    Spent a cold weekend on the lake with lots of wind. Caught enough bluegill to set out some limblines and jugs. Ended up with 5 channels and 1 flathead. Averaged around 3 lbs each. Will have fish for supper this week. A few of these are in my avatar.

    Sounds like a very productive trip! I love that lake. I used to fish it back in the 80's when I lived in Bowling Green. I usually had good trips, each time I went. I'd love to return some day and fish it again, but I don"t have a baoat anymore.

    I caught a nice flathead on that lake inetime with a bass jig. I 'd say it has some good ones in it.

    jkm I live about 5 miles from Ranger Bobs. I moved here last year and started trying to figure out the lake. If you are heading out sometime and need a hand or don't mind a tag along please let me know. I want to get out there some but I am stuck to the bank, I sold my boat in Florida before we moved.
