Ok Ruger, educate me a little on the 1000 acre lake.

Friend of mine bought him a new boat and we took it up there today. He's been trying to get some other folks to go for a couple weeks, so I went with him today to give it a break in cruise. We fished a little, but he was so excited about getting to go finally that he forgot to charge the battery for the TM last night. Oops. I caught one small bass. What's a good general area on that lake for catfish, and maybe a few bluegill and shell crackers.

Lake is super crowded on weekends. Next time you go, try te cove on the right side (Northeast) of the dam. Has a creek channel running 9' - 15' through it and has flats full of trees on both sides. My son and I caught 25 bass, shell crackers, and a few bluegill today on crappie jigs with spinners.
