It was my first time ever going to this nice lake. I had no idea where to fish. We tried the dam first. Caught what i think was a small mouth i dont know i let him go about 12 inches, a hand sized whitebass, and a hand sized drum all went back in the water.

Decided to move locations, it was night time so it was difficult to find a fishing hole. Went to the boat ramp with a sign that read no fishing on the dock. The guys were scared to fish there, but i thought lets just fish here and hope the ranger comes than we can ask him where to fish at.

Fished the dock till 3am no ranger in site. Caught 3 catfish about 2lbs each maybe 3lbs. Planned on fishing early morning also, but i got really tired. That seems to happen often when the fish aren't biting. Called it a night and went home.

Cedar Bluff won round 1. Hopefully I can win round 2.

That's what makes you a fisherman. Trial and error. Persistence will pay off.

How long is the drive?

Actually man i got there with plenty of daylight left, i should of drove around looking for fishing spots before i started fishing. But who wants to drive around when theres fishing to do. Its ok ill take the good with the bad. O yea i forgot we caught about 15 carp and we started a nice campfire with them j/k we let them nasty things back in.

Let me know when you are going for round 2 and I can give you some areas and baits to use. I fish bass tournaments at CB
and it is truely one of my favorite lakes. The wind can get nasty but as usual the fishing is better when the wind is up.

Thanks hammer im actually going friday i think. But i dont have a boat. Im mainly targeting whitebass there. I heard u can catch them on the dam without a boat, but that was earlier in the year. With the heat wave we got im thinking the fish are farther out but i could be wrong. I've heard great things about that lake man. You can pm if you want or just post on here. I truely appreciate your help.

I read somewhere on the web that using live shad/minnows on a drop shot(2-4' between the hook and weight) was effective @ Cedar Bluff.

I've been trying to find that site, haven't found it. Were you using crayfish?
