Been out hear for about 10 yrs now fish off and on...found plenty of bass and crappie...have not found stripers yet...never really tried for walleye..my father n law says he used to catch them yrs ago...but since he retired a month ago he spends alot of time out there and has not caught anything other than bass crappie and pickerel!

I used to catch some eyes every year (biggest 25") fishing for hybrids at night. Haven't got any last couple years. Guy I worked with years ago, caught them back trolling crawler rigs, in the creek channel in the middle of the lake. Buckinuts, I had 5 hybrids, and one 18" largemouth the last three nites. Lost and missed some too. Got a 25", 8 lb hybrid last nite that towed the yak around. All by the swimming area after the storm blew thru. I would gladly show anyone how I do it, but no one seems too interested.

Good luck, I've been to Pinchot a couple of time the last few years and I can't figure out how to consistently catch largemouth out of that lake, or any other for that fact, way different than smallies on the river

I had to load the yak and gear. Tried to get a little nap and got there after 10. Thought maybe you were already up there so went up by swimming area. 3 guys in yaks up there fishing. I got a 14" largemouth. Then a 24 1/2", 7 lb. hybrid almost pulled me into the swimming ropes bouy before I netted it. Two others exploded on the lure and missed the hooks.

I was in the cove yesterday and the bass were real active before the storm around noon. I had to get out and try the fishfinder on my yak.
