would be appreciated. I've never even seen the lake and am heading up that way Friday. I may troll or am willing to fish off shore.

Any tips, lures, baits, etc would be most appreciated.

Thanks mucho

Inflated nightcrawler dipped in "roe" by the Marina. Worked everytime I've been there.
This what I caught the last time (May '08)
Pic of the Marina from the side we fished on.
My buddy caught some stockers on a jig at the end of the pennisula by the Marina. pic below
Good luck i hope this helps you out. on the way up stop at Virginia lakes I heards they are doing really good.

inflated crawlers all day. and if the fishing is slow there try bridgeport res. look for the floting milk jugs and cast in between them, its some of the best fishing ive ever seen. almost to easy

you're at South Twin? That's a purdy fish! Thanks for the tips.

BTW, I stopped in at Kens in Bport and they said don't bother shore fishing at Bport Res or trolling because there's too many weeds. It didn't look that way when I drove down by the dam. I think I saw the white buckets you're talking about. I will be back.

Thanks for the tips. I will always post what happens ... good or bad.

If you dont like bait and wait, Try the best.. Thomas Bouyant. 1/5 oz. in Gold or Perch.
Use a Spro snap, the smallest you can find. Go get em!

They said go down 5 colors for the Kokanee and Browns...Lower is nicer because of mph speed limit ... suggested the blue TBuoy also.
