Lunkerhunter,

I've heard they do sell minnows at the shop there but I just stop by Gander Outdoors and get my minnow there.  I've heard the cribs in front of the fishing pier are 5-6' deep.

Thanks guys.  A guy did mention that there were cribs in the lake.  Does anybody know what depth they are in.  I don't suppose anybody has GPS?

Also do they sell minnows at the bait shop their?

Lunkerhunter,

a lot of guys have been catching crappie from the fishing pier using minnows and a slip bobber.   I've been told there are a couple of large cribs just to the front of the fishing pier.

Drift or very slow troll between the island near the dam and the point across from the concession stand. Use a small 1/8-1/16 oz. jig head and a crappie minnow. Watch your electronics to find the depth they are at (usually 7-10 feet). There's a lot of shad so it may get confusing.

Need Help.  I am 75 years old and my grandson has asked that I take him Crappie fishing.  In all my years I have never fished for Crappie.  Bass, Walleye etc. - catch and release.  I feel embarrassed to say I don't know how to Crappie fish.  He wants to go to Pierce Lake but I have now idea how or where to start or look for Crappie.  I do have a boat.  Message me if you can.  Thanks and be safe out there.

Big time shad spawn happened, alot of competition to get the fish to bite now, at least big predatory fish. This lake gets hard to catch much July into August. Still have windows though. I trolled a few days ago few white bass and crappie.

Anyone know if there has been a bait fish hatch yet? Last year in early July there were "clouds" of bait fish at the east end.

Until this year I have never had my license checked (I've fished RC for 25 years).  This year 3 times.  Always two CPO's in a new truck.

Got out yesterday early in the am and fished the point for a couple of hours. Fishing leeches under a bobber on one rod, and a foot off the bottom with a floating jig head on the other. Got 2 lm 13, &18 inches. Lost a couple more. Also 3 nice channels (which just annoy me).

Mainly wanted to put out a warning: DO NOT WALK PAST THE BARRICADES.  

I parked in the lot by the dam and walked all of the way to the point.

While I was fishing I could see trucks on the bridge. As I was walking back approaching the bridge Barney Fife got out of a Park Police truck and started reading me the riot act about being in there. 

Now I swear that when I walked down there there was no sign prohibiting pedestrians, I looked. (I know there is coming from the road near the concession stand) But sure enough he walked me all of the way back to the north side of the dam to show me there was. It had to be put there while I was fishing.

Anyway, he let me off with a warning. (fine is $195.00)

Just didn't want to see anyone else's day get spoiled.
