Just saw this post or I would have responded earlier. The eye trny is always the first weekend in June. We have been fishing it for the past few and have done well. We took third again this year, just couldn't find them on Sunday. The lake is really in a bad way. I grew up on that lake when there were nice coves, lost of structure as well. Crappie fishing used to be awesome in spring. I think the wipers and the drought have hurt their numbers. If it ever comes back it will be an outstanding fishery again. There will be tons of structure again. My buddies fish in the fall along the dam with crankbaits and pick up some nice eyes. We did catch a lot of catfish, bass, and drum fishin the trny as well. We got into a school of white bass on saturday for about an hour. Every cast we were hooking them up. Was fun, but we were eye fishin. I can post the trny date next year when it rolls around.
