Anyone do any spring fishing at horseshoe lake. In the summer I've been when its about 100 degrees and caught very good numbers of decent catfish, If you find a deep hole(6-10 feet deep) there will for sure be cats there because the whole lake is like 3-4 feet deep. I just want to know what species is targeted in the spring. I have been told by the guy down there, Jim Melton, who runs a fishing camp, that there is great crappie action in the winter also. Can anyone tell me anything they know about this lake.

thanks

Can't tell you anything more than what you already know. Shallow, very scenic. I saw a pair of bald eagles there that were catching more fish than what I caught when I fished it. I've heard that it's good for bass really early(march-april), never fished it though. I think that this lake suffers from the dreaded hillbilly harvest though. If you're headed down this way, I'd recommend any of the other lakes down here before that one.
