    Does anybody fish Blue Springs Lake? I've fished a few times from the dam but never had much luck. I think I'm going to get the boat out and see what I can do though. Thought I'd see if anybody knew where the best places to fish are. Also does anybody white or hybrid fish there. I've heard the south end is the best place for that???

    If you go south under the Woods Chapel Rd. bridge and then turn right and watch your depth finder, you can eventually locate the old river channel. That's a good place to look for channel cats.

    Thanks guys, that topo was helpful. Do you guys ever fish jacomo? Just wondering since the record channel was caught from there. Didn't know if they pulled big ones from there still or not.

    I fish Jacomo quiet a bit. It is a good lake for drifting as there isnt a lot to snags on the lake bottom. Have to watch aruond the cappie beds as some of them hold a lot of brush. I have a friend who has spent the last 2 yrs. learning the lake and has put in a lot of hours there. He can actually do pretty good on the crappie. He caught a 17" last year that I wouldn't believe if I hadn't saw it. I was drifting last week and he was crappie fishin in his boat. He and his dad ended up with 26 all over 10". It is a good lake but you have to pay your dues and learn the lake. I've been fishing it since opening night which I think was about 1954.

    A kid last month pulled a 30+ pound blue (I can't remember exact weight) from there...so there's some decent fish in there. I have been given some ideas on how to more efficiently fish those waters, but I've had such nonexistent luck there previously that I can barely bring myself to fish it anymore.

    Then again, I know I will. :big_smile:

    Well, me and a buddy decided to do a little water skiing out at blue springs. After we were done, we headed over to the south side to kinda get a feel for things over there (the engine on the fishing boat is torn apart right now :sad2:). Then we found out the fish finder wasn't working. Well we went over there anyway. And of course the first thing we do is run into a stump right below the water :roll_eyes:. Luckly we were just idling so it didn't tear anything up. I'm pretty sure I know where the channel is at over there, but kinda hard to tell with out a fish finder. Hopefully we'll get some rain soon so the fishing will pick up a little out there.

    If you keep going straight after you pass under the bridge, you'll find out pretty quickly that the old road bed is there about a foot under the water... :eek:oooh:

    Ya i guess it could have been the road bed. I saw that it ran right through there so I tried to stay as far right as I could so I'm not sure if I got to far right and caught a stump or was to far left and caught the road. As low as the water is, I guess it was a pretty stupid move to try and go back there with our a trolling motor :roll_eyes:.
