Got to the lake at 6pm last night. Fishing started hitting at 9pm. Within an 45 min, our group caught our limit of wipers, which is only 1 per person and a white bass. The other guys that went up there with us caught theirs 3.

We decided to move locations and try to bring home some catfish. Jumped in the truck and got stuck in the sand again. This time we decided we didnt want to pay for a tow. After 30 mins finally got out. Drove to the other side of the lake, and the other car (small car no 4 wheel) thought he was gonna just drive through mud. Not gonna happen. An hour later we get him out and decide not to fish here after all.

We go back to the dam, they go to a different spot. Both of us ended the night with great fishing.

When we finally put our poles back in the water we lost a good 2 hours of fishing. The wind picked up a lil, this was around midnight. The fishing was slow, cause with the wind the bait fish dont come in. At 3 am the wind died, bait fish came in. I took my cast net made a couple throws and caught a few shad. Cut them up and all the fish tore them up. We caught a ton of wipers i didnt want to count it was too many. Let all of them go cause we had to. Ended up bring home 4 wipers, 2 of the 6 lbs each, 2 white bass, 1 walleye, 5 catfish fat ones. The other group ended up with 3 wipers, 30 catfish, 4 whitebass. They also released alot of wipers.

I dont know how accurate a boga grip is but we scaled one that came out 12lbs. My measure stick only goes to 22' and it was over that im guessing 25' 26'. Does 12 lbs sound right to u guys? Pic will be up in a lil bit.

Fished Friday night and Saturday afternoon. We trolled pretty much the whole weekend and caught this personal best 5.3 lb. walleye on a crawler harness. We caught a few walleye, wiper and catfish(can't believe catfish were suspended in 15 to 25 ft. of water and aggressive enough to go after cranks). We spoke to a number of other boats, they were all catching there limit of walleye drifting lindy rigs w/ leaches.

Good Fishin!!!

When u get to the lake drive over the dam, enter the main boat ramp fish on that side of the dam. You can fish any where almost i know guys that fish a couple different spots they all catch fish. Just watch the weather if you go it sucks up there when it gets really windy.
