    Beakus,

    My brother and I might be in. Are you planning to fish from boat, or bank? We went yesterday, it was too damm windy though, at least for my 16' flatbottom. Looks like a nice lake though, if the wind was calmer. We cruised around the lake, did not see a single fish on the depthfinder however.:angry:

    Was amazing though, the water at the bouy line was 10 degrees warmer, than at the ramp. 51 degrees vs 41 degrees.

    Another thing, make sure you take bait with you, we could not find any shad to save our butts. Some guys we talked to said they are there, and they are huge, but we could not find any. The locals told us they are very hard to come by.

    Keep me posted about the first, we might venture down there.
