    Well i have to say this place was a lot of fun !!! Ended up catching about 6 fish night time bite wasn't the best but hauled in 2 6lb fish around 11 am they were both channels ... One was caught on Premos stink bait the other on a mud leech .. Camping was cheapest i have ever seen Non electric $10 Electric $12 . All in all it was a good time !!!!! If anyone wants to check this place out its 2 miles North of Griswold on highway 48 . It's not a popular place my buddy and i were the only ones there. I talked with the Conservation board fellas and they told me most channels caught there are in the 6-8lb range not huge but take a light action crappie rod and its a good fight lol.. Full of 3lb bass to if you like bass fishing ..
