    Ill be there Sat for the Tourney.. If you see someone walking around looking clueless, that'll be me :eek:oooh:

    Far as bank spots at Springfield..Theres the Steps or the "green pipe". I hear the old boat ramp next to lindsey bridge can be good. It's opposite the bridge on the same side of the lake as the new boat ramp. It's super deep, but the cove right next to it is shallow, though I've never personally fished there.

    If you talking about the ramp spot by beach house thats private prop. I didnt see any signs or nothing but the 1 facing the lake itself and a guy came up to me and brother and said we had to leave. think its called the old massy's boat ramp.

    If ya can find a few Shad , the ole Hickory Point area ,South of Island Bay yacht Club has some sand ,rip rap and a channel all in close enough for bank fishermen.
    Easy access and if ya keep a spinning rod handy the Whites show up there once in awhile to entertain ya too.
    There is another ramp just North of the Beach house. Think it's refered to as the sailboat ramp. Good deep hole right off the concrete and very little traffic.
