    Buddy and I were thinking about giving it a try with some bluegill as bait, anyone have any advice for fishing this lake?

    get a contour map and find the channel and drop offs. That lake has an 8 inch limit on bluegills do using them for bait is a bad idea. Try some raw shrimp and turkey liver. I have yet to catch a catfish out of that lake.

    Where would I find such maps at Jeff?

    We ended up using chicken liver but had no luck, we were there from 10-2am

    Watch out for the blue gills undersized. It's a 100 $ fine for each one that isn't. At least that's what I got fined last year at Olive creek south of Lincoln

    If I remember right, my dad (catmanjeff) took me when I was younger and we would always lug all our fishing crap across the dam and fish for the night and it seemed like it was pretty good fishing, and off the handicap dock near the boat ramp by the park.

    They move around. Get a contour map, find where the channel runs into the dam. deep hole there.

    I don't remember fishing off the dam there. I do remember parking over by the dock and riding our bikes across the dam to get to the other side of the lake where the church picnic was. Your little bike had those little wheels and your legs looked like the side of the chatanooga choo choo and you kept begging me to slow down.:smile2:
