Re: Going to 11 mile
I like to fish pike at Cross Creek which is on the far north west end of the reservoir. There are large weed beds (which is where Pike like to hang) but if the water is clear, you can see lanes to drag a spinner between the weed beds. I start up by the fence line on the north end and move south along the bank clear down past the parking lot and around the next bend. I have also pulled 20-22" rainbows from that same area using lures.
