Just to put this to rest, my buddy went there a few days ago and it was DEAD. I think he caught a couple and thats not bad this time of year. I've fished it for many, many years and it's never fished very well in the winter, leaches deep, come spring different story.... but can be a very tough lake with very well educated fish, but does have some pigs and they can be caught, think chonies deeeeep.... And leave Larry a nice donation.
I think the fish are keyed into something there and its hard to get them to strike other stuff. Last spring I was there and the water was loaded with daphnia. Fishing was tough. I pulled approx a 7lbr with a white boogieman twitched erratically off the bottom though.
