I'll try the area, from the launch to the yatch club and damwall, deep slow and jigs, and finesse minnows near the damwall, mojo rigged Damiki leeches, play with distance from lure to sinker 1-2m , watermelon and purple in the pockets near old canal. weightless minnows, crank or spinner baits at wall, cast onto old koppie

I have also tried it from the side before, with no luck at all, not even a single nible. Must say that the water at the golf coarse side looks GREAT!!! This should be a great place for a comp. I think the problem will come in with the boat club there. If anybody has contacts to pass on to the powers that be, let's give it a go. The dam before that one should also be great for a comp, it is much bigger! B)

It's not a bad Lake, security of the cars at the public banks is my only concern. Maybe we can ask the boat club if we can launch there?!?!
