Clear Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-07-16 22:35:29

Not much pressure. Water is clear and in great shape. Very little algae.  Buzz baits, chatter baits, frogs, punching all can account for bass. Keep moving until you find fish. Find one and you’ll find a handful more. Catfish will take catfish all over the lake. Jago Bay, Rattlesnake Island have been hot spots. Crappie and bluegill are hard to come.
