I had heard some good things about the south end...the inlet end...plus it is no wake down there...the shallow weeds down in that end can hold some eyes...not all of them are in the classic deep spots...sometimes it only takes a couple feet change in depth to create an ambush spot for walleyes...dont forget the dam face for smallies if the walleyes dont want to cooperate...

I've been fishing there the past 2 days and have been catching my limit for walleyes. Rangeing from 17"-21". Using a 2 1/2" pearl white tube jig. Trick is they only bite when the sun goes down to about 10:30pm. Try fishing the outlet. It's been very good down there. Last night over probably 30 fish were pulled out there. Give it a chance I'm sure you'll be pleased.

Also lost a big one, I'll be thinking about that for a long time.
