Trip Description: This is a pure recon trip.  I have never been there, but a coworker goes every year and raves about the fishing.  Granted, he fishes from the bank with live bait.  Reports say the lakes holds large bass and perch.  (and has been known to be home to a couple of alligators)  Fishing can be really good;  it can also be very slow.  Best time is early in the morning.  The campground and lake are very nice…it will be a good paddle.

  1. That was a great trip. I caught 37 sunfish, and 8 LMB, all of topwaters. Everybody on this trip caught fish. On the water by 0715, and off by 1130.
