    I only know of one person who has caught anything decent out of there. I think he caught one that weigh around 8# but that was a couple of years ago. You might try Pony Express, Belcher seems to get hit pretty hard.

    That was a great lake when it first opened.Due to its remote location,enforcement was zero.Buckets of fish were taken out of there.Haven't been for years,like others stated,ya got a lot of other choices around here.

    I used to live 3/4 mile south of the lake. Used to coon hunt the creek before they damed it up. Fished it a few years after they stocked it and cought several small bass and sunfish. It was getting hit pretty hard by St. Joe folks.
