October 1st 2016
As fall starts to come in my dad and I wanted to take the boat out another time or two. I was already going to be in Lincoln for tailgating at the Husker game, so we decided to get up really early and hit a close lake to find some fish. As we pulled up there was a very heavy fog around the lake that didn’t lift for quite some time.
We started by fishing the first two piers nearest to the boat ramp. Within he first 20-30 minutes my dad had caught one small bass on a senko, I caught one on a crank bait off of the rocks. Although we had caught a few fish we weren’t getting other bites or catching other fish so we decided to move on. We then headed towards the north side of the lake and fished a few of the rock jetties and the flooded timber that was up there. Without any luck we decided to move back towards the south side of the lake.
We fished all along the southwest corner of the lake and along the dam without any additional luck. We threw everything at them, from spinner baits, crank baits, plastic worms, senko’s etc. Nothing seemed to entice another bite. We finished the day fishing around the cove the boat ramp is in since we had recently had luck there around the vegetation… still nothing. So since we had a football game to watch, we decided to pack up and head out and try another day!
Although today was still tough I love the lake and would definitely recommend it to friends.
Lake Ranking: 5 star
Today was slow but I have caught a lot of fish here over the years and I think that will continue. Plus the park area is a really great place to camp or take the family.
