Very Good Bass

on November 13th

I fished for bass in the summer at the rocky end of lake. I have caught a one largemouth on worms. I had the most luck with purple finesse worms and brown plastic lizards. I highly recommend using the plastic lizard to imitate crawfish. The only problem I have with this lake is all of the vegetation at the bottom. It's very annoying pulling it off every other cast. Overall, this is a very nice lake with tons of wild life. There is also a bald eagle couple living in the trees on the far side of the lake. I highly recommend fishing here.

Fun place, better than Memorial

on May 26th

I was there 5/19, 5/20, and 5/26. Mostly from about 1:30 to 4:30 or 6:30. I fished the rock point where the creek comes in and the flat beach area about 3 opennings down from the oat house. Worms were the only thing I got a bite on. Bread, hot dogs, pretzels, meal worms and lures were ignored. Caught lots of sunfish, and 2 small largemouths. Going back today.

Day at Marquette lake

on May 19th

Fished near the rowboat house was there at 6:30AM to 12 noon using trout worms. The 7 trout I caught were legal in length but width was extemely small - size of an anchovie. But caught lots of panfish the size of dinner plates. Saw at one time 3 snakes swimming by and knew it was time to go. I think it is a excellent site, I go once a week the only negative comment is being a woman there are no bathrooms.
