    Lake house rental

    Wife and i are looking for a cabin/lake house to rent for our anniversary week around Sept 1. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good place to stay? Would love it if a dock slip was included, and easy access to the water would be great as we both enjoy sitting in a lawn chair ankle deep. Thanks for any info NH

    Greenfield CC. Feb 5

    Well done. Main lake or in a creek? What was the water temp in that area? Thanks!

    You all did better than us. We launched about 730, off the water by 1230. Fished main points and swings with different dragging baits, a rig and jerk baits. Caught a couple on main swings around some timber in 16-18ft as it fell off into the main river channel but we struggled to find much. Id guess 1ft or so water clarity down river from CC launch and warmest we saw was 43.5 or so.

    I am anticipating very stained relative to the norm

    Thanks guys. Wasn't sure how a max depth of only 25-30 would change how they relate to swings and points. Looking forward to it, I'll let you all know how it goes

    Planning to hit the lake Saturday (like most everybody probably is with the forecasted temps for the weekend) and thought about launching from CC. Never fished that area of Stockton so i was hopeful someone could shed some light on how bass relate in that area in these water temp/conditions? Thanks for any input! NH
  8. Not too much to report but for what it's worth - Put in about 7 to calmer than expected conditions and ran down river. Decided to focus on a small area since we hadn't been on the water in months. Started on main lake points on the east side of the pictured map. Fished both points and inside the cove with jerkbait, spinnerbait, wart and a shaky head with one dink to show for it on a wart. Left to shoot across to the SE facing point of Wooley creek but it had a boat on it so we fished a couple wind blown swings inside the creek with no luck. Water temp was cooler as we moved into the creek (50.9down to 50 even in the back 3rd) so we worked back to the mouth of wooley. Caught a few a piece with only one picture worthy LM that went 3.7. Caught them just inside the point in about 8ft. Hit the next similar facing point to the north with one more dink and called it a day by 1130. Felt like it should have been better but there's some piece of the puzzle we missed on. NH

    Thanks for the report champ, that sums up at least part of why we struggled. Couldnt get many bites on moving baits but literally said to ourselves, "today is not the day to drag something, just wouldn't make sense."

    What to expect? cape fair to pt 12

    Champ, As someone who doesn't tournament fish, I don't worry as much about giving away my 'spots.' Surely anyone who comes to this site for info knows fishing wind blown main lake points is a good starting point. I get the vultures that don't contribute could be frustrating to you guys who tourney fish, but if those vultures are following my lead they're of no threat to win! ☺ The thing i hoped for after posting a detailed outing is getting detailed responses from someone else who had more luck. We struggled yesterday and we frankly don't know what else to do for more success.

    thanks noodle. the way the forecast looks i doubt I'll be dragging anything to 30ft. With you guys' info im sure I'll start at bluff ends and main lake points throwing jerk, wiggle wart, crawler, squarebill, spinnerbait... but will go check out some in the creeks etc. Will post a full report when i get off the water

    Thanks so much cheesemaster for the info, I'm also not one to fish deep with any success. I'm sure I'll have plenty to report of things NOT to do to catch em ☺. Happy thanksgiving!

    Friday night outing

    Launched at 7-ish from mutton last night, fished til about 130. Found them on a couple channel swings and points on main lake. Caught a few deep as 25ft before the sun went down then started catching them much shallower on those same swings. Also after dark found some off those swings in shallower pockets. Shaky head worm in black w/green flake did most the damage. Nothing too big, biggest was just 2.5 but a fun night with maybe 30 boated. Full moon is coming, planning to go back next weekend
