I'm gonna drive by a few of the southwest lakes tommorrow after work. I'll let you know what I see. I am determined to pull some more good largemouth out of Maple this year. I did GREAT in the early fall of '07. There are really good bass in there, i think a renting a boat is a must though to get to a couple of the few places not accessible by shore. I used some deep diving cranks last year in open water and was surprised at the amount of hits.

Everything is about iced out was at Tampier no ice so Maple is gotta be open. I would hit Papoose and possibly bullfrog, but don't expect any kind of good bass bite as of yet. Get some crappie minnows and waxies move around till you get a bite.
