  4. I hope you have reservations for the campground. We were there last weekend and it was nearly full. Couldn't get anywhere near the water and we got our reservations on Tuesday.
    Real nice campground & the crappie have been hitting pretty well lately, as have the smallmouth. Good Luck,
    Tim

  7. Use a green chartreuse 1/8 oz jighead with a green sparkletail grub. We tie on 2, about a foot apart.Have been tipping the jigs with waxworms. Crappie been hittin em when worked real slow with a steady reel. If you want a GREAT, sub, try the cheshire market, they have a double meat italian sub for about 7.50. Man, what a meal. Nice little bar there too ! Get you bait while there also. Pretty nice launch at cheshire also. Mike

    we fished around the state park ramp area shore fishing was good till sat when the boats muddied the area up and the fish shut down so brought the yaks out and the canoe and found some clean water and found more fish

    jigs and minnow
    worms drug with harneses
    rat-l-traps
    pinmans and wax worms


    nice lake water was nice i ended up getting fried but had a good time swimming

    there are some big boats on that lake i loved the party sail boat and 30-40 foot cigar boats (but glad its not my home lake i am sure it would get old ;))but the ranger boat triped me out it looked looked a repo from a drug bust or something never saw a ranger boat that big he was nice and asked us if we needed help because we were riding some of the wake near the speeding area he thought we were getting a little close and we would flip the boats........... when i fliped the yak upside down and then back over he said well you guys have fun haha dont think he ever saw someone flip a yak and then right yourself
