I was there two weeks ago, day before Labor Day. Weather was nice and we were out there fishing by 7 am. We fished until about 12:30 pm. It was me and my three boys in my boat and my parents were in their boat. My parents casted jigs with half crawlers the whole time and only caught three or four catfish, all between 15-20 inches. In my boat I was casting a variety of jigs and plastics and only caught one fish: a crappie on my fish cast. My boys all had a bobber and worm out the whole time and we didn't see a single bite on those three poles. We fished in 3 feet, and 12 feet, and everything in between all over the lake.
I used to live in the area and fished this lake probably 50 times between 2012-2016. This was my first trip here since probably 2019. This was by far the worst fishing day we have ever had here. Usually on Memorial and Labor Day weekends we catch a lot, always a mixed bag of crappies, bluegills, bass, catfish, and even walleyes. Could've been just a bad day, not sure, but I was surprised how poorly we did considering I know the lake really well. Lots of carp spotted all over the lake. Either way, we had fun and it beats a day at work!
