Having only been to Lancer 2 or 3 times I have found it can be a tough, slow lake suddenly at times. I don't know why for sure since my old bass club used to go there a lot and had some great catches out of it including some giant bass, especially early in the year. As cameraguy says, there's no shortage of stuff to try there. I'll have to make it back there one of these days. (I still haven't forgotten the evening cameraguy and I WHACKED the big bass on little Lake Lancelot!!! Too bad I can't get on there anymore...)

Glad you caught at least a few small ones with your buddy FF! You'll get him out again I'm sure and hopefully catch some nicer bass then! Good luck!

Don't be too sure about that. 😉😁

On another note...
FFJ, it's great that your buddy, Joe, was able to have a good time fishing on Lancer. As someone who hasn't been able to go fishing much in the last few years (due to being busy, not poor health [knocking on wood]), I can confirm that just getting out is a joy.

As far as Lake Lancer, my parents lived in Sugar Springs on Lake Lancelot. I had some great days on Lancelot but really wanted to get to Lancer since it was about 4 times bigger (a little over 200 acres vs. 860 acres and seemed like it was a more interesting layout, to appropriate a golf term).

After getting a bass boat and the ramp being built, I was able to explore Lancer. It was (is?) a really nice lake. Had some great days bass fishing. It offers a variety of options from shallow water bays with scattered stumps, to weedy humps, to deep points strewn with stumps and scattered weeds.

It can be tough at times, but most lakes are. Lancer has enough options to make it fun trying to figure out the puzzle every time out. That challenge is the key factor for me. That and carving out a bit of time to get outdoors, on the water or on a trail.


   Thanks for the response cameraguy.  It is a neat lake.  Beautiful homes on it for sure !!!  Boy the way you describe that structure really has me interested.  LOL  Too bad I live at a distance.

Saw that Jeff mentioned Hamlin lake in his first post about taking his friend out while there on vacation. Didn't see any other word about the lake. I'll be there July 8-15th for vacation. Never been wondering how it fishes ? Anyone recommend any other lakes around the area ?
