Friday afternoon with my bud jared.did the slow roll on a jig with crawler or leech .Dropped a couple vids on d&j begginers edge on fb of what we did.Led with a good sized cat then it become the walleye yellow bass show. Just like last time we were out drifting the boat in 8 to 10 ft of water and all the walleyes and yellow bass a guy could want to catch. This lake is such a blast. Finished with five different species of fish. Have a safe holiday.

Thought I would finish my report from fishing LLB last week. Fishing picked up considerably after being able to consistently find weedbeds. We drifted the launch area and had a lot of success pitching or jigging 1/8th ounce jigs and minnows. Caught a ton of yellow bass, a handful of walleyes, smallmouth and the occasional crappie or bluegill. Finding yellow bass is a lot of fun...there were multiple occasions when we had 4 poles in the water and each had a fish. They seem to be a nomadic species as they don't seem to stay in the exact area for more than 5 minutes. Fun fish though!
Also had success drifting the NW side of the lake. There are a couple areas with considerable weeds up there. Minnows/jig and minnow or small rapala cranks worked well. Yellow bass, walleye and smallies were the biters. Also caught several catfish and two giant 13" crappies.
As a side note, I saw the biggest muskie I've ever seen in person swim by the dock. At first I thought it was a giant carp, then thought it was two large carp swimming next to each other. When it got into the sunlight I saw the distinct pointed head and light tan stripes on the body. Definitely over 40 inches, possibly 45+. And FAT. Saw a couple other smaller muskies swimming in the crystal clear shallows by the bridge/dam. I tried throwing Mepps #5 bucktails to see if I could coerce a bite but they weren't interested. Still fun to know they are there!
