Early morning in the deeper parts of the lake (access by boat) using chicken liver, I soak my chicken liver in garlic salt. Quite a few good sized channel cat. I have never pulled anything but cat out of this lake, but I also have not used anything but live bait on this lake and always fish it at night and early morn to avoid the skiers, tubers, and jet skis, as there is no horsepower or speed regulations during daylight hours.
