Pull down to the right past the boat launch. you be fishing the bulkhead/dock to the left of the bridge.You'll see a concrete walkway on top of the bulkhead fish anywhere in there.

Drag, What are Rufus hooks? Also what's the best bait or lure for perch at this time of year? I used to use a small yellow Rebel in warm weather, but I haven't fished the lake in years. Would love to wet a line. Cabin fever and all that.

Phil,I use 3 Diffrent baits for perch. you can use garden worms, fatheads, or a little jig called a Rufus jr.On the jig use either a mousy,magot or even a small piece of worm.The fatheads seem to produse the biggest fish. Last year we caught em by the bucket full, all really nice fish using the fatheads. I've caught em using all meathods though. When the perch are running the action can be fast and furious its a lot of fun.if you have kids or Nieces and Nephews bring them along.

Guys I went This Morning. It was slow at first but it turned on about 10 or 11. They were really hammering the fatheads I was also hitting them on a little tube like bait called a mini mac purple with pink jig head seemed to work the best.
Couple of more weeks and you should really start to see some crappies
