no fish. I've been fishing here all year (2020) hoping to get in before the spawn but no fish. wait. I did catch one bass 2 weeks ago on a slow retrieve of my lipless crank bait. soft bite. about a foot long. But after several more trips no fish.

they could be getting some lock jaw due to the weather changes lately or they are just staging mostly off secondary points getting ready for the spawn? When in doubt, fish finesse and go from there.

Thanks for the report. I talked to a guy that fished there recently and I believe he mentioned carp, bluegill, and some smaller blackbass. We also discussed the ticks and he says he sticks to the cut out paths in the grass.

yeah that place is full of ticks in the high grass areas. I stay on the rocky shore and beach and away from brushes and long grass.

yup some of us started presenting baits slowly with worms and slow retrieve etc
