the fishing on this lake is very good because there is pretty much every thing in there. there's monster pike and bass for daddy, and little bluegill for the kids. although this lake is small it does have some big fish in it. and it gets deeper than nine feet. it hits about 18ft. i was there a few days ago, and got a bass out of there. that was it. oh there are lots of crappies to. good sized.
