  1. went out today and caught one bass that looked like a minnow on steroids. they should rename this lake to the dead sea.
    nobody was catching anything. :mad: :mad:
     
  2. i have not had any luck there either. I've been there 5 times in the past 3 weeks and can't buy a bite. However, i have talked to people who said that they were catching bass. Not me! :mad:

    I’ve been there twice in the last week and had some success out both times. Last Thursday between the rain caught 3 myself and Luvthemhawgs caught one at 16.5 inches. Satrurday morning went out with the wife and dogs and caught 1 at 14, 1 at 13, and had a decent one come off at the boat. Has some more hits but couldn’t connect. It’s still early, but fish are starting to get into the shallows.

    Where were you fishing and what were you using? I was mainly fishing the gas lines using a 3 inch pumpkinseed grub in about 5-7 feet of water. Hope it helps!
     
  4. Try using small jerk bait real slow or slow rolling a white spinnerbait on the flats in 4-5
    feet of water.If you find weeds coming up;it's a bonus.

    Nimi been awesome this year for bass. Been catching them wading since February so it definately isn't too early.
    Went Saturday about 2:30 and was watching the Girard bass club tournament. Most had limits of 16-18" bass.
    I was waiting for them and all the bass people to get off the lake so I could do the walleye thing but ended up at West Branch AGAIN. (that place has been a magnet for me this year)
    So far this year fishing has been great all over.
    Yesterday hit a few carp holes(all creeks) and did some sweet corn chumming for the future. Fished the last one and got a 4lb carp and a 3ish lb channel.
    Went to a small creek in Amish country. This is where I catch chubs on my way to the Ohio river for cat bait. Caught 6 in about 5 minutes. Made me feel good that they are back this year. Threw them all back and gave them a half a can of corn for cooperating. I use a 6 hook with 1 or 2 kernels of corn to catch them.
     
  6. I seen a guy wading near me get two real nice bass while I was crappie fishing yeaterday looked like he was using a jerkbait.
