try over by the road (pilot knob). There is rip rap that lines that bank. The only time I fished it in a canoe, thats where I caught them...about 3 years ago now

Used to fish the lake a couple years back and did good along the shore of the main basin(also the road). There are bass in there!

Have you tried Holland Lake, where Lexington runs into Cliff? There are some killer bass in there- just put 'em back when you're done!

You'll want a canoe or float tube. Once you get away from the pier the pressure is nominal.

I've found that Fish is a spring/late fall lake. Haven't had much luck out there in the summer heat unless the bait is either stationary or worked extremely slowly. Don't have any idea why. I've caught more bass ice-fishing out there than I hate June-July-August!

Yeah its not uncommon to see some real bass pigs out of Holland. All the fishing pressure comes mostly from the pier only. So if you want a chance to catch them hogs you gotta get out on the lake.

Fish still puts out a nice bass occasionally. But its nothing like it was 15yrs ago. The rocks by pilot knob road side is a good start.

This has also been a dawn bite lake for me. All of my best days out there have been early (before 10am) and then alot of time the bite will really slow. Good Luck!
