I have fished the lake with a friend who has relatives that own a lot on the "owners" side.
TWRA will be called on anyone who is fishing illegally. We were checked 2 out of the 4 times we fished it.
And it has some huge crappie in it.
My friend caught one when we were fishing that was 18 1/4 inches, 3 lb 10 oz.
He has two on his wall from that lake. One is 19 inches, 4 lbs even, and the other is 19 1/4 inches, 4 lbs 1 oz.
See, you just made me want to trespass even more!!! 🤦*♂️ crappie that size the bass HAVE to be even better!!!! Not sure what Iíd rather catch, 8lb bass or 4lb crappie.....
I have a guy at work that knows someone that lives there that might be able to get me in it. So, Iím hoping he can make it happen. Lol
