Just an FYI,, Some big bows are hitting up there. I was fishing the west side from a boat, Both with a silver 4 inch Yamamoto grub and a minnow suspended 3-5 feet below a bobber. The wind was almost non existent so I was just slowly working the shoreline.. ended up with several nice rainbows in the 20 inch range and they were fat and healthy. The park ranger stated that they had been catching the same sizes on the south bay from shore early in the mornings on orange colored powerbait.
I was mainly fishing for walleye and smallmouth but never did get bit on them. My first time on the lake and I was doing some exploring.. I?ll be back for sure. There seems to be a lot of potential for walleye and bass on the lake.

Thanks for the advice, I will definitly be up there some more this year and try that area out, We cruised through there just looking around a little and it looked promising. The no wake coves are a nice feature in that lake. Carter just gets crazy during the water ski season and ther eis no place to escape the rough water created by them.

Yes, the fees are a bit excessive I think, we camped tehre last weekend, 17 bucks a night. plus the 12 bucks for the truck and boat each day. 58 bucks just in the fees. But hey, It's cheaper than a motel and the views are way better. They also keep the park in very nice shape with clean campgrounds etc so the $$ seems to be put to good use.
