    Here where I live we have a city lake. It is the second most roundest natural lake in the US. It measures exactly one mile around, and it is fed by an underground river. It is 100 + ft. deep in the center. I have never seen the level drop since I have lived here, even in a drought. A man caught a 21 lb. cat out of it a few weeks ago.

    What do yall think would be the best way to fish it?

    put bait on a hook and throw in:lol: ,

    try to find some cover and fish there
    a deep place like that may have fish all over in it.

    I don't fish lakes very often but, I would try fishing drop offs next to cover such as "hydrilla, rocky structures,and downed trees" . Use the natural forage fish that are available in the lake for bait. Fish shallow at night and deep durring the day!

    I like what dreadnaught said and fresh bait. Live are cut and even livers and shrimp. To narrow down the lake some you could bait an area with a mulitiude of things like cured corn in the area you are wanting to fish. If you do this I would start about 3-4 days before and everyother day if possible until you fish then just keep on baiting the hole. The fish would come to you.
