while crocs are normally the best for cutties, this colored one worked quite well   tried different panther martins, the one that worked the best was bright silver with a bucktail   bronze wing, maroon body - it is the deadliest spoon on that lake

Lots of fish and they are eager to bite. You can see them jumping all over the place. I tried a dozen different spinners/spoons and Blue Fox with bronze wing and maroon body was amazing! I cannot keep the fish off the hook (switched to a single barbless hook to release fish). Most of the fish is quite small (10"). The largest I've got from this lake was 12.5" and locals told me it was one of the largest they ever seen there too. Check the map for the best spot. Once I've lost my best spinner I also tried different other with lesser success. Tried lake troll without much luck (no bait for me, only spinners). Did I mention the view?
