    Decided to head up to henshaw to see if the crappie was biting and found this beast. Caught a total of 5 bass. All of them were fry guarders.

    Nice work, was there much of a crowd? I know the drive keeps people away.

    It was pretty full got there around 7 and there was about 20 or so people. Most of the crowd was targeting crappie with little to no sucess. Most of the crowd was on the fishing dock area just enjoying the sun catching carp.

    Seems to me that they don’t care if they are open or not, I’ve tried calling them for a week or more and no one answers he phone. I’ll be up there Thur. Is the launch ramp ok to launch a 19’ champion thanks. Almost forgot nice fish, what did you get it on

    I saw a bass tracker and a 20' pheonix out there, so i assume the launch is fine. Caught all my fish on a brown and orange jig and flipping a Strike King Structure bug in Green Pumpkin.

    Was there on Friday. Just saw a few bass caught. I did not see any crappie get pulled out. There were plenty of guys out on bass boats. The launch ramp looked fine.

    it is a good lake. Lots of cover. Fish will be more spread out. At least you will not be dealing with as many bass boats as Hodges will draw once it reopens.

    7 was the time on Friday. You need the code for the gate or you can’t get in. You can’t get the code until you check in and buy your permit. Call them and see if they will open earlier. 7 is late. 6 or 630 would be better.
