I see Harlem Road entrance is closed to repave road.  Is 173 the only way into park?  What is the earliest you guys go in without getting into trouble?  I know they have signs that say park opens at 8:00, but I see guys are in their boats and fishing prior to that time.   Haven't had the chance to get out yet this year with boat due to recovery from surgery.  May feel up to it in the next couple of weeks.  Thanks for your input.  Be safe out there.

Taking my 10 year old nephew out on a boat Saturday morning, any tips on where to go will be helpful.

Fished for a couple of hours yesterday off the fishing pier using minnows.  No luck.  Later a guy comes up fishing with Berkley Gulp minnows and he is hauling them in but then they quit biting.  Been kind of a crazy year for me at Pierce Lake.

If it’s Monday it must be Rock Cut. Put in 4 hard hours fishing today, fish appear to be scattered one here one there without any consistency (or perhaps it’s just the fisherman who is inconsistent).

Picked up one largemouth (2 1/2 pounds) down from the fishing pier and one small mouth (1 lb +) below the spillway and then zip. Until (there is always a fish story) I hooked up with a nice size Muskie off of Red Oak Point. He struck as soon as the lure hit the water, burned off some line, then jumped twice, and headed for a downed tree. I tried to turn him but he came unbuttoned and is swimming free - I reeled in and inspected my lure and discovered a bent treble hook. 

No Muskie, no pictures, but a great memory of the one that got away . . .

Put in a couple of hours on Monday, May 9th. Picked up three (3) largemouth using crankbait, the largest was just over 2.5 lbs with the others at just over 1.5 pounds. All released to fight another day . . .    

This is probably the 5th-6th expedition this season, the only one that included catching as well as fishing.

One follow, I think.  Water is very murky.  Can only see 2 feet down.
