  1. You could always head a little south and put in at Tucker Hollow. The ramps at Beaver, and Shadow Rock have been useable lately too. I was just there last Sunday and we put in at Beaver. We had a tough day, but had no issues with access.
  2. It has been way under water, but I haven't checked in a week. We'd been launching off of the road at the end of the campground just past the bathrooms with zero issues though.
  3. The crankbait fish I was catching were on chunky rock with gravel around. All of them in the 1st or 2nd cut of a creek.
  4. Thanks sir. I actually tossed a jerkbait for a few minutes because I love that bite too, but they were eating that crankbait about as good as they can. I hated to leave!
  5. My wife broke her leg on Sunday and it's obviously put a damper on hitting the lake in the short term. Got done at the ortho dr and decided to make a super quick run to the lake and see if we could find any that wanted a Rock Crawler or a spinnerbait. We dumped the boat in at Aunt's Creek at 11:45 and had it on the trailer by 2:15. Not ideal but had 6 really nice keepers in that time all on the baits mentioned above and they all choked the bait when they bit. Looking forward to getting back out. 62-63 degree water everywhere we dropped the trolling motor and never went further than a coup
  6. We found a massive school of whites and caught the heck out of them on a jerkbait. Had two giant crappie mixed in with them. Before we got on that deal I had 2 nice keeper largemouth and a big kentucky. One on a spinnerbait, the other two on the jerkbait.
  7. FYI, the road is nearly impossible to launch from but we did it because we're dumb. I can't go again until next wednesday, but I'll be putting in at Beaver that day.
  8. Fished that area yesterday. Lauching off of the road is pretty tough. We did it, but had to back way down into the water because it's still a little low to do it safely. It's very flat. When we left, we backed down the curved road toward the parking lot and that was better. The dock is barely visible with maybe only the top 2-3 inches of the sign showing out of the water.
  9. I'm headed over there tomorrow. I know it's up and I honestly assume that if we go to K dock and not Beaver, that we'll be launching from the road. I'll try to remember to post an update on here on Friday.
  10. I was wondering the same thing. I can't take off work until Thursday, but I was thinking about hitting K Dock or Beaver. It has to be getting sketchy. Lol
  11. Water is blowing through the Springfield Lake dam this morning with more on the way. I'm guessing it gets to 920 with floaters everywhere!
  12. Stick in Beaver and throw a jerkbait. By next weekend you should get a TON of whites in there I'd think.
  13. I fish the upper end for the most part, but I can tell you that there are a ton of big bass in that lake. If I were looking for a game plan for late april it would absolutely depend on water temp, because if it's really warm you could even be catching post spawn fish on points and secondary points. I spend a ton of those days with nothing but a deep crankbait and a football jig on that lake and Table Rock for that matter. You could get lucky and find the lake around 6-10 feet high and most of the fish having not spawned yet. If that's the case I would load up on mouse or sexy mouse c
  14. This is why I haven't been throwing it for the most part. I was spending a fortune and even if I get it hung up, I rarely lose a regular jig. My keeper ratio was very low with the ned too. I haven't given up on it, but it's not in the regular rotation currently.
