    Pappy, I hoped you would have found some decent Bluegill, but I have found my best luck is in the late afternoon. I tried fishing there this past Saturday, (6-15) off the nice dock they have. I fished 3 hours. (10am to 1pm) Caught only 5 crappie, and several small bluegill, but only 4-5 over 6 inches. 3 of the crappie (all Black were 11") Now, I may be giving up the best info, but I catch ALL the crappie straight down as close to the dock I can get in the afternoon with minnows. It's usually on the 'inside' corners of the dock. Seems they come in there around 4-5pm especially if a west wind. On the Bluegill, I take one pole and cast along the bank waiting for a crappie bite. You stay busy, but I'm not getting the size as listed in the 2019 report for the lake. Also, this Saturday, the ramp was PACKED with trailers. Must have been 25 boats on the lake.

    Yeah, you would think they'd hang around those pallet stacks out in front of the dock (in ~10fow) and ease into the dock & cedars late in the day. But, of all the casts I made out towards where the pallets are supposed to be, I never made contact with any ... so they may no longer be there. (or else I just never cast over one of them)

    May have to see if Carl (cjpar3) would be interested in taking a trip there and doing some Bass fishing. Probably have to be a daytime trip, as I suspect it's "skeeter heaven" after dark.

    Pappy, all I can say is that I've fished off this nice dock about 10-12 times in the past 2 years. I have found or hooked into NO pallets within 100 ft. of the dock in any direction, fishing 6-15 ft. deep around the dock. so they must not be there. ( I deliberately dragged a heavy gig on bottom to get snagged, but did not find anything) There are some small 'Cristmas' trees near the bank, but I've found them useless unless you want some 8-10" LM Bass, the lake has a lot of these. The 'Grass' stuff is still there. I finally tried to look for what this 'grass' might be on the internet. It looks like 'Coontail' to me based on what pictures I saw on the internet. I cannot fish anywhere near the bank without hooking into a string of this stuff when fishing from the dock. It comes up to around 2 ft from the surface in 3-7 ft of water from the bank. You will see globs of this stuff at times on the dock where people have snagged some of this stuff and left it on the dock. I stay about 10-15 from the bank when casting from the dock where it ends and find most of the panfish in this area.

    Here's the page I looked at : Corinth Lake Fish Attractors - Google My Maps



    Kinda wished they'd used the plastic pallet stacks out in front of that dock, like they placed on the two points up towards I75. And with the grass & moss that grows there, they probably wasted their time with the little cedar trees.
