Big lake! It seems to be changing practically every year lately. You most likely will be flipping craws and creatures with heavy weights into thick weeds in the NW / N or SW parts of the lake. Get some heavy tungsten bullet weights, some pegs and some streamlined creature baits.

Sometimes spinnerbaits can work outside in the deeper weeds. Even jerkbaits once in a while. There's some deeper channels here and there, the rim canal and some channels in some of the bigger islands. Watch out for gators.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

Not to knock this site, but check out bassboatcentral.  They have a lot of followers from the South, might find a bit of info on what to do there.  Probably not much, secrets are hard to find, but some general info can guide your decisions.  Good luck.

  Congrats on making the team.  I have been down to that area many times.  I have some great friends in Florence, Rogersville and Hartselle.  :)

Maybe I'll see you on a trail or two.  I'll be fishing for West Virginia University if I don't have any internship conflicts.  Good luck!
