Good. Got the Brainstem test in the morning. We'll know more from there.

IMO the place is laced with BIG fish! Since you are splashing pictures all over the forum I might as well add to that. LOL
It has a huge population of threadfin shad, which obviously is great bass forage. I did not fish it much last year, and I'm not that big of a bass fisherman, but it also has a healthy number of black crappie, many of which are sub 10". I caught droves of fish from about 8 to 9 and 3/4, and huge bass were programed to nail the 8"ers when I threw them back. A site to see. My son and I were on the pier and one of the returned fish was apparently stunned and quivering on the surface. We were standing right over it and the biggest bass that we had ever seen, certainly 10plus just kinda eased under it and sucked it in like a bream taking a mayfly, and both were gone. Also a lesser bass, maybe 4 or 5 lbs, nailed a throwback and it was too much for it to handle, and he jumped twice trying to rid himself of the oversized meal. And we have heard bass hitting crappie that we returned under the pier, slashing on the surface and even hitting the supports of the pier. Big fish are there!

Man, that's unreal. Friday was my first time to ever see the lake and we nailed several decent fish around 4 lbs. So, I went back and fished there all weekend. I talked to an older guy on the water in a Ranger boat that fishes the lake pretty regular and he said he has caught two bass over 10 lbs out of that lake and pretty much said what you just posted, to a "T". I knew it had to have big fish in it with a slot limit like it has. The threadfins were going nuts all weekend on top of the water.

Congrats!
Advice - don't carry a big boat over there - that ramp is ridiculous!! It's so steep I tore the cover on my spare tire on my trailer coming out. They completely screwed up when they built it!

Dude...You ain't kidding! It was something else. As soon as your trailer hits the water, it just drops off. If you weren't careful launching, you'd swamp the back of the boat and take on lots of water.
