Burr Oak

  1. I heard from dnr that it will take affect next year.

  2. is it true that Burr Oak is a super clean water lake? I read that people go diving there because the water is so clear, is that true?

    No, it's not really a super clear lake. Maybe you're thinking about Lake Alma? Now that is a super clear lake.

    I took some young boys out on Burr Oak Lake yesterday morning and put them on a bunch of blue gills; and the lake was pretty murky. But it was clearer than I had seen it in the Spring.
    After dropping the boys off at the lodge. I fished for about two more hours and only caught two bass in the 12-15-inch slot limit. They hit my crankbait. Not worth mentioning, but what the hell at least I hooked-up on a few.
  6. I am coming to Ohio and going fishing @ Burr Oak on Friday. Where is the best place to fish for largemouth on the lake? I am renting a pontoon boat. Thanks John :)

    I suggest getting onto the ODNR web-site and printing yourself a Burr Oak Fishing Map.
    As far as suggestions, this time of year (after printing your map) you might want to try some cover on the deep sharp drop-offs in the main lake.
    There is some good cover near a riverbed/creek channel out in the main lake. Also, once printing your map, you will see where they have buried some pine trees/fish attractors.

    I've been chasing bass all of my adult life. And I think I lost my biggest bass ever hooked down at Burr Oak this last Spring. I drop a tear everytime I think about it... LOL

  8. For some reason I laughed out loud.
