Fished on Lake Springfield for the first time yesterday. Did OK, but seems like the lake has more to offer than what we found. Looking for some advice on Bass in particular, as well as cat and bluegill.

Any hints on where to start would be great! Thanks!

I was thinking about bass fishing this lake in April. Wondering about rules for size of boat and motor. Best place to launch? Cost to launch? Is this lake worth the 3-4 hr drive for me? PM if you like...thanks!

FOCAS Tourney 9/12. Bump and Run club several under 15 inches caught. Most of the fish caught were quite aggressive. We went out of Lindsay Bridge ramp and traveled south to fish points near the Marina area past I55 bridge. We caught some nice fish on top water early(buzz and PopR) as the day went on spinners took the rest. Finished 4th, the winners were right in the same area, most of theirs came off of senko worms. Could not believe how rude another bass angler was after watching us take two 15 inch fish off the same point, they purposely proceeded to blow by us in no wake water causing my partner to nearly fall in. It was not one of our FOCAS member, but sad to know it was another bass angler. Bad enough that we have to dodge an occasional inconsiderate pleasure boater. Angry All in all not a bad day on the water for a lake that in the past has been very tough.

Fished from 6am-9am labor day, had a great morning chasing schooling fish that were pushing shad up. All topwater. Nice fish several 3 lbs plus, maybe 20 fish total. There are shad everywhere and the fish kept chasing them all morning. Fished the south end of the lake
