May 8th 2015 Prairie Queen Lake

Got up early today to fish for a couple of hours with Sam.  She had never fished out of a boat before but loves to fish so this was going to be a fun new experience.   We both only had a couple of hours so we stayed in town and went to the new lake prairie queen which is just down the road. 

It was a beautiful day to fish and the lake is gorgeous.  I had never had my boat out on this lake yet so I was excited to see the depths and structures they added to the lake.  We fished the entire west side of the lake and everything was flooded under a free extra feet of water.  We even made it all the way up the creek and under the bridge to see where the water comes into the lake. 

We tried all kinds of lures and all different types of structure from rocks to trees to grassy flats.  We ended up catching 3 bass, I caught 2 but her she caught the biggest one so we called it even.  All three fish were caught on crank baits and in fairly shallow water.  It was a great short trip and we had a really good time.

Lake Ranking: 5 Star
This lake has some great potential and I love the depth they added to the lake.  This will become very similar to Walnut Creek after a couple years.  Good healthy fish and plenty of room for a lot of boats.  If you haven’t tried it yet I definitely recommend it.
