    Congratulations...sounds like you had a busy day! Were you in a boat or fishing from the bank?

    Where exactly is Eastland Creek?

    Thats about 8 miles from the damn.Eastland creek and Ivy Hill is where I fished from a boat about 50ft from the shore. There is a state park there where you can fish from if you don"t have a boat.keep a tight line and watch that rod. 1bigblue:cool2:

    Thanks for sharing 1bigblue, sounds like you had a blast. I unfortunately haven't made it to buggs yet this fall/winter. Hope to go soon though.

    There are tons of awesome bank spots at buggs, if you wanna fish around the lower end of lake there's some good deep water withing casting distance from bank at most ramps, island creek ramp area is good, there's a couple old parking lots that you can fish all around, there off the road to island creek. . . . .most of the ramps have somewhere good to bank fish near by. i think there's some power lines before you get to island creek, you can go down and fish from the bank, i've seen several people fishing there in the past.
    Good Luck,
    Mike
