Fishing Tips:

  • If a topwater bait doesn't work, try a spinner blade fished at a medium level or a plastic worm, crawfish or lizard fished on the bottom.
  • Since fish move from level to level depending on lake conditions, the time of day, and the time of year, catching fish is a matter of fishing the right bait at the right level.
