    Welcome to the BOC Greg! Man that's a nice cat in your picture there. Where is that lake located at?

    I have had decent luck there in the past few years during late spring early summer. Fish anywhere where there is standing timber at night. Those flats will come up into the shallow wooded areas to feed on shad and crappie at night. The only problem is getting away from the channel cats. The lake is overran with them. I only fished there a few times last year, but hope to get out there more this year. I have seen some monsters come out of there.

    The fish in the photo came from a lake in Milford Ohio.

    If you drift fish livers/worms down the tailwater of the dam, you can consistently get 1.5/3 pound channels, but that's the only place at eastfork where i've gotten any. On the other side of the dam its a descent place to rockbass/bluegill fish.

    Just curious what brings you from West Chester to Clermont county?
     
  10. This place is to hard to fish, because all of the boat traffic.

    What kind of fish are you going for? If you are going for flathead, I would suggest hitting the shallower water in the spring and summer. There are a lot of coves with heavy cover all over the lake. I have better luck toward the Bethel area, but I'm sure they are all over the lake.
