Default Info Needed: Thinking about a fishing trip to Clinton Lake

Hey there! I live about 2.5 hours north of Clinton Lake and I have never been down there. I was thinking about taking my boat down and doing some bass fishing. I would be going down on a Monday. (My day off) I am looking for any advice, tips etc. How is the Largemouth population/size in Clinton Lake? I am strictly catch and release and throw only artificial baits. Any advice on what lures to try and locations on the lake would be greatly appreciated.

Also, where is the best place to launch my boat? I have a 17.5' Bass Tracker. Are there any launch fees?

Thanks in advance.

Run decent sized crank baits over where ever you can find rip rap.
