    Springfield Lake

    I have a tournament coming up on this lake in a few weeks and I have a few simple questions for anyone who has been here or even fishes it regularly. I plan on fishing it twice next week to gain an idea of patterns and such, but would like to know what the primary structure and/or cover is on the lake. Docks? Rocks? Stump rows? Any general information will help me prepare, not looking for spots and patterns as I will develop those closer to tourney time. Is it a deep lake? I also hear its a generation lake, does this effect the entire lake temperature wise this time of year?

    Thanks in advance if anyone responds, and if anyone needs help in Indiana let me know and Ill do my best to help out.
