I will be fishing at clinton this sunday from a boat and wondering what areas of the lake may be my best bet. I am out to catch the best thing that is biting, unless that is a bluegill or drum. I know sonarman was going on friday and I would like to know how he did and what tactics he used, if he pleases to tell me. I also know crayphish is a veteran at clinton and knows alot so hopefully he can share some info with me. All i want is to catch some fish, any type, so please point me in the right direction. I will post a report sunday evening sometime.

Hey sonarman did u find any crappies or hear if anyone else was catching crappies in any other areas. I hear they are going around looking for places to spawn so if they arent in one spot id like to find another without searching all day for them.

Thanks again,
jason

shoulda been there thursday. but with the front work REAL tight to cover in 6-12 feet of water about half way down whatever depth your fishing. give them meat or some loud color. we nailed them thursday-friday pre front. averaged 11" fish but those succes rates are gone with the front. but you should still catch fish. work slow and TIGHT to cover. stay warm.
