    Its a cool little lake .. only about 250 acres but man is it loaded with breaks and lots of points..
    Deep.. as our lakes around here go, seems like near 30 ft at the south end.
    Pike county is some rough country and the lake bottom is no different.
    Steep breaks and lots of Lines close together on the Contour MAP.... That always says fish here to me.

    I was only there once to chase the stripers and ended up fishing Crappie in the North end.
    They went to 25 hp motor restriction but kept the No Wake rule. Decent ramps and right pretty in the fall .

    If this link still works:

    www.ifishillinois.org/profiles/lakes/pdfMaps/Pittsfield.pdf

    it wll give ya some Maps to study.

    Good luck and get after them.
