Well, after fighting the wind at LOZ Sat with no luck I decided to head over to Stephens Lake. Fished 3 hours and caught 13 decent fish. All were caught on a float 4 feet deep, jig color didn't matter. Got back home in time to watch the 99 crush the Las Vegas speedway!!!

NICE, very nice catch and dinner! Got any left overs? I got beat up yesterday on Truman with nothing to show for it. Glad you caught some. I almost got up this AM and went to Lamar lake to see if the bite was any better but the wind was blowing so hard I just stayed home.

Stephens lake, huh? I've never fished it. What's up with the fins on those fish, it looks like most of them have a piece of the tail fin missing?

Didn't think I was gonna catch anything so I didn't bring a bucket or stringer. My buddy did so I cut the tail so I could identify my fish. Also did it so nice Mr Conservation agent is happy.

I lived in Columbia when they were renovating that lake- they did a pretty good job too. They had rock piles around in certain places and designed it with fishing in mind, to an extent. I would strike while the iron is hot though- those lakes get fished out pretty fast, and a sustainable population in a lake like that can be a tough thing. You ever do good for crappie in Little Dixie?

Try searching for a thread I started last year about this time for info on Dixie. I'll just say that I've been known to catch a fish or two there.:D Probably caught 30 limits last spring, heck of a year.
