    RE: Crappie on Douglas or Cherokee

    Thanks for the reply. I fished at cherokee last Sat. and caught 1 small bass. The wind just about blew me off the lake. I started at Oak Grove, went to Rocky Holler, then up in Massadonia, Kept getting blown up on the rocks. I then decided to go up into german creek to get out of the wind. It started raining After six hours of this I was ready to give in to the elements. I have a camper at Cherokee Lake Camp ground and I may go on over on Friday and winterize, that may give me some fishin time friday evening, and Sat. Morning. Isn't pt 22 close to fall creek? I know of a cove across the lake there where I think sombody has put lots of man made fish attractors. I might give it a shot. Hows the striper action? Where is a good place to look for stripers now? what methods do you use? Are the shad still showing themselves sin the water temp. has dropped? What kind of boat do you have? Is it set up for trolling? Thanks in advance. Maybe some day Ill run into you over there. I really enjoy reading your reports and posts. Thanks.
