    Sometimes you can talk to the old-timers of the area too. Those that were around when the reservoir was dammed. They may be willing to point out where roads and such used to be.

    All post above are true tips. Best $10 I ever spent was on a good lake map. Sometimes you have to explore around and try different spots also for maximum fishing success.

    yes speaking to old tymers will teach you a lot. i have a certain place that i crappie fish and old tymer turned me onto. its an flooded access road surrounded by trees. i learned this about 5 years ago. at the time he told me had been flooded for almost 20 years. its a fun place to fish.

    I met some of th old guys at jordan tonight, 12 of them. they even offered to take me out with them but I had to decline. I did spread the word of the BOC even wrote it down for a couple of them So we may be getting some new members. as for the knowledge it was like having a library all my own, I now have about 8 more bank spots to try and 3 are 4 by boat. All on Jordan.
